"0295 is up, includes scale factor for preview image and stop after # passes.  Haven't gotten to New light channel option in Lights interface yet.  Check it out if you have a chance (no worries if not.)"

"Reliance on the noise filter does concern me a little. A lot of my work involves wood grain and fabrics, both of which can have varying degrees of texture which affect the way light is reflected. With the noise filter off, are renders likely to take…"

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
