No, not for this one. The load time was pretty quick, so I didn't fool with exporting to stand alone. I've got an architectural animation to do in the next few weeks, and I'll definitely be using the Stand alone for that because of the load time.
I'm really hoping in Rhino V6 that rendering plugins won't need to reload every single frame for an animation. Sounds like there's hope because of the work Nathan has done with integrating Cycles. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
