Magnum Opus Ex Lite 1731 Zooms by Kosmic-Stardust Magnum Opus Ex Lite 1731 Zooms by Kosmic-Stardust
After having painstakingly gone through over a month of continuous rendering, including a massive CPU upgrade, I successfully rendered my "Magnum Opus Ex", featuring a massive X formation which was created entirely of smaller "X-out-of-X" formations: stardust4ever.deviantart.com/a… The original render had a zoom level of 2^-3132.6, with about 377,000 iterations per pixel, on a huge grid of 3200x3200 pixels, a massive undertaking to say the least. Still not having satiated my need to zoom further, I decided it would be possible to replicate the formation at a lower zoom level.

Enter "Magnum Opus Ex Lite" which is essentially the same formation, albeit at a much shorter zoom depth of 2^-1731, with an average of only 107,000 iterations per pixel. Rendered at the exact same resolution, 3200x3200, the entire image took only two days to render on my 8-core AMD-FX Bulldozer (O.C. @ 4.2Ghz). Notably, there are some minor differences, most notably the arms on the X-chromosome formations are much shorter in length. I may explore future formations based off of this new zoom path.
