Not only is Clarisse a blazingly fast renderer but it allows an artist an incredible amount of flexibility in how they setup their scenes. It somehow manages to allow very complex setups while making it seem simple, intuitive and artist friendly. As our industry changes and the requirements of visual effects become more and more complex, this intuitive approach is invaluable. Fortunately it's also backed up with a renderer that can handle the complexity.
