Scattered mesh with vraylightmtl doen't emit light?
« on: March 29, 2012, 06:08:18 PM »
Why is it that when I scatter my mesh with vraylightmtl it will not emit light? if i manually copy the mesh it works fine? is there a setting i have overlooked?

A test scene here seems to work fine...

I created a test scene like yours and it worked here too, very strange but I can't make it work within my large scene, do you have any ideas what I could look for as the culprit?

thank you for the fast reply :)

Have you tried to convert the items to standalone instances using Forest Tools ? Would be interesting to know if there is some difference.

I tried to convert to instances and then it works :S Very strange, I hope we can find a solution to that :)

I cannot reproduce the problem here, even rendering thousands of items. Please, send us a test scene to check it.
