well i know it's a very small tribe, but somewhere out there , they are still using Daz Studio 1.8 and 2.3

As long as you render in software (3Delight ) mode and use the proper shader, DS1 and DS2 can render tiled textures

and here's a proper shader

Image below was rendered in DS 1.8

in 2012

oh my Bob !

later that day i discovered that DS2.3 too didnt have tiling, and the new shader works for DS 2.3 too, how lucky is that!

the version posted july 2 2012 has independent controls for Bump/Displacement tiling

and the version posted july 3rd has reflection, refraction and is completed yay hooray woo hoo

    Looks nice.
    .
    Quick question...
    How do you tile textures in DS 2.3?
    I don't see tile on the surface tab.
    Making custom tex mats is a pain.
    Do I need to run a script like this one?
    .
    Thanks!

    Well how about that i thought DS2.3 had tiling but it doesnt

    the good news is, the new shader i posted works with DS 2.3 too !

    ( i have Ds 1, 2, 3, 4 on the same pc )

    This image rendered in DS2.3, 10x10 tiling

    Thanks for your quick answer!
    .
    I'll have to try this.

    /EDIT
    Another Quick question..
    Does this work for bump mats also?
    .
    Thanks again

    nope, because the displacement / bumpmap part of the shader was left as-is.

    a while ago (2010) i did make some tests with displacement shaders and i should take time to finish and package it someday

    there' the water in that video is an animated shader

    actually i tried my hand at a tilable displacement shader
    and if all goes well i'll publish it later today

    on the left you can see the image

    on the right, a tiling bump map

    next i'll see what it needs to work for displacement maps

    oops actually this seems to be the displacement effect, not the bump

    well the new shader for DS 1 and 2 should come out tomorrow
    there will be the usual texture tiling
    plus independant Bump/Displacement tiling

    in the image below, the diffuse color map is tiled 3x2
    and the Displacement map is tiled 30x20

    this opens possibilities that single tiling control lacked

    2nd image is the displacement map used

    news ~ update ~ news ~ update ~ news ~ update ~ news ~ update ~ news ~ update ~

    so this morning the shader was updated and now has independent Tiling control for bump/displacement

    so you could have a diffuse map with the word spalding

    and a tiled displacement map for the dimples

    ---

    later today i should post another version with reflectivity functionnal

    as shown here

    if you downloaded the shader before you read this post,

    it's probably better to re-download it,

    because at one point i posted a version that didnt work

    ( i humbly apologize , feel secure in knowing that i consider myself the abject shadow of a yellow dog's flea and unforgivable, ok maybe not that humbly :) )

    so in theory if the universe cooperates, the shader will work fine :)

    i made it, a mix of a leotard and a quipao/cheongsam
    it's a spinoff of trying to reproduce the light and skin in this ad:
    low cut cheongsam
    but i'm so far from the mark !!
    i may post the leotard and dress for free someday but not soon.
    the dress (chongsam) in the image below was eventually converted into a dynamic dress and used in some videos
    presenting mcjTeleBlender

    I've been playing with this shader and I love it.
    I know that this is a "glossy shader", but is there a way to make it less glossy?
    In the attached render, my entry in the Aug. freebie contest, I used the shader on the ground plane.
    As you can see under the bikes, the shadow is washed out by how glossy the ground is.
    And this is after I turned the glossiness down to 65%.
    I know that I'm doing something wrong, any suggestions?
    .
    Thanks

    simply turn "specular strength" down to 0%

    also make sure not reflection map is applied to the reflection channel of the surface, and that the reflection strength is at 0

    --

    note that if you apply a "voronoi" texture like the one shown in the second image to the bump map,you get a sort'of good beach sand
    i made the voronoi texture using blender, it's free. That texture is non tilable but, if you google-ima-search for 'voronoi' you can find seamless/tilable ones.

    4th image is the same texture but sharper

    HI! So when do you think DS 4 version might be available? Are there any plans to make it also for DS 3 and 4?

    He made this script to give users of DS 1.7 - DS2.3 some features that are already present in DS 3 & DS 4.
    So you don't need it. Check the surfaces tab, you'll find it all there.

    sorry i didnt reply before, but it seems the daz forum skips emailing me about new posts :)

    i will probably make a ds3, ds4 ds4.5 version
    the interesting feature of this shader which is not present in DS3+ is the separate tiling of the bump maps

    also, down the road, a shader to make oceans the way Carrara (i think) does it in the free edition, by adding sinewaves
    i experimented with that too-long ago :) as seen on YT (oh my) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKGKv_E8Lo8
