    Default Breaking shadow links not working in Maya 2017


    I've ran into a problem with shadow linking in Maya 2017 using mental ray. I follow these steps: 1) I turn Shadow linking on in the render settings 2) I select the light and object in the scene and break the shadow linking. These are the same steps I followed in Maya 2016 and it worked. But for some reason, it doesn't work in Maya 2017. I updated my Maya but breaking the shadow link is still not working. Any ideas?

    Hi jicabrer88, Does turning off Use Exact Hierarchy get you the behavior you expect? I'm a little confused about what I'm seeing because the behavior between 2016 and 2017 looks similar to me. -Angie
