In this tutorial we focus on the three water shaders in Daz Studio Iray – water, water thin, and water dispersive. We also experiment with an underwater mermaid scene and water caustics.
I am really loving the results that I am getting from Daz Studio Iray. Here, I talk about some of the useful Iray techniques that I have learned from the Daz3D forums, from talking to other Dazaholics, and from my own Iray experiments.
One of the biggest thing that sets a 3d-image apart from others is the lighting used. Lights can add depth, change mood, create tension, guide the eye, and much more. In this article, I talk about my Daz Studio lighting journey. I describe all the different lighting setups that I have gone through, what I have learned from each one, and why I switched to something else.
This tutorial describes how I create a simple scene, from start to finish, for the Daz Studio Iray renderer. In particular, I discuss how to assign Iray materials, and how to create simple but realistic lighting in Iray with an image based light (IBL).
This article talks about creating 3d art using Daz Studio, the Reality plugin, and LuxRender. In particular, we compare the quality of renders made with Reality + Lux, with those rendered only in Daz Studio. We also discuss how Reality changes our 3d art creation process, and what additional steps we may need to take.
In this tutorial, I talk about how I combine poses in Daz Studio. It is quite simple to do, and I was able to start generating interesting fantasy art with it, even as a Daz Studio beginner.
I started really using Daz Studio a few months ago and wanted to put down some of the most useful functions that I discovered. These are the things that may not be readily apparent (especially to a beginner), but were extremely useful for creating great renders. Following, I will list a set of common issues […]
I have always loved fantasy art. I am not trained as an artist, but even as a Daz Studio beginner, I can use it to create cool looking art that I previously would never be able to produce. Here, I talk about my early experiences with Daz Studio, how I add fantasy figures and environments, how I set up some simple lights, and ultimately make my imagination real.
