Define shading properties for mist.
- [Voiceover] The aero simulation is cached out,…we can check in on that, go to the Outliner…and select bifrostAeroProperties1.…Open its attributes, and in the caching section…under Aero Cache and Solid Cache,…we should see it's enabled.…Close the attributes.…We'll go down to the end of the animation,…and wait for a moment for that to update,…it needs to load in the Olympic document…and it also needs to load in the Aero Cache.…Even though the Olympic file is on a hidden layer,…it still needs to be loaded into memory.…
It's not actually driving anything now,…and if you wanted to, you could…turn the reference off in the reference editor.…For now, all I want to do is turn off…these two visible layers.…There are a couple of render flags we need to set…before we do any test renders.…First, select the shape node, open up the bifrost Aero…and select Aero1, which is the shape node,…and go into its attributes, Ctrl+A.…Find that attribute page, AeroShape1.…And under render, set the render quality down to only 0.1.…
There's not going to be much diffuse shading on this object…
