The following operating systems are supported for this release. RenderMan may operate outside of this requirement, but it may be unstable and is not supported:
- Microsoft Windows 8.1 or newer 64-bit
RenderMan is designed to efficiently scale across many CPU cores, so while the above is a minimum requirement, systems with multiple processors will see the best performance.
- All: CPU capable of running the full SSE4 instruction set.
- Maya: Compatible with 2019, 2018.3+ & 2017.3+
- Katana: Compatible with 2.6.4, 3.0 & 3.01
To install the software, simply double-click on the appropriate MSI file, and click through the various dialogues. The default values are appropriate in most cases.
