View Full Version : Light Exclusive/Inclusive Issues

02 February 2007, 02:02 AM
Has anyone any experience with NOT being able to use the Exclusive/Inclusive light feature for any reason. I have a scene that is refusing to adhere to any exclusive/inclusive models and can't figure out what is wrong. Every test I've ran outside the scene the function works as to be expected.

The only exceptional parts of this scene are volumetric lights, and "large" tangent space normal maps and the use of instances.

Any issues you've had and can share would be greatly appreciated.

Some shader like for example the mia shader seem to overide the light include/exclude settings. Do you use such a special shader?

The problem is the ts2_Illumination shader. Oh man...and it doesn't seem to respond to the default matte passes either what a PAIN.

Any suggestions for the quickest work around? I guess I'll have to create different solid mat passes for each group of objects...ugh...

EDIT- Figured it out- just need to place a constant shader override on the BG objects for each pass and it will all work as normal...

The TS2 shader has some issues with the include/exclude option as you discovered, as the MIA shader as it seems. There seems to be an update in the making for the TS2, unfortuanetly there's no ETA yet.
