Hi All,
I have been using Archicad Products for around 3 years now as per my Subject Requirements. I have been recently working on an assignment and have been running unto this unusual visual error within the Rendering space of Archicad.

This 'Visual Error' has appeared multiple times in my Rendering environment, and greatly effecting my productivity, having to restart each of my Rendering Sequences. It appears that during the Rendering Process, the Environment Lighting appears to change mid-Render, causing large areas of my Rendering to have noticeable patches of variable 'brightness.'

Sorry, I cannot quite describe what I'm seeing, but I have had this problem persist, consistently, through 4 Rendering images and have attached the unfinished Renders below.

It took me a while to spot your problem, but you mean the boxes the appear around the trees.
That is because you have used 'billboard' style (flat) trees.

I don't do a lot of renders but using 'physical' render settings should help.
I found this post that might help you out.
