We just converted from VW to ArchiCAD. The rendering in ArchiCAD is much better than VW. But this is not what I would like to see improved in ArchiCAD. I would like ArchiCAD to be a powerhorse in the CAD realm. It is my opinion that you need a min. of 3 programs to complete a rendering.
1. 3D Modeling program-ie ArchiCAD
2. High End Rendering program-ie Cinema 4D, 3D Studio, Artlanits.
3. Image editor-ie Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro.
ArchiCAD is a great 3D modeling program. The developers should concentrate on improving this program for what is does best...BIM
Let the High end rendering programs develop the great, realistic looking renderings. Plus these programs let you do things such as material manipulation much more efficiently than ArchiCAD...as well as many many other things more efficiently
Just my 2 cents
