View Full Version : Help with smooth light

Look at and tell me how to get rid
of the pointy light areas.

Lit with a HDR map, 1000 rays, 0,05 min radius, 0,65 max radius.

Im going crazy....

There are several ways (which I would try in the shown order):
- Increase the finalgather filter - a value of 2 is usually enough
- Blur the hdri in hdrshop
- Increase the finalgather accuracy up to 3000 or even 4000
