this is my follow up on poor AO light. viewtopic.php?f=81&t=71404
I did some tests and I noticed AO just doesn't shine on objects when there are a lof of lights in the scene. Please fix it. Path tracing and Diffuse doesn't have this problem.
If you look at the picture both images are done in AO mode. Identical objects. There is light on the ground on the right side and it shines great. As soon as I unhide lots of lights and other objects (light posts, skyscraper lights etc) AO light on the ground is not visible anymore like there is not enough of it. That's why one light post shines well but when there are 1000 of them they don't shine on a ground or other objects anymore. This is a bug.
All lights in the scene have sampling rate 1000-2000 Can this be the reason but then diffuse works
I don't know what you did, I used around 6000 lights with 2000 sampling and all seems to work in pathtracing as DL AO.
I have no idea about your issue.
Thanks, Paride. I will send you the scene
