02 February 2012, 12:04 PM
Hi all,

I'm stuck hear with a peculiar problem( i think). Actually i have some cabinets and all inside a room and i already have rendered the occlusion for the room except of those furniture. Now i want the furniture to cast occlusion on the wall (contact occlusion) but i don't need the wall (wall bit, and the designs on the wall) itself cast any occlusion on it(on wall itself).

I'm using Maya here.I tried couple of shader and utilities but they doesn't work.and didn't get much help from net.

So if anyone has some trick or tutorial or technique please share it with me :) i really need help. please please please :)

and thanks in advance :)
