I think both are just examples of general GI issues that we're already aware of, although one or both files may be useful for tracking down specific issues and resolving them. RArcher's scene in particular seems to have a very interesting behavior. One thing I can say is cranking GI up to 8/8 got rid of the problem. ;)

I'll keep that in mind if I get really desperate  ;)

I can imagine the render time.

Turns out turning GI Relative Detail down to 1, with any setting of Sample Quality, seems to also fix it on Ryan's scene. I'll run some tests on your scene shortly with what I've learned on his. It would be interesting if it behaved similarly.

Hi Ben,

It would be interesting to see if you can narrow it down to certain elements of the scene (i.e. not just render settings). For example it would be interesting if it only happens with atmosphere or cloud layers, or with reflective oceans etc.

Just because milk is white doesn't mean that clouds are made of milk.

OK Matt

I'll pull it apart piece by piece and see if anything changes.
