observation: Kate’s hair takes five times longer to render than Jessi’s hair.  I even turned off the shadows and image based lighting.  Maybe Kate’s hair uses fancy transparency effects instead of a dynamic skull cap.

The lighting looks fine in Poser’s preview window.  Guess I need to adjust the spotlight.

...the GenX update is on the way, what I feel is holding it up is the release of G2F/Mike6 as I’m sure D3D wants to have both genders included rather than doing a separate update for each.

That is something I’m still waiting on.

In the meantime, Zev0 will be releasing a version of the Growing Up morphs for Genesis 1 sometime this month so you may want to consider that instead of the Josie bundle, particularly if you have a lot of content for the original Genesis. You will be able to create kids & teens from just about any Genesis character, male or female, including creatures like the Troll (a lil’ Bot Genesis?).

It most likely will be the same price 15.95$ less 30% at release (or maybe better if it comes out during the PC sale).

Yeah, you’re probably right about M6, that said, it took ages for there to be an M4 when V4 ruled the roost.

I got Josie’s bundle, I wanted a texture or two ready for G2 and some outfits I didn’t need to autofit. I still have loads of V4 clothes I can use so I won’t be stuck for anything. Until M6 I think I’ll start getting more scenes so I can get the most out LDPR.

By the time I’m back into 3D full time I’ll have a huge arsenal of stuff to play with so I’m unlikely to get bored with DS any time soon

CHEERS!

It’s been ages since I really did much with Poser, below are some render settings I used to use. You can ignore the settings for indirect light if you’re not going to use it. They give good results.

hi, thanks for the tips.  I’ll play with Poser 9 later.

Here is a quick test render of young teen Julie and Teen Josie 6.  I’ll fix it up later after lunch.  Sorry for the small size but I only have a 17 inch monitor.  Maybe I’ll zoom the camera in for the next render.

Daz Studio 4 uses 600 MB of memory for this scene.

edit: i really should change the render settings too.  :red:  The weird shadows and lines on Josie aren’t supposed to appear on her.

Nice,

I’d change the camera angle a little too, that way you won’t see the edge of the set. This is why I mainly do portraits as there isn’t much else in the scene!

Quick update on my last render.  The dark artifacts/banding is gone.  I would have changed Josie’s outfit but I want to show everyone something. I now see seams on Josie’s skin.  I guess I need to edit the shading rate for 3Delight and the texture.

I did this one i think a couple months ago. a month and a half ago something like that anyway.

I don’t think the back ground turned out too bad on this one. The character could have looked a bit more menacing i suppose.
She looks more like, “what, there is a battle going on behind me? Oh well i still have time to pose.”

Yeah, I do remember seeing those, and yeah, it could be the shading rate. You’ll just have to give it a try and see what happens. I’m sure there’s something in the tutorials about it.

Great looking render,

It has a Chris Achilleos feel to it, something I’ve always admired.

Voluptuous stone lady.  I need to buy some the Fantsy Castle Grounds for $1.99 from the Platinum Club store.  I might buy some more castle related items for $1.99.  All I have is the old castle set that isn’t in the store any more.
