Cars in a pool. For no reason other than I had the pool caustics model set up and a load of new sketchup car models to play with and nothing useful to do with them. SPLOSH!

Very nice! I've seen in your other thread that you did the caustics with displacement. Is it just for the distortion or does it give a better/different effect?

You inspired me to try rendering some pool too one day : D

It's best to displace the water surface if you want the most realistic caustics.

In wich case you are safer with view-dependent subdivisions switched OFF. Best is high density plane with no more than 2-3 subdivs levels.

nice wood you have there cotty :)
I would suggest you use the map also in Fresnel scale, bump and exponent map, since it looks way to polished like that.
Maye a coated material could shine here too

You are right. I used it for the displacement map, but choose the value too small.

Just to add a question...
How can we sketchup users add a map as a fresnel map, inside SkIndigo?

A little bit of an overkill on rendering time - 66 hours (let it run over the weekend). Ended up with 8800ssp. Original resolution is 18mp.
