Soft & Samples


(DAK) #1

I have been experiemening with samples and softness for the lights, and the default value of 3 seems totaly inadequate, while values of 10 for soft give a more smooth realistic trasition.
I am interrested to know what the ratio for most people’s samples to soft ratio is. I keep hearing lopsided values and would like to know where I stand.

I cannot see why there would be a particular setting that is ‘correct’, since it all depends on the context and the desired result. But for your statistics, I personally end up at around 8 samples and a soft setting of 8 as well. That is the case most of the time and applies to the primary shadow-caster in a scene.
