and I'm curious about a similar setup with Lightwave. I saw a movie over a year ago at
one of the Bay Area Lightwave group meetings about a Mars lander-- Pathfinder -- that was set up
in Lightwave and rendered with Renderman, via Lightman. Or at least thats what I later heard about how it was done.
Anyway, if anyone else out there is interested in this, or has done it, please post!
