So here is another update ( with the door handles :attn: ) and I

have used DOF.


Also I was curious, as you can see in the picture, everything that

is black barely has any shading or specualrity. They are all

assigned to the same material which is a blinn, and I have tried

turning the specularity, eccentricity, and specular roll off to their

max but it doesnt changed anything.

The reflectivity works but I dont want it to be reflective, I just

want it to have a soft light reflection, if you know what I mean.

Any suggestions?

Thanks murambi : ) I'll definitely take a look at that studio lighting tut.

as for the mental ray shader, I have Maya 7 on my computer, but i do have maya 9 on my school computers, its just abit of a pain to keep having to switch back and forth always converting the files so they work in maya 7.
