Join Donovan Keith for an in-depth discussion in this video Optimizing physical sampling settings, part of Production Rendering Techniques in CINEMA 4D.
While the Physical Renderer is extremely powerful, getting an image without grain might seem…to take longer than a human lifespan.…So, let's take a few minutes to optimize our Render Settings so that we can get a good…looking image in a minimum of time. What I have are two images right here.…One is rendered with the Adaptive Low setting, and it's taking about 20 seconds per frame.…The other is rendered with the Adaptive High setting, and it's taking about 5 minutes and 5 seconds per frame.…Now, I would say that the visually superior is clearly the Adaptive High setting.…
But at 5 minutes and 5 seconds a frame, it's definitely going to make me think twice before I use that setting.…Let's take a look at how the Physical Sampler works and then go into how to optimize these settings.…I currently have my Interactive Render Region turned on, so I'm just going to turn that off.…Now let's go into our Render Settings and take a look at the Sampler.…By default, it's on Adaptive, and I think that's a good setting, and it is the one that…
