This release introduces improvements and some fixes to the previous release.

New Features

  • Support added for Autodesk Maya 2018

Miscellaneous Changes



  • Improved support for rendering alembic files in RfM, please see the documentation here.

  • Parameters of RenderMan nodes can now be dragged from the attribute editor to the Render Setup window.

  • Increased opacity and texture cache sizes to 4 GB, previously were 1 GB and 2 GB respectively. This should better match modern machines.

Bug Fixes

  • Maya projection nodes now render correctly when motion blurred.
  • Light filters now render correctly when motion blurred.
  • Loading an OSL file in PxrOSL would fail if the Node Editor or Hypershade hasn't been opened yet.
  • A bug that caused a secondary pass to always revert to OpenEXR when DeepEXR was selected has been fixed.

  • A bug that caused shading to be broken when rendering scenes with XGen and archives has been addressed.
  • "Start Paused" and "Extra Job Options" were missing in batch preferences. They were still honored but only modifiable via scripting.
