I have been trying to troubleshoot this for some time now. Whenever I use an HDRI to light my scene, I get the following effect on my objects after rendering in cycles. A patchiness that I cannot seem to get rid of. This doesn't occur when I use standard lighting in my scene. Only when I light my scene with an HDRI. I am using the most recent 2.8 (at least as of this writing).
There is nothing fancy about the HDRI setup, nor is there anything unusual about the textures on the floor. The walls have a principled shader on them with nothing else applied. I am perplexed at what is causing this and would very much like to eliminate this.
Thanks ahead of time.
