Well thanks to DRGfx I was able to get my ice flow working. This was a quickie I did because it was late in the day and I wanted to give it a shot to see how it turned out. Overall it turned out Ok for the very little time I put into it so far. I could have softened up the edges a bit and adjusted the scale a bit but it's going somewhere.
The Ice textures I used for the side of the flows and the side of the "Glacier" that I got from The Willow Grove ( http://www.the-willow-grove.com/vue/vue ... mats1.html
) are EXTREMLEY slow to render wich is why I only rendered this small picture with the "Final" render preset. It took 40 minutes, at any decent size and up the render quality we are looking at a 10-17 hour render time. Because of this it has made it extremely hard for me to do any tweaking to textures, atmosphere, etc because each preview takes about 10 minutes.
Here it is
I do like Karens ice/snow materials but they just render to slow for any large use. Tomorrow I am going to try and find a new ice/snow material that will look good both on the side and on top of my ice that renders at a decent speed. Are there any ice textures for sale here at geekatplay?
