Camera Projections are the lens through which RenderMan views the digital scene.  You can create custom projection plugins using C++.  RenderMan comes with three plugins:  PxrCamera, PxrLightProbe, PxrRollingShutter, and Omnidirectional Stereo projection which renders images in a format suitable for VR viewing.

See Projection Plugins for more information.


Custom Camera Projection

In your RIS Network, create a PxrCamera VOP.


Only one custom projection plugin can be added to the camera.

To use the custom camera projection, add a ri_lensshader.  Label it "Lens Shader".


Drag the camera projection VOP to the Lens Shader parameter.
