View Full Version : Vue xtream 8 + GI

08-26-2010, 11:01 AM
Hi Guys,

I can't seem to get the GI in LW work with the Vue scene (through the Xtream plug-in). Is there some special setting I don't know of or is this impossible in LW (it does work in XSI).

you need to setup GI or global radiosity in vue's atmosphere settings and volumetric radiosity in LW's render globals/global illumination panel. in any case it is better to fake GI, as rendering out radiosity with vue xstream is very, very slow.

maybe search for various tips in this forum about 'xstream' and also consider to have a look at asileFX's LW9 xstream integration training videos (afaik the only ones existing), i found them very informative and well done and worth the price, if you are going to make some serious work with xstream and don't want to waste days or even weeks for finding out all the complex setup and workflow tricks.

hope this helps
