Lighting Problem
show user profile  Justin101
Hey all,

In 3ds Max with Vray, Im doing night shots of houses.
I have many lights in the scene (internal vray lights, wall lights
and porch downlights. Sometimes when I do test renders and even
when rendering out the final hi-resolution version, the porch spotlight
just turns off. All other lights work fine but sometimes the spotlight just
randomly deactivates.

Any ideas as to what may be causing this and how to fix it?
It's bloody annoying. Especially when it takes upto 3 hours to render
the hi-resolution version.

Still having this problem.
Especially during low-res test renders.

Sorry - I've not ignored this, I just haven't ever had that problem before.

All I can suggest is checking some random things that might be causing it. e.g. frozen/hidden geometry that is still renderable and blocking the light etc.
