wow, nice test...TG is really an awesome app. Now if we only didn't have to disable ray trace to get displace the world would be a better place eh?

Wow, what a nice render (of course looking much better with RT off). Chainmail looks stunning. We really need that render option selectable by object. Hope it arrives soon.

Indeed!
Btw, I used this tutorial to create the chainmail displacement:
http://www.3dtotal.com/index_tutorial_detailed.php?id=223&search=chainmail#.U3ZG9Sjxe1w  (Link fixed)
Chainmail is really fascinating. It took almost four months to create my own (real) chainmail coif and the shirt. 17000 rings, almost 26 pounds and a lot of blisters on my hands.

OK, I fixed the link.
No, I didn't use riveted rings. Just butted ones (I guess, this is the right definition). It was the first time I ever wove a chainmail shirt, so I didn't want to be disencouraged after the first 500 rings  ;D.
Maybe the next one... :P
Yossam, I'm afraid I don't have an image of myself in chainmail yet. But as soon as possible I'll post one especially for you ;). I'm waiting for the right weather. It's been raining a lot recently whenever my wife and I were on medieval markets. I don't want the shirt to rust prematurely ;D

OK Yossam, I'm making a fool of myself. Here's an image in medieval outfit, but yet no chainmail...

Whoa, you take this seriously. Someday I'd like to attend one of those real knight tournaments (e.g. this one in Germany: http://www.ritterturniere.com/de/ritterturniere.html). Would make for great pictures, I am sure...

This is indeed great fun. We have a lot of tournaments and medieval markets in the area where I live. I took this photo last year exactly when the knight's sword hit the apple.
