I never see nothing like this.

I thought that reflect maps are gray scale.

Ambient maps are for sss so when you setup your gradients for your texture this will control just how much goes through the ears,nose etc
None of these plugins should be used for sss on human skin,only realy way to do it is using lightwave gradients and texture map
But im not sure just how this would work in lightwave yet,these textures were done for Maya character.
I know Maya has alot more shader tools then lightwave right now,but there is way for everything.
