Hi Bill,

Thank you for your reply. My initial settings are like this below:
#include "colors.inc"
background {color rgbt <0, 0, 0, 1> }

#declare MainColor = rgb<1.0,0.0,0.0>;;
  camera {
    angle 45
    location <150.92993637586693,30.07787677021389,97.7056826656392>
    look_at <25,25,25>
  }
  light_source { <101.28273227706191,100.10083875733939,98.7618381976087> color
White shadowless}


I don't know how to intiate the UA setting. Can you please elaborate this?

William
