is it worth it to try to learn color balancing, or does everyone just use premade filters for their renders? i feel like post-render editing is inevitable to get a more "professional" looking render, but i can't tell if the images i see on pixiv that look really good are the results of meticulous editing, or simply put through a filter
>>95958130% of rendering is Daz the rest is post
god why are all daz models so fucking ugly? I could land an airplane on the space between her eyes.
>>959744Lack of anatomy acknowledgment from vendors or devs from wegs.
If I have a voluptuos model, the clothes will almost always clip. The clothing morphs won't help much, dForce is a 50/50 shot (and for some reason, clothing with straps just go down) and smooting iterations are also a 50/50 shot. Am I missing something? How come coomers that render gigantic tits don't have this problem?
>Make lewd posters >Use blender for everything>Really want to use a specific character>Only a Daz model exists>Port it to blender, looks weird and buggy in Blender though>Lower myself to using Daz just for the model>Program is so easy that I didn't even need help except for googling twice because the UI doesn't hate the user and wants him to kill himself, as the Blender UI does>Looks just as good as a Blender poster>Looks just as good as a Blender posterHave I been fucking memed? Sure Blender has so many more things but I literally just want to make posters bro damn
>>959796look into ManFriday's Mesh Grabber, you can grab the parts of the mesh that are clipping and move them manually. typically i use morphs and mesh smoothing as a base, then use mesh grabber to fine tune problem areas
>>959801Daz is good at exactly one thing and it's what you used it for. Some people will say the renders times are too long but those people are poor.
>>959801If your intent has always been just to pose a premade model then yes you have been memed. If your intent was to learn 3d then no, all the legit 3d programs are hard to learn, blender is actually a little on the more intuitive side(at least since 2.8)
Sorta sister thread?>>>/aco/7470187
>>959817>Some people will say the renders times are too longThey are compared to other render engines and even against other programs with the same engine.
>>959801Daz is Ze Doll Posing software. It is made to pose dolls. In skirts. Doing stuff. In two clicks.Animation is beyond terrible, 3d tools are retarded when existent, it's not a full fledged 3d software, but if you want to pose dolls, in skirts, doing stuff, it's the best. It's Ze Playing With Dolls tool.You've definitely been memed on, because ````Real 3d ``artist'' ''''' millenials hate Daz for being a doll posing software, but as it happens, I remember quite well a time when we all used Poser to pose our dolls in our shitty raytracing renders back in the day. In 1998. Having a software specializing in doll posing is natural, and having the same software used to pose pin-up and futa cumflation all the way through sex is only the next step from step 1.The people who told you you could do everything in Blender clearly never rendered something in PovRay with an export from Poser.
>>959957I think those "real 3d artists" copers are more of a doomer thing. If there's one thing I noticed from daz, it's every generation user is the same. You see young people just getting into this making celeberity clones and older users making the tanndest bimbo futa's not meant for the average viewer. Daz bros tend to be pretty friendly too. They know what they are. Actual big name artists dont even mind poser/daz, so I cant tell where the hate for the softwares comes from.
>>959980No silly dazlet, it's not a doomer thing.With daz you can pick a character put on clothes put in a backgorund add lights and render. That is what it is for.Maya, Blender, Max, Zbrush, etc. are the tools to make any 3D thing you can imagine and you can do everything daz can but with more control and options.If all you want is pose a woman and make a render, than there is no need to learn all the complicated shit necessary to do that in Maya or any other equivalent program.It's the ease of use of the content library that makes it successful. It's meant to be quick drag and drop character, hair, clothes, pose, backdrop, light setup and render. Still there is no single aspect of the daz program that isn't inferior to most 3D creation software.
>>959983I know. That's not what I was saying.
>>959957Speaking of daz as a software, I can't believe the actual ui hasn't changed much from pre release. Character creator 3 surprisingly has even worse ui if you can believe it.
