Re: Reality/Luxrender updates and/or status(?)

I'll leave the Reality part for Paolo to respond to, since I have no idea what his plans are. Development on Luxrender has been very slow for a while, but not completely stalled. Next version was planned to be a major release 1.7, but this has not yet been released and meanwhile the entire Luxrender...

Re: Reality materials not showing up on a saved project

Strange.
Anyway you can perform a delete followed by ctrl-z on each of them and they should appear in Reality. Any previous Reality material changes will be lost however (basically a total reset of the object).

Re: Daz Studio update woes

No suggestions. But I'm guessing it was only a matter of time, before Reality 2.5 would eventually become incompatible. I believe that Paolo has ended support for it a long time ago.

Re: Converted Material to Light, how to return it to material?

In the lights tab you can mark the light that your object was turned into and click the button "Convert to material". This usually does not work, if you have saved the scene, and reloaded it. In that scenario you can simply select the object in DS and use Delete followed by ctrl-z. This wi...

Re: Using Daz's HD Features

thanks for the info Sigstan :!: am wondering why you mentioned this "Luxrender is using a simple loop algorithm for subdivision and this is basically unfit for use on characters. You can still use it together with displacement for objects or for example on hair" was that an answer to me a...

Re: All presets have vanished

This should only ever happen in a situation where an installation of Reality was not completed for some reason. If you are using Windows you can check directory C:\Users\<your user>\Documents\Pret-a-3D\Reality. This is where the Reality presets are stored. Every time you perform a Reality installati...

Re: Foam and Suds Presets

hmm, that is a tough one. It will require more than just material settings. One way would be to use geometry shells with suitable foam and transparency textures to emulate the stuff and I guess the trick is to find good textures to use. If you are proficient in Blender or other modelling tools you m...
