HtoA Arnold Mesh Light doesn't work

Recommended Posts

hey guys.

I'm a little in trouble.

Arnold mesh light doesn't work well though I've tried it in the documentation and the topics here.

Attach hip data.

What is the problem?

Mesh light worked.
Enabled display flags for objects with mesh lights.
However, the display flag was disabled and functioned in the hip data obtained from the forum. Why.

My guess is the mesh light object was included in force objects in Arnold node so it didn't matter if the display flag was on or off..

In your scene file, I placed a new poly sphere down, and linked to your mesh light.  Worked as expected.  In the image below, I just disabled the camera visibility for the light.  When I opened your scene file, the sphere you were using was hidden, which also hides the affect of the mesh light.  Not sure which forum hip files you're referring to.

Hopefully this helps.
