    I listened to this today and enjoyed the discussion. I saw a link at to a product called Shader Light. Do you use photo rendering much? I am tying to find out the best way to go with rendering.

      Hey Jeff,

      I have just begun starting to research all the different rendering software out there. There are a ton of great options out there, but what I’ve found so far is that the more complex the program is, the more time it takes to configure your settings but the end result is phenomenal. On the other hand, there are programs like Shaderlight that are very easy to use, and produce great results in little time. I’d recommend checking it out. They have a 14 day free trial for the pro version. I’m digging into it right now.
