Actually I saw something wrong I had to start all over again and I need to sleep because I'll do something important tomorrow, sorry guys, just will send tomorrow (by the morning), so if you could wait.

That's all I could do for today, 320x240 1h to render 70%

So it will take a lot of time tomorrow, I'll post only on the afternoon!

I have no problem waiting for this if others agree.

No problem. I'll start the poll when Leon's new picture is ready or tonight (my time) if it isn't ready yet. I have work of unknown duration later today so it might be evening before I check.

Leon, you said 4X anti-aliasing? It would be faster, of course, with less and might look good. A trick is to render larger with 1X and then shrink the image in Paint Shop or Photo Shop or otherwise post process it for smoothing.

I always use Adaptive anti-aliasing... does it really make that much difference to go to 4x or bigger?

I find that high levels of AA blur the textures so the "grain" is missing. Sometimes 2X is better than adaptive but I seldom need 3X or more. The Feature Following AA (on the workspace icons where depth of field is) might be interesting but the times I played with it made really long render times.

The end draws near. I'll start the poll before bed tonight (about 4 hours) or sooner if Leon's new picture appears. If no new picture is available then I'll use his current one and replace it with the new when available if he wants that. Vote changing will be allowed.
