View Full Version : black artifacts in mental ray render

06 June 2007, 01:59 PM

I'm getting black dot-like artifacts when rendering a scene with mental ray in maya.
While troubleshooting I found it comes from the HDRI in the MR IBL node. I tied several other HDRIs, but I can't get rid of the black dots.

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

Are you on Maya 8.5? They improved this issue (if it's the one I think it is) a lot in that release.
Otherwise: try and not use Light emission, but only FG on the IBL, because it seems to be the light emission that creates this stuff...

Thank you.
That was it.
