This is beautiful! I really love everything in this picture. Quick question. I use Maya and i figure 3dmax is very similar in that you have to make an occlusion layer for more realistic shadows and such but I had a similar setup in a scene with lights that same from behind walls and they looked great until i put the occlusion on it cause it blocked them out. Did you have the same problem in 3dmax? Just curious and if you did is there a way to fix it?
