@BrownBagFilms lots of fond memories from shady beginnings. The early days of Gardner place to the lotts. Not to mention the Galway trips.

Lighting & rendering has become by far the trickiest part of the process so far! The fact we are using Renderman means we are working at a technical level way beyond anything we used in the past.

Hopefully the results will be worth it & here’s a look at some of the renders that we have produced so far:

Gorgeous results.Just wondering is it possible to get a similar result using mental ray and appropriate textures?

It’s looking awesome Doc. Can’t wait to see the characters in there.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone - Looks like study 04 is the winner at the moment!
David, to answer your question - it would be possible to get the same results with Mental Ray if you spend the time on it. Where Renderman is worth it, is when it comes to depth of field or motion blur it actually renderd these frames faster as it recognises that there is less detail in the image. This is invaluable when you are rendering at film resolution.
And Matthew, to answer your question…. ME TOO!!!! ;)
