Light not passing through translucent material?
this is a problem I have. The object itself is lit (it's a lampshade, with a point light inside) but no light hits the objects outside. I've tried the mia material and a normal blinn, to the same efffect. I'm using GI and FG.... I've tweaked the raytrace depth, photon trace depth and all else I can think off.
I'll post an image up tomorrow... but for just now does anyone know what is going on here? Surely this must be a common use of a material, to have light passing through it and illuminating objects on the other side (lampshades, windows etc).
