I want to know how to create a shader like the LIE series that applies additional texture overlays to any character skinshader you have loaded and leaving the original shader setting in place. I know how to do multi layer editing, but I want a shader instead of manually doing it.


Uber surface 2 gives you the ability to add another diffuse bump displacement and ambient layer over the existing one, not sure if thats what you’re after.

Uber Surface 2 also gives you blending modes like Add, Multiply and Mask Mode for the second Layer with a lot of flexibility on how the second layer shows though the first. This test image http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/2765/P75/#55305 I did a while ago with US2. The blueish veins under the skin comes from a second layer using a Black and White mask and diffuse colour a saturate blue/grey set the Blend to Mask Mode and adjusted the blend to about 50% so the second layer wasn’t so harsh and mutted.

Speaking of Ambiant Occlusion, pwSurface2 also has AO

This is the online pwS2 help guide which also comes with the shader when you purchase it - http://www.poseworks.com/shaders/pwsurface2/

All Posework DS shaders has a simular online guide.  Just Google the name of the pwShader and it should be one of the first links

I want to know,, muching about skin shader and light (mesh,, or envilonments or default) and lender engine,,

My brain is almost panic,, when I think about combination of these,,,

so I decide two things for myself,

1,I just play with render-man (3D-light) of daz studio now.

2. now I get uverenvironment light (it is default set of ds4) or volumelight set

and I get ilanae grory light set,2 and 3, (it is mesh light, and rigged light,, OK,,I just recognize,
It seems some kind of special good light sets,, I believe,,)

I never try other light set, untill I know them well.

so,, now I want to change my cute characeter skins more beautiful,, with good not so difficult skin shader,,,

but I am not artist, and I think my eye maybe hole on face, about whati is beauty lender,
I hope just keep skin clear and beauty and soft,, no spot,,,
and I may not take long time for one picture,, I can not wait more than one hour,,,

but I want to make more clear and beautiful lender in capable of ability and time.
I am lazy man,,,

so what skin shader you recommend for me?? 
cool cheese

Kita, if you want to use Area lights, UberEnviroment AND skin shaders, 1 hour of rendering time seems to be a bit short (or you have a Cray computer).

With all these and an average imagesize of 1000 to 1500 pixels on the longest side and depending on the scene and background props you will have to count on rendering times from 1 hour upwards, often an “overnighter”!

As for the skin shader, almost all of the newer skins and characters with DS-mats are coming already with an advanced skin shader. If you want it smooth and clean, play with the bump settings.
