    Anyone have experience with Renderman? I always thought MentalRay was better, since Renderman cannot compute raytracing and radiosity.

    Not in my line of work unfortunately. :( Good to hear that it is going to be available for OSX as well as PC though:)

    What was RenderMan previously? I thought it was always a renderer for Maya.

    The "new" product is a plugin instead of a standalone program. It was announced 15 months ago :D

    [Edit: I see, it was in beta all that time! release thingy ]

    Ah, I first heard of RenderMan ~12 months ago, so it was probably the same thing :)

    In other news, I insist that you change your avatar :eek:
