Reality Rendering Options

Postby sigstan » Thu Jul 28, 2016 2:29 pm

Reality 4.3 comes with many new render settings when compared to the original Reality 4.0 and it can be a little daunting to navigate all of them.

The Reality User Guide offers good information, but I have tried to put a little quick-guide together on what the settings mean and what combinations work well.

This guide will cover the following areas:
• Render Modes
• Surface Integrators (MonoDir/BiDir)
• Samplers (Metropolis/Sobol)
• Other Settings

Since Luxrender and Reality have regular updates I will try to keep this updated. This guide is updated to version 4.3.

We need one of those big thumbs up buttons over here.
