RenderMan, the software created by Pixar for use in their animated films, has been made available to download for free.
The 3D rendering computer programme is now free for non-commercial use on Mac, Windows and Linux.
RenderMan can be used to flesh out animations and add realistic features, but also requires a separate 3D animation engine to use.
RenderMan can also be employed for commercial projects for the licensing price of $500.
Think animated movies are error-free? Think again.
Most live-action films are littered with little mistakes here and there, while animated films are produced in a painstakingly slow, one frame at a time. So, naturally, it would make sense for them to be completely polished, right? Nope.

Tom Hanks hasn't forgotten any of his famous lines! The Oscar-winning actor stopped by the "Late Late Show" with James Corden on Monday, where the two acted out every single one of Hanks' beloved movies in just eight minutes -- and it's pretty impressive. Check out the clip above to see Tom and James recreate memorable moments from "Forrest Gump," "Big," "Toy Story" and more! The "Captain Phillips" star was Corden's very first guest on his "Late Late Show," and the two definitely made James' cable debut one to remember. Our favorite moment has to be when Corden throws on a blonde wig, while breaking down into tears, to play Meg Ryan in the "You've Got Mail" bit. We also love that the 58-year-old actor still seems so incredibly passionate about all of the amazing movies he's made over the years. What do you think about Hanks and Corden's movie montage? »

Tom Hanks has delivered countless tour de force performances throughout his career, but the actor outdid himself on the inaugural episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden Monday, recreating the bulk of his filmography in a hilarious, frantic segment with the new host.
In under eight minutes, Hanks and Corden blasted through classic moments in movies like Forrest Gump ("Life is like a box of chocolates"), A League of Their Own ("There's no crying in baseball!") and Big, during which the pair expertly recreated the "Down Down Baby" rap and dance. »
James Corden made his American t.v. debut as the new host of The Late Late Show last night, and thing got off to a flying start when he and Tom Hank's acted out snippets from Hanks' vast back catalogue, from Forrest Gump to Toy Story, taking in The Burbs, Splash, and many more along the way. Check it out below. »

Last night saw the debut of James Corden as the newest Late Late Show host, as the British actor, who was last seen on the big screen in the 2014 musical Into The Woods, stepped in to take over from Craig Ferguson in the post-Letterman time slot, following Ferguson’s decision to step down from the role. Corden’s first guests included Jupiter Ascending‘s Mila Kunis and two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks.
Recreating Hanks’ filmography can be a challenge, as the performer has worked in a wide range of films over the years, from comedies such as Turner & Hooch to dramas such as Philadelphia, and even animated fare, such as the Toy Story films. Corden, however, took on that challenge last night, with Hanks in the studio to lend a helping hand. The resulting video, in which Corden dons the same wig to play everyone from Meg Ryan to Daryl Hannah, »

James Corden helped Tom Hanks reenact every one of his movies in less than seven minutes in an impressive start to the new “Late Late Show” on Monday. Hanks, Corden’s first guest, was game and great in going through a ton of classic comedies and dramas. The live-to-tape segment opened with “Forrest Gump” and closed with all three “Toy Story” movies. While there were many great moments throughout, the “Big” scene may have been the best of all. Playing opposite the beloved leading man, Corden took on everyone from Meg Ryan to cop-dog Hooch, to Meg Ryan again. It’s worth a watch. »

Lots of movies have titular lines, where one character or another says the name of the film in dialogue. One movie where you won’t hear this, however, is Pixar’s Toy Story. Magician Penn Jillette, best known as the vocal half of duo Penn & Teller, was one of the first actors cast in Toy Story, in a small part as the announcer in a Buzz Lightyear commercial. He talked about his experience on a recent episode of his Penn’s Sunday School podcast, and one of the stories he revealed was how he is partially responsible for the phrase "toy story" being excised from the movie, though in a roundabout way. Jillette used to host Movie Nights in Times Square in New York, and one of the traditions at these screenings was for the audience to clap every time the title of a »
Everyone knows Toy Story has a very recognizable cast under all that colorful CG — Tom Hanks and Tim Allen voice the leads, and Don Rickles and Wallace Shawn help fill out the supporting cast. But one of the very first actors cast for the groundbreaking project was actually Penn Jillette, of the magician duo Penn & Teller. Jillette […]

Now that even Pixar are making more sequels than original films, it's encouraging to see DreamWorks attempt to launch a fresh franchise story, but is it good enough to rival the likes of Despicable Me and Toy Story?
Based on Adam Rex's 2007 children's book The True Meaning of Smekday, Home follows an alien race called the Boov who, despite being rather incompetent, manage to take over Earth in order to hide from their enemy.
To do this, the Boov move the entire human race in big pockets of desert space, thinking they are doing us a favour in the process. On paper, if this plot was taken by someone like Neil Blomkamp or James Cameron, it could have been transformed into a rather terrifying sci-fi horror film »

“To be co-director on Toy Story 4 with John, who brought the Toy Story characters to the screen 20 years ago, is a dream come true,” Cooley told Variety. “When I first saw Toy Story I was amazed by the groundbreaking computer-generated animation. But it was the strong storytelling that kept me coming back. Toy Story 4 will continue that tradition and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it!”

No voice actors have been confirmed, but Toy Story 4 »
The return of Woody, Buzz and their team of merry toybox chums is on the horizon. Set to dominate the box office in two years’ time, Toy Story 4 is positioned to land in theaters in summer 2017.

Speaking with Variety about his hiring, Cooley says: "To be co-director on 'Toy Story 4' with John, who brought the 'Toy Story' characters to the screen 20 years ago, is a dream come true. When I first saw 'Toy Story' I was amazed by the groundbreaking computer-generated animation. But it was the strong storytelling that kept me coming back. 'Toy Story 4' will continue that tradition and I couldn't be more excited to be a part of it!"
Rashida Jones and Will McCormack are co-writing the film which is considered a separate story to the previous trilogy and will have more of a romantic comedy vibe. The film is currently targeting a 2017 release. »

Disney and Pixar have announced Josh Cooley will join John Lasseter and co-direct the upcoming Toy Story 4, which the studio has already slated for a June 16, 2017 release. Cooley recently told Variety, "To be co-director on Toy Story 4 with John, who brought the Toy Story characters to the screen 20 years ago, is a dream come true. When I first saw Toy Story I was amazed by the groundbreaking computer-generated animation. But it was the strong storytelling that kept me coming back. Toy Story 4 will continue that tradition and I couldn't be more excited to be a part of it!" When it comes to the sequel, we recently learned from Pixar president Jim Morris, "Toy Story 4 is not a continuation of the end of the story of Toy Story 3. Temporarily it is, but it will be a love story. It will be a romantic comedy. It will »

Though it floated in the rumoursphere in the years since Toy Story 3 effectively appeared to wrap up the story of Woody, Buzz and the rest of the playroom pals (aside from their appearances in shorts and TV specials), a fourth Toy Story film was officially announced last November. With a 2017 release date on the books, John Lasseter has picked Pixar veteran Josh Cooley as his co-director. Cooley has been with the company since legendary story man Joe Ranft hired him as an intern on Cars. Since then, he’s worked his way up through films such as Ratatouille, Brave and Up to become head of story on the company’s forthcoming release, Inside Out. And he’s also earned his director’s stripes making shorts, including one set within the world of Pete Docter’s film, which will be on the Inside Out Blu-ray. “To be co-director on Toy Story 4 with John, »
