Thanks Bernd,

I often wonder what people think of the renders EI generates compared to Maxwell and Vray. If you factor in the render speed and the ease of use, would it ba a viable alternative?

Joe,

for me EIAS has been a great renderer since I've started working with itů in 1996. Of course tools like Maxwell (I own that too) offer an additional range of realism, but the most important question for me is: do I need that? I don't. For the work I'm doing (see pics below) the level of EIAS' realism is sufficient, and that's achieved with almost no efforts. EIAS could create some pretty high end stuff, too, but that's not my world. I've got a well established workflow between FZ and EIAS, and I'm FAST in getting results. That's what counts for me. It's an efficient production tool for someone who doesn't have to create hyper-realistic image ads or fancy SFX stuff.

I really miss animating in EI.

Thank for the heads up, maybe I'll take a look the demo version... Curious to see how "fast" fast is these days.

"Fast" in my daily use also includes light and scene setup, texturing and materials, etc. So it's not only about rendering speed.

Hi Christian,

yes, sure I am

Well, that guy is wearing Latex gloves (required in a healthcare environment), that's also the reason for all those wrinkles in the lower pic. And gloves are pretty hard to show in a lineart style.

Oh sh##... I've never seen it this way, nor did my customers. It's just a folded, wet cloth. Now I have no idea how to UN-see what you've insinuated
