Hey all,
I have a scene set up with 2 light panels. One is white, one is blue. I like the way they're lighting the subject, but I'd like to eliminate the blue cast from the seamless backdrop. Any way to have the blue panel ignore the seamless? I thought there was a way, but I can't remember, and I'm not finding it here in the forums.

Thanks!

Select the blue panel and then go to Edit > Instance Properties... and see if Disabling/Enabling any of these render options will do the trick for you.

Thanks Kevko. I had tried that. No settings in there to have the glow panel not cast light on a particular object/group. I seem to remember a setting somewhere to do that, but haven't found it. Maybe it was in another 3D program.

Are wanting the object to not receive light or to not cast a shadow?

Could you send the model file to the support email address and also do a rendering and annotate on it what you want to happen? That might help me to better understand what you are want to accomplish. Then I can see if and how it might be possible to do.

I want the light panel to cast light (blue) on the objects in the scene but not on the floor.
