Ok as of recently I’ve found that when I render through maya with mental ray…that my renders with certain settings are identical and shouldn’t be. For instance, when I render with global Illumination, it’s the same as without it. And I can turn my final gather on or off and get the same result. In this scene I have two spotlights both emmitting photons (although turning photons on and off also makes no difference), and in this scene I’ve turned on ray tracing in the render globals as well as in my lights attributes, and there’s no change in my renders. Does anybody know why this is happening?
P.S. I’d include a picture of the render to assure that there should be a change, however I don’t know how to attach one. Could anybody tell me how to do that as well? And lastly how to get rid of the displayed information of my name and whereabouts on all my posts.
