OK Billy Boy... I did it... well it went to level1 only but I could have let it run to 20 if I had the time, but it was to demonstrate big size... no ? he he

I made a copy of screen but then the heat forced me to restart, so I've lost the screen...

but, here is the Temporal file... no wonder the disk was going nuts... BTW, I would suggest to have a disk jsut for that.... because working on my C disk is really not ideal... after that treatement , photoshop failed to initialize, and like I've said above, I had to restart...



and here is the link for the image... if U dare... (16 mb- jpg low2)... I had to put it on my sever... so only watch it if you really need... he he..

BTW, I have a Boxx AMD dual 1900 (I know...) and 2 GB ram...

here is the link... ( I pushed auto contrast in Photoshop, otherwise, it is still very dark at level 1)

yes I think it counts as long as it started to show an image... it did not crashed... I stopped it !! hehe...

Victor... does it count...? I mean I could let it render over night, but not with my current disk... I would need to do a few back ups first... hehe

In theory it is valid, but I think people will not understand if we send a 10000 x 10000 image full of random points because we cut in the first iteration. So we kindly ask everybody to provide better quality and taste the Maxwell essence of the images.

Hello Victor, is there a simple way to tell Maxwell to use another partition or disk...?

I feel like OJ Simpson... in theory It counts, but in practice, it does not... :cry: he he

Boards are not modeled, just a texture... a large texture
