Paint effects
on Sep 25, 2007 at 5:54:01 am

Hey i have this strange problem-i want to paint stars using the paint effects, iv'e created a sphere made it paintble and applied to it space.mel brush from the visor.
Then iv'e selected the sphere and the brush and started painting the sphere.
The thing is i obviously dont want the sphere to be rendered so i applied it to a layer and toggled off its visibility but once i do that the stars arent being rendered as well but when the sphere is visible they do render-how do i fix that ?

You can turn off 'primary visibility' in the sphere shape nodes' Render Settings section. That way it will stay visible in the scene (and so will the stars), but its geometry won't render.

You could also disconnect it from its shading group; unshaded objects in Maya don't render.
