View Full Version : Outlines in Vector

07 July 2003, 01:12 AM
WIth the vector renderer in maya 5 is there anyway to specify if a piece of geometry has outlines rendered on it or not.

the reason being i have some geometry on a plane and i want the plane rendered for reflections but i dont want the outline of it rendered as a line in the distance. I only want the outline on the geometry that is on top of the plane.

Is there a way to do this ? I have tried playing with clipping planes but this doesnt work.

thanks in advance

Uncheck primary visibility on the plane?
It would still be seen in the reflections

so do you want the actual plane to have outlines? but in the reflection you dont want outlines? that is a composting problem. if its polygons if you select a edge go to normals soften harden turn the edge to a hard value, then it will render. you could do it that way. but im just confused on what your trying to do.
