Help ID 6029
Indirect Illumination: GI/Caustics render mode active.
This mode reads the GI from file only and does not generate GI on render!
This mode is used for Static scenes only!
A static scene includes NO animated lights, NO animated objects and NO animated Textures!
The Camera is the only moving part.
Note: this mode reads Photons from file only and does NOT generate on render.
To use that mode you need to bake the Photon map to file first
-set frame range to 0-0
-assign save path for Photon map (...)
-hit "Generate Photon Map file Now"
-wait until the map is calculated
When completed, reset render settings!
Make sure you have "read/write file" active, when you press "send to manager".
If your scene is NOT static, disable Photon map: "read/write file" and run Smart Check again.
