Download Pixar’s Rendering Software – For Free!


Disney films have long held a special place in the hearts of children. Generation after generation hav grown up on the entertainment giant’s products, and many have been inspired to create their own films. Now, for those that have been itching for a way to create 3D films similar to Disney’s UP or Toy Story, there is great news.

RenderMan, Pixar’s industry leading software used to simulate extremely realistic lighting on 3D objects, is now free to download for non-commercial use on Mac, Windows, and Linux. While there are no time limits, watermarks, or other restrictions on the software, animators looking to release their own films either in theaters or for other commercial purposes will have to license the RenderMan platform for $500.

While the price may seem steep, it is a figurative drop in the bucket compared to the time and quality of the tool that Pixar has made available to the public. Learn more about the app, the technical requirements, and how to download it here.
