Reby Sky is shipping with Carrara shaders.
Others have said they are the best, have not had the time to try them:

I actually had to Bing for who this person was…well, those texture sure do look damn fine. I guess I can buy one more item today (I passed one of the tests toward SQL Server 2012 certification…so this is me rewarding myself!)

BTW, what the heck is this: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/reby-sky-magnet-fit

Carraractors: Delphina hasn’t been mentioned yet? Probably because all Carrara owners must assume that everyone buys this when they purchase Carrara? Hmnpf!
Anyways, Here’s a link to this Carrara Genius’ Daz Store:

I don’t have any of them… but I want pretty much the whole collection.

I grabbed “Doyle” “Ulrich” and “Joshua” along with the V4 stuff. Those guys are just what I was seeking—older gents who have seen a bit of the world and lived to tell the tale… smile

Nothing fancy, just a simple multiply… worked great for those ‘veins in the muscles’ type of displacement.

Nifty…I haven’t tried doing much with displacement maps yet…just one more thing in a very long list of stuff to learn.

Congrats Garstor! Nobody deserves a good “Spoiling” better than you, my friend!
Nonetheless, think of displacement maps the same as you would a height map for a Carrara terrain and you feel the whole picture in your gut much faster than any explanation. White = High, Black = Low. But then there’s all those nifty parameters to fun with… ahhhh!

I really like the Elite series of skin shaders.
.
I use this to enhance them…

.
I’m really surprised there weren’t many more Elite shaders made. It would have been nice to have some shaders with tattoos.
.

I know, right?
One can never have enough realistic people maps in one’s collection!
Wow… what a fun thread. I fine myself digging through all of my Runtime/Textures folders! lol

Okay…I must put my foot down and not buy anything else today. Delphinia is favourited… smile Let’s see what is left in the bank next week after the mortgage (and fiscal cliff! long face ).

Well, the reason it stumped me that Dimension Theory’s offering was missing from the thread is because of his very awesome approach. He gives four quality variants to choose from. From Basic (Reflection and SSS = None) to Superb, which uses reflection and sss. But then he includes some incredible video tutorials - which will certainly help an Carrara artist to play confidently in other areas of their existing favorite shaders - plus a really cool tidbit about his “Camera Control rig” which is simple, but Way Cool!!!

Please know that the product requires that you first purchase RM Delphinia V4, which for some crazy reason doesn’t appear in Rebelmommy’s Daz store, so follow the link provided. Gonna have to fix that!
I know it’s a lot to dish out for a character, getting both products. But the set is excellent and is a great learning tool to boot. Not to mention the fact that it supports an incredible Carrara Published Artist, who is very generous with friendly advise. Just check his YouTube channel!
