Bendinggrass:

It looks to me that the new set, Core Lights I, is intended to be a multi-purpose set ideal for someone looking for their first lightset. However, I don’t own it (yet) and I can tell you from experience that you can’t go wrong with Lantios Lights 2 as far as quality is concerned. It may not be quite as versatile, though. So in my opinion, either one would be a good choice.

You’re correct…the second render of mine is the one without postwork. Not too surprised that you prefer it, as postwork isn’t exactly my forte. Just to clarify, the postworked version was based on a different render, though. Glad you enjoyed them.

As far as I know, Lantios is really 18 and he’s been a PA since he was 16 I think!

Edited to add: the hair used in my Lantios renders is AprilYSH’s amazing Gia Hair, currently on sale!

AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!

It says if you buy AprilYSH’s Calais hair you will get a 25% discount on Lyon hair.

Bought the Calais hair then tried to buy the Lyon hair.

The discount code was accepted (after several tries) but it isn’t shown when the Lyon order goes through to Paypal. At which point I cancelled the order.

Is this a glitch in the system or what?

That could be a reference to an old promotion which is no longer good. I’ve seen a number of those announcements. Things tied to March Madness sales or other such events. That one may date from when Lyon Hair first came out.

The Texture Templates for the Dynamic Supersuit Set 2 Cosmic Gods in the Resource Files section are for another product.

I wish they wouldn’t tease like that. The actual cash value of the discount is not much but still ...

If I were you, I’d buy them without the discount and then contact support. J0del might be correct, but then again it’s possible that the promotion was intended to continue, but the mechanism was broken during the change to the new site (no vouchers any more). And if it is an expired promotion, they should remove it from the product description.

I’m seeing it on the Lyon page: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/lyon-hair-and-ruff

If you have already purchased Calais Hair and Ruff, you will receive a 25% discount voucher to use towards your purchase of Lyon Hair and Ruff.

...but not the Calais page. Maybe it got updated? Pretty sure it was there earlier today.

Was an old promotion though, as JOdel said, where the page hasn’t been updated. I shall flag it up.

Mild oddity.

I finally broke down and bought Valandar’s Jabberwok. It’s one of the old ones that comes in a .zip file. However, it didn’t come alone. Inside the .zip file was another archive containing the .zip of Bobbie25’s Evening Style dress.

I’ve already got that one, so no harm done. But I don’t know how a dress could have got inside an archive for a monster. The monster certainly couldn’t have worn it.

(Have reported)

Below is a Daz Studio 4 Pro render of Michael 5 mix utilizing light preset 06 from Lantios Core Lighting 1.     
Rendering time was 21 minutes 45.89 seconds and it was only 6 times longer than when rendering the same scene
with one distance light with the shadow map.
I am very happy with the results and it only confirm that if you wish to render scenes directly in Daz Studio
Lantios lights are the excellent choice. Click the image to see it enlarged.
