I am currently doing some tests of making an ocean in Blender,
but before I post my test, I need opinions.
Below are two renders, both done in Yafray. The first has no global illumination,
and the 2nd has full gi at medium quality with no cache.
The full gi render took 5 minutes and 20 seconds, and the render without gi took 49 seconds, 61 milliseconds. The reason I need opinions first is because I’m going to render a 100 frame animation of the ocean and I want to know whether people prefer GI or no GI.
When that is done, I will put up the Blender internal render of the same animation
