Ambient Occlusion

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have 2 spheres sitting on a plain white surface. One is opaque and the other is a stock glass accurate surface style. Why doesn't the glass sphere cause any ambient occlusion? (they are both the same object)

Something is not right there.  I think you might have shadow casting turned off for that object or it might be a material issue.  When I test it on my system the only time I lose AO is when the object is very transparent.  Yours is not.  Then if I go into my vray AO settings and really bump up the values I get a tremendous amount of AO from my glass.

Hi Andrew

I think it's definitely a material issue - here's the same object with the same surface style

It's the same on all glass, simple and accurate. Not an issue I encountered using V 6
