Additional Details

  • In order to get a nice, shiny and white LAMH fur, you may want to fiddle with the Surface Shaders for the LAMH preset. I found that the following settings provide the best look:
    • 1) In Studio, select the 'Polar Bear_Grp_0_RMan_body' object
    • 2) goto the Surfaces panel and set the following properties on the body 'surface':
      • - Diffuse Coefficient: 1.00
      • - Clump dark strength: 0.30
    • 3) Use a UE2 environment light with the following settings:
      • - Intensity: 70.0%
      • - Environment Mode: Occlusion w/Directional Shadows
      • - Occlusion Strength: 70%
    • 4) Optionally, add 1 Distant Light with raytraced shadows (or 2 according to the desired result) to provide more light cover
  • The LAMH clumped fur presets take longer to render than the smooth fur preset, but are probably the most suitable for the polar bear.
  • If using a .duf character preset, it's best practice to load it as first item in the scene, and then add the other objects.
  • LAMH files (.lmh extension) are provided as well, so each user has the option to load the .lmh file, or the .duf preset.
