Some of those superfly and Iray PBR shaders can get pretty complex. I mean talking Node spaghetti !


Surface Painter uses pbr nodes to texture surfaces, they get interesting to make.
Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

In order to get a photoreal render, you must use Iray in DAZ or Superfly in Poser.
Ah! So it's not another render engine, just one way to use one or another. I have my own ideas concerning that, which are as follows. Every render engine is only as good as the person using it. If that person does not know all that is needed to render a photoreal image, the image is more than likely not going to look photoreal. I've seen many Images done using Iray and Superfly, and the vast majority have fallen short of looking like photos, even though the intent was to do a photoreal image. From what I understand, there is a lot of work that one must do to achieve the goal of rendering a photoreal image. It is why there are different shaders in DAZ Studio for the 3DL and the Iray render engines, and why lighting is done differently between the two. As I understand it, there are also special materials made for Iray, because most 3DL materials won't look right rendered in Iray.


All that said, I use 3DL because I can get really close to photoreal by working with my lighting and materials. And the 3DL shaders are not bad at all. Many of them are photoreal in their own right.
DAZ Studio, Bryce, Poser, Wings 3D, Howler, Blender, PSP, Hexagon, MSO PowerPoint & Word, just a few of the programs I use.

Hmmm, speaking of dialed morphs? Well I have quite a few, and I can come up with a lot of very different looking characters, with little to no mesh distortions. Yes a few are made in ZBrush, which I do not have by the way, but most of the morphs I have are dialed ones. A couple of mine are ZBrush Dialed morphs. You inject them and then tweak them with the new dials they add to get the different possibilities, which admittedly will be within a certain range of looks.

Sounds like you're doing an Iray render? Or maybe Superfly? 9GB of textures? That's way more than I ever use. I have to wonder how you got that much into a scene?

By being insane?  Yep, IRay.  Originally I had 7 figures in it.  The machine just shut down.  So, I cut it back to 4.  Only 9 GB.  Aelin is right -- those textures are killer.

Just so.  Right as usual, Ray.

Hmmm. Not familiar with that one. I suppose I should ask what application the render is originating from?

Yep, not fond of waiting for renders to figure themselves out. I wish I had a second PC, one to render with, one for other stuff.

Which is what I managed to do last year, we have ye ole beast of a system for that and a POS for everything else
