Help me to decide on Thea

I need some specific to know about Thea, as I am planning to get it.

1. In regard of materials, does Thea provide anything extra other than a lot more preset materials? I mean is there anything which is UNACHIEVABLE by kerkythea material editor?

2. In regard of features, apart from distance mapping, and GUI engine, (I noted these 2 initially), what are the extra features in Thea?

3. Is there any extra feature/ advantage for Lighting, in Thea?

Thanks very much Fletch.. From your comments, it seems to be a kind of 'complete' rendering system.

However, hoping for a next release of Kerkythea as well (and of course free) which includes at least some advanced features..

Forget to say, that although Thea can render KT scenes, it's done via one-way conversion...

I have gone through their website and mainly the technical features. And I must say this look to be an ultimate product. I mean wow, some of those features are absolutely amazing.
However the application + plugin costs nearly 370 Euro.. That's the only tricky part.. :(

By the way, I have posted a little trick to introduce ambient occlusion (or at least very similar effect) in post production over kerkythea renders. The post is in tutorials section.
You can have a look.

If you outside EU, you don't need to pay taxes. If you are a SU user there is a Thea for SU bundle available (includes the full standalone studio and SketchUp plugin plus two bonus node licenses) http://www.thearender.com/cms/index.php ... tchup.html also there is Thea for 3dsMax bundle http://thearender.com/cms/index.php/plu ... dsmax.html both cost 320€ (without tax).
There is also affordable student license http://www.thearender.com/cms/index.php ... egory_id=3

The academic license holds the full features as the general one?
