You can then reinstall 4.2 and you license should be found automatically.100 million voxels is probably too high for a 4 Gb system. It probably isn't anything wrong with 4.3 frontier build.If you took this from one of my recent recommendations, I wrote "voxel scattering quality (in GI Settings)", which is very different.

It's not giving you much benefit in the test scenes I have seen that you've posted, and will really increase render time. In the future it should be more optimized and may be a better choice then, but for now you probably won't get a lot out of testing it. Appreciate that you are though, as no one else has yet noticed or posted tests. - Oshyan

Quote from: Oshyan on September 29, 2018, 05:13:38 pmThe glass shader issue *only* occurs with the new Path Tracer rendering system, which is still in development and *not* recommended for regular use. If you use the old, normal rendering method, the glass shader renders the same as it used to. So no need to uninstall for that.Also Terragen doesn't use the graphics card for any part of the rendering process, so testing the path tracer or other high settings is not really going to help you determine if a new graphics card is needed. I'm not sure if that was what you meant when you mentioned that though.- Oshyan
Quote from: Oshyan on September 29, 2018, 05:13:38 pmUlco, I didn't mean you, the path tracing builds are public now so a lot more people have access. I'm just surprised more people aren't testing it out, but probably most aren't aware it's there as we have (intentionally) not made a big fanfare of it yet.- Oshyan
