How do I make lightwave not render things behind objects in the foreground when it raytraces? it's giving me ridiculous render times because it keeps doing it for each pass. Any thoughts?

by the way, the image i posted shows the rendered image and the processing of that same image.

Show render in progress will add time to the render. For the other thing I can't remember how but in the manual it tells you how to make it not.

I don't think there was anything in the manual about not rendering background polygons, there was someone who posted a cool trick, put a polygon in front of the camera with 100% or maybe 99.9999% transparency, the renderer will render this poly first, which of course involves...

hey I still have the link
