Wait....this thing is computer modeled? I thought for sure it was a physical build. I'm going to have to look into this Cinama 4D V-Ray, because the ray tracing, shadows and texture display on this is amazing. I've seen beautifully rendered images by amazing model/texture artists before, but haven't known of a rendering system that looked this perfect.
*snoops on google* And it's the Vray that does this? 0.o Looks like it has a much higher processing component then what I'm used to with Maya's ray trace. Though I imagine you machine must be fairly speced to handle the demands.
True. /How/ you render does make a very big difference. Though stuff like Ray Tracing would kill the poor laptop I have, even with the upgrade to RAM I made. Our school computers could barely handle it on certain projects, and it takes forever to render out. But it is so worth it if you can pull it off.
