Noise issue

Hey there,

How many rays do you have on your 3 lights in the raytraced shadow section?
Default is 1, this will produce a LOT of noise. Try turning up the rays on each like to 16, then 32, then 64, see when your noise stops. It depends on your scene's scale as well so it may be a high number. This will make render times longer, but will get rid of the noise.

I have 8 rays, but I've change them to 16 and the noise dissapeared.

Thanks
