RenderMan free for non-commercial use

Unread postby jan-jaap » Fri May 30, 2014 10:50 am

New Pricing for RenderMan
RenderMan now costs $495 per license, providing access to either the artist interface
or the batch renderer. For requirements larger than 25 licenses, attractive custom
studio packages are available providing additional Peak Render Capacity and
volume discounts.


Free Non-Commercial Use
With the upcoming release RenderMan will be free for non-commercial usage.
Examples of non-commercial use-cases include evaluations, personal learning,
experimentation, research, and the development of tools and plug-ins for RenderMan.

Of course the IRIX version has long been discontinued ...

To accentuate the special identity of the IRIS 4D/70, Silicon Graphics' designers selected a new color palette. The machine's coating blends dark grey, raspberry and beige colors into a pleasing harmony. (IRIS 4D/70 Superworkstation Technical Report)

Though development apparently stopped 6 or 8 years ago, DrQueue claims to still run under IRIX. One of the developers (possibly the lead developer?) is a member here, albeit a very inactive member, I believe his member name is comadreja

World domination! Or something...
