View Full Version : Preview Render Shadow

09 September 2006, 10:07 AM
I made a quick rendering of a comanche model I'm working on and I want the shadow to be smooth and have an overall nice grayscale rendering. This was what I got, the shadow is all graining, I want it to be smooth.

Anyone know what settings I should adjust/use to get a good basic grayscale rendering in mental ray?

I'm guessing from the dots all over the shop that you're using radiosity to light the scene? If so, I'm also guessing that you don't have enough photons? Try playing with the settings in the Indirect Illumination tab of the render dialogue. Ticking "final gather" also improves the quality a lot but increases render time.

Hope that helps.
