NOTES:

The images shown above are the direct output from POV-Ray (except for conversion to JPEG format), rendered at 300x200 pixels.

AA - whether scene anti-aliasing was on or off. A very high setting was used to get a smooth-looking image

Forester - time spent by Forester in processing the scene. (Note that most of this time is actually spent writing the INI file to disk, rather than actually processing it)

POV INI - size of the POV-Ray INI file generated by Forester

Parse - time spent by POV-Ray in parsing the INI file

Render - time spent by POV-Ray in rendering the scene

Blades - total number of blades of grass in the scene

Memory - peak memory usage reported by POV-Ray once render completed

Focal Blur

Here is the same scene rendered with Camera Focal Blur (again, no post-processing has been applied).
