Re: Genesis 8

I probably should have specified I was using the Victoria 8 model

Re: Genesis 8

Does anyone else have issues with rendering and eyebrows? It works fine in IRay, but not in Reality, even with the preset. I'm just using the base figure and a basic pose.

Re: N.G.S. Anagenessis 2 - Revolution

How does it look when rendered in LuxRender compared with the default Iray presets most new models use? I find some models don't work as well when using the Iray textures applied and find 3delight to luxrender conversion can work better

Open CL on macOS

Potentially good news for OpenCL on macOS. Apple looking for an OpenCL software engineer. Perhaps a Metal to OpenCL translation toolkit or even OpenCL 2 on macOS. I have a MacBook Pro myself, but found a PC works much better for rendering. http://arstechnica.co.uk/apple/2016/09/apple-mac-nvidia-gpu-...

Re: Textures getting lost (help please?)

I've had the same problem with cloud content, could that be worked around in a Reality update? I have a couple of cloud only products that will not work in Reality since they can't be installed via DIM. Does it assume the base folder the content is in is the default one set in DAZ/DIM and store the ...

Re: Light Strategies in Luxcore

Just a quick question - could you change the light strategy on an already partly rendered file? For instance, do uniform for an hour or so, then change to one of the others? Perhaps for doing a test to see which lights you may want to use for a long render in case you aren't quite sure what to start...

Re: G3F and Iray skins

That's helpful, should try it and experiment more. Though I find it is easier to use the 3Delight shader for the model and tweak that. Would be nice to have more presets in future, not just V7, for the other main DAZ Genesis 3 characters at least.

Re: Lips have no color

What settings are used for adding more of a shine to lips? I tried increasing glossiness (to 9500), but it didn't seem to make much difference. Also, since the product is a DAZ Connect one, so when I load the scene again, the textures don't get loaded in Reality, since it looks like the path is stor...

Re: Lips have no color

Setting subdivision to 1 in modifiers has improved the smoothing for me

Re: Lips have no color

Same result with aliasing regardless of acceleration mode chosen. If I render at higher resolution, then scale down, it is OK
