Hi all,
Has anyone ever encountered this. (see the pic) Why does having volume enabled change the render of the ground so much?
Thanks.

I think it's because volumetrics occlude ambient occlusion and radiosity. It's hard to tell what's going on without a scene though.

Thanks for that I tried it radiosity off and it's still happening. I wish I could upload the scene but I can't I'll see if I can get a test scene together.

Ahwt about the Occlusion node? Are you using that at all?

No occlusion. It's a very basic scene I'll have to figure it out when I get time. I also noticed some strangeness with lens flares and the advanced camera. OS I've got more investigating to do.
Thanks.
