This setting seems to be on by default but can have a major effect on render times and results, don't worry about the overall look and render times ( just the difference) as this is just a test for this setting I have used a single infinite light set up as a physical sun/sky with IR and LC In the first image it is on and render times are 8 min 46 secs note the lighting and shadows on the stairs Attached File  std846.jpg   31.02KB   81 downloads In this image it is off and render times are 11 min 7 secs Attached File  nstd1107.jpg   31.06KB   78 downloads I think you can see that the latter ( setting off) has better definition. So i suggest you do some tests and use the render region tool to see the effects

Hi I have a problem that GI creates spots of light in my renderings. When I turn GI off, I dont think the rendering looks as good. Is there any setting to minimize the spots, without turning off GI? Hildes-Salong---Vaskesone.jpg
