More spheres in image 5
The actual number of spheres I made in my spheres 5 image is much less
than the number you see. This is because I used two mirrors above and
below the spheres, thus creating the illusion of much more spheres:

Bryce's AntiAliasing options
In normal rendering without antialiasing areas with sharp edges
or high frequency textures will exhibit "jaggies," or
Each pixel will have eight neighbors raytraced and taken into
account as its color is being determined. So really a 640x480
image is internally computed at 1920x1440... It's the same as
linearly raytracing a 1920x1440 image and then with cubic
oversampling reducing that down to a clean 640x480. This is
quite time-consuming, but gives a good image quality.
Uses a randomly jittered, 16x16, global antialiasing algorithm
for the finest possible raytraced image. This mode can be four
to sixteen times slower than the normal mode, but the result is
