Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to T50292: SSS + Win10-64bit + gtx1070.

Lowering Diffuse/SSS/.. samples and increasing AA samples does not lower quality, it's only about performance and noise. Using 8x8 = 64 SSS samples per AA sample is usually the wrong balance, I'd advise to use much lower values.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to D2412: Render layer and collections.

I thought this over again, but I'd still suggest to replace the master collection with a master layer. It seems pretty inconsequent to allow having this special collection to stand alone. The layer is the trunk of each tree, except for the master collection, where the trunk is a collection. This would be a visible inconsistency for users: In 3D Views they could choose from any regular render layer, maybe the local layer and from the master collection. So they could choose from layers and the master collection instead of just layers.
And what if users want to render the master collection with control over AOVs, overrides, etc? They had to create a new render layer just for the master collection.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to D2285: Cycles: Don't sync unneccessary attributes for final renders.

Seems like a good approach. The downside of this patch is that the simplification is no longer multithreaded. It should be possible to multithreaded BlenderSync::sync_materials though, so that it's even faster than before due to multithreaded Blender material export.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to D2406: Cycles: Experiment with cutout closure.

I think doing this using objects is the right solution, even if textures let you do some similar things. The purpose here is to be able to apply the cutout on an entire scene without having to go and modify the materials for each object in the scene.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to D2398: Cycles: Fix light objects visible in sharp glossy reflections.

There are two tricks that I know of to solve the aliasing issue:

  • Render at higher resolution, tonemap, and scale down. Either manually or as some kind of automatic thing where subpixel samples are preserved. Maybe even using something like OpenDCX deep EXR files, but this is of course quite complicated and affects the entire pipeline.
  • Do a remapping before and after pixel filtering, scaling down high values and scaling them up again. This is biased but still preserves things a bit better than clamping. See e.g. info on the remapping option in RIS here and here.

This patch also seems to be for an older version of the code, in latest master there have been a bunch of changes to the device code so this will need to be updated for that.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to D2383: Cycles: Add option to replace GI with AO approximation after certain amount of bounces.

I don't know if we want to do this, but perhaps we should actually be using shadow_blocked() here to get partial transparency like AO? It's more expensive if there is transparency, but also useful for volumes and cutout transparency.

If the problem here is indeed C++ symbol collisions, couldn't we just hide all those symbols? Adding *__Z* in osx_locals.map should hide all Blender C++ symbols. We already hide Boost symbols but maybe there are some that we missed.

Here's what I'd like to commit:

  • Backwards compatibility only for compute_device_type, the device ID is too complicated to map and only affects multi GPU users.
  • Add userpref.blend version and check that, it's not the same as regular .blend.
  • Rename old property to legacy_compute_device_type, and hide in the UI.
  • Only apply backwards compatibility for users that haven't already resaved their user prefs (<= 2.78.1).
  • Always show device enum in render properties, greyed out if not usable so that users can look at the tooltip to guide them to the user prefs.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) requested changes to D2348: Cycles: Refactor split kernel and implement for CPU.

To me this seems like the right direction, but I don't yet understand all the code or implications well enough. Is there a high level design document somewhere with the plan?
