Hi Kenneth,

Thanks!

The denoiser is doing all the heavy lifting; everything else is pretty easy when
using just one pass.

Learning how to operate Blender might be worth it, even if only for its modeling
capabilities. But it's admittedly not an easy program to get into, mostly due to
the daunting interface. But it all starts to make sense and eventually shows
itself to be a good design choice once you learn the basics, imo :)
