I just want to stress how important it is to report such problems to RL in the Feedback tracker.
We might have gotten some answers from RL 3 month ago.



Thanks for the great detective work 4u2ges. Smile

I also want to reiterate what 4u2ges has said. It is vital that bugs and issues are reported in the Feedback Tracker and not just posted on the forum where they may be missed.

FT 6162   "Eliminate Shadow Artifact" does not work with MI Export now has "Released in 7.6" status.

Sorry to report but it was only half fixed.
Indeed, when running "Render Scene" with "Stand Alone Render (save mi scene)", artifacts are getting smoothed out in the rendered image.
However, if I turn around and initiate the render again from the Export folder, or use just "Save Mi Scene" and then render, artifacts are still there.

Looks like that parameter is passed *softly* into the render routine, but is NOT hard-coded into the Exported scene file.

New FT 6232 "Eliminate Shadow Artifact" is only partially fixed in IC7.6

Here is an update on the issue +.

I have found out there is difference in MI scene rendering depending on the method used for execution.
BTW: this is not the first time such a discrepancy have been discovered.

All is good if you Drag and Drop scene file onto the  Batch Renderer executable.
But I hate Drag and Drop and never use it. Instead I have made an .mi file association with IrayStandaloneRenderer.exe

So when I double click scene file and fire up renderer, at least 2 discrepancies could be observed (there might be more):

1. Shadow artifacts are not removed.
2. At the end, when message pops up asking to open file, there is NO button to open a log file.

I did verify that my file association is correct and even if I use "Open With* from context menu and navigate to the executable, it still does render with 2 problems mentioned above.

FT ticket was updated....


UPDATE:
Apparently where was an issue with file associations in Windows 10. it was pointing the older version of the Batch Renderer.
And even when I picked the right executable in "Open With", it would revert to the old one on the fly. I LOVE Microsoft!
After cleaning the .mi association in registry and recreating it all is working fine now.
