Daily Blender Tip 355: AI Denoiser node


Jan van den Hemel writes:

Hi, my name is Jan and I help companies by creating short videos for their websites and internal use, mostly as a freelancer for agencies. I post daily one-minute tutorials for Blender users and wrote the popular "Blender Secrets" e-books.


  1. I always thought ai refers to machine learning. I doubt however that a machine can learn a lot from only a single data (shouldn't call it data but datum since it is singular). So what is so intelligent here?

    • Not you, clearly. LOL. Kidding. The learning (e.g. analyzing large numbers of before/after noisy/denoised images) has already happened! It's coded into the denoiser's algorithms. If it were otherwise the results would suck for a long, looong time until you had done a huge number of renders.
