I hope Fletch is not exaggerating and you will find new features in SU2KT helpful.
I will try to issue it ca. 30 September.

I'll post something once I think it won't embarress me on these fora - still getting to grips with KT, mostly due to the lack of spare time and current PC power (or lack thereof - should have a new machine in a matter of days though).

But I have installed the new version of KT and quite like it!

have recently discovered KT and I'm still learning how to use all of its settings. So far I have been able to render a few things and love the results. Here is a sample of what I've done so far and if the KT gurus can give me some pointers based on what you see...things I should do, I would appriciate it.

Thank You

It's not that I see myself as a KT guru, but I suggest that you use a HDRI probe for a scene like this... ;)

At the KT Forum you can find many useful tips and tricks related to this... ;)

Take a look at some of these examples...
Electrical-Relay
tb-303 and a glass
dualshock2
new iMac

Hope this helps!?

Hi Danny - great start!

You have 2 out of a possible score of 4. You have a good model, and you've got a great render engine. Now you need to work on lighting and materials. ;) Kim's suggestion to use an HDR is a great suggestion... or you can d/l this perfect light studio all set up for you for lighting an object like this perfectly. Open it in SU, import your model, and place it on the stage, apply a chrome material from the KT's download section metals collection, and render with PM Med+AA or High +AA preset.

Or there's this studio HDRyou can place in KT in the spherical sky slot created by Alex.

keep posting!

Big Mahalo Frederik and Fletch,

As I said I'm still learning how to use this great rendering program so please forgive me for asking a few noobie questions like, where do I find HDRI settings? Their are so many that I'm still finding out how each of them applies to a rendered piece.

Those are great exsamples Frederik I hope someday I can produce masterpieces like that.

I will try those setting Fletch and try that 3LightStageStudio. Hope to be half the renders you guys are, thank you very much for you help and if you have any other things to point out please do so.

Danny

Hi Danny, simply go to http://www.kerkythea.net/joomla and download the globals I made with HDRIs already loaded. then you don't have to worry about any settings ;)
