RenderMap FinalGather Solution

Post by Manticor » 18 Mar 2015, 14:07

Ok I feel happy and feel like crying at the same time ....

Not sure if this is the case in newer versions of Softimage( as Im still using good ol classic 7.01 ) but I thought I would put this down here just in case someone else is looking for this .

Rendermap works properly with Final Gather if you use EXACT mode ( as it bypasses the cache )... so there is no need to render every view in the render region to build up the final gather cache or do a flythrough and render every 10th frame.

I wish I had known this a long time ago.....
