An old trace, now with 75% more photons!

(I can send a 1600x1200 if you ask nicely)


Best,

    S.

Very nice, although tht quartz looks a little odd to me. Too clear and 
dark, maybe.

I'm trying a trace with a lot more photons
I'll see what  it will look like.

Lack of photons isn't the issue; the quartz is just too perfectly 
glassy. It's not uncommon for it to have cloudy parts or other 
imperfections; check out some photos (there are many online).

Of course, changing that might be more work than you want to put in, 
especially when I did identify it. ;p

Also, is it using the IOR of quartz? (I don't remember the number 
offhand, although I remember it being quite a bit higher than glass, and 
it probably wouldn't make a big difference.. but it probably should use 
quartz IOR, regardless.)

Can't remember the exact IOR right now,
but I think it's closer to glass anyway. Quartz
and diamond have IOR around 2.0

Quartz a little bit over 2
Diamond: 2.5

Correct, so why does consts.inc still have

#declare Diamond_Ior     = 2.47;

like it has since the days of DKBTrace? :(

Attached is an Ideal-Cut diamond with correct IOR, but the photons are not
quite realistic, although it does give a rather pretty effect, IMNSHO. :)
