After working on the snowman from the holiday scene I decided to do another snow
scene with icicles this time. Of course, I had to find out how to most
realistically model the shape of an icicle, and found several papers that ended
up providing a pretty good approximate formula.
The image below uses the same texture and isosurface noise functions to model
the snow as I had used for the previous snowman, but with SSLT turned off. I
attempted to render it with SSLT, and after 9 days it was only 14% complete,
(about half of the roof). I imagine once it hit the icicles it would stall
completely. I didn't see enough difference in the part that had completed, so I
I am wondering if it would be possible to just turn on SSLT for the snow at the
edge of the roof closest to the camera?
