no man, thats' your GI going crazy...
unless you got caustics turnded on, it's not it

final render can show you the gi samples in green dots. check it.

If it's a caustic, it would have to be caused by those mirrored walls. Make them non-reflective and see what happens?

hm, now it's soft

What did you change?

The softer version does look like a GI glitch. What does it look like with samples on?

heh, I've changed so many parameters, I don't know what I changed to make it soft :shrug:

The problem was whith the min samples and max samples ... for sure!! try to use max samples - 3000, and the min samples with at least 10 % of the max samples, in the case 300... and check it in a small preview with the option show samples on .
you have small dots on the swadow area.... if not try to change only those parameters... remember!!! try these until you're final version whith a small value in rh- Rays (16)... unless you have time and patience !!! :beer: :beer: :beer:
