[Sidefx-houdini-list] Render speed - quantization bit depth
Thursday, 10 March 2016 Thu, 10 Mar '16
A substantial amount of The Lego Movie was denoised with neat video. Most of the time it worked great, but the usual rule of '10% of shots took 90% of the time to denoise' applied. :) The revision folk have been working on a denoiser specifically for renderers, might be worth a look. I helped them a little bit early on in the pre-alpha (mainly explaining the sort of problems we face in cg and giving them some example scenes), but haven't had time to check it out since it was released. http://revisionfx.com/products/denoise/ On 11 March 2016 at 00:35, Larry Giunta <larry at gcreativestudios.com> wrote:
