Precached map has low continuity ratio

What does it mean?
How does it affect rendering (because low ratio is rendering slower? noisier? ...?)
How to elliminate this message?
Do I have to care about it?

Re: Master Plan Development

K3 instances are working here.
But if you spray 1 vertex polys in modeler and use instances on them, it'll crash. After killing polys and use instance only on sprayed points it works!

Hi, I have some problems with an exterior scene. I'd like to render instanced grass, but the rendertime is incredibly slow compared to the non-instanced version. With grass instances: 90 minutes Without grass instances: 21 minutes Actually the "without instances" version also contains the ...

"Only ambient light without physical lights."

Re: Using Kray for many years and I love it !

btw about post process aspects. G. will prepare also special plugin for K3PostProcess which will contain all these effects from you renders: shine, sparks, bloom, vignette, halogen flares, etc. This will be processing based on internal HDRi image information - so effect will be more accurate and in...

Re: Struggling with RC2

I hope that fixed FS#122 and updated setup will significantly cut down render times. Now I found that the only solution to elminate the noise is render at 4x resolution, and scale back to original.
