Because no one can choose it for you... seriously. We know nothing about your team nor the requirement of your project. So choose whatever your team is *already* good at.

Yes PRMAN is great but if you have no shader writer, no team of TDs to troubleshoot, no pipeline established, you won't get good results out of it. It's not an easy renderer to use.

If you and your team is comfortable with Vray go for it but if you want to invest money on a new raytrace renderer Arnold would be a better choice. If your project has lot of furry creatures etc. my suggestion would be go for renderman like PRman,3delight or Mayaman.
MentalRay for Maya isn't bad either if your know how to optimise and work with it.
There is no out of box solution which will help you unless you know your requirements.

It's the user, not the software that creates results.

If you need speed, then Maxwell isn't an option.
Brazils is not gonna be developed further so there's no version for 3ds max 2013.

Stick with mental ray or VRay, there are plenty of resources for them.

And don't use black text on a gray background, it's hard to read.

I'd go with VRay, there's a number of studios already using it for their productions (yes, including fantasy, sci-fy, etc). It is also quite versatile, it has a ton of render passes included and it has lots of goodies like IES lights and VRayRT (progressive real-time preview of your scene for lookdev). Not to mention, I believe you get around 10 render nodes included with a single license.

Another option is to ask for an evaluation license of the new RMS4. It has a ton of improvements for plausible shading and lighting, plus it is a lot friendlier than previous versions. It is still not quite as friendly and plug-and-play as VRay, though.

Speaking of which, is Maxwell still abysmally slow for most animation work? (Meaning you have 3-5 machines for DR tops) I love some of the images it outputs, and some of the animations they've been able to create with it (Alma). Its accuracy is gorgeous but I don't know if they have lowered the render times enough to switch from VRay to it.
