Hello guys I need a little help, the Denoiser below Adaptive Sampling suddenly disappeared. How can I enable it back?


It's now placed in the View Layer Properties, see screenshot. But actually I would use the Denoise node in the Compositor, because the Denoising option slows down the render and the result is inferior to the Denoise node from my experience.


Just plug it inbetween your render and the composite output, the result is usually far better than the Denoising even if you don't use any additional Denoising Data in the Normal and Albedo inputs.

  • $\begingroup$ Hello Gordon, thank you I found the Denoise in the View Layer but it used to be in the Render Properties, and it has NLM and OpenImageDenoiser. $\endgroup$ – sanaaa May 16 at 9:12

    $\begingroup$ I know it used to be in the Render Properties, I just told you where it is now. Sometimes when new versions of Blender come out things change, that's how it goes. $\endgroup$ – Gordon Brinkmann May 16 at 10:33
