Quick renders are rare things indeed for me ;-) I do like it when I have a scene
without isosurfaces and SSLT (although you can switch that on/off in this scene
for the honey and ants) you forget how quick a render can be. The tripods render
very fast as they are just CSG. Most of my scenes tend to have isosurfaces in
them which are great but so slow.

I did a higher resolution render with just the tripods in and a different HDR
probe just now.

I am not aware of one, not surprising if you look at my code as you will realise
I rely heavily on trial and error ;-)
