Thomas Dinges (dingto) updated subscribers of T50700: Possible NaNs with refractive BSDF.

Doesn't look like a bug, just reflections from the lamp. Disable MIS for the lamp and the birght spots go away.

Thomas Dinges (dingto) added a comment to T50460: Cycles cull option ui problem.

I don't see how this is an underlying issue with the layout engine. Using a .active or .disabled tag, assigned to a certain layout block will affect all of its assigned properties. So using two different UI blocks is a proper fix.

Thomas Dinges (dingto) added a comment to D2348: Cycles: Refactor split kernel and implement for CPU.

I would not scatter Cycles development at this point, either we move all Cycles development to the 2.8 branch (which I wouldn't do just yet) or we stick to master. Putting some things into the branch while keeping maintenance and smaller changes in master will only ask for trouble later. Also we still have a few months until a 2.79 release, enough time to fix issues when they come up.

Thomas Dinges (dingto) added a comment to T50193: Cycles renders volumetrics very differently on CPU vs. GPU.

Decoupled Ray Marching for homogeneous volumes should work on GPU (when enabled via ifdefs of course), but when I tested that, it wasn't stable. For heterogenous volumes, the current code uses dynamic mem alloc, which is slow on GPU and was giving me mem errors. That was 1-2 years ago though, situation might have changed.
