Iray question w/ image
show user profile  digital3ds


These little white specks that are sampling color (i think?) seem to increase the longer I render... I want to let this run over night but

a) should I worry about my video card exploding (gtx 590)
b) can I expect the renderer to get rid of these specks or am I forgetting something

a) your video card is made to be abused, abuse it, abuse it good
b) I would have thought those white specs are specular...

I think your right about it bein spec... this is how it looks after about 1.5hrs, so I guess it is cleaning up a bit. Iray is sick.. Vray look pretty sweet too

Not sure what your trying to achieve, I thought GPU rendering was for quick testing of materials etc not actually rendering final stills etc.... I mean you can use tongs to cook eggs but, you know, theres a spatula for that :P

I guess I didn't think of it like that.. I just saw the "unlimited" box and hear about ppl leaving it to render when they're (at work or sleeping) not busy.. After 8hrs the render doesn't look TOO much diff than 2hrs, i posted it over <-------
