Missing Universal Presets

Postby N-RArts » Tue Jan 29, 2019 5:32 pm

Hi.

I've posted about this on the Daz Forums. So I thought I would post about it here too, just in case anyone who could help, doesn't go to/use the Daz Forums.

First of all, I just want to say how much I LOVE the Reality plugin.

I've been converting a room for use with Reality 4, and it has quite a bit of wood included in different parts of the room. Until now, I've only been using the basic material types glossy, cloth, metal, velvet, null, etc (the ones that appear when you right click the item in the Reality materials window).

So I had a look around the net to see if there were anymore materials or anyway to add more materials, and I found a page on Pret-a-3D's site which was a tutorial about Universal Presets. Especially a latex shader.

I had a look at the Universal Shader presets on my computer and it's "missing" presets for Ceramic, Liquid, Plastic, Skin, Wood.

Does anyone else have this, or have I messed up the installation?

Oh and what is the "Null" Preset for?

Thanks for any help ^^


I've attached images to try and help give you a better idea of the problem(s) that I'm having.

Hi.

It could be an installation issue. Can you try re-installing Reality? No need to uninstall, just run the installer again and make sure to point it to the same location where Reality is now.

Cheers.

Correct. These Universal shader categories has never had any content as far as I remember.

That would explain it then.

I installed Reality to my other computer, and those presets are empty too. I've also tried re-installing several times, and the presets are still blank/empty.

Oh well. Thanks for the help everyone.
