Tutorial on How Many Rays to Use

The number of rays, especially the ones called late rays, will determine how accurate the results are. However, it will also extend the calculation time. There is no correct answer in how many rays you need. It all depends on the accuracy you need, the time you have, the complexity of your room, if the distribution of sound absorption is uneven, and more. However, there are some tips in the following videos.
