Black Shadows / Shadow Catcher - Denoiser

Hi All,

I'm wondering if it's possible to denoise the black shadows pass? At the moment I am rendering out a denoised beauty pass + black shadows and reflection however the shadows are still very grainy.

I would be interested in an answer to this too. The shadow pass is still completely unusable after all this time.

Hi,
this is Standalone related, and the issue should be already fixed in latest SDKs, 4.04. 2018.1.3.
Please, post an example scene that shows the issue.

Please, export in .orbx to Standalone, then try to render from there.
If you have the same issue, please share it in Standalone 4.04 discussion with screenshots, thanks:

If not, please share the scene with me via PM, thanks.

It's the same in Standalone, I'll post it there.
But the scene is under NDA.

Hi,
thanks for testing in Standalone.
Could you replace the sensitive objects with a dummy one?

I already did that :)

Please have a look in the Standalone thread.
