New renderer Thea Render nearing public beta!

The much anticipated renderer Thea Render will be going public soon and we will certainly be the first to let you know about it. As explained on their website - "Thea Render is a new physically-based renderer with the unique ability of producing both biased and unbiased photorealistic renders, using state-of-the-art and in-house developed techniques. It comes with a rich set of standard and innovative features, a powerful material layer system never seen before in another renderer, and its own advanced standalone studio"
Some of the images coming out of the forum by their beta testers are quite astounding.
Here's an image of a Thea render by Pete Stoppel and the SketchUp model is by Eric Lay of a crazy aircraft modeled for fun.
Developer Ioannis Pantazopoulos says they had to move their opening date from the 15th Dec as they are working on the website and still tweaking things at the moment but are confident that the new engine will go public very soon.
He stated " After years' of development, we are really close now to going public.  The delay will be only a short one".
The great news is that it will be possible to purchase Thea Render in a promotional price (50% discount), during both open beta phase and official release during the first month. So stay posted for the release date!
