For some reason i can’t load my blend files for you to see. I use to be able to do it, now I get a error every time I try. I enclosed a pic though of a plank though of the issue I am having. I used an hdr image for environment that was 10k. I used default settings from crazy-bump for my normal maps, specular, occlusion and displacement. I also subdivide 10 times then use the displacement so my geometry is workable. any tutorials you guys may know, so I can get a photo-realistic render? I have used Andrews Price realistic texture and that is what I am using and I am getting this result with crazy bump default settings and a render of 1200 samples. [ATTACH=CONFIG]315462[/ATTACH]
should I then learn to composite using color correction and RGB curves?
