    Hi there,

    I’m hoping this is possible. Is there a reason a PNG image sequence in a luminance channel does not emit light in a GI calculation? Am I doing something wrong?

    Thank you.

    hi justin, thanks for getting back to me. physical renderer.

    i just did a test on a single object and it seemed to work fine – i just can’t see it very much in my scene.

    You’ll need to raise the “Generate GI” value under Illumination in the material editor.
