Pixar’s upcoming feature film, Onward, combines the mythic with the mundane, as two brothers try to find magic in the suburbs. During this talk, Dylan Sisson will preview footage from Onward, breaking down scenes to show how Pixar approached the stylization of this unique world. Watch Onward’s “magic” dissected from initial concept art to simulation in Houdini and final render in RenderMan. Learn where the state-of-the-art in RenderMan is today in PBR (physically based rendering) … and look ahead to see how new NPR technology (non-photorealistic rendering) is transforming RenderMan into a tool for broad look development, from physically based looks to new kinds of looks, from illustrative, to anime, to painterly styles. During a live demo see how these NPR techniques can be created in a live rendering session without compositing. With artist friendly tools for Houdini, Katana, and Maya, come check it out ... there will be RenderMan Walking Teapots for a few lucky people.
