Diamonds: an animation

Heres a little animation with some falling diamonds. Modeled/animated with blender and its game engine, rendered in yafray.
and a screenshot:


havn’t been able to download the video yet, but the still looks good. How many photons did you have to shoot, and how long did each frame take?


I shot 200,000, but thats over a very large area, so the caustics aren’t great. Rendertimes were anywhere from 6 to 16 minutes a frame. The whole thing took about a day to render, I ended up running it overnight.

If anyone knows of a better file hosting site that doesn’t make you wait to download files, please let me know.
