Antti, the author responded to an e-mail I sent about OSX... here is his response:

If any luck... Sometime next week!

AWESOME, thanks Antti :thumbsup:

Julez, he did the steam with the same plug.
Don't know if that feature is available in this release or in an update in the future.

here is a test movie Antti did (http://koti.mbnet.fi/anttij77/Site_Downloads/Tracer3.avi)

and here is the thread where he announce the plug.

Hello ladies and gents!

Got bored this morning and ran some general test situations. Beveled out a sphere and applied different shaders just for fun and games. Thought maybe the results could be of use to someone somewhere, so here goes.

All three of these pics were rendered at 640x480, Enhanced Low AA, Ray traced transparency, reflection, refraction and shadows - ray recursion cut down to 4.

Coffee - 3 min 38 sec.

This one was ASA_LASI - 2 min 26 sec

HD_Caustics. 4 min 2 sec.

I've got all the inside and outside surfaces saved as presets, so if anybody wants to play, post here and I'll get them to you. I would say drop me an e-mail, but I'm in the middle of switching computers and uninstalled Outlook without thinking. I know, duh.

It's allways fun to play with other ppls stuff. Send it to me! Or maybe you could post the presets here?

Well, it is an OS9 version it didn't work in OSX:thumbsdow


I am 100% carbonized and don't want to launch classic ever again. I guess I'll ask for an OSX version and see what happens.
