I am having an issue with a current scene I've been working on. I am using the maya physical sun and sky already but when I try to create any kind of plant object via the Vue plugin for maya, it automatically adds a sun which is supposed to mimic the physical sun and sky of maya. However when I do a render, the light angle and look is completely different from what I originally had. If I delete the sun Vue created, then I get no lighting from the physical sun and sky. Why?
Another issue I'm having is how to create an ecosystem on my plane that I created using maya? It seems you add the ecosystem to the Vue material being used on the ground plan, but if I have a maya material with a texture, I can't add an ecosystem to it? If not, do I have to use a Vue material and if so how do I add a Vue material to a maya object via the Vue plugin?
Thanks for any help!
