In this course we're going to look at something a little different, creating technically accurate 3D printed parts.

Hypershade Previews with Arnold GPU are Noisy, CPU is not. (Maya 2022.1)

With Arnold set to GPU:

In GPU mode it's like the Hypershade preview doesn't progressively refine itself. It seems like it stops after just a few samples.

Anyone know if I'm missing something?

As far as i know there is no way to change this, as the material viewer in the hypershade is not connected to the render settings it's simply a preview.

I never use it though i prefer to use the viewport arnold view as this is connected to the render settings.

Hopefully someone that uses it might be able to help more
