PROBLEM: As far as file-texture jitter/crawling goes, its actually slightly worse than just regular quadratic filtering (or is that pyrymad in MR?). Is there a setting in the elliptic filter that will actually help get rid of texture jitter (without just blurring it which will basically ruin the object's composition with the rest of the shot). Increasing global samples doesn't really help this much.
By far the best results for file textures I can get only with Maya Software renderer, and its much faster. However the moire patterns with the Software renderer are very bad. Obviously I would rather use MR, but can't find a setting to get rid of texture crawl.
Any ideas would be welcome :)
EDIT: Oh I forgot to add, there are no radiosity effects in the tests ;) And one more question, is the per-object MR sampling working in Maya 7 now? this feature is broken in 6.5 :rolleyes:
