Notes:

Light Map not working.

True Colour Render Frame

Keep in mind that the brighter-white sections (the light paths) will appear much more prominent with motion.

V3 (Low-Res Render)

Notes: Light Map is made up of more independent paths than in V1 and V2. When compared to V1, the node movement is more jiggle-y and randomized. When compared to V2, it’s more smooth and in-control.
