Captain's Log?
'Tis the season to be jolly!
I was playing around with some geospheres I downloaded, trying to see how they become useful for lighting, but I did not get anywhere. To sooth my addled brian I thought I would see how my system handled a ball of 4320 trees and it was not too bad. I could even move the ball in the perspective window, oh but it did st, (1 second), st, (1 second), stutter a bit but it rendered quicker than I thought. It seems Imagine’s weak point, render wise, is refraction and reflection, but we all know that.
That tree-ball is 19.1mb in size, the biggest model I ever rendered!

 Re: Captain's Log?
Nice and funny

To anyone who understands the math and algorithms involved in scan lining vs ray tracing it will be pretty obvious why any reflective and refractive surface greatly will add to the render time...

of course, the number of lights, especially shadow casting ones, will increase it too

I haven't seen any real measurements on this, but it could be fun to test :D

Another weekend project perhaps?
