Disable visibility in render
« on: February 20, 2017, 03:17:07 PM »
Hello,
I need to catch shadows from Forest objects. Is it possible to disable visibility in render of Forest object, but let it cast shadows ?

Hi, you would assign a matte shadow material to Forest. It should work identically as other standard Max objects.

Please note that by default Forest creates an multi-sub with all materials collected from the Geometry List, and assigns to itself.
So you should disable this feature before assigning the matte. It can be done turning off "Geometry->Consolidate Materials".
