View Full Version : Area Light Splotchiness

12-24-2014, 05:50 AM
Hello - I am having trouble with the area light shadows in v11.6. A scene I created in v9.6 using an area light resulted in the expected soft shadow. I had the "quality" switch cranked up around 6.

When I moved the scene at render time to a faster machine running v11.6, the same area light now created noisy splotchy shadows. Would someone please tell me where the equivalent "quality" setting for this light type is in v11.6? - Thanks and Merry Christmas!

There's no single setting... the difference comes from the switch to unified smapling...
