RenderMan is now free for all non-commercial purposes, including evaluations, education, research, and personal projects.
It’s a great time to be a CG artist. There are more and more tools at your disposal and learning Renderman is a great way to make your work look amazing and who knows, to find a job at Pixar.
You can get Renderman here
I always like to remind people that as great as these pieces of software are, they remain tools for you to use. It’s the way you use them that always makes the difference.
Below is a small video that shows the Interactive Re-rendering inside Renderman.
At CGCircuit we love when industry professionals choose to publish on CGCircuit’s platform but our goal is not to sit back and let the authors sail solo. As a company we are author oriented! Providing support and inspiration is part of what makes CGCircuit unique.
Let us introduce you to the info-preneur!
“SAY WHAT?!” We know- what is an info-preneur? Well for one, it is a made up term by our very own Carlo Sansonetti. Lets start with an entrepreneur. Most are familiar with the term entrepreneur, they are someone who has a creative idea about a product or design and they are striving to get it produced. The difference between them and an info-preneur is that an info-preneur already has their product. The info-preneur’s product is their knowledge!
Today at CGCircuit we are excited to share with you our newest feature that gives users a way to embed free tutorials on external websites! Say that you are browsing through CGCircuit and see a free tutorial, you now will be able to post it on your blog or own website using the new icon on the top right corner of the video player. This feature is useful for personal promotion and bloggers. Here at CGCircuit, we are proud of our player and its features.
– Our player lives in its own window, allowing you to practice as you watch and learn
– The drop down menu gives quick access to the entire structure of the course and also provides the ability to skip to specific videos. This is extra valuable when courses have multiple chapters and videos
With this new embed feature, sharing your work and CG love is a breeze. You take those effective features and ease with you when you embed our player in another web page!
Thanks for reading our blog post and being a part of the CGCircuit community! One of our favorite things is getting e-mails and comments. All of the user communication allows us to implement new features and improve existing ones. That said, we would love it if you would comment below and share your thoughts.
Until next time, Happy Learning and Happy Teaching!
