Vray walkthrough, problem including light cache.
show user profile  tommtomm
Hi there guys and girls,
I am having a slight problem and would love to know if anyone had this problem and how you solved it.
I have made a fly through animation and followed this tutorial: http://www.spot3d.com/vray/help/150SP1/tutorials_imap2.htm

Everything is going well, I have stored the LC to file, I have stored the IR to file, and rendering from those files I get a food LC image and a good IR image.... But when I include them both into a final render LC is not included... It renders as if I have no Light cache, but if I make the primary and secondary to Light Cache it renders with a great LC map.

It's a strange question but why is my LC not being include when I make it the secondary bounce.

Have I missed something.

Thanks in advance guys.

Hi there,
I solved it and it is such a silly thing for me to have done.
In case anyone has this problem, and you are following the tutorial above, Do not I repeat do not disable LC as secondary bounce when working out and saving to file the IR map. I thought when I disabled it that it wouldn't matter thinking that they are 2 seporate things, but no if you turn of LC as secondary bounce and reading off file whilst you render every 5 frame, it will not include the LC map in the final render and only use the IR map.

I hope I can help someone with this as I just wasted 2 days scratching my head and pissing off my client lol, I guess you live and learn.
