About the Documentation

The Documentation

This documentation covers how to use RenderMan for Maya. It contains reference material intended to familiarize you with the features and interface, tutorials covering how to use RenderMan for Maya'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 Exploration section delves into the ins and outs of using RenderMan for Maya, including RenderMan-specific techniques and effects. Advanced Topics covers advanced scripting methods, customization, and digging into the nuts and bolts of RenderMan.
