  1. No, this was done with cycles, the path-tracing renderer that comes with blender. I just did a quick test with eevee (the new renderer), and this is the result with just one very small tweak tuning one parameter. Eevee takes 5 seconds to render this in 4k, compared to 20+ minutes or so that cycles took. The shadows under the spectrum are a little bit worse, and the lighting is very slightly different, but it's a pretty good result I think.
  2. Thanks! It's blender2.8. It's a really great tool.
  3. @Flub 4k is apparently 2 different things. This one is 4096x2160 -- hope that's what you wanted
  4. Uh, the render is taking longer than I thought, and I have somewhere to be. I'll upload it later!
  5. It only comes in 16k and 48k. (Seriously though, no problem -- I'll upload it once it's finished rendering)
  6. One more: all the colours of the spectrum. Haha
  7. Hope this isn't a bit too show-offy, but I made a Spectrum model, and made some renders. Hope some of you get a kick out of these -- I enjoyed making them very much!

    I made a self-portrait with procedurally generated jigsaw pieces, simulated dropping on table. Rendered in blender.
  9. I'm learning blender, and I made this night-time render of Antchester from Sandy White's excellent 1983 game Ant Attack. I'm very happy with how it came out, and thought I'd share it here.
  10. You can still gamble sensibly even when the amounts are large. For example, if the banker offered £100, you'd probably want to reject the offer. If the banker offered £124,999 then that's so close to the expected value of the gamble it's surely right for most people to just take it. If the banker offers £50,000 should you take it? How about £20,000? At some point you're getting lowballed by just too much and you have to take a stand and gamble. It's interesting (to me at least) to figure out exactly when you should accept the offer in a principled manner rather than just go by feel. A good model is to for you to take the choice that maximizes the expectation of the log of your net worth. So if you have £X in the bank you want to accept an offer of £Y if log(X + Y) > 0.5(log(X + 0.01) + log(X + 250000)). Using logs captures the idea that, for example, if you have no money than £1M is worth a lot to you, but if you've already got a net worth of £10B, then another million isn't worth that much. Using that model, and in the case where Y=£88,000, you need to already have approximately £110,000 to rationally reject the offer and take the gamble. That's a significant amount of money, but it's not unreasonable to believe that this woman had that much and so made a rational and good choice.
