Radiosity with POVTrees

POV-Ray 3.6, 2005

This is a minor but useful tip: when using POVTree trees (and trees in general) with radiosity scenes, it could be worth to use a two pass rendering. This way you can leave out the foliage on the saving pass, turning it on for the second pass. The shadows and foliage lighting dont seem to be greatly affected, but the saving in parsing and rendering time is very noticeable.
