Adam Friesen (ace_dragon) added a comment to T68891: Subdivision surface settings part of the Mesh.

Can I ask about the rationale for this? Is there is any advantage moving subsurf out of the modifiers would bring (ie. performance)?

Adam Friesen (ace_dragon) added a comment to D4686: Adaptive Sampling for Cycles..

Just chiming in to say that after the big OIDN patch, getting this one in master ASAP will make Cycles render performance compared to 2.80 feel like night and day. I can verify that idea from (OIDN) tests I've done in today's midday buildbot build for Win64.

Is there any reason for the decision to not fix these regressions for the 2.8 final release? Unless the solutions are more complex than we users think they are, it seems like an unforced error that really dampens what would otherwise be a truly major milestone.

Adam Friesen (ace_dragon) added a comment to D4304: Compositor: Added denoising node.

In defense of the built-in Cycles denoiser, one needs to take into account the fact that it produces markedly better results on a noticeably noisy image when Branched Path Tracing is used instead of normal Path Tracing (especially in areas like highlights and reflections). There have also been improvements in recent 2.8 builds as indicated by the pass data.