Is there any good communities, servers, forums, etc. Made specifically to help DAZ NSFW artists? Tips, tricks, questions, renders, image sharing, model sharing or the like, or is this the best we've got? I'm trying to improve my game
>>959801I still pose in Blender when I wanna use a model that either doesn't exist for Daz or has a worse model in Daz. Other than that I don't see a reason to use Blender for it>>959986What's wrong with the Daz UI?
>>959986There's nothing, really, to change. It's one of the less painful and more intuitive UI out there. A large part of the appeal for noobs.At least for primary functions. I hate that some advanced stuff is hidden behind literally 8 steps and submenus going into submenus that you can only find by clicking on two secret pixels on some circumstances when you do the ritual right, but I'm pretty sure it could be solved by an "advanced" tab that really should exist.Now that I think about it, Daz has really accumulated quite a depth through the years, though most is so painfully tucked away it's a surprise people still remember it exists.
A black knight with her demonic minions.Your move, hero?Long time no see, btw.
>>960061Ah, the kiddies renderer.It's not an amazon if it's a kid, etc, etc. Long time no see. I like the freckles on that one. Have you, perhaps, thought of rendering something else than a small child with a sword surrounded by rape monsters?
>>960089I don't think she looks like a small child. What do you want, muscle-bound giantesses?
Anyone with any experience rendering with a mobile 4090 (16gb)?Might get my employer to pa for a laptop with one.How does it compare to the desktop cards and to older mobile cards?

Why do daz users watermark such horrid things?
So what's the best pussy? I tried them all and they all sucks in their own way. And they all deformed horribly when posing, specifically with the thigh bend/side side poses.NGV8 is the least sucks but still.Any tips or advices, guys?
>>960447>they all sucks in their own wayWelcome to Daz Studio
Hey Emma anon are you there?I have been messing around with marvelous designer and its alright but the meshes are such a mess with shit topology.Its good for still image I guess, but isn't simple cloth pro- a blender addon much better? Because it produces clean quad meshes.
>>960516was it autism?
anyone know a hair that looks like this. especially the widows peak. Trying to make a spooky render.
>>960410>Daz mocap videosDaz is capable of mocap?!
>>960263Oh noes, rebel fighters sighted.
>>960705Damn, no kidding.
Whenever I mention Daz, I get barf emojis. Why do people hate Daz so much?
>>960785I would guess easy to use -> noobs and artlets use it to produce horrifying and frequently pornographic monstrosities -> the software becomes associated with low-skilled degenerates

Anyone know what Character is being used in Jerry Jang's Products on Daz3D shop?https://www.daz3d.com/jerry-jang#filtered=1
>>961077I have seen this character preset/morph and texture being used by a few other artists in the past but never figured out which product it came from
>>961012You aren't one of those people who spam daz users for free vn work are you?
>>961088Oh, no I don't generally talk to daz or 3d people much. I'm more of a traditional art guy, but I really like some of the stuff that our barbarian friend is doing, so I thought it was worth reaching out to him. If we can do business, then that's good, but if it doesn't work out then that's okay. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
>>960265What hair is that? I'm trying to recreate her with the devandan version
>>961159The scalp and head look like Mega Updo Hair 2, however the bangs and bun don't match but I'm 99% sure the scalp/head part is Mega Updo

>haven't posted in 6 monthsdang. well, finally got my girl ported to 8.1, just in time for 9 lmao.
>>961218Damn that's a good one but I feel like it's a dforce classic touched up in photoshop>>961219cute freckles lets see some more!
>>960265>>961159>>961193Pony Knots with all but the bangs disabled seems serviceable but its not exactly the same quality as the mega updo.
gonna do her makeup next, maybe some face detail.
>>961249Interesting evolution of the character.
>>961241>touched up in photoshoplooks more like some heavy use of denoising.
>>961250Dunno if getting fat is considered 'evolution' even in the everyday kinda way people throw around that term.
>>961276needs to reroute the fat to the tits
because of SD, I don't use daz anymore, Stable Diffusion is not perfect at all but it will improve very fastIt was a good story with Daz but I'm done with it
>>961314now do the same character, but facing left and holding a cup.
