This is a WIP that needs work in a number of areas, but the one that I am stumped on is the reflections on the rear wall that are being cast by the glass in the door. How can I remove or soften them without blurring out the reflections in the glass itself?

I appreciate any advice!
If you need more info I can post screens of settings if necessary...

:help:

...thought it was reflections from the glass but that turned out not to be the case...trying volumetrics at the highest quality settings...hopefully that's it.

That is freaky. How many lights in the scene, have you tried turning off raytrace shadows? Do you really have reflection in the wall surface?

turns out, it was the quality settings for volumetrics...I have a distant light coming in through the door with volumetrics and 1 area light in the main room. The volumetrics default to medium quality. After raising to the highest settings the little patterns went away. I posted a new render with the higher settings in the WIP forum here.

I haven't used volumetrics much in the past so never saw that one before...
