John, This is an outstanding resource and a great contribution to the A:M Community. I know from personal experience working with Skycast. There has got to be some very good karma heading your way! :) Thanks!

Nice. I actually owned it, but I never got around to using it - tend to focus on toon renders. I guess I'll take it for a spin again
