Scene with two suns
show user profile  ACGaner
Hi,

is there any way in 3ds max to make two suns instead of one for an outdoor scene? I can't get it to work. I tried using 2 vray suns as well as the metal ray equivalents but to no avail. I'm not very experienced with 3D software and rendering.

Making 2 vraysuns works fine for me.

For me they are neither both visible (only just one of the two) nor is there a sky. It's always just a white background in the renderings.
What am I doing wrong? :(

If you're not using a vrayphysicalcam you need to set their intensity to something like 0.01.

Okay, so I reduced their intensity way down. I now see sky, this is definitley a step forward. But as soon as I enter a second sun in the picture it only shows me one of them in the rendering. 3ds does not like me today.

You're right, it doesn't work for me either.
I tried grabbing each vraysky in turn in the editor and set them in a composite map, no good (it even gave me a black sun at some point!)
I guess you'll have to render your skys separately, use direct lights for the suns and comp everything.
