Predatron Essential Lights & Skies

This set of 12 DAZ Studio 4.5+ lights includes 11 associated skydomes. Ranging from clear sky, light cloud, cumulus cloud, foggy, heavy cumulus, sunset, night clear, night clouds, dusk, hazy and overcast. Each light is parented to the skydome, so rotate and get different lighting angles with an alternative sky backdrop. All light sets have been split into Indirect Lighting and Occlusion Light options. Be aware that the IDL versions will render a lot slower than the Occlusion option, but the bounce light will be a lot nicer.

This set is a perfect tool for your lighting needs.

    Might be a stupid question.. but is it possible to use the skies without the light that comes with the product? Most of the time I prefer to put out my light myself, partly cause it is usually easier on the computer and partly so I can learn more about how it works with shadows and so on :)

    Yes you can use the lights without the sky, just hide the skydome in your scene.
    You can delete the skydome if you wish, but you'll need to unparent the lights first. Probably just easier to hide it.
    Or if you want to use the skydome separately, just delete the lights.

    Hi Predatron

    When i try and load the heavy Cumulus preset i am missing 2 files:

    P3DA_Sky360_23
    P3DA_IBL_Sky19

    I've re-downloaded and installed both via DIM as well as from the trx but these 2 files don't show up. The others work fine.

    The zip file too does not contain these files in its content folder.

    Thanks in advance and thanks for the great stuff you produce.

    Ciao

    Hi Predatron,

    I’ve just bought this light set over at DAZ, but sadly I can’t get the IDL presets to work: all my four machines are crashing about 5 mins into a render, no matter if rendered to a new window or a file. I’ve tried this on Windows 7, Windows 8 and two MacBook Pro’s running Mountain Lion. Any tips?

    The occlusion presets are working fine.

    I'm using the 64-bit version on both Mac and PC.
