Is there a faster way to render shit in DAZ than Iray? 3Delight is fucking trash and so is my computer.
>>586886I've just been toying with render settings. Lower res, lower samples. Touch up in photoshop.What video card have you got?Things still take a while on my desktop w/ 980
>>586887R9 280x, aka not NVidia so I can't use it for Iray. My CPU is some piece of shit from 2011.How long did the OP pic take you to render? Just curious.
>>586890About five minutes. Not many items in the scene, background is just HDRi. I also cancelled it at like 50%
>>586891God damn. That thing would take me unironically 2+ hours to render, so you understand my plight.
I've been toying around with a waterpark scene using assets made for poser. I've applied the iray uber base to it all and replaced the water with an iray texture from JG. I imagine the are equivilent improvements I can do to the other parts of the scene. Though what's bohering me the most is the lighting. It's currently set mostly to default from a beach scene HDRi. If i lower the exposure, things get washed out. If I increase dome brightness, the sky no longer has detail.Any suggestions?I feel like applying the uber shader to the geometry should have assisted with light bounce, or is that a seperate setting I need to tweak on per surface basis?
>>586883Question here : why all DAZ render looks like cheap 3D shit ?No seriously
>>586894> what is gamma
>>586895Lighting requires work and knowledge and there's no slider for "smarter user"
>>586896>>586898Yeah, I guess I'll have to read through some lighting basics. Any suggestions?
>>586886Use the scene optimizer, it's not the greatest but it will kinda help
Cash or Trash?
>wait 13 minutes through dforce simulation.Well, I don't think that's how skirts work.
>>586904>13 minutes>pokethroughhahahahahahahahahahaTHIS was the OptiTex/Poser killer we were all waiting for?
>>586904>Not using a proxy mesh for simulation
>>586938I simply followed the instructions from their intro video on the forums.
>>586919Well it does beat optitex in accepting morphs so that daz can't nickel and dime people by coming up with resizes of the same piece of clothing
>>586942> can't be applied to existing clothing> no comment on what developers will have to do to make dynamic clothingThe only difference here is that DAZ plans to fuck the developers directly without a middleman
>>586883Daz is finally getting dynamics and one of the first things someone experimented with was using it to make boobies jiggle.
>>586962only 8 years after Smith Micro did it, did nvidia have to hold their dick here too
Introducing the new Fuccboi 8
> look we'll fucking PAY you to buy Memetoria 8
>>587012The problem with Victoria 8 is timing. It's a good model, and if they had waited another year about bringing it out it would have done really well commercially. It was just too soon on the heels of Victoria 7 / Genesis 3.Of course, DAZ couldn't afford to wait because of their cash flow issues.
>>587012Dazbro from a previous thread gave me $200 in store credit for some input and suggestions.
>>587033Was a bunch of threads ago. Before these were archived. He pretty much just asked for input, then my webpage or forum name.
>>586895Most people have no knowledge of how to do proper lighting so they just use either the default headlight or an HDRI map.
>>586895>>587037HDRi usually end up looking better than default but that's still not saying much.
Can't you fags just Zbrush or something
>>587041It's very commonly used with Daz studio.
>>587041>you fags, i'm a serious 3d artist>memebrushaahahahahahaahahahahahahahaha
>>587046You can fuck around in Zbrush and it will produce better results than this sims-looking motherfuckers
>>587049If you have the skills for it absolutely, but I think Daz is more for people without that skillset that more want to just make artificial scenes for porn or products, maybe a quick human to demo clothing or armor.However Daz content creators typically do have that skillset and sculpt all the things for people to use.I guess at some point a Daz user will want to make a new thing and then they'll look into learning Zbrush or something but they'll need to come to a situation where they want more than what they can get, and it happens enough for it to be a problem they want to solve.If you want to encourage Daz users to learn Zbrush or Mudbox or Max or Blender or something you could describe the feeling of accomplishment and control that comes with making your own morphs for Daz, just going in and actually moving the features exactly how you want without digging through 20 kilometers of sliders. For faces, bodies, and general fetish-related geometry like, I don't know, fuckable nipples and Klingon wrinkles.Or are you just frustrated with Daz conceptually?
>>587049>You can fuck around in Zbrush and it will produce better results than this sims-looking motherfuckershttps://xmrsmoothx.tumblr.com/archiveYou were saying
>>587055How will we zFags ever recover..
>>587055Is that the artist that was even too shitty for /aco/?
