Cycles iteration wish

Hi @nathanletwory, I wonder if it is possible for you to change cycles first iteration-image.
I have tried to explain this before, so I try again with some images.

Take a look at how much black there is in this first pass of an image:

Here is the image after 200 passes:

As you can see it has no black, and it is still quite nosy.

So I wonder if it is possible for the first pass to only use rendered pixles, at an even lower resolution ala this:

I imagine that would make it much better to navigate and result in less noice in the 200th pass, even if the first pass would take a bit longer to calculate.


@Holo, I have created an issue for this to track this.

I can’t promise anything soon, but this is definitely something I’d like to take a look at.
