I’m going through the Blender manual to learn Blender and CG/animation. I just finished my first animation based on the reflective sphere and plane in the section on environment maps.
I’m getting some flickering in the animation on the sphere and on the reflection of the sphere in the water. What is the best way figure out and resolve this? This two-second animation took me three hours to render, so I hope I don’t have re-render this too many times!
