Some notes about the Firefly Renderer:

First of all - please turn off texture filtering when rendering Helena in Firefly Renderer, otherwise you might get some undesireable results.

The following render settings were used in the promo images and they should bring you very good results:

* Cast Shadows - ON or OFF (this depends on your image)
* Texture Filtering - OFF
* Raytracing - ON or OFF (this is also depending on your image, raytracing was used in the promos)
* Raytrace Bounces 4
* Min Shading Rate - 0,00
* Pixel Samples 4 (you may raise or lower this, depending on your system. However, the promos were rendered with pixel samples set to 4 or 5, while 3 is default)
* Max Texture Size - 4096 (lower it for smaller images or images in which you don't show anything close but close up's need a large texture size)
* Max Bucket Size 64 (you can lower this if your computer is not able to handle it well, 32 is a common setting here)
* Smooth Polygons - ON
* Use Displacement Maps - ON or OFF (you don't need it for Helena but other items in your image might use displacement maps) * Just leave the rest the way it is

And some more notes about custom morphs:

Helena's morph was made as a custom morph, which means that you don't need any morph packages for her. Anyway, her morph data was stored in a folder called Morphs which is located in your libraries folder. Please don't move that folder or the custom morph will not work.

This product is also using shaders, so let me say a few words about lights.

Helena's shaders will react strongly to very bright lights so you have to be careful when using very bright global lighting or IBL lights. I don't recommend them anyway when using a character with shaders as it ruins the whole effect a shader is supposed to have and makes the texture appear unnaturally flat and lifeless.

The promos were rendered with the included light sets and they were made especially for the shaders. This means, that they may not look as good when used in other versions of Poser.

There are also some differences between the Poser 5 and Poser 6 shaders - this skin shader will look a little brighter in P6 than in P5 and might also react a little stronger to light.

There are no reflection maps for Helena's eyes - they are using shader settings instead, which will make them look a lot more realistic. But that means that the reflections might not show up under some light conditions. Just adjust the lights a little if that should happen in your render.
