This is really not the thread for this, I do apologize...

Considering the effort involved for some distros just getting Win32 to work on X86_64 builds...

Seriously, Win64 support in Wine is pre-pre-pre-alpha at this stage, it's as basic as register incompatibilities (eg. it might require a patched version of gcc to even build it). There are serious brains interested in this, but as of last year, this is not a priority for wine-devs nor transgaming nor codeweavers. All you're doing is wasting your time that could be better spent rendering. :-) (unless you want to be a wine coder, then by all means...)

BTW, for those that self-compile wine, wine-0.9.45 came out yesterday, but again, I wouldn't hold my breath for any Win64. (binary packages for various distros should be out in a week or so.)

@zsouthboy: Yea, it only bothers me in that confused "WTF?" way - it's faster and doesn't crash, the text thing is not that important in the scheme of things. S'all good.

HI Nick! Sorry, I lost that szene. But it seems to me the effect is stronger when meshlight and background light are used to illuminate the scene (?).

Thanks Nick! Maybe soon I can find the time to rework my big scene and see how it renders on my slow computer. :)

really impressed with how SSS renders now, especially milk.

Before it would be patchy and get smudgey layers build up layer upon layer, but now it's a more uniform developement and you get a good idea of what it will look like very early on, unless your using some insanely high scattering valves over 1000 :)

great work Ono!

Indeed. I mean, wowah! It's really nice that what you see at 100 samps/pixel is a noisy yet great approximation of what you'll get if you let it render out to 10k samps... that's bloody brilliant. (saying nothing of the speed increase :-) )

Ono - hmmm check this out

some strange stuff going on here...
Test 6 version rendered at this size, 2x Supersampling for over 20 hours,
Test 7 version at 800x600, 3x SS, for over 12 hours now

I like the fact all the details of the spheres arrived very quickly and all around the same time, compared to test 6. Test 6 had them arriving at all different times in patchy increments.

now the bad thing is area 1 has nothing and so area 2 is not reflecting that. Area 3 I'm not too worried about as it will get brighter later on like it did test 6. But I am not confident all those reflections and caustics will show up in area 1, there is zero hint of anything there! :shock:

Even in test 6 within the first few minutes, there was some small patchy relfection and caustics there already....

Hi Ono! Are you still interested in a bidir-scene that gets black after some time? I have another one :cry:
