VRAY public beta for Softimage

Yes - Vray is lurking around the Softimage platform and the last time I looked at it, it was around Siggraph 2008 at the Chaos Group stand in secretive whispers.

So a public beta has just been announced and im taking it more serioulsy than usual - as Vray is already a very well established renderer, plus it means you might be able to get a decent render out of Softimage. It always took 10 times as long to get something good out of Softimage in my working experience, having worked with it for 5 years at a previous employer.

Fellow 3D artist Simon Reeves has already embraced the implementation and done some encouraging imagery - so when i can find a spare few minutes, i think i'll join in the public beta and see what comes out the other end....
