RenderMan for 3dsmax - Work in progress 01

RenderMan for 3dsmax - Work in progress 01 from Mahmoud Hisham on Vimeo.

So, briefly this is the biggest project I've been working on for implementing RenderMan to 3dsmax ..
this in a non-official plugin it's just an individual work with +3000 line of code in 3dsmax SDK


here is some of RenderMan Features we got from this plugin :


- PxrDisney Shader is exact the same as the one in Maya,
so no worries in working on many software .. you will get the exact same quality!



- A bunch of render settings options, will be expanded in the next work in progress 02.


- RenderMan Area light with some basic parameters like :
Light Color, Exposure, Temperature and Shading Rate.


- RSL Shader is available so you can test your REYES shaders with RenderMan Shader Factory directly from your 3dsmax scene.



And Here is some pre-alpha renders we got from this implementation :






Lastly, Here's a list of what we have in this plugin and what is planned to see in the next work in progress 02






What we have got in this work in progress 01 :

- Exporting 3dsMax Objects to RenderMan.
- Implementing PxrDisney Shader to 3dsmax shaders editor.
- Implementing RenderMan Area Light to 3dsmax.
- Built a base for RenderMan settings in 3dsmax.



Upcoming work in progress 02 should have :

- Camera transformation fixed.
- Implementing more RenderMan Shaders.
- Creating more RenderMan Settings Options.
- Having RSL bridge with RenderMan Shader Factory to work.


I hope that you enjoyed it, and wait for the upcoming implemented features.
