I’ve seen loads of threads on how Linux can render images more quickly, and I always presumed they’d look the same, but mine don’t - in fact the same file on Mint looks awful!
I have an i7 cpu and nvidia gtx 980 gpu. Windows 10 pro and the latest Linux Mint. All up to date.
On both I have release candidate 2 of Blender. And using Blender Cloud sync all my settings are the same.
In Mint I ran the drivers app and selected the Intel and Nvidia Drivers.
I have a work in progress file created in Windows, I packed all images and saved to a USB stick. I then re-opened Blender and hit Render… and saved the image as a PNG.
I then booted to Mint, opened Blender, opened the file and hit Render, and saved once more.
As it was rendering I could see the quality was much worse in Mint.
Both files are linked below, and tagged with the OS they were rendered in. Mint was quicker, but the file size is bigger, and it looks poor.
Any ideas anyone?! I’d love to get it working properly.
