Default Little lgreen spot in my rendering

It is very weird. I have made this scene where i have put up some white Plans to make a white background.

When i render out the image i get, in the middle of the screen, a little green anyoing spot, and i can't seem to figure out how to get rid of it!

Any ideas??

Jeez, that IS odd. If you don't need that background plane for anything (reflections or shadows), why not change your render global settings so that the default BG color is white? Keep your bottom "floor-plane" to catch your reflections and such...see if that doesn't help.

Hi jsisimpson

Thanx for ur reply :-)

I will give it a try. I have only tried to make to change background color in the camera, and that does not work because it changes the way the light reflects the object and the shadows.

Default little green spots in rendering

I have noticed the same thing on a few of my maya renders, it seems to occur when you use translucency on materials along with standard maya area lights, i noticed that reducing the translucency attribute on materials fixed the problem but means i could'nt have nice physical lighting with translucent objects. this may be a rendering artifact from some other issue but i'd try turning off any translucency on shaders first and also try using spots instead of area lights and see if it fixes the problem!

Hope this may be of some use, alias were ment to be addressing this in maya 5.0 but i think the same things seems to happen, try rendering in mental ray and see if it does the same thing.

Regards,

Sam
