    This article shows some great firefly avoidance settings that I kinda scratch my head at, why are they not implied from the getgo on installation?

    Examples:

    -Use “Multiple Importance Sampling” for HDRs

    -Use ‘Filter Glossy’ at 0.5

    -Check “No Caustics” (to then turn on later if required, which to me seems like a pretty good artistic approach, as it renders things nicely from the getgo, and optionally we can then use caustics with clamp later on)

    From what I know, these could be implemented in the Setup.blend file when you save the Startup file. I just wanted to suggest maybe having these setting as a default when you install BFA.

    What do you think?

    Hey Draise,

    Yes, this settings can be stored in the startup.blend. And that way we can make it standard.

    I am usually super careful with changing standards. Some are no brainers, but some strikes back. So let me first double check what caveats it has before we change it :)

    Yeah, gotcha. Wise approach.

    Concering the others in the article: some of them I would not implement, like the clamp and huge samples for a refined image.

    Task created so that this issue doesn’t sink in the forum. https://www.bforartists.de/content/have-look-cycles-render-defaults

    So, what should be the new defaults?

    Done. The only change that made it was to turn caustics off in the defaults :)
