I am new to join this forum. My new company need to do some rendering, which based on Pro-E files. My boss ask me to do the research for MAC's 3D appliaction, I like to know Alias is OK for this purpose??
I am usung iMac, thanks for you pay attention
If you need to do renderings I would not usa Alias just for that.
First Alias cannot export OBJ files with UV coordinates which are must for correct texture mapping.
Rather I would go and use Blender with their new interactive render engine called Cycles which is on the same professional level like Keyshot. Blender how ever is open source and free.
I have multiple commercial render engines but caught myself in the recent time just simply using Blender. It is more flexible and also as dramatically good animation tools. Good for product renderings.
feel free to try it - it is free, so no lost investment.
the user forum can be found at www.blenderartists.com and in youtube or cgcookie there are many tutorials to watch.
maybe this might be useful.
if you want to check out my in progress coroflot portoflio. you can see some product renderings there done with it.
it might give you a good idea about the quality you can achive.
