well what I want to achieve is a way to reduce over all rendertime. If stuff like light color could be taken over in a psd layer this could make things easier. the same is with the settings for the plugin. look at the specular channel: the setting in LW is 120%, the light is at 50% and the plugin has to be at 0.5 so the render output and the psd look almost the same. but what happens if I ramp up the light intensity? there is no envelop button in the psd saver.
here some comparison betwenn the LW renderoutput (left side) and the psd output:
(the first and the fifth row look the same)
that for my question: what do people do if they use this plugin and if they use somthing else, what and how? and still it could be that I am not using the plugin the right way or there can be more done in photoshop.
I am using LW8 and Photoshop 6
