Gas giant vith Volumetric scatter and particle rings, and Moons! This was a pain to do, largely due to UI problems. I could have done the same thing in SketchUp in three hours. However I would have had to wait several hours for the render, and still would probably have to do the volumetrics and Rayleigh scattering in PostPro. Atmospherics rarely work the way you would expect in the renderer I use with SU. THis? each image rendered in under two minutes. NO PostPro on the final.
