Join Dariush Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Sampling settings, part of Learning V-Ray for Maya: A Professional Reference Guide.
In this video, we'll be taking a look at some of the image sampling options that…VRay has to offer. Now, in the Render Settings window under…the Vray tab, you will find the Image Sampler rollout.…Here, you can set the type of image sampling that you want.…Typically I prefer you use the adaptive DMC which allows you to set your minimum…and your maximum subdivisions set against your color threshold.…
Here we have a render of our scene with a min 1 and a max 8 subdivision.…And you can plainly see there's some noise in these areas, especially in the…reflections in the beach ball. One of the primary areas to mitigate that…kind of noise, is within the sampler. If I increase the max subdivisions to,…let's say 32, that will give me 4 times the number sampling within the entire frame.…
I could also lower the contrast threshold to force the renderer to using more…subdivisions, where there's a lower contrast threshold between pixels.…Lowering this value first will get you better results then just blindly…increasing this value. And in this case we're going to do a…