>>587063Artist is really a loose enough term with the shit some people pump out and gate paid for. Not to mention the literal turds and used tampons in galleries.
>>587064Not unless you don't have any standards.
>>586960>can't be applied to existing clothingYes it can
>>587071I stand corrected.

I already dropped that shit to bare minimum and it's still ridiculous. I guess I have to stick to hdr maps to fake environments. not putting up with that shit.It's kinda ridiculous that amateur video games have realtime PBR with smooth shadows while you still have to put up with this crap in Daz
>>587368No, you make tasteful renders and so do I but the nitwits screaming for FREE FREE FREE even after the program and the figures were given to them are about 90% likely to think they have a future on Patreon making goblin renders.
Does Daz still claim their encrypted cloud content is uncrackable?

Hey fellas, have any of you got experience with importing animation to DAZ from maya? I can export figure with the rig just fine, but after I manipulate the joints and save it as fbx (2014-15) through maya, in daz the joints are all scaled up and shit, webm related. However the same is not the case when using motion builder and fbx. When importing animation saved through MB, the fbx comes in just fine in DAZ. Is this just some retarded maya quirk? Is there a way to fix this? Thought maybe it was fbx exporter's scale format, but ticking off the box didn't help.Webm is exported animation from MB, imported to maya and exported from it into fbx again, and then imported back to DAZ
Anyone know what hair this is on the female character?
>>587712That is awesome, totally not creepy.
>>587287>explain dforce thenCloth simulation has been available for YEARS in daz and dforce is just slightly warmed up shit like most of Daz currently.There hasn't been anything groundbreaking or at least interesting happening at Daz since the introduction of iRay years ago.
does that dforce shit just make the cloth fall over the body like the usual potato bag or is it this time even possible to simulate TIGHT clothes that develop creases at bumps and stuff?I want horizontal stretch folds in the clothes. Gravity only creases and loose clothes got boring.did anyone of you look into this yet?
>>587712You just gotta adjust the bones.click your model, then go to Tools/Joint Editornow right click your model and go to Edit/Adjust rig to shape, experiment with that and see if it works. Or go the old fashion way and adjust the bones manually.
>>587770Daz was limited in what they could do as far as dynamics go because their agreement with Optikex meant they weren't allowed to develop their own dynamics system until 2017.
>>587287Daz bought the physics plugin simtenero was working on last year
>>587870Thank you for the input, it didn't work adjusting the bones but it made me think of something else! When I import fbx from maya it comes in already screwed up, so when I click on adjust rig to shape it's not doing anything. But after your suggestion I saved the screwed up animation as pose preset, then I applied it to normal genesis 3 in hopes to adjust the bones on that, but instead I get webm. Which is a better situation of course, I just have to adjust the figure's node in the scene, but I'll still need to see if this method is more or less consistent to get predictable results going through all this trouble or if it's easier to go with native daz studio animation tools. Thanks again
>>587875Disregard this, not a solution.Doing this with exported maya animation (previous one is a MotionBuilder animation saved through maya) fucked the facial joints now, adjusting them didn't help. And I did try to both unlock rotations/nods and leave them locked, like I forgot to do with previous test, but no luck. Unlocking rotations/nodes actually led to the gen3 to become fully fucked up like original preset that I saved.
>>587546it's not like shutting down every pirate site gonna do much.Do they think the majority of the people pirating it would actually start buying their overpriced stuff if they couldn't download?
>>588096If I had bought everything I pirated, I would be out like $5000. I still buy stuff from Daz and Renderosity btw, but only if it's something I really like, like certain character creators I want to encourage because they're not as generic as the rest.
>>587463It's like Daz's version of Mrs. Mooth.
>>587465Those tusks are just clipping through the lips, they should be deforming the flesh.
>>586883Haven't used DAZ in years, can you finally export High-Poly models in fbx or anything that is not OBJ and has an armature? Or is it still impossible to export high-poly with armature and poses?
>>588208Dunno about poses, but you can export high poly models via .dae format, it exports the armature too, the only problem is that it exports without textures so you have to apply them yourself
>>586894Change the exposure, like when you use a real camera.
Bought skin builder pro 3 awhile back to create custom skins to mess with until I realize that the stupid shit doesn't come with a genital texture skin. Found out that the work around is to use Cayman's Torso UV for G3F which just basically copies the torso texture on the genitals. It works great then iray shit happens.Here's the fucking problem. If you render it on iray, the fucking seams appear, no, the genitals acts as if its separate and isn't affectred by light. Tried the shaders, diffusion, etc.. parameters and it doesn't resolve this shit. Either it goes too dark or too light.
