    Here is my start to use it. Pretty horrible. Anyone have a nice explination to it all? I cant even get flakes to become visible no matter what I do.

    Pretty much any advice would be awesome.

    Not only that but your antialiasing settings have to be improved as well: the speckles will seldom resolve in the resolution shared here.

    This should help on the rendering end.

    Ive had a look at that one before, but I cant freaking see what hes doing the video quality is too bad :P Sometimes he doesnt explain what numbers he types in etc which is pretty essential.

    Ill just survive through it I guess thanks! =)

    Nice idea!

    But the LALWUG should learn how to upload videos to YT - ALL of them are in awful unusable quality

    Either lots more detail or lots less. Either model more of the backdrop, or make it a studio shot with an infinity wall. Chuck in some high contrast objects to reflect off the car (like a highly luminous polygon).

    Also it almost seems like you have three different perspectives arguing with each other in the picture. The car is one, the building another, and the background (being a photo) is completely different again. The way the tiled floor cuts off on a strange angle at the back is a bit strange, too.

    Try to get all the backdrop elements to blend a bit more, then work on the positioning of the car. Try some different camera zoom levels etc..

    The car model is pretty good, though.

    I did some tweaks.

    Looks alot better, but im thinking of moving the car entirely to a new scene later. I will try to add some curtain stuff in the window to put more focus on the car.
