huge selection of great prizes, we encourage everyone to come join

with more than 237 million hits per month, Renderosity is
definitely the place to be seen.

In addition to the "Animation Outlet", Renderosity also announced
it's new hosting services last week, geared towards an animator's
needs. Many animators find they run out of bandwidth during the
last half of the month with their current services. With our new
services, we put the user in charge. They decide how much they want
to spend and keep track of their activity through an easy
management tool set.
"We are really excited to open an animation gallery and to be able
to provide this kind of valuable service to our entire community,"
said Tim Choate, Bondware President, "This will give members
another artistic frontier to explore and expand as they continue to
push the envelop of digital art."
