Made with the artist in mind
The best realism possible for DAZ Studio and Poser with the easiest, most enjoyable workflow. Nothing else comes close.
Reality is a rendering solution that extends DAZ Studio and Poser providing the most advanced Physics-Based Rendering system in the market.
Reality has built-in physics-based materials. At any time you know what kind of material your editing.
Up to 20x faster rendering
Since 2010 Reality has been the benchmark of realism for DAZ Studio and Poser. With version 4.1 it’s also extremely fast. CPU rendering is up to 20 times faster and the new GPU-based rendering is blazingly fast.
If your computer has a modern OpenCL-compatible GPU you can render using that device as well. With OpenCL you can use GPUs from any vendor, including AMD and nVidia. And you can use all the cores of your CPU plus the any number of GPU devices at the same time.
Reality detects your system hardware automatically and it will tell you if OpenCL is available for rendering
Definitely a plug-in worth investing in.
This release is absolutely brilliant. Heaps of improvements and I’m loving it. The accuracy of material translation and speed improvements leave me feeling like I’m forgetting to do something every time I render. It’s just become so smooth and fast it seems almost a built-in part of Poser.
Power at your fingertips
You can change the type of a material with with one click. Here we see how simple is to select photo-realistic Glass.
Reality automatically converts Poser and DAZ Studio materials, including the latest shaders. From the moment you call Reality you are ready to go.
Reality’s physics-based materials are a snap to use and you can count on the following types, all included in the program:
Fantastic material presets
Reality includes a great library of presets including great Car Paint, Metals, Latex, Gemstones and more.
I have no idea of how I would have created this image without Reality. It took no time at all to set up the mirror (one click to change the material setting) and the rest of the time was spent on composition.
I just don’t know what to say… amazing!
Not only do I get results so much (unbelievably) quicker, the interface and workflow is so much easier.
Rendering without limits
Reality renders your scene via an external app, so that you can go back to Studio or Poser while the image renders in the background. You can continue making changes to your scene as much as you want, or even start a new scene. You can also stop the render and restart it hours later and it will resume exactly from where it was stopped. This is rendering without limits.
No “spaghetti” shaders
Ever looked at a node system and got discouraged by its complexity? We understand the feeling. There are no nodes in Reality, no unwieldy list of parameters. Reality materials are simple. They use less technical terms and few properties. You still get all the power of an advanced material editor, just without the aggravation of those other systems.
Change the light intensity while rendering
Ever found that you spent minutes waiting for a render just to find out that one light needed adjusting? With Reality you can make that correction on the spot, while the image is rendering. Thanks to the power of LuxRender you can change intensity and color of the lights while the image is still rendering. The same for the overall brightness of the image. No need to re-render.
Freedom of choice
Reality supports both DAZ Studio and Poser, both OS X and Windows. Each license gives you access to the OS X and Windows version. Both 32- and 64-bit systems are supported as well.
Reality resolved all the issues I’ve had with other rendering solutions. I’m especially happy about all the time it frees up for me where I previously would spend countless hours setting up the most elaborate nodes to get decent results (rendering in Blender Cycles). Honestly, my renders have never looked this good.
Awesome Product of course, for Poser and DS, I have them both, for many years now!
