Mental Ray FG / IBL
show user profile  Cylon 2
Hi guys, wondering if anyone can help me. Its final gather and Mental Ray again. I'm using the daylight system (max 2014).

I rendered all my fg maps and saved them into a folder, then when I set it to read for the fg maps for my final render it's coming out dark. It looks as though the fg map is only saving information from the sun light and not the skylight.

However if I go into the Global Illumination tab and set the skylight illumination from IBL (instead of from Final Gather) I get a closer looking result.

Any ideas as to why this is happening ? It looks nicer from FG.

Cheers.
