Hi

What is in your view the most effective way to light an interior (light comimg from outside) with sheer curtains in the windows?

They affect the lighting quite a bit (I use the sheer curtain Corona material) and asd greatly to the render time.

I have experimented with selecting the curtain mesh and deselecting "cast shadows" in the object properties.
Or should I render the scene without curtains then the curtains on their own and do some Post?

Also, should the mesh be an actual mesh with volume or just a one-sided plane?

Many thanks
