Thank you very much.
You need to convert the Diffuse texture from Texture Combine to "Image Map". To do that:

- Click on the texture in the Material Tab
- In the Texture Editor click on the drop-down list called "Texture type" and select Image map

See if that fixes it for the face. If it does, the select all the skin materials, except 1_SkinFace, and do that operation again.
Just out of curiosity, what skin is that?

Thanks. I tried what you ask but I got a plain white face.

Can you show me the Material tab of 1_SkinFace and the texture for Diffuse loaded in the Texture editor?

Thank you for the link.

Thank you. Well, there is no texture at all in the Diffuse channel so that explains the lack of features. I'm afraid that this kind of skin is just made in a way that Reality can't convert it well. You can, of course, manually enter the texture. You will need to click on the Diffuse texture in the material and then select the Kewe08.jpg file. I'm guessing the file name based on your previous images, I don't have the product.

Other skins will react much better.

Cheers.

And this is the original Texture Combine that kept giving me the black:

Thank you for the screenshot. Yes, the original Poser material is a very complex network of nodes that results in a overly complex texture mix. That is because Poser's renderer is biased. If you just use the Keweh08.jpg image in the diffuse channel then it should work pretty well. All, again, is a guess because I don't know the product.

Give it a try, it's just a couple of clicks.
Cheers.

I got it to work.... Thank you so much.... I turned it to image map but on the basic texture maps (not the SSS ones). I think that was the problem. Like you said.. Thanks again.

Your spec has texture combined with multiply. Turn off multiply and just use either color (64) or just image map.
