Pixar has released Renderman for OS X.3.1 including Alfred.

I like the output that Renderman renders but is it worth it, is this for Maya customers only or can lightwave take advantage of the Renderer.

What I have seen is that there is no easy way to convert a LWS into a RIB. What do you guys think

You have to ask yourself why you would want PRman or Maya. The reason studios use them is because their armies of technicians can adjust any aspect of these programs.

Chances are you don't have an army of technicians at your disposal to configure PRman.
