Rhino is a great tool that can create really high poly meshes and Thea can render all what it feeds.
Great image BlackIce. I for one, really like the lighting, it sets a mood. It's so nice to see Rhino renders on here too!
With a little scene and material optimization render time will most likely reduce.
So, so, true - with any renderer. I just finished a project yesterday and originally the renders were just taking too long for me. I went through all the materials and optimized them, got creative with some the lighting setup, and ended up cutting the render time per image to 1/3 of the original time!!!!
