I have just done some tests and I'm getting some weird bright fringingat surface boundaries (land>sky, object>sky)Verry odd.Yeah It works I had pushed the background colour up to a light grey
Quote from: René on November 20, 2018, 08:34:42 amThe sun shining through the clouds is partly due to sun glow amount and power. You can set those values lower or switch them off completely. Probably you will need stronger GI surface details to compensate for the lack of contrast.
