  2. Render Challenge – Natural Formula Grape Bottle 55 Comments

    I found this 3D render today and I thought it would be perfect for a new Render Challenge. Try to copy the render above EXACTLY and see how close you can get. I love learning this way because it forces you to look at some of the smaller modeling details and it teaches me to try subtle lighting tricks to get a render just right.

    Share Your Results

    Drop links to your renders in the comments below. Let’s see how close we can get. Also, if you get stuck, we can use the comments to ask questions and share techniques. Have Fun!

  4. How To Fix Missing Textures With Light Kit Pro 3 Comments

    In this quick video, I answer a question we have been getting in customer support for Light Kit Pro lately. Many have you have been asking about how to fix missing textures in older scene files where you have used Light Kit Pro. We made a script to fix exactly that and it came with your latest version of Light Kit Pro.

    Check your Light Kit Pro install folder to find the script and use it any time you see a missing texture error for older Light Kit Pro scene files. The script is included in version 2.0 and up. Keep Rendering!
