Once the Iray render engine is selected for the view port, gaining control over the speed of rendering, as well as well as quality of image is going to be key. We can do this via the min and max sample options, as well as by controlling the maximum amount of time allotted to the render, in values of seconds. Getting a balance between the two is our goal.
- [Voiceover] Now that we have the Iray render engine…active in our 3D view, we are,…more likely than not, going to want to optimize it…for either speed or visual fidelity.…Thankfully, the controls for this…are simple and easy to use.…If we come to our Renderer tab…and come to the Edit option,…you will notice that that, this time,…because we are using the Iray renderer,…we actually have a number of options…that become available to us.…The first that we will take a look at here…being Min and Max Samples.…And what do these do?…Well, these controls essentially give us the ability…to set the level of quality that we will see…in our final render.…
In other words, the minimum and maximum number…of samples per pixel that can be used…to produce the final image.…If we set the max value here to 15…and then orbit around in the 3D view,…then we see the view port update…as Iray tries to make use of the max number…of samples that we've made available to it.…However, we have a second-level quality control…that we need to take into consideration here.…
