TransQ, OK I'll keep that in mind. Killer stuff here man, awesome work. I'm just not crazy about shapes, it's why I quit using Incendia early in it's evolution. Guess I need to wake up and smell the coffee though because the reflects/transparency sure works on them better than most anything else.
Thanks Len! Yep, dIFS shapes are definitely the best for reflects and trans'. Escapetime stuff is generally too complex for trans' to work effectively - too many intemediate 'surfaces' and detail or somesuch I guess? Like the latest dIFS shapes you've thrown btw!
Thanks Patty! There are so many variables involved with reflects - and never mind transparency! - you really just have to keep doing small test renders and tweaking til it looks right I'm afraid m'dear! This took absolutely ages of twiddling to get to this stage.
