First official Nvidia Iray render with DS4.8.  

The Forest King knows you're watching!  @_@

Scene info:
This render uses purchased content.  Too many vendors to list, but it's all available at the DAZ marketplace.  The ground is a triple layer of planar primitives with various shaders and shader/mixer recipes applied as well as liberal use of DForms.  There are 14 adult trees (8 ash, 6 japanese pines), 22 small trees, uncountable weeds and cattails, over 50 flaming katy's, over 200 'bushes', plus the various rocks that make up the background.  Took about 2 days of on and off work to put together.  Totalling about 8-10 hours of setup.

Technical junk:
27,467,177 Verts (14,583688 Faces)
RAM to load 4.2GB
RAM to render 14.1GB
Time to render w/DOF: 3.35 hours
time to render no DOF: 62 minutes

Rig:
This is basically still the same rig I've used since 2011.  It's an i7-3960X based system overclocked to 4.2GHz, liquid cooled with 64GB RAM.  Main difference is I've upgraded my GeForce GTX 590 to a GeForce GTX 980-TI.

It's good to be "back"-ish. ;). Real life has been great for me but very busy.  Have a new bundle of joy to take care of among other things. :)
