Default The Final Gather points made my renders dark.


I have a mysterious problem with the Final Gather points. I was following the tutorial on baking then Freeze the Final Gather points so it will prevent the flickers and render faster.

I don't know why, but this is the 2nd time, when I baked the Animated Final Gather points, that my huge image look dark after I render it.

Does that happen to anyone?

I used 0 and 2 for the anti-alias
.07 for the Contrast Threshold
Mitchelle filter of 5.
Final Gather Accuracy of 350
Min and Max of the Final Gather radius, based on the distance of the scene.

Help! Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hmm, what sort of light set up are you using?

Also you may want to up the intensity of the Photons.

"Your weapons are no match for ours! People of Mars, surrender!"
"Um, this isn't Mars. This is Earth."
"Earth? Earth-with-nuclear-weapons Earth?"
[long pause] "Friend!!"