>>588438Get one of the vag add-ons, they have material copy scripts that do it for you.
>>588439got a particular vendor or link man? shit's been bugging me for days.
>>588440I prefer 3feetwolf's one: https://www.renderotica.com/store/cat/286_Female-Genitalia/sku/57733_New-Gens-For-Victoria-8I think it looks better. Meipe's one plays better with other add-ons though: https://www.renderotica.com/store/sku/57311_Golden-Palace-For-Genesis-8-FemaleAlso there's a G3/V7 version of New Gens but not of Golden Palace, afaik.
>>588438SB3 DOES handle genitals (but only the default Daz3D ones that come in the pro bundles)Assuming you have that, apply it to your figure, then select the figure and use SB3 as you normally would, when you do the preset making there's a genital script there on the screen.
>>588443Oh shit! Forgot that renderotica existed. Thanks man!
>>586894Studio is absolute trash in that regard.It always frustrates me to no end that you CAN'T set brightness of the scene and the HDR map independently. In Studio, the HDR map is just meant to be used as ambient light source and not also as background, which is totally idiotic. A lot of good maps would work perfectly for both at the same time but in Studio either is the scene well lit but then the details of the map washed out or the map has details but then the scene is too dark. Cranking up the gamma only helps a bit but also affects the HDR map of course, and making things look washed out.The only solution probably would be to use the Iray canvas shit and later compose the map and the scene in PS. Still awkward and fucking unnecessary if there was just ONE FUCKING SLIDER to adjust the brightness of the map WITHOUT changing its actual light impact on the scene.
>>588445i think there's non for the actual gen anatomy in the builder, anon.
does any of you fine gentlemen have a script that converts V4 poses to Genesis2?
>>588450that's for hair, if you're using an actual vag it overlaps on the torso so you'd have to alter the genital mat file to add hair.Now click on UTILITIES tab and look at Save Skin and Materials Presetsthe 2nd create button is for the default Daz3d genitals (but as I said before it MUST be on the figure before launching SB3)
Why doesn't Daz just license a graphics engine or something so they can get usable physics in their program? There's free ones that would work well enough.
>>588438Just make the skins in Photoshop with a skin brush set. Stop complaining about things when you just don't know how to use them ha.
>>588449Do any other apps do that? Maybe it's some kind of engine limitation.I guess I could just keep the background invisible and do a seperate render without any objects in scene then combine in photoshop. Shouldn't take long but feels like something that definitely should be automated.
>>588503>Do any other apps do that? Maybe it's some kind of engine limitation.Iray supports compositing. It probably wouldn't be that much of a big deal to make it possible to do some rough editing on the respective canvas layers INSIDE Studio, like gamma or levels adjusting but I guess we can be glad that there's any development at all and good features like this would be pure luxury.
>>588451Not possible. Get the G2 versions of the poses.
Just recently started using Daz, how can i make lighting more bright when i add interiors/propsI have Lantios Lights, but it seems like that no matter what lighting i add to either the camera or just default adding, the lighting stays the same.Pic is one of my first renders ever, please rate, am i doing any rookie mistakes? Tried to follow several guides on youtube and get the lighting right
>>588569you are going to make a killing off patreon
>>588571nice try, now please tell what i'm doing wrong, the lighting looks bland and makes her skin darker than it should
>>588569>>588573Always be sure you are rendering from a camera (highlighted or active window) also make sure headlamp is turned off. As far as lighting. I hate to say it because I hated to hear it, look up three point lighting basics. Photography books help a lot.Or be lazy and hope just a HDRI makes up for it but then you end up with problems like >>586894
>>587546jeez im a filthy thief myself but i would never have the balls to pretend im robin hood. At the same time i dont see the point of buying your product when i only make bad smut for myself.
Meet the all new Cayley Bundle for Genesis 8 Female(s)
>>588726Another retarded-looking Daz tween
>>587273most dazfags are zfags too.just sayin'
>>587368you're not the only one, but unless you're making comics or something worth looking at like animations there's already hella middle aged people using daz for "tasteful renders"
>>587364FUCK OFF MIRO
>>587712>Taylor Swift>even got her dance movesNoice.
>Betty for Genesis 8 FemaleThey really just let anything on the store at this point.
