Noise in render of transparent object - Bas - 2016-08-26

Hi Guys,

I hope somebody can give me a tip how to remove noise from a POV-ray render of a glass object.

I made the model in LDD, exported it in LDD and converted the model with LDview to the POV format.

I used ambient lighting (3 standard light sources changed to ambient lights).

But as you can see the transparent train window shows noise.

Does anyone have a tip for me to reduce/remove the noice?

Thanx!

Does this part have a pov equivalent ? If yes, it is maiby because there are coincident surfaces which make noise in povray.

Solution would be not to use the LGEO equivalent or to create your own without the problem.

Hi Damien,


Thanks for your response. I checked the /lg/ directory and there is a equivalent: lg_4036.
How do I bypass this LGEO version?

Remove this in your LGEO.xml file :

        <Element>    
            <LDrawFilename>4036.dat</LDrawFilename>
            <POVName>lg_4036</POVName>
            <POVName Alternate="Clear">lg_4036_clear</POVName>
            <Dependency>LGDefs</Dependency>
            <POVFilename>lg_4036.inc</POVFilename>
            <MatrixRef>LGEOTransform</MatrixRef>
        </Element>

        </Element>

Will do! Thanks! I will let you know if it works!

It worked!

Thanx Damien!

Clear plastic parts look too "milky" in LGEO/POV output IMO.

Try using radiosity instead of classic lightning.

Yes, I am using LGEO. Here's a good example:

You can hardly see through the glass.

Looks like I need to revive my lugnetcolors.inc file
Also +1 for radiosity. Transparency is rendered way better
