Lighting/Shadow Problem
show user profile  Justin101
Hey all,

Got any suggestions for fixing the under shadow line?
Dont like the way it goes from light to dark from left to right.
I'm using Max 2011, Vray, Irradiance map for primary bounces and Brute force for secondary bounces.
Any suggestions for what to change or test to get an even shadow line?

I'm guessing you have a wall or something bouncing light off of camera left, which is filling that side of the shadow a bit more than the shadow on the right?

Can you post a photo that shows more of the scene? hard to tell whats going on without seeing more. -

Ditto. Looks pretty natural to me.

If you really hate it, and that is your render, stick some white cards below it to bounce some light back up.
