I downloaded a helmet from 3DWarehouse, converted in 3DX (only enabled front faces - do I need to save back faces too?), brought into CC3 and reduced number of polys, tweaked the colors/textures in iClone, and finally applied to character.  Looks OK, except light shines through the brim onto his forehead:

When I turn off the key light (only rim and some IBL), the offending highlight disappears.  The helmet has no transparency, no self-illumination, etc.  Any ideas?  Thanks...

Try adjusting the shadow Bias (under Visual > Shadow Map) to 0 or a value close to it. This has worked in the past.
