The few examples on the Maxon site are pretty impressive - tapered strokes in one Japenese-quill style have no computer-rendered look to them at all. But, $350 more for that module as far as I can tell...
Check out Cinema 4D. has a new sketch rendering engine that puts ArchiCAD's sketch rendering in 8 to shame.

I am expecting 8.5 and Sketch and Toon tomorrow, so I can give updates about it then. I do alot of modeling in Cinema, mainly soft furniture. (I will have a modeling a simple lighting tutorial avaiable soon... I haven't forgot, it has just been hectic) and the weighting of Hypernurbs is invaluable. Not to mention all the interface inprovemnets such as multiple selections without having to group. edge selections. 8.5 is supposed to have inproved radiosity, better material mixing, sub-surface scattering (think of marble columns, how they "glow" at the edges). But if Cinema is going to be only a rendering package, I think 7 will be all that you need for now. That is until Cinema has the instant photoreal button added.

from ArchiCAD what file format do you suggest I save my model to so I can import it into Cinema 4D to test out?

I am sorry for this very late reply, but I have one question and one request :
- Who did you sent your question to at Abvent ?
- Would you please send me a sample file that crashes above a certain number of lamps?
