i'm rendering a scene with clouds which is a bunch of flat planes with images on them. Everything is great except when the planes overlap each other. The clouds in the back get darker when they are behind another plane.

I am using maya 8.5 on an intel mac os 10.4.9 rendering in maya software

thanks

jon

Maybe the planes in the foreground are casting shadows on the planes behind them? Make sure 'Casts Shadows' is unchecked in the Render Stats section of the attribute editor for that object.
