I've been looking at external renders for my Poser art, and having played around a bit with Luxrender and Reality I reached the decision that as soon as my cash flow perked up I woul go for the Octane solution. But the Smith Micro announced that they are releasing Poser 10 and all of the sudden I know where I am utting my money.
A bit annoying since I am finally able to enjoy my Poser 9, but hell, it will be worth it. And this time I am going for the pro package.
Good times are about to come rolling in.
