#461 MC has an issue dealing with bump maps

Luke S

I ran into this a while ago... I'm not sure why I haven't posted it already. My issue looks like this:


Check out the part of the wall that is in shadow. No bump map.

  • This scene is a completely enclosed box.
  • One point light.
  • MC 4 rays.
  • Med AA + soft shadows.

Same view, Rendered with PM:


WallyR was working on his raytracer mods at the time and said that he was able to:

fix this problem. It's literally just a one word change in the code.

So, this has been around:

  • At least since 2.8.x
  • Is still around
  • Is specific to MC type GI

Don't know where it is any more specifically than that.
