View Full Version : HDRI RNL - Can I apply Caustics and Global Illuminaton by any chance?

12 December 2004, 05:35 AM
I'm just wondering. I'm creating an image (im just starting out) much like Paul Debevec's RNL, and I wanna know if I can apply caustics with RNL and Final Gather since I'm not using actualy Light sources. I saw someone on do that in max, and it looked cool. I'm sure mental ray can do it. :D

IBL node in render globals has 'emit photon' option. This should work.