>>961314If you're just gonna make solo vanilla pinups, you were never welcome in the Daz club anyway.
>>961314absolute no clue about AI ^^ SD will remain at the same level for a long time and improve only marginally - is not so difficult to understand what AI is and what is not
>>961314it can only do basic bitch pinups. And that's with loras and specific models that make everything look samey anyway. It's not even close to adequate yet.
>>961315it would be very easy with control net, are you a moron ?
>>961330ohhh, what I'm I gonna do without you ???? KEKwhat I'm waiting for now : better hands detection, better flexibility in the poses, new or better controlnet modulesLora are excellent btw
>>961339>it can only do basic bitch pinups?
>>961331Midjourney and Dall E are far better for hand drawing, no reason SD will not improve in the same way later.this is pityfull, don't stay with DAZ, it's a regression
>>961330>you were never welcome in the Daz club anyway.sob
>>961379Are you the guy who's every render was a woman bound to a post getting fucked by a guy who looks like Vladimir Putin?
>>961382yes maybe not :D
>>961394no, it's not me
>>961396yes, it is me
>>961374>it would be very easy with control netwell, i'm waiting.
>>961399I didn't used contrelnet after all, just added "she holds a cup"
>>961402I didn't use *
>>961402And her necklace suddenly disappeared and tiara changed shape
What tricks and tips can a poor daz user use in order not to take 42 hours rendering? I'm thinking using images as backgrounds instead of full environments but is there a way to make it work without it looking completely retarded? Maybe rendering the model first then the background and compositing in photoshop? Any tips will help
>>961407I didn't use adetailer, now with adetailer
>>961406you need controlnet for that, but it's not very important, I make oneshots
>post a nipple>get deleted>fill up the thread with ai slop>not a jannie in sightneat.
>>961378yep basic bitch stuff. Just women standing around. It's not dynamic or customizable at all for camera angles, lighting, interactions etc.
>>961408Use HDRI to light up your characters, then render the background separately and Photoshop and blur to remove imperfections.
>>961427yes, it's because I didn't use controlnet...I used controlnet for this one for example, and you chose the type of light of course :
Does anybody know what assets this is?
Is there a way to convert genesis 9 clothes to Genesis 8?
>>961469The top clothing is Starlight Queen, no idea about the hair and the leg bands.
>>961476Either search how to make clones for autofit or download mmx autoclones asset.Makes 90% of hair and clothes work.
>>961408Um, keep the scene small enough to fit on your GPU.
>>961410You don't do anything. You prompt and pray. You think this looks good but it doesn't. If your art was at parity with daz or blender or maya or even live2d, you would be making millions. Why are you not making millions generating 'one shots'? Is it because a series of non-sequitur imaging isn't beneficial to anybody. You think maybe, that a portfolio, no matter how labored and detailed, means nothing if that person can't reproduce and expand on a single idea. If you really thought your AI art was worth sharing, you'd make something of it and show your family, colleagues, peers. But you don’t. You spam a daz thread with your blurry garbage.
>>961402nice hands lol
Seriously, continue selling your AI shit for coomers on F## and go away.
I am looking for some inspiration.Who is the most beautiful premade daz character?The ones I like the most right now are PD Gloria by P3Dand Gertha by Sangriart, unlike most daz characters she actually has a decent face when viewed in profile.
>>961629Dazlets, use SD to inpaint your horrible faces
And I'm not even talking about other things that neutralnetworks can do, like deepfake of character from a single render
>>961673>>961675What's with her manfeet?Is this the true power of Genesis 9?
>MFW its time for someone to use a new image host.
>>961640This is relative, maybe some characters that I find interesting you might not like.For example, I see a VN "dev" fall in love with a shit char.
>>961640One-inch loli futa cocks.
>>961697I will never get why they don't use a different host.
