View Full Version : .rpf and shadows

how can I tweak the shadowbuffer in a .rpf file in DFX+?
I cant find any relevant tool for it and the shadow buffer is not mentioned in the online help.

I'm not sure I quite understand here. RPF files (from Max anyways) do not have a shadow buffer. They have a UVW and Normal buffer to allow lighting after the fact.

Or are you referring to the rendering of layers (ie diffuse, spec, shadow, etc) ?

Well, in the RPF exporter in Lightwave I can choose to export a shadow buffer. Now I'm trying to access it in DFX+.

Ok, my guess is that the shadow buffer is a non-standard as far as RPF files go. Best bet is to e-mail a copy of your rpf file to tech at eyeonline.com and they will look. I know for sure at the moment that it has no way to access the information in there. Functionality could be built into the channel boolean if the developers see fit.

I will look into sending a .rpf to Eyeone once my current job is done. The Images are right now around 70MB!
