V-Ray Denoiser

...

The V-Ray Denoiser now comes with some modifications and new features:

Fancy Bullets
  • NVIDIA AI denoiser: The VRayDenoiser render element now comes with a denoising engine menu, which allows you to choose between the Default V-Ray Denoiser and V-Ray's integration of NVIDIA's AI-based denoising algorithm. The NVIDIA AI denoiser requires an NVIDIA GPU to work and has some advantages and drawbacks compared to the Default V-Ray Denoiser. For example, the NVIDIA AI denoiser performs the denoising faster, but is not consistent when denoising render elements. This means that there will be differences between the original RGB image and the one reconstructed from render elements that are denoised with the NVIDIA AI denoiser. It also doesn't support cross-frame denoising will likely produce flickering when used in animation.
  • The V-Ray Denoiser can now denoise render elements. To use this feature, enable the "denoise" checkbox for each render element in the scene that needs to be denoised.


UI

...

Fancy Bullets
