Well, of course yes Marc. Actually the prototype has been manufactured, but instead of glass, perspex was used. The temperature of melted glass was too high to leave untouched the enclosed metal figures. As a result, there were optically almost the same figures, but extremely lighter than the one from metal and glass. The final "feel" when you hold them is somehow "cheap" or "fake" now :(

Wonderful George! Do you keep a little space between glass and metal in a piece?

All model parts are solids. Metal figures are solids in solid glass box (it is proposal for real chess of our design, which would be made not from real glass but from clear plastic - probably melted perspex). Solids are not touching each other, they are floating 2mm above the chess board as well. I don't know how NXT handles internally the solid-in-solid situation, but I can see some nice refractions expected and seemed in real life. My (and not only my for sure) only objection is the rendering time. I tried the same model in different renderer acquiring equal or even better result in fraction of time (in 1/6 to be exact). I think nXt needs to be speeded up somehow, speed of rendering in certain conditions and using particular combination of lights and materials is now really the only drawback it has.

Mario, what do you mean by D2 and D4?

Plant vs. rendering time

Gentlemen,I work on a residential scheme, and there are hundreds of trees to be placed.I have created a few with Plant Editor, and, regreteably, rendering time was about 40min for 1 pass (res 1920x1080 which is not hires at all..)Is there any relation between Ar Plant (ie complex, standard or wide tree, level of branches, number of leafs, etc., etc. - to find the right balance between rendering time and tree quality?Any help appreciated.Attached:1. Aerial View 2. trees I have created with leaf…See More
