josephus Posted April 14, 2006 Share Posted April 14, 2006 We're a very small architectural firm and have so far been using FormZ for modeling and rendering (Lightworks Renderzone). The FZ renderer produces good exterior images, but the interior images are IMO very lacking compared to some other renderers, like 3DSMax (won't bring Maxwell into the picture at this point). Actually we did purchase Maxwell to do still interior renders and believe that will work out great >April 26. However, we are now also doing in-house animations of our houses for our clients, and I'm wondering about switching to 3DSMax, not so much for its animation capabilites since FormZ is coming out with all that we need, but for it superior (fast) interior rendering capabilities. The cost of the software is not particularly a factor, but I really fear the learning curve. We just recently also purchased Archicad, and the learning curve about did us in, mainly because we were already very familiar with ADT and FormZ and though it would be no big deal learning Archicad, wrong. The FormZ tech support is absolutely the best there is, and I am REALLY worried if we switch to MAX what our support options are...having to wait a day or two for an answer does NOT work when we have deadlines to meet.
