    <p>Right, we added the ability to square samples later on, as an
      option. If you already square samples and do that by default, you
      can keep that for Cycles4D. The change in the code is merely on
      the Blender UI part and Blender -&gt; Cycles exporter. No changes
      in the kernel. :)<br>

              <p>Hey everyone,<br>
              </p>
              <p>The 2.79 release still has the Squared Samples option.
                It was removed in master afterwards.</p>
              <p>I like the various UI simplifications that were made
                lately in Cycles, 2.8x gives us the chance to revisit
                several things and simplify the UI experience. I suggest
                to keep all the changes, and check what else we can
                improve during 2.8x. We can revisit at any later time,
                if needed. <br>

                                                  number of samples. But
                                                  if we get more
                                                  feedback about this
                                                  being a problem we can
