Yeah, the 4:1 ratio come from my recollection of conversation with Matt. Hopefully we'll have options on this in the future. ;D

Here's the det 3.4 render. Compared with the previous version not that much better, but you can especially see more small scale detail in some rocks. However, it's also quite dependant on how the refraction is at that specific part.

Yes, I would say the absolute detail equivalency matters a lot more when refraction is not involved as that can hide the effects of lower detail settings.

After the introduction of the ray detail multiplier rendering an animation of this became much more feasible :)

You can find it here, in 720p ;D

I started a topic about this animation in the Animation forums, here:

Please leave your crits/comments there, thanks! :)

This is cool. It's something I want to do more of. I've only recently tended towards using water and I want to work more on shorelines with rocks like this.

Highly effective as a still! A beauty.
