Wow Loving the renders Marieah and Fisty!  Saving pennies now, must have this!  Will these work in DS 3 ( I think you said in the old forum but I can’t remember)?

Yes

Now, think about this: pushed plates, sucked seams; rainbow sheeny on plates, black mesh on seams…

There isn’t black mesh in the set so I used the black cord instead.

I really love that effect - did it take long to render?

About 7 minutes without the transmap on the hair.. and about 50 minutes with the transmap. I should have turned off the AO on the hair.

Thanks for the quick reply Fisty! smile  That’s much quicker than I had anticipated.  Yeah, AO is a killer with hair….....

I should extrapolate..  I did use a 360 environment with it, if you don’t the colors come out darker.  It still looks pretty but it’s more a medium shade than a pastel usually.  I’m fairly sure it also renders faster with a solid visible sphere around it..  I used the one that comes with my freebie liquid shaders from Christmas.

Here’s the download link for that is you missed it, the one from Daz no longer works

If you use Norton you will likely get a false positive due to some digital signature, don’t yell at me, it’s not my site.

Ooh, thanks again Fisty - will check it out…....smile  I admit I struggle with lighting these days, which is weird ‘cos I used to be better at lighting in DS than Poser, now it is the other way around.  Guess I need to practice more. ^o^

Most of the time I use a regular 3-distance light setup, much like old poser default but all white instead of that icky brown.  If I want to use AO I will switch out my 30% fill light for an uber environment light at like 20% intensity to add the AO but not really effect the shadows or specular effect I already had.

Yeah, I tend to use a Poser-style three light setup too, mainly shades of grey unless I want a ‘warmer’ or more colourful effect.  Getting the right balance between surface detail and sheen seems more difficult in DS these days, and shadows are often too dark/rough.  I’ll try some low-intensity uber environments, maybe that’s the answer, though I hate waiting even fifteen minutes for a render these days….....smile  Must say I’m liking that DS4.5 renders faster!

Another play with some metals and a gemstone used as a fabric.

You know, she definitely should have a gem studded to her bellybutton… I totally love this picture, and yesss, I fully intend to put the gem shaders into use in ways unimagined. :D

Oh yeah, they’re tons and tons of uses for this pack.
