To get a better rendered PNG image or a rendered movie from Daz, would you need to change in settings in Daz preferences? Do I need to increase the open GL setting? Or turn on the pixel buffer and turn it up all the way? Not sure if these settings have anything to do with the quality of the image. I have just been rendering out my animation as image series PNG’s and the image looks fine, but there is an outline that seems like someone made a bad pen tool selection around the figure in photoshop.
Firstly, I want to tackle the OpenGL question. Since the render is done using the 3Delight render engine which is software only, the OpenGL settings don’t matter at all for a final render.
Secondly, yes, the render settings make a massive difference to the final image. I don’t deal with rendered movies, but for still images there’s a guide which I usually use. I have no idea who made this original guide so I always say that if someone can remind me I’ll ask their permission to post it, or if it’s likely to cause a problem the admins are free to delete it and ask me not to post it again.
Until that happens, here it is (click for full size)...
