    I've scoured the forums here (Amazing work on everyone's part btw, very informative) and just want to make sure I'm using the right template before I start painting for my eventual 3D render of a camaro. The template I have I got from bigevilracing.com, and it's labeled as the DMR mod template for the camaro. This the right one?
    Also, I was curious if the free program "Blender" is capable of rendering the DMR scheme like you all do? I eventually want to get a hold of the car model and try it myself (Camaro and eventually Chevy SS Gen6). Any help would be appreciated :) Below is the car I wanna test it on first. Not sure if I uploaded the image right though...

    So there are multiple parts to this, let me break it down to get a better understanding from you.

    1: You are curious if you are using the right template, correct?
    • You say the one you downloaded is from BER, for the DMR mod, yes?
    • What mod are you attempting to paint for? It was not specified in the question.
    2: Unless Blender (I haven't used it in a while) has a plugin that allows you to import or open .MAX scenes, then no.
    • If you have a .3ds format of the model (the car) from the scene, you might be able to build your own scene depending on your knowledge of Blender, mapping in Blender, and building scenes in Blender.

    If I missed anything let me know, I am just trying to get a better understanding of what you are looking for. :)

    Best of luck!

    1. Yes, the mod is from BER for the DMRNXS2016 mod.
    2. Honestly, the Blender part is a ways off. I may just end up requesting a render for the time being before taking on the learning curve of modeling (no experience at all).

    Still new to this whole idea of having a car rendered. Did the image post right? My current internet connection is a strict one :)

    Sounds great. Thanks for the help. I'm surprised how well the iRacing templates line up with the NR2003 templates. May not be as hard as I thought :)

    While I do appreciate the help, I have discovered that it won't be anywhere near as easy as I thought to duplicate the paint onto a NR2003 template. I'm gonna have to stick to the iRacing screenshots until they decide to let us have the models for the cars (probably won't happen). Start a petition!
