So a few months ago I downloaded a 20 day trial of this handy little piece of software known as Marmoset Toolbag. Wow what can I say bad about it...hmm nothing really. It delivers real time renders and a fantastic set of lighting tools with ease. Don't get me wrong I'm a firm fan of UDK and other game engines, however on days when your just looking for some sweet renders easily. This is it!
Once your 20 day trial is up it costs $50USD and is worth every penny. I just purchased my copy this morning and I can wait to add it back into my working pipeline.
