    I'm sure that's the result of not being able to raytrace in Renderman. Try doing something in lw with shadow and reflection *maps* instead of raytracing, and see how it compares. Even "Frozen"...

    You still seem to think I'm comparing both total packages to each other - I'm not. Like I said, only a fool would say Avatar could have been done in FPrime. I'm just talking about their 'new...

    Like I said :
    "Obviously Renderman RIS has more to it, more open, flexible and built to work with programmers, and huge pipelines, 64 bit, etc."

    Nobody is dumb enough to say that 'FPrime is as...

    Not his oldest videos, but they are pretty old, 2007. And v3.0 of FPrime. And the interactive renders are better quality than...
  6. RenderMan catching up with FPrime... 10yrs later.

    Omg I don't think I'm ready for such radical thinking! :D

    I disagree - sure, for places they have to spend all of their budget or risk getting a smaller budget the next year... but I've seen 10yr old computers still being used in government - I'm sure...

    <Reminder> Big business is about one thing - and it's not customer satisfaction. Customer satisfaction is just one of many tools towards the end goal, higher and higher profits. Getting you to pay...

    Why didn't you clarify your position instead of getting offended, and ignoring/dispensing with all discussion on the topic? You can't imply something then accuse people of making false assumptions...

    I wasn't putting words in your mouth, it was formed as a question; is that what you think? What you said *was* obvious, none of us think we're being forced to buy the subscritpion - which means...

    I see - just treat your client as poorly as Adobe treats you. But what if your client decides to go somewhere that doesn't try to pass every dollar onto them?



    And keep it to yourself, don't...

    Why don't you email them and tell them they may as well charge 100, eh, why not 200 dollars a month. Are you really so happy to shell out more money when you're not getting anymore for it? They've...

    I guess it is even cheaper than a slower intel chip. You have to go back to an i5 just to get close to the price of the amd. But calling it an 8 core is still despicable.

    No, it was a new problem for that version as I recall, CS2 worked fine - but I'll agree that the way pshop handles alpha/transparency is archaic and foul. Just try making an alpha channel from pshop...

    Remember when CS3 came out, vfx artists using the "vfx" version of Photoshop found that it deleted any pixel's color data that didn't have an alpha value, in their .exr's. Lead Photoshop developer...

    Actually I just found that same site, I've passed it to my friend. The amd "8-core" really is a friggin' 4-core. How do they get away with that crap?

    But at the same time, don't you guys think...

    ShadowMystic - you must be surrounded by people who have cpu news delivered to their inbox every week - not everyone focuses on hardware so much.

    AMD 8-core - slow?

    Hey guys - I have a friend that just got a new AMD 4ghz single 8-core cpu, and it's way slower than it should be. I have a 4yr old Intel 2.8ghz dual quad-core, and it renders twice as fast as his....

    Aha, this is the kind of issue I figured I'd run into trying to make my own machine. Well there is a chance that apple's new desktop will be 16 core and similarly priced - nice to have options though...

    Oh you really should build your own cars. Not from scratch, but by completely rebuilding an old one. My neighbor just did that with a chevy truck, it's now rust-proof from the frame up, has wireless...
