Hi everyone,

See attachment.

I am working on test renders for a large architectural scene. The camera slowly moves forward, and as lights exit the frame, they flicker and turn off. Also, another light seems to be flicking the entire time. 

Note: The momentary white flash at 6 seconds is intentional.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time.

Respect,
rswilliam

Looks like a cache issue, I'd try the other cache (ie try 4K if this is UHD, or try UHD if this is 4K), try precalculating the cache (https://support.chaos.com/hc/en-us/articles/4528617365649-How-to-use-the-UHD-Cache-for-animations-and-stills-), or just move to path tracing if none of the above works.

Thank you for your response @TomG - I appreciate it. :) I am using a path tracing workflow.

Maybe I'm wrong, but to me it looks more like displacement is just covering the light from time to time. Moving the lights a bit away from the wall should solve it.


Good Luck



Never underestimate the power of a well placed level one spell.
