Render region with final gathering (EXP)

When I want to render region with final gathering turned on, the image sort of appears in negative. Normally I print screen this image to PSP and invert it, which looks a lot better, but then the highlights etc are all negative. What am I doing wrong or missing? Is there a proper way to render things so they appear correct? I've looked around the options many times, and the help files aren't helping.

I only know how to model is XSI so far (using EXP), so am unaware if the answer lies in things to do with shaders etc.

I'm not sure if I can. When I was searching posts before I posted here, someone tried to do as the faq says and use the Browse option to point to a place on the hard drive- which didn't work I think. Someone said it needs to be somewhere on the internet, which I don't have.

Nevertheless, I believe I've found a way around my problem, by doing things in passes.

Also, it may not have been rendering wrong anyway- possibly it is beacuse there is too much colour bleed or something, as when I made the floor bright red, the 'inverted shadow' was red. I guess I need to figure out how to subdue this effect.

Reg. posting a screenshot: If it can be done, without putting it on a website first, let me know and I will try. The image is only 16k or something similar.

under the Submit post and preview post buttons there are a bunch of additional options... click on the "manage attachments" one and upload your pic.
I've never done this, but it looks like it's the way it is done.

Unfortunately I don't have those addtional buttons yet. In fact the FAQ on attachments says that won't happen until I beomce a veteran user and clear 30 posts.

Ordering Foundation is a certainty over the next few weeks, so will hopefully get the training DVD's etc to help me out. If I clear 30 posts before then then I will post the image, as I really need to work this out.

You could always use an MSN group for a temp image host, you only need a net passport ( free ) , I don't think you can embed the image using [img] tags, but you could post the link.

Just an option, theres a guide written by one of the B3ta guys here.
