Not sure which Peter your asking (to many Peters around here, wink-wink-nudge-nudge), however, it looks like I have a couple more cents to spend.
As you may have noticed I made some comments about Lightscape to Peter Bacot so I won't repeat myself. I must admit I haven't tried Radiance Online. I've been fortunate to have a PC Linux box at my disposal until recently. Since then I haven't had the need to use Radiance, however, I have some projects coming up that are going to require it's use. I'm fortuate to have a "spare" 8100 lying around so I'm going to install MKLinux on it and "give-it-a-go". I usaully render my final images at 4000 x 4000 and up. I need that kind of resolution for some my presentations. If I flop with MKLinux I'll definitely give Radiance Online "a-go".
I think Radiance Online is a great tool and a wonderful feature that Artifice has provided. With all the advances with DW and Radiance I almost wish I was going through the U of O's Architecture program now instead of the "Dark Ages" when I went through. Ah, the possibilities.
Well I'm broke now so thanks for letting spend a change.
