show user profile  kulubakka
hi there, im having a problem with the sunlight system that im using in a scene. i have a box with no holes and whenever i render from the inside of the box, there is light inside the box. why is this occuring when there are no holes in the the box for the light to come through? the sunlight is outside the box by the way. please help if you can. thank you :)

Is the box a cube with the faces flipped? If so, you need to know that backfaces don't block light.
Add a shell modifier to the box.
