I have been away with my other hobby, which, in case anyone can’t remember is 1/6 figures. They have taken up a LOT of my time and money in recent months.
The other week, my Compaq laptop started dying on me so I went and got a replacement. I decided to do it right this time and I now have an HP Pavilion DV6 with 6gb of RAM, a quad core Intel i5 2ghz processor and a dedicated AMD Radeon 6000 series graphics card. It spits out PP2012 renders in under a minute!
Nothing new to show you yet, but, I have been reading Caisson’s superb tutorial on Renderosity and aim to try out what he’s done really soon.
I couldn’t log into the old thread in the forum archive and a search didn’t turn a new one up, so, in the interest of continuity, I decided to start a new Realistic Renders…NOT thread here in the new community.
So, start posting your new renders here and I look forward to seeing stuff from you all soon
Part 2 is on this page and Part 1 will be on the next one. It’s entitled Lighting and Rendering Demo and has a snarly face as the icon, it’s in .pdf format which means you’ll need Adobe Reader in order to access it.
He can be a bit vague on the exact translation settings for the lights, but once you work that out they work really well. Once you’ve got all the lights in the right position, I’d suggest locking the actors and saving the scene so you always have one with all the lights perfectly positioned.
I hope the others find this thread soon, otherwise all the renders will be by me!
PS (Having to do double returns so they show up as single ones on the forum is getting tedious. Please fix it!)
...just picked up DSON (free is a very good price) but have yet to DL and install.
For the time being here’s one from me of my favourite little girl done with Genesis in 4.5 before I broke the directory mapping trying to troubleshoot issues with GenerationX not being able to load Gen3/Gen4 morphs.
Genesis with the Steph4 body shape, Princess Morphs, and yes, Tindra skin MAT.
...unbelievably done on my old duo core 32 bit notebook. Guess my skepticism about 4.5 was for naught as (until I broke it) it runs even better than 3Advaned.
Make sure you have the 32 bit DSON installed. The way I got it to work was to create a Daz library in Documents and install the Genesis content into it, then I put that in as a new library in PP2012 and it worked like a charm. Catharina is working on companion files for her Buddy 2.0 to M5 pack so I’ll be able to work with him when I get M5.
I want to get Genesis fully and V5 this week though, knowing my luck M5 will be full price again when I get round to him. Whatever, I should have something else to put in here before the week is out.
