Besides, what self respecting vampiric priestess would stand in front of a a back lit window when a brooding crypt is available? shock

I find it somewhat liberating not to be encumbered by accuracy.

Is this Genesis or V4? Both can be edited with the right morph sets.

My problem is not from the shape, but from difference between diffuse texture of the face defined (pretty 4k*4k, with shader from the shop) and how it really appear in render (I'm really new to 3d rendering and I'm just using daz studio actually ...).

What are Your Render settings? To get better quality takes three things, good lighting, a good texture on the figure (might need tweaking), and last but very important GOOD render settings. The Default Render setting is not going to give good results.

Okay I see two things, your Max Ray Trace Depth is to low try 2 or 4. And two your shading rate should be .5 or .1 for most renders. The lower the better render wise.

Then on Page 1 for Szark's Render settings.

You should set up two or more cameras, but maybe not for the reason you think (if I'm understanding your question correctly). You only need one camera (Camera 1) for the render and depth of field; the other camera(s) ais/are just used to help you get your Camera 1 set up correctly. You'll want a second camera (Camera 2) off to an angle from the first one, not facing it directly. While you're looking through Camera 2, go to the Cameras tab and select Camera 1. Turn Depth of Field on and you should see something like this: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewreply/66500/ That .view will help you follow the instructions and tutorials that you can find in the first few pages of the thread. Hope this helps!
