With the release of the PowerMac G5, Pixar appears to be getting on board with Renderman for the PowerMac.
A Pixar Press Release notes that they are evaluating a full release:
- We have benchmarked PhotoRealistic RenderMan on Apple's new Power Mac G5 and have found the performance of the G5 to be impressive. We are considering a full release of our software for the G5, depending on customer demand and other issues.
If interested in Renderman for the Power Mac G5, Pixar is requesting emails to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Subject of "RenderMan for Mac", as well as to include your contact information.
