Fake commercial

A funny thread on the Italian Blender site brought me to quickly create this image to retort :lol:

Nice work, I liked how you did the coloured caustics.
btw are u using blender 2.49? I can’t seem to get yafaray to work since this release.

Coloured caustics can be obtained using a glass material with dispersion (here I used Dispersion=0.05). Of course a lighting method that supports caustics is required (i.e. Direct Lighting + Use caustics, or Photon Mapping…)

btw are u using blender 2.49? I can’t seem to get yafaray to work since this release.
I’m using Yafaray 0.1.1RC2 on Blender 2.49, since 2.49a for Windows is built with Python 2.6 while Yafaray uses Python 2.5.

Nice, the diamond is perfect!

But the light casted back is to low sampled (inside the ring, to the left), it really ruins the picture :frowning:

It’s true. That’s why I’m experimenting DL+Caustics+AO.
Thanks.

EDIT: This is what I mean.
