Бесплатный плагин Render Man 24.1 для Substance Painter

CG news

The free RenderMan plug-in for Substance Painter can now export Substance materials for use in other DCC applications in a format compatible with RenderMan’s Lama layering system.


Update 24.1 itself does not add any important features. Most of the changes are workflow and performance improvements, particularly improvements to the NPR Stylized Looks shading system and the RenderMan XPU heterogeneous rendering engine.
The update moves XPU, which is currently only recommended for interactive previewing, a little further towards providing feature parity with the existing RIS rendering architecture.
Key changes include AOV albedo recording capabilities and PxrOcclusion support for the shading model.
In addition, the new Blender RenderMan plugin for Blender was updated to support Blender 2.93, the current version of the software. The Blender and Houdini plugins now also support Python 3.

Render Man 24.1

The most important change for many users, however, will be an unofficial plug-in: RenderMan For Substance Painter, an open-source add-on by Pixar engineer Phillip LePrince that allows Substance 3D Painter projects or finished .sbsar files imported into Painter to be exported to the RenderMan pre-installed browser.

Users can now choose to export in a format compatible with Lama, a new layered material format added in RenderMan 24.0, as well as existing PxrSurface and PxrDisney materials.
New preset colour management options have also been added for OpenColorIO ACES 1.2 and the standard Filmic colour conversion in Blender when exporting materials.

Once exported to a preset browser, materials can be imported into RenderMan 24.1 available for Windows 10, CentOS/ RHEL 7.2 and above, Linux and macOS 10.13 – 10.15. Integration plugins are available for Blender 2.83 and above, Houdini 17.5 and above, Katana 3.1 and Maya 2019 and above.
New node-linked or floating licences cost $595. There is also a free non-commercial version.

RendeMan для Substance Painter  24.1 requires RenderManPro Server 24.1 and Substance Painter 2021.1 or Substance 3D Painter. It is available under an MIT licence for free.
