Experimental Ghost Shader for Iray in DAZ Studio 4.8

http://www.sharecg.com/v/80867/browse/7/Material-and-Shader/DS-4.8-Iray-Ghost-Shader


Tip: Use a negatively dialed geoshell to avoid shining through eyes and mouth; apply shader to geoshell, too.

Tip Two: If you are using hair, or anything that has transparencies, apply the matching transparency map to Cutout Opacity (set to 1). This is what I did for the mane, fesslocks and tail in the promo image.

    You're welcome. :-)
    I'll probably add more colors than the greenish shader to it, but I have to find out what color shade works, and what not.

    Thank you , work like charm

  • I am not sure I got it right about the negatively dialed geoshell... Can you be a bit more specific please? (New to DS)

    outstanding

  • I can't seem to get it to affect clothing, and hair.  And it's so faint?  Is there something that I can turn up to make it more "Vapor cloud" like?

    Oh cool - this looks awesome!!

    When you apply it what exactly are you applying it to?

    For it to affect clothing, you need to select the clothes and the surfaces for them and apply it specifically to the clothing, separate from the figure...same with the hair.   Then you need to manually insert and transparency maps into the Cutout Opacity channel in the respective surfaces.

    To change its 'density' play around with the Refraction and Translucency weights.

    Seriously, what does "negatively dialed" mean?

    Does it mean that the geoshell is by default scaled to 100%, and that I should change that to -100%?

    Insider terminology like this drives me nuts.

    A new Geometry Shell has a Push Modifier applied, expanding or contracting by an amount set in cm - so presumably the suggestion is to apply a negative offset to the modifier.

    So what is the name of the dial that i need to make negative called?

    I don't have access to my computer that has Daz Studio on it right now, but I think the dial is called "Offset".

    Also, my experiments wth using the geoshell to dim the eyes and mouth failed. The suggested trick doesn't work for me.

    Mesh Offset.
