So what does this mean?
This is a standalone renderer, or a plugin for maya and/or max, or XSI or anything other than LW?
It uses both the CPU as well as the video card's GPU in conjunction to render?
I'd give it a try but it says that in XP Pro x64 it will only run in 32 bit mode, and makes no mention of Vista at all.
