we did some CPU vs FFT tests aswell, but I can't remember the exact kernel size where FFT started to be more efficient, but it was rather low. On the flip side Convolve on the GPU seem to have some memory problems and (at least for us) cause some random out of memory issues, even on beefy cards.
We found that using gaming techniques: up-scaling low frequency areas (then convolving) and only full convolving of high frequency areas to be to be quite efficient for the vast majority of our renders where the plate is gigantic or a large kernel size is needed. The result is perceptually indistinguishable. man. 20. mar. 2017 kl. 06.14 skrev Deke Kincaid <dekekinc...@gmail.com>: > The convolve node was fixed up quite a while a go(4-5 years ago, it is > what the zdefocus is based on).
