    Dealing with some strange rendering issues with Ambient Occlusion / Ray-Traced issues. On one frame, I get the accurate look I want. Then it disappears. Not really a flickering issue, but not getting consistent rendering through animation. When the shadow detail disappears, subtle banding is across the frame. I’ve experimented with many settings (samples, intensity, etc..) but nothing solving this issue. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Okay, so I scaled up the object by 200%, and thought I had it figured out, but seems like it’s getting worse. Render freezes with obvious similar and more apparent artifacts. Strange, while previewing different frames in timeline, doesn’t present problems. But when I render, the whole thing crashes. I have a pretty good graphics card, that is listed as a supported card.

    Nvidia Quadro P4000 / 32 GB RAM. Intel i7 7700K cpu 4.2 GHz

    Anyone seen something like this before?
