Pixar's first Renderman Shading & Lighting Challenge

Some people here might be interested in this -- Giorgio, I hope you don't mind my mentioning it here. Pixar is starting a shading and lighting contest, and has made a nice 3D scene available to download and render:

https://renderman.pixar.com/view/art-challenge

https://community.renderman.pixar.c...up-asset-1.html

Anyone can download this scene in a variety of file formats (in the second link it looks like Maya, FBX, OBJ, and Blender versions so far.) This is a nice 3D scene originally made by one of the PUPS. (PUPS = Pixar Undergraduate Program, which is basically one level of internship at Pixar.)

In part because I've been involved with these CGTalk Lighting Challenges over the years, they asked me to be one of the judges for the contest, so if you enter anything there I'll see it.

Is it required to use Renderman?

Yes, sorry. Of course you don't need to use Renderman to download the scene, anyone could do that now, but if you want to enter Pixar's contest and win the prizes you'd need to use a Pixar Renderman renderer -- although the free trial version would be enough for that. Quoting from the FAQ on the forum:


Quote:
Can I use other RenderMan compliant renderers?
No. Only official Pixar RenderMan plugins. This includes the RenderMan plugins for Maya, Blender, Houdini and Katana.

Can I use a previous version of RenderMan?
Yes, you can use RMS 20. As an interior scene, we encourage you to use the latest pathtracing tech (RIS) in RenderMan 21.

Will I need to submit my scene for review?
Yes. A full project is needed to be eligible to win. Pixar will provide a BOX folder for finalists to submit their project.

Ah ok, thanks Jeremy.

Too bad there is no Renderman for 3DS Max... :(

Maybe the scene could be used for a challenge on here aswell? (any renderer allowed)
