once again i was playing around with matrix extrude abstracs, so i came up with a shape i liked a bit, put an ice-like material on it, added a sphere and a floor object with simple glossy materials, switched OFF any kind of GI/AO/Caustics, 1024x768.
after 15 hours of rendering, maybe 1/10 of the picture is rendered, if not less.
im running the render on a P4 2,5ghz with 1gb ram, thats not the best of course, though i thought it would be a *bit* faster !
right now i dont know what i couldve done wrong, since there is absolutely nothing impressive in the picture.
i attached the project file, if anyone wants to have a look at it.
thanks in advance
