Come join this fun 3D-art contest. It is easy to join, there are few restrictions, and we are giving away a bunch of Daz3D gift certificates for prizes. You can enter as many times as you like, and both old or new 3D-renders are welcome.
For rendering 3D-pictures and figures we can use Poser, Daz Studio, or Carrara. Poser is the oldest and most mature. However, Daz Studio has many features and new add-ons that are not available on Poser. In addition, it is free. Carrara has some great environment effects and some cool tools such as vertex editing. We consider which one to use for our computer generated pictures.
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).
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 encountered, and then discuss useful tips and tricks that I found within Daz Studio, to [...]
I describe the three main classes of lights that I use in my Daz Studio Iray scenes. These include an image based light, three mesh lights, and a volumetric light.