>>588866Pedoware must sell really well. They've released a few of those recently.
>>588909thats more like anorexiaware. josie is pedoware
Dforce is actually pretty cool.I only wish I knew how to animate so I could use it to its full potential.
>>587712Not an expert on it, just tried dabbling in it, but as I understand it, it's more of Daz being fucking retarded when importing bones (even though said bones originated from a Daz figure)I tried to do something similar with Daz -> Blender -> Daz using a script but reimporting back into Daz messes everything up. The bones even flat out disappear. I was told that there was a way to get Daz to recognize the bones but I kinda gave up since it got so ridiculous.
>>588569Minor detail, anon, but you can try using the FitFigure morph (iirc, that's what it's called) to fix the center of the breasts.The morph in question helps make it so fabric looks a bit more realistic on the model instead of just sticking to her chest (as seen in your pic) Hope I'm not too nittpicky, just something I noticed after fucking around in Daz for a while
>>589011Thanks for looking into it. I kinda gave up on trying to figure this shit myself and I don't want to go through trouble of retargeting rig in Motion Builder and learning it enough to be able to comfortably animate the daz shit. I'll try out doing animation inside DAZ, though it's pretty annoying and the figure is lagging even in solid shaded like here >>587875. Hell, it even lags if I use bounding box.
Is there a way to make posing more like TK17? I'm having a hard time getting used to this posing system. It seems pretty awful. The IK rig is just weird.
>>589051I just kinda gave up with animating in Daz. The IK rig is fucking retarded, the system they use for animation is retarded and making changes is next to impossible. I'm considering just using everything in Maya instead (even though that would mean giving up iray I guess.>>589075The IK rig is just fucking retarded. Even the pin system is janky as fuck. I recommend just getting some pre-made poses and adjusting from there
>>589089Oh man I was thinking about getting everything in Maya and try rendering with arnold but it seems like setting up everything would be a bit of a pain. Can you post results if you ever attempt to do it just to see if it'll be worth it? I read that those dudes that make porn from affect3d used maya and redshift for their latest video, so maybe it is worth it. Why can't I just fucking do animation in maya and get it back into daz though fucking hell
>>589109As I understand it, the Affect 3d guys took Daz models, finalized everything, before transferring over to Maya with rigging. I'll see if I can do it. An option you can consider is the BVH file format for importing animations, but again, need to reset the bones but I think that should work. Maybe.
>>587256if you mean iran, their search function doesn't work at all, and they have literally nothing useful. the only sites with stuff are those bullshit ones that want money, or give you a dumb allowance every day.
>>589147No, he was talking about the camel in the picture
>>589131>As I understand it, the Affect 3d guys took Daz models, finalized everything, before transferring over to Maya with rigging. I'll see if I can do it.There is no method of transferring rigging from daz studio to maya. You can transfer skinning, but the control rig must be built from scratch, as well as wiring in all corrective morphs manually.
>>589089I went down that route before. It's easier just to do it in daz or poser unless you want to rig everything in Maya again. That means you're just using the daz models as mesh skins. But try it if that's what you really want to do. Look into Marvelous Designer and Ornatrix.
>>588438Same fag as this one. Solved the genitalia issue by using the New Genitalia + the accompanying pubic hair texture mesh. Skin builder doesn't export the pubic hair to the anatomy, only the torso skin so it was a loss.Now, my current problem is that the body freckles overlay creates this seam on the left leg but not the other leg. Like from the front thigh to area just below the genitalia to the ankles. Any fixes or just to scrap it?
>>589240Did you overlay the freckles after the New Genitalia? If so you might need to use the Update the Materials script again.
>>589222>>589237I was gonna try using Human IK in maya to create rig but thought of importing the test animation in DAZ first, that's when shit got fucked. But yeah creatings rigs for every character, importing scene and re-doing all of the materials seems to be pretty troublesome workflow for animating.
why is it grey?
>>589386They are all like that if you ever saw one irl you would know
>>589386apply genital before applying skin MAT, but you can just re-apply any MAT
>>589386Most characters come with a separate genitalia mat. I don't think default has one.
>>589454>>589459I only have one skin that's compatible with the genital, do you recommend any good one's? (excuse my poor english)
>>589467The new Genitalia for Victoria 8 is universal and doesn't need any compatible materials, and it's backwards compatible with Genesis 3 too.
