I would have to agree. I am unimpressed with the overall performance of Renderworks. While one may be able to get somewhat more photo-realistic renderings, the time involved for us is not worth it. I was able to get multiple images in just minutes, with incredible real time control over lighting, textures and views. In Renderworks, you burn so much time chasing down all the dialog boxes and parameters to get it (what you think is) just right, only to have it turn out less then what you'd hoped for in the final rendering after a huge amount of time, hours and hours. I'm sure it is powerful, but the interface is not intuitive at all and not well explained. It has taken me the better part of a day (while waiting for renderings) to find out in other peoples blogs or tutorials, setting that should in my opinion be tied to the action one is attempting, not buried inside of other functions. Indirect lighting being a prime example. I am so frustrated at the lack of functionality.
