Default Rendering Particles/ with GIJoe

Hi all, I've been working on my demo reel. The scene is night time and its raining. I used the Simply Maya rain tutorial to learn about particles/emitters etc. Good tutorial. But now I want to render them in a scene. I'm not too sure about rendering dynamics, I know that "hardware render buffer" is used. And I managed to actually render up a targa sequence with basic lighting which I added to the scene. But when I applied the GI_JOE script to the scene, and then attempted to render the sequence there was no change in lighting.

Has anyone had a problem similar to this one, or do I need to turn something on in the attributes so that global illumination can be seen in my final targa sequence?

the hardware render buffer is used to hardware render particles (doh! ) and thus i'm not sure if GI joe will affect the particles. As a general rule hardware rendered particles suck cause they are rendered in open gl and thus look crappy (technical explanation i know!! )

If you want to use the GI_Joe script i think you're gonna have to use software rendered particles (indicated by the "s/w" after the particle type in the type options)

hope this is helpfull
