PolySmooth & Mental Ray
Tried 2 renders of a character of mine, one with polysmooth and MR, and one with Maya Software and SubD. Both looked about the same, except MR seemed to be a little more crisp in the eye area. Of course, I haven't really gotten into rendering yet, which I'm sure will create some huge differences, especially once I have some backgrounds in the scene as well.
Thanks for the tip about Polysmooth, I had thought about using it before, but thought that I might lose render quality or time. Polys definately render faster, less calculations, correct? Originally I was going to model in Nurbs, then I tried Polygons, lol.
***Sure Enough, Mental Ray will render SubD, just not 5-Sideds.
I got an email about the Mad Scientist with the Lab CD a while back, I think it would be really useful, I'm going to order it. I've got a couple characters, I made a psd file for the image planes so they'd all be the same proportions to each other. Now I just have to size sets properly and create props for them.
Thanks for you time
