"the robust adaptive sampler"  I can't find this but I'm versions behind...is this a new feature?

It's quite new, but it should be under "Render/Edit sampling" of actual versions.

The result from Robust Adaptive is more correct. The legacy sampler undersamples some dark parts and makes them even darker.

Please try it again with the latest build in the Alpha Test area. I've made some improvements to the Robust Adaptive Sampler which should make it faster, and it also uses data gathered by the robust adaptive sampler to optimise the path tracer.

Robust adaptive sampling was new in 4.3. It's still designated a beta feature. It wasn't always a clear win in 4.3, but it works much better in 4.4.

as I noted I'm a bit behind in maintenance versions...slow period for fixed income pensioners...

Great work - I don't have the patience to sort out all those textures! I have maintenance (I think) but only 4.3 is 4.4 not out yet?

I would never have guessed this was rendered in Terragen. I love it!

Thanks a lot, Terje! I love to try out unusual stuff in TG. And with the path tracer materials are getting more and more realistic!
