Renderman Crash and how to fix it

A while ago I mentioned BFA was crashing while Renderman was rendering inside BFA and I could only render using RM's external view

Turns out its a Renderman to Blender plugin problem and here's the current way to fix it:

The plugin is really stable now, it was a crash fest until I found the fix thread, it crashed.. a lot, I think I was saving every 5 mins

Another thing worth

Another thing worth mentioning is if you download the file "RenderManForBlender-master.zip" you need to open the zip and loose the minus symbol before master from the name of the folder inside, otherwise the libary option doesn't work, I renamed mine to RenderManForBlender.zip
You need to remove the original version too Smile

This applies to BFartists and Blender
