I downloaded and installed DAZ Studio 4.5

How do I use “Set HDR Candlelight”?

Should it be used in the same way as “Set HDR KHPark”?

I found a tutorial (http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/viewtopic.php?t=173382) that uses “Set HDR KHPark” and that seems to work. However, if I try to substitute “Set HDR Candlelight” for “Set HDR KHPark” then my Genesis figure is rendered as totally black. I was expecting dim light…but I seem to get no light when I use “Set HDR Candlelight”.

How do I know if “Set HDR Candlelight” has been correctly applied?

Steps I use. Load Uber Envro Base, Select the Uber in the Scene tab, Load Set HDR Candle, then go to Set Quality 4x

This is what I get with low render settings.

If you select the light, and look in the Parameters tab, there are loads of options to select.  Increase the Intensity percentage, and play around with the intensity itself.  These are shader lights, and there is a lot of learning involved.

There is also a help icon in the set, which will take you here to find out more : http://www.omnifreaker.com/index.php?title=UberEnvironment2

Thanks for the quick reply. I guess that “candlelight” setting is intended to be very dark. I just tried the “dawn” setting and it is darker than what I expected for “candlelight”, but some features of the Genesis figure are visible.

You might also find my “Learning UE2” thread (in my tutorials link below) useful as it covers a lot of detail about UE2. smile
