Can someone please render with a lot of samples and full HD and denoiser?
That would be great, my pc is simply not capable of such torture :lol:

How many is "a lot" for this scene? I'm happy to let mine go overnight and/or all day tomorrow while I'm at work. I have an i9 9900K overclocked to 5GHz :twisted:

The longer the better ;) But overnight should be enough with your specs😁

Just to make sure it's the correct one - do you want the one you posted, DEBIHOOD, or the one from sarmath with the extra-visible light beams?

Because as he points out, you can hardly see the beams in the one that you uploaded :cry:

Use sarmath scene, visible rays look better and more close to the original scene

Glad I checked :lol: restarting...

For what it's worth, attached is where your scene got to in just over 20 minutes (371 samples)

On my cpu 265 samples in HD (720p) took 5 hours, oidn is also not supported

:o :( sorry to hear that!

Now, just over 1 hour has passed. Still quite noisy at 1K samples, but it might be starting to look OK after about 10K samples (1 CFu for all those who remember "CarbonFlux units"... ;) )

Well, here is the progress after 9 hours of rendering. It's up to just over 9,400 samples per pixel. I'll let it keep going all day while I'm at work as it's not quite noise-free yet (inside the glass spheres especially), although you have to look much closer to notice now... :D

Note that they have not gone through the compositor yet, because that only happens once rendering is complete. And if I stop it, well ... right now you can't resume a stopped rendering. Even to save the images I had to use the Snipping screenshot tool and then crop it with GIMP :geek:
