Pet Project: Hugo – Base Mesh Turnaround

Reduced render time by 50% and removed banding on background by using combination of Blender’s 2.79 new features:
– denoising
– preview rather than final sampling
– limited rather than full global illumination
– shadow catcher plate with composited background rather than usual studio floor setup, effectively not generating banding.
