Product Description

Review

From the reviews of the second edition:

"RenderMan is a rendering application programming interface (API) associated with film production, an essential tool for creating many of the effects and images in recent animated films. This book is a self-paced tutorial that facilitates the understanding of many of the features of RenderMan. … The book has three parts: overview, geometry, and shading. … Overall, I found the book interesting, helpful, and a good introduction to the subject … ." (Howard Whitston, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (12), December, 2008)

From the Back Cover

RenderMan has long been associated with top-end film production and is an essential tool for creating many of the effects and images in recent animated films (such as Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo and The Incredibles). RenderMan is widely available and, with the demand for higher quality images, is now used by computer-based artists at all levels of the graphics industry.

Intended to provide a straightforward and easy introduction to the basic techniques involved, this book provides an excellent grounding, enabling readers to confidently move to more advanced texts. This second edition includes a new chapter on global illumination, and, with plenty of illustrations and hands-on examples, Ian Stephenson:

• gives an overview of RenderMan

• explains how scenes are described

• illustrates (among other things) how to create surfaces; colour; lighting; shadows; and depth of field, using RIB and the C API

• introduces the techniques involved in creating shaders, applying textures and using global illumination

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is being used as reading material on my uni course. Fantastic book to bring you up to speed on everything you need to know. It's not meant to be used as a reference, rather just get you up and running so you can explore render man and practice. (Reading is not an excuse not to practice :)
