Render Issue!
show user profile  kayuna

I'm working with 3d manips of the game World of Warcraft, though for some reason when I render the new shoulder designs from the newest expansions they turn out different from what they look in Max.

I will attach pictures in links to illustrate. Hope you know what the problem is! I'm confused :<

Could it be the gamma settings in your preferences?

I'd first test out the material by taking the specularity down to 0, self illumination up to 100 and doing a render with no lights. make sure the textures are looking fine before continuing.

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

I assume all these are applied directly to the skin maps? Or? I dun get why they turn out like that

Tried the specularity and stuff, and I also tried rendering the shoulders with other maps, at those
tries the skin looks normal so I suppose its something with the tga file or something.. Not sure what
cause it to look like that, it looks fine both in studio max and in a basic photo opening program.

What does it look like without your self-illum map applied?

"I flew over Egypt once"

On the Diffuse Color, in the Bitmap Parameters section, under the Alpha Source section, try selecting None (Opaque).
