ORB - Illumination not working as supposed to

Postby Ozymandias on 01/10/2020, 4:01 am


I must be making a mistake somewhere: I am following the VC ORB tutorial step by step, and as far as I can see I have double-checked every entry, yet I still can't reproduce the look the tutorial is achieving:

As soon as I drop in the Illumination map and turn on Illumination, the lights appear *only* on the dark parts of the globe, not everywhere as in the tutorial.
Turning Shadow / Light to 1 turns OFF all light in the shadow parts, so I have NO light left on the globe.

Really confused because I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong, maybe someone has had this problem and knows the solution?


For demonstration purposes I have dropped ONLY the Illumination map into the plugin, but the effect is the same when all maps are there.
