First, set up your AOVs like this:
Then run noice like this:
set IMAGES="C:\Users\Stephen Blair\Documents\3ds Max 2020\renderoutput\denoiseme" set ARNOLD_BIN=S:\solidangle\arnold\Arnold-188.8.131.52-windows\bin %ARNOLD_BIN%\noice ^ -ef 2 -sr 2 -pr 2 -v 0.5 ^ -i %IMAGES%/AOVs0003.exr ^ -i %IMAGES%/variance0003.exr ^ -l diffuse ^ -l specular ^ -o %IMAGES%/denoised_AOVs0003.exr
The AOVs and variance AOVs are in separate EXRs
That’s necessary to be able to have different filters for the same AOV in MAXtoA
Tip: In the Windows command prompt, you can use ^ (Shift + 6) character to indicate line continuation, and break long commands into multiple lines. You can also use ^ in in a batch file.
