Hey everyone!

Over the last several years I've taught myself Photoshop and more recently discovered a love for 3D artwork. At present I don't get to spend as much time on projects as I'd like - maybe one day I'll even be able to turn a hobby into a career!

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy my gallery - I love comments, so please feel free to leave some :) and thank you so much for all the watches and faves, it means a great deal to me!


M7 specular issues by tigerste
M7 specular issues
As with most of my characters I've started preparing my own Iray shader for M7. I used my V7 shader as a base, just swapping out the textures. However as you can see in the image, only the torso specular map is playing nicely.

There's no need for me to post settings as I know its a problem with the spec maps, even though on face value they look the same in an editor. For some reason, DAZ use 'PBR Metallicity/Roughness' for base mixing instead of 'PBR Specular/Glossiness', which is more appropriate for skin, and this works fine with all other characters (or just using different spec maps on M7).

You can replicate it by loading M7, changing the base mixing mode to 'PBR Specular/Glossiness' and making the 'Glossy Specular' colour lighter. Has anyone else noticed this?
