  1. Hi,
    Thanks for this tutorial.
    I used tip 3 to 6 .. to test on a 1,400 frames animated environment.
    In this scene of "animated rendering" it does helps to improve about 40 to 50% time reduction using sampling = 32, add denoise (no caustic and reduce light path .. the latter 2 helps a little bit on speed rendering). More importantly is the sampling and the denoise (improve quality results).

    Here's my video demo and the details of results and settings ..
