Blender, I’ve noticed, goes through a specific process when rendering in parts. It renders darker, but once it completes a section it gets lighter. Well, I have no idea what’s going on under the hood, but I frequently seem to prefer the darker, more saturated/contrasty version better. Uhm, here, let me show you an example:
See? The darker portions are being rendered and the lighter portions are already done. And the portions that are already complete just look so… gray. Is there a setting I don’t know about that’s making it lighter? Gamma?
Soooo, I’m just wondering what’s actually happening here and if there’s any way to hold on to the darker renders. Of course I could get the same effect with the node editor, but uh, that would take more work.
