Re: Render parameters seem jammed.

Two things to look at. What render preset are you using and what are your Post-Pro settings? It looks to me like you have the exposure cranked up.
Also to consider, are you using some kind of HDR for the sky lighting?

Re: GPU render?

It really comes down to what the render engine supports. The KT engine doesn't support GPU or XPU. We would love to see that happen as much as the next guy.

Re: Skatter objects will not render

Is you Pro installation activated? Sometimes when Windows undergoes a major update, your license will become unactivated. You can check it by going to the Twilight Render V2 Options window and clicking on 'License'. If your install is activated, it is pretty obvious (it says something like "Congratu...

Open Twilight (on computer 2 ) Options dialog under "Extensions>TwilightV2>Options>Directories" then Browse to and choose any folder you like. Twilight will search that folder for any missin...
