View Full Version : Why won't the GI kick in?

12 December 2004, 04:14 AM
When I try to render a simple room scene, 3 with spotlights and put in some GI, Mental ray come up with
RCGI 0.2 error 361053: no photons stored after emitting 1000000 photons (canceling emission job)

RCGI 0.2 warn 362004: no photons stored after emitting 10000 photons

Several times. Any clue where would that lead to?

1) Do a thread search for "photons stored"...this question comes up almost weekly and has been addressed many times.

Also, this probably should've been posted in the general 3dsmax section rather than the resources section. :thumbsup:
