View Full Version : Mental ray Progressive rendering artifacts

08 August 2011, 06:03 PM
I'm having problems with my render. I have uploaded a image where it shows the artifacts circled in red. Most of the render is smooth and nice, but in some areas there is a lot of noise and I dont know how to get rid of it.
I tried changing some settings although this is my first attempt using the progressive render.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There's a bug in Progressive Rendering that some tiles with minimum samples do not get updated later.

This has been fixed awhile ago but it didn't make it to Maya 2012 (Thanks Autodesk!)

Render with Unified Sampling instead. Progressive is good for feedback, but you can get good sampling for glossy surfaces and details with Unified.
