Just a test to see how quickly noise is reduced over time in Cycles.
Final result at 1000 samples:
Two details at various sampling levels:
The good news is that there’s really little point in sampling above 300. The bad news is that the noise seems to go away pretty slow as well. No new insights of course, but always nice to have some actual examples.
ps. model made with Kangaroo, equi-sized sphere stacking under gravity constrained within the bigger sphere.
