Micro Triangle Displacement
finalRender R2 for Maya offers advanced 3D displacement
Micro Triangle Displacement is an advanced rendering method that gives you the ability to create more surface detail in your models by generating and displacing extra triangles. Even better, is that these extra triangles are created only at render time, which means, that even 100 million Micro-Triangles will not utilize all of your system's memory. finalRender's Micro-Triangles exist solely for a short time and will be created only as they are needed to render each bucket.
finalRender's Micro Triangle Displacement helps you create even more realistic surfaces than before. As you would expect, MTD is also supported by Global Illumination and other raytracing effects. The images shown here illustrate various MTD options along with finalRender's GI.
