Please work on developing a way for Mac users to render in Poser using Apple's new Metal rendering engine. (You probably know about the feud between Apple and nVidia.) There are no "open standards," by the way, not any more. So, a rendering engine appealing to Windows users is not a way to get Mac users to buy future versions of Poser.

Metal 2, yes? What about making render engines plug-able? There is Radeon Pro Render. Imagine if Poser could export to Evee, Cycles, Pro Render, Iray, V-ray, Renderman,... whatever. That was what Reality did for LuxRender. That would also allow Poser to export to a render farm. And once exported, you can continue to use Poser while render is happening. Maybe work on another scene.
