I just wanted to introduce myself and let you all know about my 3d benchmarks project which has just recently begun at http://www.3dspeedmachine.com
The site is open to all major 3d software applications and render plugins. I have a handfull of 3ds max scenes online and ready for benchmarking for those who want to participate. Once there are a significant amount of registered users, the database should be a valuable resource.
Just wanted to note that I'm still trying to track down scene files for the following render plugins:
Max + Mental Ray
Max + Maxwell
Max + Brazil
Max + FinalRender
Max + Fry Render
If anyone can help I'd appreciate it.
Thanks for looking,
