I was immediately hooked to Arnold right from the first try. I setup this scene from downloaded models and began lighting. Arnold is super simplified. You don't have to waste time adjusting countless sliders under countless nodes. Few handful of controls and incredibly easy render settings makes it fun to work with Arnold.

RenderMan is Awesome!!
This is the first time I have tried Pixar's RenderMan RIS. This is simply the best render engine I have ever used till now. No loads of complex shaders, confusing nodes or crazy lights. RenderMan gives the best and the simplest tools which are surprisingly responsive. The quality of output is unmatched. I am going to dig deeper.
