    btw did I show you guys my summer project for G3F her name is Abony representing West African origin  , it is just W.I.P as only head morph is finished for now , modeled with Zbrush , rendered with Iray  

    I hope you like 

    Indeed, I like! This will be a great addition to the character pool.

    I checked everything , tried many of software even for custom light , manual editing but not way to change the angle 

    beside angle you still have shadows to edit so not just  light .

    Since IES profiles are spherical based they perform best on point light or geometric sphere , the DS IES profile use only light and  shadow maps so not full setting from the profile 

    I guess the only way for now is to change the direction of the prop light or point light on X rotation -90  for all IES profile , since there are so many different types of IES profiles 

    save your light shader prop or point light as standard light already rotated and use it for your base IES profile lighting will be much easier

    I even wrote couple of my own IES profiles today but all I could change was the angle of light  and shadows , not the angle of the source light what is in center of the sphere with the main beam at the angle of X 90 in DS by default , there is a normal switched MDL block under Iray that could to the trick and change the angle

    If someone get smart and create plugin for DS that convert IES profile into light source as other programs have  then will be different story  and the best solution 

    btw here is one of the funky result when I was making custom ies profiles 

    the first is kind of ring light ( side light are caustics that render faster indoor light shader emitters than without caustic on  ) you see for bulb maybe  not so good with the direction but for other kind of light source it is actually perfect at X -0.0 like windows , light panels or sun light simulation with IES profile 

    Thanks for trying!   Maybe Daz can do something about it in the next release........

    I saw these on your new Twitter feed. Abony is beautiful. Will she be for sale at some point? Hint, hint...

    Also, what hair are you using in these images? The first and third remind of of Omri, (a hair I don't have,) but I don't recognize the one in the middle... Would it be one of your own? Regardless, it's really nice and complements Abony's face well.

    Maybe they did already but you know the programmers are always ahead from what we get .. but the best option would be "Convert IES Profile to light "' where you have all option included , now loading just ies profile all it do is loading light and shadow maps , no light power , lumens and other stuff , it would be more accurate and much esier to use for everyone

    Thanks Anita !  the all stuff on her I made in Zbrush  including the hair and she wearing V7 base skin textured with edited shader but the eyebrows are slightly too low for Abony making her looking little bossy, I am not yet in process of building textures for her as I need to finish the rest of the realistic body first , she will have own hair collection and skin and clothing so full bundle starter for the middle summer release and after partner for her in the same style

    Thanks, yes when the time is for her own tread  .. and she have all own new materials , I just testing stuff between to see if I am going into the right directions 

    with the modeling as it is far from the base so totally reworking base G3F , as I want a real looking model to the last millimeter , and she have all 100% human proportions on the head already 

    I am doing other characters between and switching also making her partner and other  older characters 

    here is sculpt from Zbrush of Abony head from different angles without textures 

    and also my older character in making as some of you saw on my twitter account early

    Wow this character is awesome!  I am budgeting this year carefully. I hope to have money when woods and skins and beards go to market.  :)

    I hope too not to miss more of those alien skin freebies, James Bones freebies, St Patricks greenies etc.

    But what I long is to see this hair available 

    How could I miss that jewel too crying

  • MEC4DMEC4D Posts: 5,249

    Yeah We are not allowed to post direct links to other websites  , if you want the freebie tonight just send me private message there so I can reply with the download link

    Twitter says I can't send you a private message because you don't follow me, I just signed up for Twitter this morning and have no clue what I am doing lol

  • barbultbarbult Posts: 22,857

    As much as I love all MEC4D things, I decided I didn't want to sign up for yet another social media thingy to take up my time and track my activity. I'm not on FB either. The Daz forum already sucks away every free moment! cheeky So I'll sadly have to miss out. sad My absence is by no means a lack of interest in what Cath is doing, it is simply a feeble attempt to keep life sane.

  • MEC4DMEC4D Posts: 5,249

    Fixed .. got ya !

    I don't know...I must be a fail at Social media because I tried to send a private message and it just keeps saying my message can't be sent...go figure frown

  • MEC4DMEC4D Posts: 5,249

    It was not about that , I don't have FB either , it was for people that do have account already and I want to thanks them for the support  , I try to make more  buzz so the pirated product torments get suppressed by more posts from me in search engines . In the first week of my product release I lost 69K to illegal downloads , how standalone Artis can survive it if bad people killings you slowly without even thinking what they really do to us individual Artists and true customers that have to pay the higher product prices because of that , it is depressing ..

  • MEC4DMEC4D Posts: 5,249

    Done!

    Thank you for your help.

    btw Abony is not only beautiful but also so real! Love the older man too! Your work is impressive.

    Wow that is quite a difference. I spent a while in zbrush yesterday trying to model bodies, think I'll practice on some heads now myself. I saw the new Captain America movie and I'd like to make a portrait of Chris Evans haha
