This is fantastic, thanks Dade!

I have noticed there is still a bit of discrepancy in the BIDIRCPU shading as camera angle increases (less so after the fix, but still some) compared with PATH*, but I have yet to find the time to post some definitive sample images and a scene. Let it rest for now until I can present something useful to you.

Same thing with metallic roughness. If I set it to 0.01, I get quite a blurry reflection. If I set it to 0.0099 or below, it goes perfectly mirror. Not sure if it's the material exporter (it's not; see link in edit). Again, let me do some tests and hopefully can find out what's going on there.

Edit 2: The roughness issue isn't with the exporter, it's the OpenCL PATH engine. See here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1438

Thanks for the update, works fine for me! These random dark edge appearances on surfaces did spoil the fun for me, and now I'm free :lol:
