Notes


  • The position of the plane depends on its transformation in the 3ds Max scene.
  • You can have more than one infinite plane in the scene.
  • The plane is rendered with the material applied to the VRayPlane object.
  • Shadow maps will not include information about the plane object. However, other objects will cast correct shadows on the plane, even with shadow maps.
