I think the knowledge base is really an appropriate source but what modeling application you are using and which Thea version you are using please?

It looks that way Majid.

In which case Matt, the only option is to learn Studio 1.5 and then reassess things once Studio V2 is released.

I'm assuming that that the knowledge base is gradually going to phase out V1.5 material, so you might want to go through that now. The same applies to the official videos on YouTube. If you then have questions, this forum is the best place to ask for help. There are still a lot of us who have years of experience working with Studio and will be happy to help.

Matt

Have you had a look at the Thea tutorials on youtube ? The Studio related vids are several years old but still relevant and an important reference:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG5m0z ... H28Z_kL1_Q
https://www.youtube.com/user/TheaRender/videos

Also there are some here still:
https://www.thearender.com/site/index.p ... neral.html

Keep the Studio PDF Manual close to hand along with the other guide docs listed in the link above on lighting, tracing depth etc.

Lastly there's tons of archive info in the forum threads which will cover everything else - just search for it.

I post on the forum with different email address than the one I purchased Thea with.
