This is kind of a partner thread to my what venders we want are looking forward to thread.

I have a list of products I need and would like to see pop up on the site. Does not have to be on the sale, but maybe there is something similar already on sale that someone may need and could have missed.

So I am going to start with a set of above water/ under water caustic lighting that can be projected onto object like gel lights maybe. These would be for studio

So if you have any products you may need post them here and maybe we can try and help each other out in finding them. I think that’s a good idea.

What program do you want these for?

I believe Carrara can do Caustic lighting, not sure how but its there.

DAZ Studio has the ability to do so.  Requires a caustics camera plus a different setting for the surface

Not sure of Poser.  May want to ask Baggins Bill if the Material Room can do it or not.

LuxRender and Octane are capable of doing Caustics because they treat light realistically.  I know there is an Octane exporter for DS, not sure about Poser.  Reality is comming very shortly for Poser users and is already available for DS3 & DS4 so you can export your scene to LuxRender and render casutics.

Whether DS3 or DS4, if you look at the default installed content there is examples of caustics provided that you can look over in the Sharder Mixer to see how its done plus I know you can save that out as its own shader to be applied as you please.  Just make sure you save the camera too.

Well, off the top of my head…

1) Dynamic hair (So anxious for LAMH but SO ready also for the next step already… love ya, Alessandro!)
2) A tool for making dynamic hair and clothing in DAZ.
3) Soft body dynamics
4) Genesis Hat (looking at you, blondie9999) smile
5) Genesis Quadraped with premade geo-grafted sets of dragon wings and lengthy tails. (Genesis Dragon, kinda? or… cow? 0.o )
6) More period/theme clothing (Daz should choose two each month and ask there vendors to aim for that while creating normal stuff too. Like Western, Renaissance, & modern then Medieval Japan, The Great War, & modern, etc.)
7) Movie ready “sets”
8) Geo-grafted morphing tail (Rounded end, pointed end, barbed end (ala Nightcrawler), flatten, shorten, swell, etc.)
9) More Geo Grafted items in general…

Okay… I am done. *smile*

That is quite a list

I would be happy with more studio gel lights and caustics for now

You’re welcome. I hope it works. In DS4.0x the glass shader in shader mixer wasn’t correct and I don’t know if it was fixed but you have the base for the light and camera

Thread moved to Product suggestions, as that is a better forum for a thread like this.

I’m shocked that nobody has mentioned The Millennium Cow!

That’s The Most Important Thing ...

See #5 in my list above (Who could forget the burning desire by the populace at large for the millennium cow?)

I am fairly sure it will be the next to be released when they do the Genesis Quadruped
