I liked it a lot Rombout, I've only seen it now but I'm downloading your scene at the moment.

I think it's a great effort!
And I think it looks excellent!
Thanks for your out-of-the-box thinking Rombout! :thumbup:

Here's the altered scene as well.

EDIT
added a ship and voila, nice space scene. The great model comes from projectlondonmovie.com
I downloaded your scene and I noticed a procedural texture (Perlin Noise) was used to define medium properties. That should have no effect for Presto renderings?

I set it to AMC because of this, not sure now if it works properly in MCp.

I did a quick double check and the perlin noise does work as displacement with MCp. The medium effect does seem to have some issues. Perhaps MCp needs a higher Tracing Depth for this

Thank you! It is good to know Presto does not completely reject Procedural Textures.
