    I missed them talking about it but it sounds great Big O. You wouldn't happen to know if the series will be platform independent or windows only?

    Are those hours set or are they just an estimate in which case you should multiply them by a random number of your choice?

    As he said in the show they are projected time frames
    the times will vary greatly depending on how in depth he goes into each subject

    As with all hours given, they are what one would like to do them in... of course, what we like and what we get are usually two very different things.

    Yes... it IS platform independent. I use both Mac and Windows and I don't want to make software that limits me without a good reason why.

    Is the rendering suite an actual raytrace / other renderer or is it just a go between for other renderers? (an interface to render with another render such as mental ray from the Agents app)

    Cheers
