In RenderMan (Blender) where are the basic camera controls to affect the lighting

Hello!! How can I modify the exposure on each camera in Renderman? “Shutter speed” and “Fstop” only affect the depth of field and motion blur, but do not modify the lighting. I need to have each camera with its own exposure settings. Typical in any engine like V-Ray, Corona…

Issues Loading Renderman into Maya?

Hi! I am using an educational license for Maya and have been using Renderman at school. I wanted to use it at home but am having trouble loading it in. Renderman says the download is successful and has been installed but I do not see it in my Plugin Manager 😔. Any ideas on how to fix that? Also I am using a Mac, I don’t know if that causes any issues.

RfH 2D Vector Motion AOV (H19.5, RenderMan 25)

Hi I want to use AOV motion vector for compositing later, how can I do that ?

Follow a Maya tutorial on RenderMan 22, it is tick check box `2D Motion Blur` under `Allow Motion Blur` feature. Then add AOV `dPdtime`

The AOV, it's black for me, my scene is simple a sphere translate by 1 axis in 30 seconds. What is the solution ?

Renderman on Maya texture issue

Hello, I have a problem rendering my displace and bump map texture.

I have 2 udims on my character but I don't know why we can see a line between the 2 udims (the line near the neck).

Moreover, the texture isn't rendering good on my character (no displace on the face) while it's seems to work well on a plane.

Does anyone have a solution to that please ? It's quite urgent 😓

Beginner Question: Rendering a single frame in Maya?

I have viewed tutorials on how to render an animation, but how does one render just a single frame? I am modeling an environment with no camera movement or animation involved.

Lama vs Pixar

Are there any benefits to using Lama over Pixar shading right now? Is it faster in some way?

If it's not a premiere problem, it's a renderman settings problem

So i've been attempting to use my friends computer to get additional renders done while using my other computer. however a problem i've come to encounter are these renders coming in black when imported into adobe premiere. despite every setting on both machines being set the same, the rendered batches are producing different results: with the ones produced of the 2nd computer producing camerashape.rib/xml files.
