Hi Manny, hello all,

Thanks for the response. I took 5 screen captures and annotated them to
better demonstrate what I meant by the term regression.

Please look at: http://tropicalearth.smugmug.com/gallery/1645319 and let me
know your thoughts...

Thanks for the time you've taken creating this page. Here are my comments:

1) The Light/Plasma preview will always be more saturated than the final render because Gamma is not applied to the preview. However colors are boosted to make it bright enough even with a low points count.

2) With Plasma, parts of the attractor in the foreground will always get darker and more opaque as the render progresses. This is how Plasma works, the larger the distance between two points on the Z axis (depth) the darker the closest point will be. Also Plasma is transparent on very short distances. The same would happen with any gradient.
