Point light visible behind solid(opaque) objects????
on Jun 19, 2014 at 2:39:51 pm

im working on a space scene and im trying to to have the sun behind the Earth.Ive used a point light as my sun,the only problem im having is that the point light(THE SUN) is still visible in the final render even if i have the earth between the camera and the sun.its like my earth model is a transparent object but im sure its not. Anybody knows whats going on here?, im running Maya 2013 and im using maya render since i cant render a point light in mental ray.

Dont use a point light.

Use a spot and play with occlusion on a object.
