During SIGGRAPH 2022, we had the chance to chat with Pixar CTO Steve May & to discuss the latest RenderMan improvements (new denoiser, XPU), how Pixar manages to turn research projects into features ready to be used by RenderMan users.
We also discussed USD: is this 3D scene description format really the key to the metaverse? Is it ready for it, or is there still some work to do? And how does Pixar & other companies work together on improving it?
Steve May also gave us his take on Omniverse, and explained how Pixar gets inspired by SIGGRAPH.