>http://www.daz3d.com/daz-to-mayaanyone tried this? on sale im thinking of picking it up tomorrow to give it a go if it is really 2 clicks and done
Does anyone know what this hair is called?(All I can figure out is that it must be for V4.)
>>589494holy shit this could be goodcan't bring it back apparently which is alright, but im curious how's the rig gonna behave and how would materials transfer? probably will need to tweak that shit a lot
Not sure if right place to ask, but i am legit retarded when it comes to stuff like licensing and what you can do and not do.Im trying to read the standard license agreement for Daz purchased products, and it says i can "re-sell" anything i "render out" from Daz.So is it legal to actually make those patreon pages and sell daz renders? like when making games that have renders?Will DazDaddy sue me if i make a Renpy game with Daz renders and make a patreon?
>>589493this one? https://www.renderotica.com/store/cat/286_Female-Genitalia/sku/57733_New-Gens-For-Victoria-8 the genital is darker than the default skin, but plays nice with others so it'll do for now
>>589554Dude, people literally steal genesis models and make games out of them.People literally make money of making porn of copyrighted 3d assets literally all day as we speak.Just do whatever you want until someone stops you, they aren't gonna sue you, these billion dollar organizations aren't gonna find where you live and go through a long ass court process to try and take money from you or put you in jail, they'll just shut you down.
>>589560but if the porn is rendered out of DAZ and are merely "stills", then it should be fair game as far as i understand from their licensing.Their interactive license seems to be for 3D games where you take the model and literally rig it to be "interactive"i just want to be legit, that's all
I keep getting this message. I wasn't getting it before.
>>589532Promo Credits have it as Eternal Kyra Hair by Fabinahttps://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/eternal-kyra-hair/98852You are welcome

>>589588if you had the interactive license, then to my knowledge, yes
>>589590>if you had the interactive licenseso daz is basically useless.
>>589592something isn't useless just because it has a pricetag
>>589560show me a game that uses DAZ models, not in the form of pre rendered images but with actual rigged characters
>>589607why is that guy so ugly lol, is he an alien or soemthing?
>>589594the problem is that in order to get a fully customizable character, there's about 9 price tags, excluding the new price tag.
>>589630It's that muscular lesbian face again. Now on a male body.
>>589642thats not a female face
>>589605>>589539>>589494i got it, it really is simpleiv never used maya before and had the character in maya with literally 3 clicks already rigged, i dont know how to go about rigging stuff like boobies and ass jiggle and pussy flaps and BBC's tho
>>589647Does it keeps the pose controls? Also, is there some way to use on Maya all the poses you have on daz?
>>589647Fucking cuckold faggot.
>>589647I've read that it doesn't transfer facial rig, which is something I forgot about completely. I was planning to do animation in maya but then refine it and add facial animation in daz, however since you can't bring it back it's almost pointless for me to get the plugin anyway. Maybe they'll fix these problems down the line. Making face rig on your own in maya for each character is a major turn off though.There's still value in posing everything in DAZ and then bring it to maya for render I guess
>>589663>Making face rig on your own in maya for each character is a major turn off though.don't they all share the same uv layout? you'd only have to rig once.
>>589651t.poorfag>>589650im not sure, im sure you can>>589663it came through with all facial blendshapes for me, considering thats on Daz's side for other exports im pretty sure that means you can add other blends too
>>589646Tell me what's REMOTELY masculine about this.
>>589629Tons of shitty games on steam. "bloody boobs" for one.
>>589676nice bait lol
>>589676Thought that was a dude before I read your text. Retard.
>>589762You some sort of homo or what?
Guys, I need help. How do you export a model with custom skins, morph and all that jazz to an installer/zip of some sort similar to those characters in the daz shop.
>>589578Either install a new one free from DAZ or just restart DAZ cause I sometimes get that randomly.
>>589578Do you use Zone Alarm as your firewall/antivirus?
>>589676You're not even worth the effort anymore. Just enjoy your sameface lesbian fetish and remain a mediocre talent for the rest of your life.
>>589607"Finally, he's made a british man of some sort.>>589676Wellp...
>>589676Looked like you used your lesbiand face on a male to me
>mfw this software helps me satisfy my need for all the big underboobs and sideboobs the internet can't provide Also, tits visible/poking out on the sides of gardener or mechanic overalls.
>>589968Show us some examples senpai?
>>589968id love to see some good overalls shots, i downloaded two overalls and wasnt happy with the way they looked at all
Any new site similar to daz3dfree up for a poor fag like myself?
