Doing some radiosity test right now with 1.5, and the speed increase is great...

Go Worley :D

When doing MC radiosity renders in FPrime 1.5 is it normal for the object to cast a shadow even though the cast shadow flag is unchecked in the object properties panel? I don't remember that being the case with 1.02.

The new noise option is great! Finally saving long file names is fixed - this was the biggest complaint I had with FPrime. Also the Surface Editor no longer closes upon starting FPrime. All in all a really nice upgrade, kinda slow in coming but at least it's free and did I mention saving long file names is fixed. Now I just wish it would remember where you last saved a file instead of relying on the Image Editor to set the saving path.

No, you use Unseen by Rays to prevent an object from affecting radiosity.

I would love to have a seperate "unseen by radiosity" flag though, especially in interiors where you get too much bleeding from a bright colored object.
