View Full Version : Lightwave 2018 Rendering Artifacts

Hoping someone has a clue why I'm getting these flashing artifacts on simple surfaces. (attached .mov)
I've tried many different aettings but am lost on which ones might be causing it.

Really appreciate any help getting them fixed!

Looks like an interpolated GI to me?

Yeah, that's interpolated GI doing it's thing. There's a fair bit of explaining to do to give you the full handle of the GI system... the long and short of it though is to up your rays a lot.

Like... a LOT, a lot.

Ok, thanks. I’ll dig into that aspect of it.

Seems like everyone's using bruit force these days, am I correct?

Interpolated is overall slower for me. I find brute force faster and less of a hassle to get right. Interpolated Seems slower to render after calculation, even at low settings. Interpolated also seems useless on complex scenes with lots of edges and fine detail. Brute Force and Denoising seems much better and faster.