>>589988did i miss some news on what happened to daz3dfree?last i remember the guy went on holiday for a month, then i remember he came back and now its just not workingdid daz find him
>>589993they shut him down scroll up
>>589676wait... that's *not* supposed to be a dude?
I need a way to get GoZ for daz without using their install manager. all I can find with it is some old torrent that's deadCan somebody please tell me a way to get it, or upload their files if you have it?
>mfw i paid for game ripped content.
>>590187where's that from?
>>590067whats GOZ maybe i have it
>>590067why dont you use the install manager anon? i have over 200gigs of pirated stuff and still use it
>>590194I just don't want to deal with making an account and installing that, just for this one little thing. though I guess I'll have to if I can't find it>>590193it's the tool that allows you to use Send to Zbrush, it's free through daz
>>590195i dont really understand the problem lol, DAZ itself comes through the install manager, seems like you would be jumping through more hoops avoiding it, DIM, DAZ and GoZ are all free just use a silly email and get them you could have what you want in like 2 minutes.ur a strange boy
>>590187>mfw I ripped and rigged Tracer's outfit for free and you're a dumbass
Checked on Manuel Bastioni Lab recently, the models and muscle system look really nice in the latest update. But what I'm really interested in is something it apparently had for a while: Automodellinghttps://youtu.be/wy-FNMjiPf0https://youtu.be/axPgR3KWiowSo ManuelbastioniLab works with human proportions and has an understanding of ideal human proportions. Automodelling allows you to take the body you're working on into Edit mode, roughly adjust the size and location things with seemingly reckless abandon, and then tell ManuelbastioniLab to make it into a believable human character.http://www.manuelbastioni.com/guide_automodelling_system.php"the system can recognize, for example, if a big biceps circumference refers to a bodybuilder or to an overweight man so it doesn't return a character with the torso of a bodybuilder and the arms of an overweight man."At the moment this is only implemented for the body, but automodelling the face is on the roadmap. "This is a milestone and it will require a big amount of time and research. The goal is to create a tool based on heuristic process that permits to easily model the face of the character using as reference a sketch or a photo."
>>5902471.6 looks so much better than even 1.5
>>590247Also for folks not used to Blender, you can also use the sculpting mode to edit the mesh so long as dynamesh isn't enabled. Works just fine going over it with blob / clay strips / inflate / deflate / smooth / grab and all that.
I've been using Dforce for about 3 days and holy fuck it's amazing.I mean I know similar systems exist on other 3d modeling programs, but this is extremely easy to use and it's extremely effective.You can literally get so creative with dforce, im like a kid in a candy store.
I just noticed that Daz has an infinity value inputcool
seriously im fkn dying without daz3dfree these other sites dont even come fucking closewhat was the name of the site that gave you credits per day and most of the downloads used MEGA?
>>590514>seriously im fkn dying without daz3dfreeSounds like you're addicted. You should probably go cold turkey.
>>590324I've been playing around with it a little, but I only manage to end up with the clothing 'exploding'
>>590514Just buy the items, its not like you're gonna use EVERY item available, and they're only like ten dollars a piece
>>590524Thats because they're clipping too hard.
>>590539Dude come on, someone here is gonna snitch
Finally, an outfit that really gets ME.Summer Vacation Outfit for Genesis 8 Male(s)
Anyone here actually bother with simulating cameras in their renders, like bokeh with a shape that reflects the aperture shape like octagons or a soft faded circle instead of a general gaussian-like blur?And then take it into Photoshop or Lightroom or something and apply some film sims like RNI Films or VSCO for more color variance over the different luminosity levels and some soft grain effects to blur / hide suspicious edges?Would think that for something that's basically photography with models you pose there'd be more /p/ things.
>>590806Sounds neat, have you tried it?
>>590806I try but it doesn't really match real world conditions so it's a bit frustrating.I'd really like them to make the cameras more realistic, especially the lighting. Feels like you need ten times more light in daz to get the result you want than you do in the real world.
>>590807No, I don't use Daz, I just like to hop in from time to time and see what's happening.>>590828Is it gamma / color space issues? Camera response to light may not be all that different from how Daz's renderer responds to light with regard to brightness, maybe it's just that cameras tend to have auto exposure / auto ISO to get the brightness right.
