Wink Displacment Nightmares over!!! (WARNING slight NUDETY)

Hi all, iv been throw h**?@^$ and back a few times trying to get displacments maps to work. first let me say This is no fault of Gnomon DVDs they did help me alot. without them id have never even gotten a disp map out of mudbox.
My problems were mental ray , crash crash crash ect....
now i have gotten a few renders out of mental ray but its is so slow AND
i can only use draft quality and without raytracenig (scanline only).
if i put one light othere then default light mental ray crashes.
also i can only render 1 frame and bingo it crashes.
So afew days ago i downloaded the new renderman for maya DEMO (not some viruse hack bomb).
and WOW my displacemt map rendered perfectly and so fast no crash.
anyways I also found this nice render called 3Delight and it render alittle bit faster the renderman !! not by much but still.
3Delight it totaly free for 1 license .
Its is used on hightend movies, ones you have seen.
ok get this same map same model mental ray 5 min (draft qaulity) crash,
3delight 25 sec (full quatily hight semples ) no crash
renderman for maya 28 sec hight qulity (but cost $995)

hope u like the renders . all were renderd in under 30 sec (32 bit fp tiffs disp)
without 1 crash !!!!! using 3Delight
im still working on this model just test rendering it.

see nude girl render tests below
