We remain committed to developing RenderMan, and here is a letter from the head of our group:


Greetings from Pixar,  

During these days of social distancing, our entire VFX community is facing unprecedented challenges. While we remain optimistic about the future, in the short term we appear to be in for a difficult patch. To help out in our own small way, we are announcing reduced pricing and deferred payments to support our users during this time. In addition, to help keep everyone’s creative juices flowing, we are launching a new RenderMan Challenge. Please find information about all of that and more, below.  

From our homes to yours, stay safe out there everyone.
