I’m currently using a dark and overcast day HDRI to illuminate a scene of a car. The render is looking smooth and firefly free. However, I’d like to implement some faint lights in the distance, as perhaps these ‘lights’ came on a little early in anticipation for night. My goals is to get some nice spot highlights and glistening effects on the details of the car… minor but visible.
My attempt was almost successful, however fireflies were very present and it wasn’t worth sacrificing the render clarity. Is there any way to add these small glistening spot details without changing the whole lighting look?
