I am currently in the midst of rendering an aeriel 360 degree animation of my project and keep running into a problem. When rendered there appears to be the shadow of a large circle cast upon the project at three different loactions in animation. The lights set up is one distant sun casting shadows with three distant sub lights casting no shadows. Wondering if anyone has run into this situation before and how can one fix it?

This is a quote from Zweb on how to fix this..

"This is caused by the Minimum Ray contribution in your Raytrace Options. Open the RenderZone Options, click the Options button at the top of the window, and set Minimum Ray Contribution to 1 or 2. This should make this circle disappear."

Hope this helps,

Des

Des,

Thanx a tonne for that response. Reducing the minimum ray contribution worked perfectly. No more circles!!
