View Full Version : Gritty mental ray global illumin...

02 February 2002, 09:51 PM

The shadows that my sky-dome generates are kind of gritty, even if I set the accuracy of the global illumination way high.
I'm quite sure that if I would render an animation with these settings, the 'shadows' would flicker all over the place.

Any ideas on how to get better illumination and shadows using sky-domes in mental ray?

i dont have mental ray is it good? as for the grittyness does the sky dome have settings for the shadows like soften or maybe raytraced you couls also try adding some accentuating normal lights they might help smooth out the shadows have thoes set rather low like 0.3 intensity just a thaught
