Diego, does "AIR" handle SketchUp files natively, or do you need an exporter as with some of the other rendering applications?

I liked the idea of this being locked w/o all the zillions of posts and notices of updates below. If we do lock it again, feel free to delete this post.

I though the idea was to have a single post at the top with all renderers. As someone wants to add a new one, it gets PM'ed to a Admin who then adds it to the list. Then there would not be a zillion posts like this underneath. Just a nice clean list. It doesn't have to be that way, its just what I was envisioning based on Coen's original post.

What is the best render to use in OS X?
Just recently convertet to OS X and don't want to switch over to XP to use V-Ray all the time I want to render something...
So what render is best for me? I am looking for something as good as V-Ray and not to difficult to use.

Thanks in advance for the replies...

Hei Henrik,

Unfortunately there isn't many render applications available for Mac...
But from the list available for OS X, I obviously would recommend Kerkythea... ;)

I wouldnt neccessarily say that iClone is a rendering program. Its a 3D animation program, I know because I make props for their movies (with sketchup). Here is one of my own short animations http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbmAvdIATiE (sketchup model).

Its useful (ish) as a rendering software though the results tend to vary.
