I have bunch of pots stacked up in maya and I've painted gasses and flowers from Vue and brought it over so plants grow in betwen pots. I realized I need to render pots and vue plants seperatly. However, when I put all the shaders for pots as "blackhole," I would see the whole length of the flowers and grasses as if there are no pots 'blackhole-ing' them. I also tried assigning 'use background' shader on the pots, but still same effect. I guess 'blackhole' mode in shader and 'usebackground' shader has no effect on vue plants?
Can anyone please~help me out to overcome this issue..?
