    Lump of ice

    Been trying to make some ice with sss, here is the result and the scene if anyone wants to play around with it. Render time wasn't too bad.

    Setting it up was a lot of trial and error, e.g. just couldn't figure out why changing the sampling on the omega changed the appearance so much, I thought it would just get rid of the noise but it made it darker. I found if I raise the sampling from 1x3 to 2x6 I had to change the recursions from 5 to 9 to get the same result. No idea why!

    Awesome job! I've been looking for a good, realistic ice mat for a project I'm working on. Don't mind if I swipe it, do you?
