photons using mental ray
on May 11, 2007 at 1:56:31 pm

Hello,

I am starting learning mental ray. The first problem I have is when rendering with global illumination I see the circles of the photons.

Could you please tell me what are the values to adjust in order to blend all those circles?

Thanks a lot,
Hopkins

Well that's a bit tricky. there are no set numbers. You'll have to play a bit. If you see the photons there but they look like dots or circles, first decide if you have enough. If you do, fine. If not add more--realize that when using global illumination it is quite regular to have LOTS. Then increase radius until the circles start to overlap and blend; the splotchiness should start to go away. You can and should increase accuracy as you go as well, but that will only solve how accurate a given area's sampling will be.

Hope that helped,

ACC
