I'm new to blender and I started last week. I'm now having trouble with the final results of my render, it looks incredibly grainy. enter image description here

What I have tried so far is that I changed the resolution to 100% , samples to 500, tried using the 'area light' and i enabled 'multiple importance'.

Here's the link to my Blender file:


I can't find the AA settings:

Update: When I try to render my animation it comes out as nothing. enter image description here

It also says this:

  • $\begingroup$ Your images show that you are rendering at 50% resolution. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ No resolution should be 100 percent (unless you want to downsample after) Please edit your question and detail what you have tried and update the images with your current settings. A faster way to help you is if you upload your file for inspection. Use blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com and edit the link into your original post. $\endgroup$
