I hadn't thought of this one.
Thanks, I will maybe give a try one day.

Anyway, all the van's final renders have been done in C4D demo version ...
Which allows different rendering buffers for objects ...
But I had no time (and patience) to investigate further more the other day.

For AA, C4D really beats PovRay.
And that's a major point for me.
