which comes to roughly the same conclusions
oh my word, that’s terrible, he has no idea where to find the MR features to run a comparison. This all goes to show how lacking MR documentation is when you unpack your Maya box.
RfM is a damn good renderer in terms of speed/quality and ease of use, no doubt. It’s not very flexible compared to MR, or compared to the full Renderman package however. MR provides much more, a proper GI solution for one. RfM’s GI, er, isn’t is it ? I don’t think comparing MR to RfM is sensible really, t’would be better to compare it to Turtle or Gelato I reckon. They are two other products trying to provide the same thing as RfM, MR is something else really. Not only that, as Turtle and Gelato are renderers you also have to pay for a comparison would be more useful I think, considering the differences in price.
