So I seem to have been er nominated to start this new thread… Anyway, let’s see how the new Advanced Render 2.5 holds up against the competition now that we’ve got the new area lights, faster blurry reflections and overall speedups!
Here is a scene from the free stuff section at evermotion.org (converted to .c4d with some basic materials applied but no lighting set up yet):

Original image: [img]http://www.3dfluff.com/files/fraktal_kitchen.jpg[/img] You can use this as a guidline but feel free to make it look even prettier. ;)
Use any renderer you like, maxwell, vray, finalrender etc… and of course AR 2.5. Hopefully this will turn into a nice big thread with some hard facts (ie pictures) to look at.
-------- Another edit: forgot to thank Simon Reeves for converting the max scene to obj. :D
