i’ve been reading this thread…prman vs mray
and for awhile now i’ve been thinking how does the c4d renderer stack up against the rest…i mean i love the results from the c4d renderer…but i’m not exactly pushing it! the discussion in parts is over my head…but very informative…and worth a read…alot of the discussion is based around film makers needs which is only a part of the equation but obviously still still relevant…but does affect there requirements from a renderer as they are limited by time and the quantity or frames…rather than quality…often having to fake results rather than use them in anger.
what do we have? what don’t we have? what do we want? why can’t we use other renderers like other software seems to support…eg maya/xsi supporting mentral ray etc…and max brazil.
part of the discussion mentions that prman is open and hence flexible but also more complex as a result of this flexibility…they also mention prman stability…
i would just like to know what peoples take on this is…presumably its holding c4d back…or is it?
alot to answer i guess but hopefully something to get you all thinking…what you like or don’t like…and how we stack up.
