I’ve only just started with DAZ studio and I’m currently working on my first test scene, which is five figures on the Greek Rotunda from the DAZ shop. My current problem is that I’m really struggling with lights and lighting. I’m planning a series of scenes set in a cave, in the future, so getting the light levels right is crucial to what I want to achieve, Specifically, I need to be able to do two things:
1) Control the light levels, varying them from broad daylight to night.
2) Control the depth of shadows.
Number 1) is the most important.
I’ve tried the lighting presets bundled with Genesis 4.5 and I’ve also downloaded Serene Scene DS4, which boasts 8 sunset and 9 moonlit nights. No matter how much I fiddle with the various parameters, however, I always seem to end up with broad daylight. when I do the render.
Needless to say, the manual that DAZ supply is no help at all on account of the fact that there isn’t one. I’m probably making a beginners mistake but, since I’m a beginner I can’t figure out what it is. Can anyone help?
