guys guys guys...slateis a natural element no gloss finish

If it's natural slate then it will definitely have a sheen to it (see attached photos).

thanks for samples, peter .... actually, almost all materials do possess certain level of reflectivity ... there was some discussion a while ago, where roy posted quite useful pdf, made by a lighting manufacturer (i believe) where were discussed reflectivities of white matte paint, rough cconcrete etc... to me it seems worth it to add at least small amount to almost any material

The man is not for turning....:))))

Peter que configuracion minima de brillo necesitan los materiales? seguntu experiencia?

For this type of floor I would suggest trying the following as a starting point:

Intensity - 0.15

Sharpnes - 0.1

Fresnel - 0.7

This type of artifact is not unexpected from small bright sources reflected in a "near-specular" surface.  It is a limitation of the rendering algorithm.  The Path Tracer will probably do a better job with this, although if the light path bounces on the mirror cylinder before striking the source it may consider this a caustic path and exclude it.  Post-processing with PhotoShop or eq. (like you did) is probably your best bet.

"1-  On the Rendering Tab there is a popdown called Destination.  The option is called something like "Local Out of Process".  2-  No, installation will require admin access."

"Yep-- the groundplane in ArStudio should be turned on in that case-- but you will get a rectangle which may need to be sized.  If it's not turning on, that's probably a bug."

"Not to worry. I've just seen that ArStudio has its own version of a ground plane. It just doesn't translate the old nXt one."

"good image and nice montage... the only thing is that the sky is too blue ... a light colour and would make it perfect"

AR Studio ground plane

The ground plane in Accurender Studio appears as a rectangular surface under the object rather than extending to the horizon.See More
