Pixar's rendering tools have been used to create movies like Toy Story and they have also produced visuals for other blockbusters like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.
Now the studio is going to release the package for free (for non-commercial work).

I've never used it personally, but I haven't been able to justify buying my old favourite Lightwave and I struggle with Blender, so having another high end 3D package available for modelling can only be a good thing.

That's awesome. I watched some behind the scenes stuff that looked into what RenderMan can do - it's impressive. I suspect this will be more for hardcore animators rather than game dev type work.

Probably, but a decent environment to model, rig and animate is always nice to have. Not sure what the output formats are like.

Plus it's only ~$500 for the regular licence. So you get a free professional workflow for your project, and a known cost if it ever goes anywhere.
