Yes, were're not begging for anything...just showing our desire for the next revision.
I'm sure it's much appreciated... ;)

Funny you should mention this, Panga...
I'm on the exact same page as you are...
Personally I can't use the GPU option as my crappy old laptop doesn't have a CUDA graphic card...
I will get a new laptop within the next month...
ATM I aim at a Dell Precision M6700 with Intel Core i7, Nvidia Quadro K3000M graphic card and a lot of other goodies...
This should enable me to take advantage of the GPU render options, but for most of what I'm doing, I believe the new field mapping render methods will be the key for me... :thumbup:
Yes Field mapping and all the UI adjustments in studio that Giannis talked about us last autumn...

My hope is that presto will work fast enough to use at client meetings, trying out different materials and other adjustments. Don't think it will make a big difference when working with prober renderings, but the quicker preview is important for us. Combined with theas nice and easy proxy system we hope to impress our customers and land some deals 8-)
The new bsd is probably more usefull then presto when making prober renderings.

At least I think ;)

Don't show it to clients! Will instantly reduce price or even make them do it instead of you. :shh:

There is no software in the world that can be used in client meetings to any advantage. ;-)

This just isn't done :crazy: :wtf: :roll:

Well, there is PowerPoint to make them sleepy, but otherwise, no way!

Cheers :-)

Well when you work with architecture, 3D is an important tool to use when studying shapes and can be used in the discussion about the choices made.
At least that is how we use it a lot, and the new rolls in thea render makes it even easier to impress the customers.
It's actually only in competition projects we make more traditional renderings.

Well i don't 100% agree with you on this, but i also agree that you don't put all your cards on the table without a really good reason. :)
There are customers that understand the time and investment it takes to do a job, those customers see the benefits of walking in realtime through a project.

In client meetings adjusting small things like colors and/or shapes or just by showing them the whole picture can result in a better input and understanding from the customers side and this will result in a better process and final result. But this is my opinion ;)

In the end it all depends on which customer is sitting in front of you. :)
