This project demonstrates the basics of how a 3D scene is represented by Pixar's RenderMan scene description RIB file. Such RIB files are normally generated automatically by applications such as Houdini or Maya (plus Pixar's plugin). However, manually writing RIB files using a text editor focuses attention on the way that "elements" such as color, opacity, shading, lighting and coordinate systems are presented to Pixar's PhotoRealistic RenderMan rendering system.
