TIP: Easy installing Renderman on Windows

Recommended Posts

After downloading and installing Renderman to its default location, the simplest solution is to put following lines into your Houdini.env as well the Rmantree as a seperate entry in your System variables and appending the path with the @Rmantree. But! in the path variables of your System use $ instead of @. Forward slashes are valid for all three targets.

RMANTREE="C:/Program Files/Pixar/RenderManProServer-21.2"

Thats it.

Try adding these lines in your houdini.env

My houdini env looks like this:

RMANTREE="C:/Program Files/Pixar/RenderManProServer-21.3"

Then my windows system environment variables look like this




C:\Program Files\Pixar\RenderManProServer-21.3\

and make sure you edit the rendermn.ini file to recognise houdini:

/displaytype/framebuffer          houdini
