Enabling HD morphs for V7

I know it's been discussed (mostly on the old RDNA forum) but I'm still confused: what settings do I need in DS and in Reality to render V7 with her HD morphs turned on? Setting subdiv=2 in DS and not touching subdiv in Reality (i.e., leaving it at default, zero) for the skin seems to do something b...

Having lots of fun with this version and wondering when the (new) features announced in Luxrender 1.6 might make their way to Reality :)

Re: generic presets and Reality 4.3

I'm pretty sure that this behavior can be attributed to the fact that before launching Reality, we typically loading materials using a poser .pz2 pose file and people do all sorts of crazy stuff in those MAT files. In fact, it is instructive to look at the surface settings and maps in detail before ...

Re: generic presets and Reality 4.3

Ok, I will redo my generic homebrew. :) Not sure why we are not supposed to tweak these settings... Along with the iris specularity, the lip bump almost always comes in way too high. So, I lower it way down and it looks much better in virtually all cases.

Re: generic presets and Reality 4.3

Thanks. Remind me where that db resides, and if it's human-readable :) I had changed some of the v4 defaults using the generic preset save because I was getting tired of making the same tweaks every time. For example, the V4 iris typically loads in Reality at glossiness of 9800 and specular of 062:0...

generic presets and Reality 4.3

I switched to Reality 4.3 as soon as I could get my hands on it. :) Haven't had too much time to play, but am wondering about the following. I didn't care for the generic v4 settings that came with the earlier version of Reality, so I tweaked them and saved my version as generic. This worked well fo...

Re: Reality and DS 4.9.2

Thanks. And I presume I can ignore or turn off the Daz Connect nonsense as I prefer manual control whenever possible. Is that right?

Reality and DS 4.9.2

I'm still using DS 4.8, but considering taking the plunge to 4.9.2. Does Reality work without problem with the new version? Thanks.

Re: material troubles

Oh, I assumed that would just overwrite the previous save. You're right, this seems pretty quick. Thanks.
