Depth of Field Tutorials?

MoogeeMoogee Posts: 28

Hello All, 

Can anyone point me in the direction of some good DoF tutorials staring from scratch for Studio? I was previously using Riversofts DoF but for some reason - since the last studio update I think - its not playing ball, even after installing and reinstalling (even manually). I'm looking for a really newbee tutorial so I can make sure all bases are covered.

Many thnaks

    Does the Riversoft tool give any error messages? How about if you check the end of the log file just after trying to use it (Help>Troubleshooting>View Log File)?

    Hello Richard, 

    It givers an error message and to check the log file but most of the time it refers to a file I haven't opened on a different date. Just tried it now and the log file says:

    2024-03-14 23:55:37.503 Iray [INFO] - IMAGE:IO ::   1.0   IMAGE  io   info : Loading image "C:\Users\andre\Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Daz Connect Library\data\cloud\1_62731\runtime\textures\jepe\jp roderick g8m\jp_roderickarmsb01_1004.jpg", no selector, pixel type "Rgb", 4096x4096x1 pixels, 1 miplevel.

    So it isn't even showing todays date.

    It does look as if you are installing with Daz Connect (through Daz Studio) - the script itself does not, as I recall, work like that; I am not sure about the content it is set to work on.

    Thanks for the heads up Shimrian. I watched one of Jays tut's about transfering the characters from one Genesis generation to another. He's a really good teacher.