>>590833What I'm talking about is when I do a shoot in an enclosed room(ie no dome light) it feels like I have to crank the lights WAY up beyond their standard settings to even get a visible shot.In real life in a completely dark room I can get a nicely lit shot from just one decent not-too-bright off the shelf bulb even without cranking up ISO. I just don't feel like the f-stop controls the light as much as it should. I have a great 11-16 zoom for my irl dslr that's 2.8 and I can get great low-light shots on manual with very little effort. In DAZ trying to achieve something similar makes me feel like I have to have elaborate 1950s Hollywood style lighting to even get a dim approximation.
>>590834I'll give an example. This pic is a shot I took in an old abandoned mansion. The lighting is what you see - sunlight from the room ahead and the one dim bulb in the hallway.Recreating this shot in DAZ would require a huge amount of futzing. That hallway light would need to be cranked up to extraordinary lumens just to be visible, let alone pleasing to look at.
>>590837Reminds me of that old video on Filmic Log color space for Blender and how in the normal color space lights don't get bright enough to actually act like sunlight coming in through a window so the preview is all blown out and harsh but the final render is correct.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9AT7H4GGrA
oh shit boys, just downloaded this scene took two hours to render this picNow I'm off to make a real human bean and some loli replicants, wish me luck, also pls link to a decent leather jacket
>>590842>that quality>2 hoursShit like this makes me regret buying a fucking AMD card. It would take a day of rendering for me to get that.
>>587556they have inifinite quantity of what they sell, so it has no worth no matter how much they worked for it. They should make everything at least same priced or sell 4-5 packs with everythign they have then I would pay.
>>590843Eh my 970 is only serviceable half the time, it's a shit shoot what renders fast and what renders slowly, like stonemason stuff seems to be really well optimized most of the time, but then I leave some bare dimly lit room rendering for up to 9 hours and it'll still be grainy as shitalso this one took slightly over an hour
>>590852Glad I didn't pay for it.
>>590849imagine paying these hacks
>>590848>mfw just adding two characters into the scene was enough to eat up all the remaining vram in my card and the fucking thing crashes when I try to render and I hadn't savedfuck everything
Don't own the new "daz to maya", does it allow to send back to daz the animations you would have done on maya?
This is Frédérique Octavienne, say something nice about her!
>>590946>>590947The shades nicely complement her eyes.
>>590951Thanks fambino. Teashades are pretty great.
>>590946>>>>>>>>>>>>hergive it up already lad
>>590915I've got it but haven't done much with it. Appears to just be an advanced export to FBX function.
>>590946well I must say that you atleast have a character that doesnt have that daz cookie cutter look, like 99% of the people using daz.
>>590946This guy looks pretty cool.>her*clicks*Wellp.
tfw still using v4
>>591066y u do dis
>>590915I've got it, I haven't tried that yet. Basic function is it's quite fast, just use plugin export then use the plug-in it gives you in Maya to in Port, then it also can automatically convert to Arnold. Few issues.It only does diffuse maps when it converts to Arnold unless I'm mistaken, still trying to play around with it.Because hairs are so fucking stupid oversized chances are eyou can't export most hairs with a clothed character and will have to do it separately, unless you decimate the hair. I tried multiple times but Maya just crashes on the import.As for transferring animations back I think so right, but I haven't tried. The pkguin doesn't have a rreverse feature but you should be able to export as fbx with animations and import that file in Daz, right? I'll try it when I'm home tomorrow.
>>591067>>591082Assets and comfort.
>>591066Cease this faggotry.
>>591085But gen 3 has way more stuff that looks better, and you can use any gen2 stuff on gen3 bods.Just not sure I understand.
>>591093not everyone has a 64GB VRAM cardthat you would need if place more than 3 fully clothed G3s or G8s plus props and hair into your scenery. A single G3 can easily take up to 4GB VRAM in Iray. V4 is much more resource friendly for non high end systems
>>589184what morphs did you use for that
MY CELTIES ARE ON
Anybody know what morph/skin these are? From the new ICSTOR game.https://imgur.com/a/yYg4phttps://imgur.com/a/KvyHWhttps://imgur.com/a/lWafA
>>591245Obviously custom made because SURELY they don't just have Patrons just for programming in RPG maker.
Anyone have Ayana Doll model, the download link and author's website are down.
>>590848Raytracer like Iray have difficulties rendering dimly lit room. Unintuitively, the more lights there are, the faster it usually renders, up to a point.
>>591066INCREASE THIS FAGGOTRY!
