Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video The Denoiser, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- [Narrator] One of the coolest time-saving features…added to V-Ray in the 3+ family of updates…has been the Denoiser Render Element.…And to help show how this particular feature works,…we have set up our scene here so that…we're actually getting more speed from it…then we are final render quality.…The reason for that, if I just scroll the timeline here,…is that we actually have a 100-frame camera animation,…that, whilst admittedly containing…some pretty rough camera motion, still needs rendering out…to the client's required resolution of 1920 by 1080.…
The problem I have is that, to render the sequence out…at anything like a production-quality finish,…as seen in our test image saved to the history list,…we're looking on this old I7-4820K CPU running at…3.7 gigahertz, at a rough per-frame render time…of just over an hour each -- which, of course,…when we have a hundred frames to do,…adds up to a significant cost in terms of the time…that it is going to take.…If I take a render of the scene…using the current quality settings, though --…
