Greetings,

DestinysGarden - 06 September 2012 03:34 PM

I just want to clarify, so that no one thinks there is a flaw with the product itself,  that the issue with IG’s Photo Studio is completely dependent on an expected update to the UberArea Light Shader that Daz has promised will be forthcoming, and a 4.5xx release will fix the issue. They function perfectly in DS 3.xx and 4.xx. Sorry for the inconvevnience and crashes at this time. Trust me, no one wants the issue fixed more than we do.

Yes, I used them a lot under DS 4, which is why in my first renders in 4.5 I reached for them again, and…well, I hadn’t saved when I tried to add lights… :blush:  Thanks for the info on the expectation for a fix!


As for Lantios’ sets, I have two in my cart and am dithering on the Core Lights, trying to guess if it’s needed if I’m already getting Lantios Lights 2.  (The other one is the GIS Orion lights, which despite not having a set of promo images, I’ve wanted for months, because I really like the GIS Orion set…)

Awesome render, Cathy_Mod!

Here’s my homage to Lantios, featuring his Lantios Lights 2:

I won’t claim the original concept…I heavily borrowed from two of Lantios’s own renders (like any good art student, I find that one of the best ways to learn is to copy one of the established masters). Second image has no postwork. First does have postwork, and uses a different light preset, also from Lantios Lights 2. Not sure I did them justice, but I’m personally happy with the results.

Here are links to the images I used for reference: http://lantios.deviantart.com/art/Magic-283659434

Edited to add, the hair I used is AprilYSH’s Gia Hair…on sale today, and highly recommended!

I really dig Blondie9999’s From the Deep Aquatic Genesis. I wish it had some sharp nails and spikes but it was easy to fake with Photoshop’s liquify filter.

Facial hair is from Mec4d Unshaven Bundle for Genesis. Morphs include ones from Sirano M5, Sirena V5, Gorilla, and Creature Creator Bundle.

Post work was done using Photoshop.

Fantastic render Pixel8ted!  I was out most of yesterday and missed this one, so am hoping for a catch up sale. Good one blondie!

Hello Everyone.

I am looking and reading here, and I am really impressed by the Lantios lights.

I am using DS4 Pro, and I wonder if you experienced folks could tell me what light sets of Lantios would be the best to get as a first set.
You should know I am still learning, and I want to make sure what I get will also work with the new version of DS 4.5

Thank you everyone.

I think Lantios Lights 2 have gotten the ravest reviews since their release.  They are simple to use and give some great results right out of the box, and they are working in 4.5 for me.
I’m interested in his new “Core Lights” package, but haven’t seen any renders yet.  But I’m sure someone will jump in soon.
Anyways, my opinion?  Lights 2 are the way to go.  smile

HI Scott-Livingston.

Your pics displayed as a homage to Lantios are beautiful.
I am surprised, but I like the second one more. Am I correct in thinking that is the one without postwork?
Great work.

Jeez… you guys just made me want to spend even more money *lol*
I love lantios’ lights and it was hard enough not to just throw the lights into the cart, but now… *sigh*
can anyone tell me if it is ds4 only or if it will work in ds3 too?

Sorry… me and my big questioning gabber… sowing doubt in your mind.
Great point you bring up.
These lights look amazing, though.
It will be great to get more comments on them but I am fairly sure I will be getting at least one of his light sets.

Is Lantois really 18 years old… tremendous knowledge and skill at that age if so.
If not… I’m just gullible… smile

^^ No need to be sorry… I’m quite sure it’ll have jumped into my cart wit the catchup sale anyway… or with the next sale… there always is one more. That’s how I know the world will not end as long as DAZ exists wink

Well if you’re gullible I’m gullible too… I read about a very young age of lantios somewhere on the old forums, if I remember correctly… and I trust it is true smile
