The seam doesn’t appear on any of the promos. I’m wondering if there could be a setting somewhere causing the problem.

I’m wondering that myself. I’m not sure what to try to test that, however.

Shading rate. Turn it down to 0.1, see if that helps. Seams are almost always caused by that being too high. If the textures don’t bleed far enough off the UV map then the background color shows through.

I don’t see a shading rate as an option under surfaces. If it helps, the UV map is Victoria 4.

Note to self; Learn what all the advanced rendering options do. That worked! Thanks. I’m going to edit the new rendering into my first post.

Well I don’t see a seam problem.  Used the lighting that came with her and my shading rate is at .1 so…..
She looks good with one of Jasmin’s hair.

I decided it would be fun to quickly throw together an image of Jasmin, Amy, Jazlyn, and Kimbery using only 3DU stuff. I scaled down the first 3 to 90% (Kimberly shrinks to 80% scale and looked ridiculously smaller), and I thought everything was looking good until I actually rendered the image. Kimberly’s default texture setup (set using the character file that came with the product) has noticeable seams.

EDIT: As pointed out later in this thread, the issue is resolved by lowering the shading rate in the advanced render options. The new version of the image had the shading rate at 0.1

Those characters are so cute.
Its hard to believe they come from the same mesh as Mr.Hyde or The Troll. It’s crazy.

Rendered with Garibaldi Express hair I did for Rapunzel character.  Just cut her to medium length.  That hair looks good on Kimberly.

Obligatory comparison shot. Kim is adorable, and I love the forth-wall breaking shirt (modeled by the lovely young Sadie here). One minor shame is that there’s no top to match the bikini bottoms or vice versa, so it looks a bit mismatched. Still, a splash of colour looks good on her, so I’m not complaining.

Beautiful render, HeraldOfFire. smile  I also want to share how well the materials are transferred to Luxus.  None of them were tweaked for Luxus rendering.

Great render!  I did a quick side by side too after installing last night.  I just didn’t have the time to set up a proper scene and all.  Like I said in my previous post, Kimberly is Sadie’s California cousin!

So, what will Kimberly’s surfer dude boyfriend look like, I wonder?  Will he be Karl?  Kevin?  Kenny?  Come on now, 3DU, you can tell us!  wink

If he’s anything like Kimberly, maybe they’ll have a Facebook competition to decide on a name. I chose Harmony, but I guess Kim was more popular :D

She transfers pretty well, but the hair could probably use a little extra work. For my part when I did Sadie in Luxus I used a velvet/glossy mixture for her hair so that it catches the light better while retaining that lovely sheen. The result was something rather nice and cartoony, despite the otherwise realistic setup.
