License Invalidating on Very Long Image Names

After a year of the Reality license being stable, it invalidated itself three times this morning. The issue seems to be caused by very long name for the image. As in, nine words. Names that long are extremely uncommon for art renders, but I'm running involved skin tests. Every time I changed a word ...

Re: Unable to load an automatic preset.

Gotcha. I see what you're saying. If you change the diffuse map in DS, then Reality will default. It just does that since it has nothing to work with. You have to create a new, separate preset for each diffuse map set you use, such as Solje' dark side, Solje' trill, Solje' vampire. Then, Reality wil...

Re: Unable to load an automatic preset.

I keep seeing things in your original post that I didn't answer. Forget searching within the DAZ Forums! Their search engine isn't sophisticated enough to handle specific questions. Use Google or Bing. Try a search like "DAZ Create New Materials Preset." Chances are very good that will giv...

Re: Unable to load an automatic preset.

Neither Studio nor Reality care about morphs for Materials and Shader Presets. The only time you'll need to consider them is if you save a Character or Shaping Preset. In fact, a Character Preset will save every cotton picking thing about the character (maps, RGB settings, morphs, etc). You can recr...

Re: Unable to load an automatic preset.

Based on your post, it sounds like you mean creating a preset within Studio, instead of Reality. Theoretically, that ought to work with no hassle. This is how I create a preset: 1. Select the character (after all my tweaking is done). 2. Click File -> Save As -> Materials Preset 3. Type in Name 4. A...

How Do I Use HDR Files?

I just picked up some free HDR files from HDRMaps.com. For the life of me, I don't remember what to do next.

Don't they have to be converted or unpacked?

Re: Skin Geograft Rendering issue on Lekkulion

I'll also take a stab ... Check the gain and gamma settings for your specular and topcoat maps for the geografts. Some will be at gain of 1 and gamma of 2.2, others may be at gain of .5 and gamma of 1. And you will get a few at a gain of 1.1, which really throws things off. Gain is a matter of perso...
