I started a thread thinking there was a problem with a recent purchase, and then eventually figured out the problem was me.
Instead of starting a new thread, I’ll just post this here in case it’s me and not the recent purchase.
I bought the Uzilite D 207, and this is how it looks in the promo: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/uzilite-d-207
It says “RTrace Materials do not work in DAZ Studio”. And I just read in the .duf thread that “Poser lights are WAY too bright” so that may explain why the car looks crappy when rendered in DS.
Fig 1 is how it looks in the viewport before rendering.
Fig 2 is what happens after rendering. It was done using the default lighting and rendering settings.
Fig 3 I added a spotlight to see what would happen by keeping the problem area in the shadows
Fig 4 Problem area shines even in the shadows
I’m using DS3. Any other Daz users buy this car and was able to fix the problem by altering the values in the surface tab?
I was able to change the appearance to just a flat color, but I want it to look like a shiny new car.
