Abstract: Toy Story 4 reached new heights of visual storytelling with some of the most sophisticated cinematography that Pixar has created. In this presentation, Dylan Sisson showcases Pixar's core technologies that helped make Toy Story 4 possible: RenderMan and USD (Universal Scene Description). During production breakdowns and demos, you’ll see the latest RenderMan workflows for lighting and look development, featuring powerful interactive workflows for artists. Also learn how Pixar uses USD in their pipeline ... and how RenderMan and USD are coming to studios everywhere with upcoming support from SideFX in Houdini 18, and Pixar's newly rewritten RenderMan for Houdini. Learn for yourself how easy it is to use RenderMan with artist friendly tools for Houdini, Katana, and Maya. Come check it out ... there will be RenderMan Walking Teapots for a few lucky people, and you won't want to miss a special screening of Pixar's new animated series, Forky Asks a Question!
