High(er)-poly radiosity breaks up meshes?


(lycanth) #1

Hiya,

Does anyone know why having a complex-ish scene sometimes causes the radiosity solver to spit out the result as multiple separate meshes? Is it because there’s some upper limit to the number of vertices per mesh?

I haven’t run into too many problems with it yet, but I imagine it might be annoying to properly separate objects afterwards if they’ve been split between two or more meshes.

There is an upper limit for verts per mesh. It used to be 64K, but I cannot remember if that was increased in 2.23 or not… I think it was only the total verts/scene… So the answer is Yes. The mesh vert capacity is the problem.
