I’ve been trying to figure out the sunbeam node, and one thing in particular confuses me.
In the image, for the right-hand window, the house outside is contributing to the effect and casting a shadow…?? I suppose the answer is to just render the outside environment on a separate layer.
But I’m wondering if this kind of thing is expected behavior? And if you’re wondering, there isn’t anything else out of site which is contributing to the shadowing/sunbeam effect.
I JUST noticed something else. It seems as if the sunbeam bleeds through other areas. It’s hard to see, but it’s happening in the lower right side (you can see the seat cushion being affected).
Is there a good way to control the sunbeam node, or an alternative?
