A quick test with the latest Alpha version and transparency. Fake stones are a mix of procedural and image maps.

Render time with a q6600 (3GHz) and 4Gb of ram was 1.5hours.
Quality 1, AA 5, GI 3,3

Just to give you an idea the new alpha version with multithreading renders Karsten's Benchmark in 50sec. With version 1.9.03.1 it used to take 3 min.

Nice water, and great rocks ;).  Good to see you finally managed to get one off :).

Watching this image, a question comes to my mind: Does water interact with stones or other objects? I mean, does objects produce some distortions or ripples or the like?

So do I ;D

Oshyan might be able to elaborate on that issue.

spotted this over at the alpha base...looks fab'!...rendertimes are definately improved...did a population test last night, it came in considerably quicker than I had estimated!
:D

That's nice, but when are we going to benefit?
Beautiful stones !

Nice! Thanks for sharing that,

@ RealUser: I'm sure someone will tell us ;)

Also: Arent the current Beta/Alpha testers restricted about what they can post by an NDA?

@Oshyan or @Matt - Will other things like terrain and fake stones be able to have this same transparency?

This is something I've been curious about too.  "Transparent materials" were mentioned, so I am hoping to see some crystal formations and such with this...and/or maybe some ice formations.
