Illuminating plane
show user profile  arnout
Hi,

First of all I must admit i am a beginner ;)
I want to make a plane that's invisible in render context, but illuminates light.
How do i do this?

Thanks!

Make a plane.

Apply a self illuminating material to it.

Deselect 'visible to camera' in object properties.

Sit back and look chuffed.

Or if you have Vray make a Vray light and select plane as type, tick box for invisible.


Or, don't tick the box and just poke yourself in the eyes, you won't see it either way.
