Hi all

Have a customer who takes screen grabs of a finished model, and merges them in photoshop for a visual record of what that model is (See Bracket_03A.jpg Bottom left view).

Using a white background to save on ink for prints.

Some times with the default lighting the reflections wash out the part and detail is lost.

Does anybody have any suggestions for a quick solution?



The customer also uses 'SolidView' as a file viewer.
This has a 'global' lighting solution and is quick to adjust.
Please see Image_01

Hi Rhys

The answer is simple - reduce the reflectivity of the model via the Face Attributes form.

Hi Chris

Yep after posting I looked in the face attributes form and noticed we can change 'diffuse' and 'reflectance' options using the slider bar.

Thanks
