So, how do I change the 'gravel' texture?

I don't know. Where's it from? Change the diffuse map to get rid of the gravel. But you're going to be right back at the same place with blowout because of the light with a light color. Do you have a dome on the scene? Something smaller than the Construct?

Try lighting it with EZDome sIBL lights for EZDome here

We will need to take a look at the material room with all the nodes uncollapsed to make an assessment. As mentioned, your lighting could be too harsh for the scene. Lower light intensity and a dome might be the answer.

I actually like the graininess on this one. Was working on getting enterestion eye effects.

There are certainly renders where grain actually adds something and this is certainly one such render. It can add to the atmosphere or, in certain cases add some' dirt to a night or dirty scene.

OK, here are the material settings for the two skating renders. The no reflection one is on the left and the reflective one that has the ugl colors is to the right.

The presence of the bump map seems to make no difference.

I used the ice shaders in the Vincebanga Supperfly Shader set from the RM marketplace for them both. One is on the left and two is on the right.

I am no expert but I doubt much can be gathered from the screen captures you have shown, one help would be to expand the materials to see more details. To do this you would need to click click on the down arrow on the ice panel but posting this expanded material might just breach the usage agreement of the material.

Um, you really shouldn't be posting commercial shaders like that.. that's called copyright violation, unless the creator gave you permission

I was uneasy with it but at least the screen captures so far show limited info. I was trying to find a balance between suggesting that what has been posted is not enough to rectify the problems but anything else would probably be too much. I have used the Vince Banga Superfly Shader sets for a year of more and they are great so I would not want to encourage anything that would impact their use and/or sales.

There is a great deal of information supplied with the sets and they encourage users to experiment but to do this you would need to be able to expand the compound node.

For ice 2, if you look into the compound node, you'll see a colorramp and a noise texture. Those are what is causing the mottled look. To get rid of it completely, delete those and adjust the fac on the mix closure they were connected to so that the ice looks like how you want. If you don't mind a little mottle, adjust the colors so they are closer together. Darker colors make it more opaque, lighter more transparent.

A couple of attempts at using the scatter volume node to create lighting effects after many hours of frustrating tweaking. Curious if anyone has mastered this node and if there were any tutorials on the subject?

ironsoul, that 2nd image is especially nice!

Don't know if it's still there, but Bagginsbill did a good tutorial on adding atmosphere to Superfly on the SM Poser forum. It is searchable.

Here's one, though not the one I spoke of above: https://forum.smithmicro.com/topic/913/atmosphere-in-superfly

V4 in the old Mediterranean Patio from DAZ. Scene is so old it was using gradient bump- now converted to Physical Surface. Lighting is single infinite and skydome.

Looks great ypvs. Well, except for the boob poke through and the shoe in the stones. :-)

The bump on the walls, bricks and stones is really good. And I love the lighting.

A WIP for a project I'm trying to get finished, featuring a tomb and a lady who will need no introduction. The hair needs a movement morph and the jewellery needs a colour boost, as well as the poke thru at the shin.

Having to remove alt diffuse and alt specular I find a real pain

Great shot! You might try a wide screen aspect ratio with a large FOV setting and ad in DOF blur to make it feel larger.

it's pretty simple. I don't do any calculations just eyeball it with a couple of rules in mind. The larger the camera focal equals a larger (longer) camera lens in the real world. a smaller lens would be used to get up close and personal with your subject. The camera is physically closer, the focus area is smaller so use a smaller fstop number on the camera controls. just make sure it's large enough to not make the figure look miniature. In your shot here you want a large lens and have the camera set far away and use slightly larger fstop to widen out the area that's in focus otherwise the scene will look like a miniature again. Here is an example where I have the camera pretty close to the subject and the focal set smallish (probably around 50mm) and the fstop just enogh to get her into focus but blur out the back side of the pool prop.

You can start off with increasing the number of pixel samples. The more pixels, the cleaner the render becomes. This will be at the expense of longer rendering.

If you remove the background construct and replace it with EZDome or BaginsBill's Envirosphere and use a low res jpg on it for lighting that will cut down on noise as well. Inspired_Art posted at 4:05PM Fri, 03 April 2020 - #4385285

@Hornet: Poser users like to show their work. What I mean by this is that they like to show off the background props when they've spent time setting them up. That's fine except it distracts from the main "focus" of the image. Focus is what you should be using in this image to separate the figure from the background. In Superfly it really doesn't add any render time to check the DOF box and set the camera focus. Even if this is just a background image or the back of the Envirosphere get into the habit of setting up your focus and rendering with DOF on.

I agree with ghostship2, using DoF selectively will add more interest and focus on the scene. The other thing that bothers me is the lack of life in the eyes, there are no highlights to spark interest. A small light source can bring out the sparkles.

Here is an example with a room prop. DOF set so the room is blurred. This image also shows off my other trick for getting life into the eyes. Turn the figure's head away from the camera and then point the eyes back at it so they are looking at you. BedroomSmall.jpg
