Does the Atmospheric Effect Cameras for DS work in DS 4.5?

http://www.daz3d.com/atmospheric-effects-cameras-for-daz-studio

and if they do, is there a user guide? the one that is in DS isn’t working when I click on it.

Short n sweet; yes they do and there’s a link to the user guide (pdf) in the product description.

Hope this helps

Nothing substantial to add…but…grab it, it`s a great product imo. The fogs alone are worth having it.

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.

Oh my Vicky, what big hands you have!
I was looking at those camera’s too, I like the depth map camera personally, but the fogs are a nice thing.

i was tempted by the fog effects, and as its on special offer i couldn’t resist it.  i have to say i am astounded at what can be achieved just by cameras!  this adds an entire new dimension to my renders.  definitely worth getting, and has opened up a whole new area for me.

oh, and there is a link to the user guide within DS once you install the product - it is in the folder with the cameras.

...just be careful when using the Volumetric camera with content that relies transmaps (see below) to hide parts as the full outline will appear.  I used the JeanZ for V4 set to the “short” shorts.  If you look closely, you can see the outline of the full length leggings.

Otherwise it is a great tool that significantly saves on render time compared to “in scene” fog/atmospheric effects.

I’m curious about this product. Does it require postwork, or can the effects be all done within daz?

most of the effects do not require postwork at all, but one of the cameras is specifically designed to produce masks to be used for various effects within GIMP, photoshop, or PSP.

its going to take a bit of experimenting to get expert at this, but i’m already getting some interesting results - no post work on this - its all done with daz studio.

...nice volumetrics.  makes things look just a bit more sinister.


Did this cute little “blast form the past” scene last night using the fog camera set to 600m


Reminds me of those hazy (smoggy) New York City days back then when “flower power” was in full bloom.


Used Cloud9 with the UberHelper light turned down by 25% to give it more the effect of filtered sunlight.
