Reading the RUG

I have a great deal to learn about texturing and color theory, and want to master Reality, so I'm hitting the books and starting with primitives. Page 94 of the RUG includes a step that reads: Click on the Texture Type drop down menu and select Color Math . The Color Math texture provides two slots,...

Re: Replicating V7's Iray Makeup in Reality

If you are loading materials presets, like make up options in Studio, then that is fine. But if you need to tweak the result of Reality, then use the Reality Material Editor exclusively. It will be faster, more precise, and easier. That's what I'm doing. I load the material presets for the makeup i...

Re: Replicating V7's Iray Makeup in Reality

I called Reality before changing anything in DAZ, and then changed the Diffuse and increased the Gloss in Reality. Then, I went back to DAZ to change the Diffuse for the Iray example.

Re: Replicating V7's Iray Makeup in Reality

I want the lips a similar shade of red with an equal level of gloss, but when I try your suggestion, I get wildly different results. In this example, I've changed the Diffuse color in DAZ and Reality to an RGB value of 255,0,0, and increased the Glossy channel in Reality to 9500. Here's what it look...

Replicating V7's Iray Makeup in Reality

I've been fiddling with this for about an hour and can't figure it out. How do I replicate V7's Iray makeup in Reality? DS and Reality are using the same maps, but none of the texture settings are getting translated in Reality. iray-makeup.jpg reality-makeup.png iray-face.jpg iray-lips.jpg reality-f...

Re: Working with Clothes

Great questions. I did use Velvet for the Austrani Pants. The reason was simple: Velvet seemed like a good material for the pants. The rest was hours and hours of testing all kind of values for warp and weft, number of vertical and horizontal repetitions, and so on. Hope this helps. It does, thanks...

Working with Clothes

Paolo, I posed this question on your DA page, but think everyone could benefit from the discussion, so I'm posting it here instead. As stunning as the new Austrani outfit preset looks, it begs a question I've had since the release of Reality 4.2.1, and finally figured out how to put into words. Most...

Re: Victoria 7 Automatic preset on sale now!

I bought a copy during the sale and gave it a whirl tonight, rendering her au naturale. I dare say, she looks more realistic in Reality than with her stock mats in Iray, and even better than with a few add-ons I've seen from DAZ PA's, including the IG Iray Essentials I bought, last July. One particu...
