yeah - didn't really do much for me - it just didn't seem that realistic - like the way the crack went across the pavement, taking no account of the tiles, or the explosions which just seemed flat and kind of slapped on.

Guys, Master Zap has been around a long long long time. I recall meeting him first years ago on the TFN Star Wars fan films site. Read some of his mentalray threads over at CGtalk and your head will explode.

Very smart cat.

Indeed he may well be a very smart cat on the rendering front, and have been round for ages.
