Sublime Text / Renderman

June 10th, 2012 . 6 comments

Today I tried out the super nice Sublime Text editor for writing Renderman shaders, and liked it enough to buy a license immediately. Looks like it’s made here in Sydney too!

To improve the workflow a bit, I made a little language pack for Renderman SL. It includes a syntax package for highlighting, which mostly inherits the C syntax, but adds a few extras for SL data types (eg. color, vector) and some global shader variables. It also contains a ‘build system’ for shaderdl, 3Delight’s shader compiler, which lets you compile a shader quickly with a hotkey. It should be very easy to copy that for other renderers/compilers too. It’s all pretty basic, but does enough for my needs.
