    The new version looks outstanding! The interplay of lighting and the additional shadows / shading really add to the composition!

    Beautiful work!

    It's a very strong piece and the particle effects are very good... they just need that little extra work to composite better with the vehicle.

    Thanks for sharing your work... I am anxious to see...

    I was adding source, copyright, and usage data to various graphics and source files for a project I just finished, but when I went to add metadata to the model and scene files, Adobe Bridge told me...

    No you're not. As you mentioned, it had been discussed, but they just don't seem to want to go that route.

    I wonder if some of Mark Warner's work with FiberFX animation might lend itself to some excellent lightning?

    Maybe FiberFX with animated surface displacement?

    I have several systems on my team that aren't connected to the internet and the manual activation is a major pain in my backside.

    I don't think that it's the criticism so much (because most of your points are valid) as the venue.