I swear to god. I've said this before, but DAZ has one of the worst posing systems imaginable. Why couldn't it jjust have a proper IK-rig where the hands and feet are stationary and you move the elbow and knee joints around to get the arms and legs into proper position, etc? It would cut down on the time it takes to pose shit by a factor of ten. I fucking hate this garbage shit.
>>591541I don't like where this is going...
>>591066V4 has the worst genitalia options. However, if 3feetwolf made a new gens v4 I would probably also use her exclusively.
>>591541You might want to look at how horse tails actually work.
>>591541straight up the horse part of this looks fuckingterrible, whats up with that shitty seam spliting the human and horse part, tail looks like a plastic bagjeeez
>>590247>so it doesn't return a character with the torso of a bodybuilder and the arms of an overweight manthat's exactly why i hate it. what if i need a fat boy with bodybuilder arms and chest?
>>591613Sculpt it after?
>>591615>Sculpt it after?if i have to sculpt all that, what's the point of even using it?
is it possible to make a retopo of a daz model, reimport it, and use all the default morphs?
Womanlets. Will they ever learn?
>>591571actually Lali bits is more than solid, and if you are a futafag that Tab dick works on her and can go toe to toe with newer releases.
>>591496They literally have nobody on staff who would know how to fix the IK bugs. They have three programmers who do nothing but minor bug fixes, everything else they either buy and plug in or they contract out.Since day 1 the IK has been bugged and DAE and FBX import/export has been bugged and they have no staff programmers who know how to fix this problem.
>>591496use pins, dingus.
>>591713Fuck off, retard. A decent IK rig doesn't need that SHIT.
>>591714don't call me retarded because you were too stupid to read the instructions.
>>591715Listen, dumbass. My complaint was about the pondersome nature of the posing system as a result of a dogshit IK-rig. Of course I know about pins you fucking retard. They're not necessary in a program with a DECENT IK RIG.
>>591716wow calm down.
>>591717Don't ever respond to me again with this dickass bullshit.
>>591718take a chill pill.
where do people go except zonegfx since daz3dfree disappeard?>>586886is 3Delight really shit? I read somewhere that it's pretty much the same thing as Pixar's Renderman. Is it as powerful? Is the problem just that it's harder to light things properly and that everything looks better in Iray?
Daz are releasing a really good anime model for G8F in December. You heard it here first folks
>>591774if there is a site like daz3dfree no one is going to namedrop iti just use one of the sites that use shitty uploaders, still cheaper than the daz store
>>591613The only halfway decent way to do it is to load two figures, one fit the other fat and parent the fat figure to the fit one and enable collision.
>>591541>the horse half is shitting out a solid log of hairIs this a fetish?
Any good anime hair on any off-daz3d.com shops? Can't find any
Can you use skin textures for Genesis 8 female on Genesis 3 female? I don't really want to switch all of my shit over to Genesis 8.
>>591898the base g8f model to the base g3f probably yes but many other characters have unique UV maps and then you'll get weird black seams and stuff
>>5917743Delight is pretty much Renderman. It's great for NPR renders but if you want photo realism then Iray is faster. But for NPR 3Delight is way faster.
>>591678I'm surprised they even spent the money to buy Gforce for Daz Studio since their business model is to only make the software as good as it needs to be to sell their clothing assets for the latest Genesis model. I guess it's gotten to the point where they realized that there is literally no excuse for not having cloth sim on a product anymore (yeah I know their deal with Optitex meant they were restricted for dynamics until 2017 but still...).I'm surprised they would let an asset like Hexagon fall into such a state. It has the best UI of any vertex modeller and if they updated its features and made it more stable on modern operating systems while maintaining it's friendly UI they'd have a software package that could become a serious industry work horse. But I guess if you only have 3 programmers on staff there's only so much you can do and I'd imagine they'd be busy bug chasing in the program that is currently their cash cow rather than building up their real assets.I seriously can't tell which company is run by the biggest idiot. Daz or Smithmicro?
>>591913It's more like a retard fight at this point.
>>592146I'd pay money to see Thornton and Junior in a slap fight.
>>592220I WANT TO FUG PLASTIC
>>592248>>592250Is this better?
>>591649The Tab dick is amazing
>>592200Have you made nudes of this character? I want to fap over them.
>>5923916.5/10. I like it.Wait until I'm home and you can rate my goddess waifu.
>>592679Took my time. Needed to remove the cum and whatnot of my goddess waifu.
