RenderMan for Houdini

[ # ]
Pixar has announced RenderMan for Houdini (RfH) - the bridge between RenderMan 21 and Side Effect’s Houdini. Developed for Pixar's own feature films in technical collaboration with Side Effects, RenderMan for Houdini (RfH) is a robust plugin that now ships out-of-box with Houdini 15.5 (and beyond) at no additional cost to your Houdini license.

Key benefits include support for the advanced features in RenderMan 21 including the RIS framework, Analytic area lights and a sophisticated shader suite, including Pixar Surface, the same material used on Finding Dory. You can find detailed information for RenderMan for Houdini on our new documentation and download Houdini 15.5 from sideFX's official downloads page.

RenderMan for Houdini is compatible with these Artist Tools available separately from Pixar. For commercial customers, one Tractor license is included with each RenderMan (including a year of free maintenance for Tractor).
