Hello folks,


Yes, I’m still here!


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


CHEERS!

At this time you can’t log into the forum archive site. They will be working on that when the current store and forums are up and running properly.

Thanks Frank,


Still, it’d make more sense to have them post their stuff in here, then everyone can access it.


CHEERS!


PS (This double return lark to start new lines and paragraphs takes some getting used to, I hope that’s something you’re also working on!)

Oh, not found me yet!?


Never mind,


Here’s a brand new render below of Mec4D’s Eli with a studio set up as per Caisson’s fantastic tutorial (Available as a Freestuff download @ Renderosity) and IDL lighting.


I absolutely LOVE that set-up, so much so that, for what I do, it’s now my default scene!


More will follow…


CHEERS!

Can you post a link to this?  I was not able to find it.  Thanks.

I didn’t see any reason not to in the TOS so, the Freestuff index is here:


http://www.renderosity.com/mod/freestuff/index.php


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.


Hope this helps


CHEERS!

No problem,


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!


CHEERS!


PS (Having to do double returns so they show up as single ones on the forum is getting tedious. Please fix it!)

...nice pic.  Was that done in PP2010 or PP2012?


Have 2010 running on the notebook and it seems a lot more stable even in 32 bit than Stidio3A. One of the real lifesavers are the Queue Manager and being able to render in background.


I’m sure I posted this on the olde thread but adding it here as I am just amazed at the quality 200 offers even for a simple pic. 


This used Traveler’s studio light preset that was included with the V4.1Bonnie freebie character (yeah an oldie but a nice setup nonetheless).

Very nice,


The render I did was done in PP2012, I never had 2010. Had I had this machine when DS4 was still free I might almost have been tempted.


I remember Bonnie, she was among the first sets I downloaded when I first got V4, I used to use that light set a lot too.


CHEERS!


EDIT:


Ooerr, it’s still free! I might have to check this out and see what the fuss has been about!

What!?

You still haven’t found me yet!? Now DSON is out we can really get this thread cooking, here’s a Genesis render to get the ball rolling again…

CHEERS!

...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.

Nice render,

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.

CHEERS!

Here’s V5!!

She’s standard, but, I used the Danae Dublin texture via Mec4D’s UV switching script for DSON.

Enjoy!!

CHEERS!

New DAZ is really starting to feel like home again now! Just hope I can squeeze in time to render some now. grin

That it is!

Shortly after that render was made, PP2012 kept having hissy fits, so, I uninstalled it and DSON and re installed them. It seems a lot more stable now and I was able to get a render out.

He’s M5 but converted by Mec4D into Buddy 2. Her male textures are amazing!

CHEERS!
