Hello / Hi
The scene stalls at 2/3 percent because of the well isosurface (it is a cylinder
parametric function with an add of customized crackle pattern. In addition, I
deleted the heavy-weight tree mesh in the archive posted in 'binaries' forum
section. I you want the complete scene or just take a look at the final image,
you should take a look at my web site:
But I didn't update the archive you can download from there.
Since the first posts of Kenneth and William F. Pokorny , I tested the changes
they suggested (replace srgb with rgb in some cases mainly) but the renders were
not exempt of bugs, unfortunately, excepted for some renders with povray

I think I pointed out a bug, but I've no idea of where it comes from.
