View Full Version : Xstr + Maya --> No shadows on maya objects?

09-19-2007, 10:23 AM

i 'm trying to test render a scene with xstream and maya 8.5 through mental ray and i notice that vue lights don't cast sharp shadows on maya objects, although native xstream objects do. how can i correct this?

if i import these objects in xstream then mental ray casts sharp shadows....

has anyone come across such an issue? is it a bug or something else?
thanks in advance,

i found it in the docs....

shadow mode should be segments...

thanks anyway!
