Hello one hello all;
Alright folks, forgive me, but I am a complete newbie to the renderman shading
language, and have a slew of questions. I have been using rhino3d modeler for
quite sometime now, and have had some great success, except in the rendering
department. I'm not entirely satisfied with rhino's renderer. But I was
stumbled upon BMRT and I got e*d because of the quality of renders in the
gallery on the BMRT homepage. My questions are the following:
Must I have any compiler other than slc to use BMRT?
Where should I start in order to become proficient in the shading language, in
a C programming book, or in The Renderman Companion by Steve Upstill?
Basically, where can I get more info that will kickstart me into action? Is
there any documentation that explains every function and variable etc?
Thank you for any help you can offer
