Join Donovan Keith for an in-depth discussion in this video Optimizing sampling settings, part of Production Rendering Techniques in CINEMA 4D.
Global Illumination can make your finished images look great, assuming you're using the right settings.…If you are using the wrong settings, you can get blotches and flickering and all sorts of unsightly artifacts.…Let's take a look at a scene rendered using the default IR Camera Animation settings.…When I press Play, we notice this is a very short snippet of an animation, and I do this…so that we can see some of the major artifacts without struggling through very long render times.…It's little difficult to make out by default in the setting right here, but if you look…at the white wall along the back and especially at it's crown molding, there are these dark…regions and these are areas where the samples that were taken very significantly from their neighbors. So you get these blotches.…
If we'd used the IR Still settings, those would be flickering left and right.…So at least we don't have that problem to deal with.…Let's go into our Render settings and see if we can come up with some ways of eliminating this.…
