Bigger material preview

Postby Shinteo » Thu Mar 22, 2018 1:22 am

How do I increase the size of the material preview window in Daz3d's reality?

As far as i know, it is a fixed size. so no bigger preview.
this would be funny if it weren't happening to me :shock:

That's a pity. It's so tiny I can't use it to preview much. Which kinda defeats the purpose.

But then you have to load the rest of the scene too. I wish there was a pop-up preview window instead.

It isn't great, but it's pretty useable if you know what to look for. I usually keep the "sphere" selected because that shows light hitting at various angles. As you play with spec/glossy/bump, you can clearly see how the reflections change. Back in the day, the various body part "mannequins" (my term) would show up automatically (i.e., for V4), which was nice, but that feature wasn't updated for the newer genesis figures.
