Rendering Performance and Quality


A render is not finished when the “kernel”->”maxsamples” are reached. It is finished when the Viewport image quality is free of noise and all details have been rendered to a fine level. For some simple scenes, this will be after 500 samples. For some complex scenes it may take 10,000 samples.


Tips to increase render speed (by increasing sample/sec or reducing the samples required to finish the render):


Important: Remember to adjust “kernel” -> “rayepsilon” for each scene. The “rayepsilon” will be smallest for close-up renders, and increase as the camera moves further away from the subject.
