View Full Version : Noisy Shadows

03-15-2011, 09:38 AM

I try to render this (http://www.iamelide.de/pictures/screenshot.jpg) since hours and all I get is this noisy shadow. If I increase the light radius, the whole render is noisy - not only the shadow.

Her (http://www.iamelide.de/pictures/screenshot_2.jpg) you can see my render quality settings.

Hope someone has an idea what's wrong. ;)

You're using it as an area light, check that option off and you'll most likely get sharp raytraced shadows. Otherwise, increase the number of Shadow Rays on your light.

yup, needs more samples

Thanks! I already solved the problem. It was a combination of both:

more light rays + increasing high and low samples. ;)
