View Full Version : Shadows in R&R

02 February 2009, 04:30 PM
Is there any way to get shadows to appear in the reflection and refraction render passes? I am using 3ds Max as my 3d app.

I was guessing previously that they weren't appearing in the composite because of using additive blending modes on the layers, but taking a closer look I can't even see them in the actual R&R passes, so now I'm wondering if they're even included at all.

I'm thinking this might just be something that is unavailable, but I figured I would still ask out of curiosity. Maybe somebody will have some good news!

I decided to play around with the blend element and combine the reflection and refraction passes with the shadow pass. This seems to be doing a pretty nice job. I totally forgot about the blend element!
