Default Any way to render smooth mesh wireframe?

Hi guys,
Just wondering if anyone would know of a way to render a smooth mesh wireframe? Not actually hitting smooth then render with vector, but kind of like hitting number 3 for smooth mesh preview, and having wireframe on shaded on.

Your best bet for achieving that is to take a UV snapshot into Photoshop and adjust it to the colours you need then use it as a material on your smoothed model for the render.Of course this does mean that your Geo has to have the UV's layed out first.
