    In preparation for Ken Gilliland's Open Rendering Season contest this year, The HW Community Volunteers are going to run a Render Challenge with the hopes of 1) seeing some great renders, and 2) giving folks help in creating entries for Ken's wonderful annual contest this year.

    So with that in mind, which of the items listed above would you most like help with. The winner will be our Render Challenge Theme. This poll will be open from today, 4/10/19 through Monday, 4/15/19, with the actual Render Challenge starting on Wednesday, 4/17/19.

    I intellectually "know" all of the things above to one degree or another, but then getting what is in my head to actually come out in the scene, and then seeing where the weak points are, I have the hardest time with. I think I have it perfect, and then I come back and look at it a few weeks later, and see all kinds of issues. Or, sometimes I don't see issues until someone points them out. I try to follow all the rules, but something isn't clicking. So, long story not so short, I think this would be a great challenge.

    OK, folks, this Poll is closed, and I'm going to start a new one for a couple of days because we have a tie for first place, so I'll be asking folks to vote again so we can choose our theme for the Render Challenge.
