Thanks for the detail and code. I'll come back to it, but I have other
active threads too - under which I'm already buried! Your results are
mostly in line with my tentative understanding and yep, the media run
times are certainly a factor for me too on my little two core i3.
In trying to verify the media attenuation apart from the scattering I
set up a simpler scene with with two renders - light in at top, light
out at bottom. The attached image shows the difference at bottom. As I'd
expect the media_attenuation is getting applied only in the band where
the media is lit in the second and not to the background. In other words
attenuation looks to me to be working - when it's on - at least to a
