Hi Jed,

I'm wondering if there is a specific reason for Mental Ray other than  
the obvious experience. I don't want to sound like a sales pitch but  
we as a small studio have been MR users for the longest time now ever  
since we got into Mantra - specially for HD work, and even more once  
you get into licensing..
