Nope, it's just that most people don't understand what the panel is really for and assume that it's a dimming function rather than a color change function which is what it really is.

Ah, lighting is an important factor. I am beginning to lose track of all the MME's out there.
This is a very big help   :D

Yeah, there's a lot of good ones out there, but I stick mainly to a few stalwarts. Don't want to blow up my laptop yet, but the temptation is hard to resist not adding that 'final touch' that slows your PC to the speed of molasses ... I need a new PC, where's Santa in the summer?

Probably in Haiti dodging the IRS and the NSA ... ;)

LOL!!!!!

I taxed my PC this week, and know the limitations when the video crashes.

40 model files maxx at one time.  :D

40 models could be pushing it a bit ... then again it depends on the power of your PC. Mine won't do more than about maybe four models at a time.

I just love to be able to get to about a dozen models - just not going to happen on my antiquated, good only for use as a paper weight, laptop.

Well to be fair, all my MMD stages were build on this machine and my motion development work - so it's done (and still doing) sterling service.

This might be a dumb question... but what is a global blender and how do you add it? o.o I have figured out how to add specific shaders to different parts...but how do you add more than one? Like one on say, the lamp, and also one over the entire scene?

Global blender - that's a term I coined so may not be universally known - but basically its an MME effect that affects the entire scene. Common ones are SSAO and Diffusion. They usually load as an accessory model. You can have multiple blenders loaded at the same time.

Gobal shaders/blenders effect the entire scene, the individual models themselves can have separate effects applied to them and still benefit from the effects of the global effects.

Oh ok. I always forget about the load accessory method. I usually just use the MME menu. Thanks for the answer.
