Hello,
I've got a question to all MentalRay users.I've got a scene (first plan) when only camera is moving.Everything else like moving people and moving object will be added in postprocess.So,now each frame is precalculating photons and FG like a new frame but nothing with lighting and object doesn't change in my scene.Is this possible to precalculate photon or FG to speed up this process?I think that saving a pohton map and FG map doesn't work in this case because...i don't know.
There's a good solution in final render but i don't like it:(
If you know the answer please let me know
Cheers.

Why would it not work?

You can save the photon map for sure and set the fg map to not rebuild. That's what they are there for...!
