I have an issue with image quality inside Photoshop. I've opened the .mxi that was rendered and this is the render (SL20):


When I turn off the render and turn all the other layers on and select Linear Dodge (add) for all of them, I get this:


Somehow one of the emitter layers (warm light at left) is very noisy when it is a separate layer, even at SL20, while in the render itself, the noise is pretty much gone. I've done some test renders before and compared to those, it seems that it gets worse with higher SL instead of better..

How is this possible?

Also, there is a bright line around the geometry on the second image, which isn't there in the full render above. How to get rid of this?
