Via Arvid Schneider’s Tweet, we learned about a free tool, Arnold RayCounter, which you can download by joining the CG Lounge Discord Server. If you’re using Arnold to render, this will help you figure out the number of samples.

Arnold RayCounter – It’s just a simple tool that will help you get sample estimates. Arnold scales pretty well, double the amount of rays per pixel, will most likely double render time.
