So I'm relatively new to blender. Are samples the same as resolution and if so how do they work? I don't know what resolution I'm rendering at right now but I want it to be higher. How do I do this because I don't see a resolution option?

  • $\begingroup$ @Harry McKenzie sort of. I think it should let me make the image bigger and essentially double the quality. Like its les pixely if i zoom in $\endgroup$ Apr 6, 2022 at 3:00

More samples means a higher quality image with less noise, as well as more realistic caustics, reflections, and volumes. Increasing the resolution increases the pixel size and dimensions of the final render.
