Computer Model and Performance

I agree that probably the future for rendering is in the cloud and I already hate it.
When I tried to figure out Octane's new subscription model (most ridiculous scheme ever) I had to split myself into a laughing and a crying part and am not entirely sure about fully recovering because exactly this ridiculousness seems to be the direction everyone is heading to...
I agree. I just went over to the Octane website. What a complicated load of nonsense. And to top it off, they are actually introducing an option for a dongle - can you believe it ? In 2019 ? A dongle ? Maybe they should also issue the software on floppies.

The original owners did a much better job on that software than Otoy.

I just installed my aftermarket RAM kit today. I had 8gb from the factory. The extra RAM made quite a difference. I want to say it was somewhere around 18 seconds with only 8gb RAM.

This thing put the smack down on my wallet, but it was worth it.

Wow. Very envious. That's a fantastic time. I would love one of those new Mac Pros, but they are way out of my price range.

Congrats.
