Looks like "mental ray for dummies."

Cool.

well, look's like it's just some easy-to-use rendering frontend based on mentalRay!

reminds me of discreet's cleaner somehow.

IMHO, not really a 'must have' killer app!

I think this will be a good solution for Product Designers who already know Alias Studio like most of us know paper, but who lack the knowledge and skill to exploit something as dense as Maya 5 to gain access to mental ray.

I can see this product fitting in quite nicely in ID shops who want to raise the bar on the quality of their pre-vis prototypes they show to clients.

But price will be a factor. It can't cost as much as Maya 5 Complete...so I am guessing that it will run $999 or there abouts.

$999! I can't see it being anywhere near close to that...at least...not if they want to actually sell it.

true...let's hope it is reasonable.

it is mental ray after all that they are selling...with a simplified front end.

we have several seats of Alias Studio where I work, so I can see this being a good thing for our Product Designers who really want to push their product pre-vis to a new level without having to learn Maya 5 to gain mental ray's edge.
