Thoughts on Pixar's Renderman software? How does it compare? Thinking about getting it and I need advice.
>>
isn't it one of the best renders in the world?

As a renderer, it's pretty terrible. Many other renderers beat it in physical accuracy, e.g. cycles, vray, octane, mitsuba.

But it does what it needs to do to spit out a pixar movie, so it's clearly the best in the world at doing the job pixar designed it to do.

So I guess if you want to make pixar movies pretty much exactly the same way pixar makes them, it's not going to get any better than that.

have you actually used it? how about for speed an delivering clean images?

it's the primary renderer I use and I like it, it's better for animation than still images though (as far as I know -- I don't do stills)

you realize there's a free non-commercial version, right? you can try it out for yourself.
