Hi, I'm late to the Poser 11 party but the recent killing of flash forced my hand. I've just switched form Poser 10 to 11pr and am noticing that with my existing documents the Superfly render rneing doesn't seem to respect the "Dist Start" and "Dist End" parameters for lights, all lights seem to have infiinte reach when using the superfly render engine. Firefly still behaves as expected, can anyone help me understand what I might be missing? Surely the new improved render engine has some way of attenuating the light intensity with distance.

I see now, there's a new light property for attenuation and the default is "constant". I interpreted that to mean linear with distance but it's really constant, changing my light attenuation to linear or inverse square gives me what I needed.
