Guest #5022647 You need to be at least somewhat familiar with programming. It is a very powerful tool in the right hands since it is a very mature programming language.
The biggest downside is absence of SMP (present in 3.7 beta though) whitch does not allow to use multicore machines in full. Because complex scenes require a lot of calculations, rendering them may take a lot of time which is a necessary price for realistic results.
