Stand Alone with RenderMan
Call RenderMan as a simple executable from the command-line, and render 3D data in RenderMan’s native RIB file format. These RIB files are the backbone of any RenderMan pipeline and are highly customizable, offer Python bindings, and allow many types of data to be converted to RIB and rendered with RenderMan.
