VrayFur and front lighting

Hey guys, me again

Have a question about VrayFur now... In the shot I am working on now, I have a camera dolly shot towards a beautiful red tree. Around it I got some nice grass and the Sun is shining right next to the tree in the direct of the camera.

Now if I have just a textured plane in there I have the shadows that I want. But once I turn on the VrayFur it looks completely different and the shadows are still slightly there but not quite as I would like them to be.

I then tried putting the sun light behind the camera and there it was as I actually want it to be, just the shadows going in the wrong direction.

Is there an issue with VrayFur and light coming from in front of the camera? And if yes... how can I fix it? Help please

Thank you very much already

Hi jay,

as said in forum, best show an image so we can help you. vray fur has no known issue in render, so shoudl render fine.having light from same direction as the camera is normaly not an good idea. not in photography and also not render, as you see no shadow sand shapes then.

for grass you can also use very nice vray proxy by the way, is like real grass then and most real,and takes almost no ram.
