IBL and shadow catching

It struck me, as we are waiting for shadow catching with IBL in Reality/Lux, that the ability to scale, move and stretch the IBL "sphere" itself is important for the usability of this feature. Of course, I've tried this in DS with Iray. While it does the job, their implementation is very c...

Typically I have both a spot light and a mesh light illuminating the face, and I adjust their intensities in Luxrender. Here's an example of what I'm get...

Reality 4.3.1

I got the message that 4.3.1 was available from within Reality (4.3.0). I'm a bit surprised that there was no email and no announcement on this forum. What are the changes/fixes? Thanks.

Re: Enabling HD morphs for V7

I notice that in DS, the limit for the subd parameter is 2. So, I should remove the limit and set that one to 3? My understanding is that the other parameter (Render subd, which seems set to 3) is for Iray only so it's irrelevant for Reality. Is that right?
