Are you outputting this from your tiny wee gigabyte brix machine? If so, thats pretty amazing. What an age we live in

Sadly, no.
My Gigabyte BRIX has 'only' 8GB RAM, which (by a small margin) is not enough for rendering this scene with advanced control and caustics quality @ 70.
I should have gone with 16GB. Aargh... :-\

can you not upgrade it? or are the rams soldered in. Im so glad i got the maximum 16gb in my mbp - only recently found out that you can't upgrade!!

The RAM isn't soldered. I put the 8GB in myself. It's enough for 95% of my jobs, though.
It's only advanced control rendering with caustics at high quality (HUGE photon map!) where 8GB doesn't suffice.
However, RAM consumption with realtime caustics is much lower.

RAM is too expensive these days. :)

Thanks, Marco!

Just finished rendering 3600 frames. Tomorrow I'm going to stitch it all together.

Here's the extended version.
I wanted to create an ethereal, minimalistic feel.

I think the pace is much better in this one...

Wow.  This should be on the main KS website gallery.

Worthy of SIGGRAPH submission.

I'm not the brightest bulb,  ::) where is the light source in this?
