Difference between preview and rendered

Hi D5 team !
Is it normal to have rendered images look different from High quality preview? If so then what to do to adjust the settings ? I really like the soft shadows in the preview
Thank you.


Hello, the final render will calculate light bounces more accurately and it needs more time to accumulate lights.
You could turn off Auto-exposure, then adjust exposure and sky light direction manually.
Also, if you want to make shadows more soft or sharp, it is suggested to use HDRI instead of geo&sky, because there is a parameter called Sun Disk Radius for HDRI.
