    Gary, I'm not knowledgeable enough about rendering and lighting in general for 3D, much less these feature in Zbrush, to understand what the above coments refer to. If you get a little time to elaborate it would be much appreciated. For instance, the three steps, are you doing that in the materials pallet and creating a new material that you then use on the fender? Or are you doing that in the texture pallet? Then I would imagine there is some special lighting tricks that have to be done to make it all work. Any light you could shed on this (pun intended) would help me get a direction to head in to start playing around. You may be aware that I tend to play around with vehicles in Zbrush some. This painting aspect would be great to understand better.

    Lightcap I've found isn't too tricky. The tricky part for me is not overdoing anything and getting a washed out look. With enough fine tuning, you can get some pretty snazzy results, but they aren't ever going to be immensely elaborate (I think).

    thnx sure mario for you !sorry for slow reply ! i know your clever enough to figure this out - remember to hold the control key for mask options and replay last stroke - the higher the polys the better the mask

    So does shadowbox but one of the amazing beauties of Z is there are many ways to get to where you need to be.

    *edit*

    I have to say, after playing with both methods, extracting from a plane seems a lot cleaner. Thanks again Gary.
