When I turn an object (with an emission shader) in my scene on it makes part of the scene actually go darker.
The light in question is on the outside of a vehicle (which has lights on the inside of the vehicle too) The light on the outside of the vehicle cannot reach the inside of the vehicle as it has no path.
I have made a quick example of the problem. But the problem I am seeing is more pronounced than this example, in my scene even if I turn the samples up to 2000 I never recover the light and it still appears darker and more grainy.
Here is a quick 100 sample render with the light disabled:
And here is a render with the light enabled:
Notice that in the second picture that the scene inside the vehicle actually becomes darker
What can I do to tackle this issue???
I have got clamp Direct set to 4 and indirect set to 2 which tackles a lot of the grainy-ness but adding this light just makes my scene look terrible... but i need this light as it is integral to the scene.
