Hi im new to the forum and max so bear with me.
I have a scene where i have set up the daylight system, and made an animation of a day passing inside a simple house. So what i basically want to do is to have a render with only the indirect light, the global illumination, and on with only the direct light. Any ideas? It is also fine with another light source that resemples sunlight, if that helps :)
There's also a very good tutorial which comes with 3DS Max (you don't say which version you have - I have Max 2011, and it came with that version) that gives a great introduction to Scene States. If you don't have the Max tutorials you can find them here:
If I remember correctly, the tutorial featured an outdoor scene which had a house in the woods, showing it at various times of day, with full sunlight, dusk, and at night with porch lights on, and showed how to save these states for rendering.
