About the Documentation

The Documentation

This documentation covers how to use RenderMan Studio. It contains reference material intended to familiarize you with the features and interface, tutorials covering how to use RenderMan Studio's special features, and the advanced technical manual for Pixar's RenderMan. The documentation is not a substitute for Maya's documentation.


The documentation is broken down in three sections, each taking you progressively deeper into RenderMan. The Fundamentals section provides a basic overview of the software, outlining the features and introducing the interface. The Tools covers specific functionality and features for each component of RenderMan Studio. The Exploration section delves into the general ins and outs of using RenderMan Studio, including RenderMan-specific techniques and effects.
