Hi Bill,

Thanks, it's good to see you, too!

Hopefully I'll get more stuff going soon. I tend to go through long stretches of
having no creativity... or rather, I often lack the energy needed to make
things. One problem is I've always tried to do everything except mesh modeling
in POV-Ray, but that resulted in me having to do crazy things just to get
reasonable render times. With this denoising, I can hopefully stop relying on
many of those crazy tricks.

I don't know the details of how Blender denoises images, but I think it uses
Intel's Open Image Denoise, which is based on machine learning of some kind.

Sam
