Hi!!

Is there a method to use a delayed load procedural as a geometry light?
Because it seems that the geometry light mode doesn't work when I use a delayed load shader; It's this a know limitation of the geometry light?

Thank you.

I've had exactly the same problem. I emailed sidefx and they said:

“No, I am sorry, it will not work with delayed load, as lights shaders get loaded prior to geometry.”

so I guess there isn't a way.

Cheers,

Tony

Sorry to revive an old thread.

Has there been any progress in this area? Any way to use Delayed Load Procedural with Volume Lights? Trying to cut down on the IFD file sizes.
