Stop image plane being visible to final gather

For some reason the image plane in maya is visible to final gather. I don't know why maya would think I wanted this, but there we are.

Does anyone know how to make it invisible to final gather. I'v looked in render stats but I can't see anything.

not sure why its showing up, but you can turn off the image plane, calculate the final gather map, turn off rebuild, then turn the image plane back on and render.

just to add... Imageplanes are also seen by the AO aov pass. so be sure to disable them before rendering.

Have you tried adding miFinalGatherHide attribute?

addAttr -ln "miFinalGatherHide" -at bool imagePlaneName;

Thanks guys.

I haven't tried any of those solutions yet. Maya has p****** me off so much I'm working on other stuff until I really have to return to it.
