Hey, I don't know whether this will help or not.
As long as this is the only problematic area and you use the same material on all objects, I would guess the prob is in the geometry. Maybe flipped normals or something special which causes those artifacts.

Hi Gruender - thanks for the reply.  That's what I thought too.  I created the ties in Marvelous Designer (the geometry is rather dense) and then added a cloth surface modifier to them in C4D to get a little thickness.  I have tried making the cloth editable and the result is the same.  All normals are in the correct direction.  I've tried without the thickness modified too.  I am out of ideas.

I've got a closet design to finish for a client this weekend.  The view cleans up quite fast (within 15 minutes without denoiser), but the area around the neckties continues to show artifacts/noise - see attached.  I have tried different settings to balance the sampling with no luck.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get this cleaned up?  Thanks!

These images are stunning!  Thanks for sharing them...

Thanks for sharing your methodology.  I found the talk quite interesting...  Your renders are amazing!

Thanks.  The material is very well done!

Very beautiful work!  Where did you get the wood beam material?  I will be needing something like this for an upcoming project.  Thanks...

Is there any way to fit a render to fill the entire frame buffer?  As it stands now, I can only zoom in/out by 200%/50%.  The Corona Image Editor behaves the same way.  Now that more post work can be done directly in the frame buffer, having zoom to fit would be a nice feature.  I know this can be done in C4D's picture viewer, but I prefer to work in the VFB.  Thanks.

I use Substance Designer/Painter for all my maps.  Bitmap2materials is also very good for generating from images (also by Allegorithmic).

Eddoron - thanks for confirming.  I think the need to invert Y comes from 3DS Max where it is necessary.

Attached are the normal images I used to test.  The only one giving proper results is DirectX.

I'm not using the Corona export settings from within Substance.  The normal maps I use are definitely formatted DirectX and they work as intended in the Corona normal shader without swapping or flipping any of the settings - which leads me to conclude Corona uses DirectX not OpenGL.  Would be good to hear from support on this.

draekser above states:

just click on flip Y (green), it is not a long or hard process.

Corona normal map is OpenGL normal, no direct x Normal.

I find the opposite to be true.  DirectX normals work just fine in Corona (at least as exported from Substance Painter/Designer).  Would someone from the Corona team please confirm the proper format for normals?  Thanks Kevin

burnin - thanks for the reply.  It would take a long time to break down those openings.  Besides, I am getting fairly decent results within a couple hours.  Where did you read that they were doing away with portals?