>>961640For some reasons, 60% of all Daz figures' faces are big lipped heart shaped bimbo with lips like they want to suck you cock raw and gulp all the sperm. 20% are ugly tryhards manfaces "I did something else for a change", when that something else is ugly. The last 20% are east european faces with that kind of overlong thin mouths that some people find attractive for some reasons, and it's not overdone, mind you, there is only approximately only 180 gen8 figures doing the same thing.Another 20% for asian faces. That's more than 100% but asian faces are for extras and people that like them.Eyes of the beholder is in the beauty, that kind of stuff, so just browse a large amount of figures until you don't find one that is 1., 2., 3., or 4.
>>961758There are 2 DAZ character "artists" who don't show signs of being mentally ill or doing drugs, HID3D and Vicey3D. P3D has few ok faces, digitaltouch if you are into asian bimbo stuff. Also, DAZ has 0 decent black characters.Anyway, using actual 3d rendered faces for finished render is obsolete, what you should do is facescan a photo into gen8 figure, apply separate fix to degoblinize it, apply skin texture made by someone who actually understands how Iray shading works, and then roop the original photo or inpaint in SD.
>>961804>Vicey3Dhas at best 2 not completely mogged looking faces.>DAZ has 0 decent black characters.Just like the real worldConsidering the lack of artists creating decent faces for Daz that is a decent approach for a final render, not to great when you want consistency or anything but a pinup render.Cherubit creates good looking faces, most of the people that do celeb look-alikes suck
tototcandy1 best celeb creator
>>961811>2 not completely mogged looking faces.Not the point. Vicey already did the work shaping the mesh and setting up basic facial proportions, and the texture is decent, so all you do is just roop the render skipping the face transfer .Not using real faces result in boring typical CGI-dolls
>>961823I only accept AI touch-ups if they have that goofy FaceApp smile.
>>961804>>961811My biggest problem with black characters is getting expressions out of them that don't morph their face into a white person wearing blackface makeup.
>>961823>typical CGI-dollsSkill issue.

Not usually into lookalikes, but she cute.
>>962610> Not usually into lookalikesMy brother in Daz, rendering real life people being destroyed by monsters to the point they ahegao is what Daz was created for
>>962613Nah. Imitating real people doubles the uncanniness. Daz is for making generic beautiful women. Trying to be more specific only makes it more obvious you've made a fabrication.
i just want my depressed, sleep-deprived detectivefu to be happy
>>962655Take off that top
>>962680you will have to try harder than that
>>962705That other anon was right, she does look pretty round now.
>>962708??? honestly it could just be that the new model is using pbr skin.
>>962628I render lookalike celebrities being casually raped and destroyed while being mogged and mocked by generic beautiful women (as in 6'9'' redhead which huges breasts).I think of it as a satire of the current hollywood industry which values politics over arts and good looking women. It is the center of my artistic expression.
>>962756Post them anywhere?
>>962756Based, someone rewards this gentleman.
Thoughts on totocandy's stuff? I think maybe a few out of the dozens he's done are pretty good. What sort of monsters would Christina Hendricks attract? Goblin horde?
>>962773Eh. If you want some pop culture faces, put money on Redmagnet, Sokurabitch, Sangriart, Meretarded, Rendergal is doing blueberries right now, and the newcomer Scabambasibampasabamsamsa which is doing decent WoW east european people, for the moment. Don't put money on totocandy, most of what he does is very low tier in quality that only look good in one light.Basically, Totocandy is the third moron who tried to sell daz celebs faces on deviantart and the fifth moron who tried to cell daz popcult on deviantart. And unless he can prove that he's beyond utter shite, then he is utter shite.
Did someone say Celeb X Monster smut???>Scabambasibampasabamsamsa Whom? Honorable mention for HID
>>962780For now Scabambasibampasabamsamsa is doing curvy east european Tyrande, less curvy east european Sally Whitemane, and less curvy but very east european Jaina.https://www.renderhub.com/scabambaspisDecent enough.

Sorry senpai, maybe 5.0 next year!https://www.daz3d.com/all-new-updates>6 New Features for Studio 4.22> Emissive volumes> Ghost lights> New Scene workflow> Update Metadata option> Faster asset loading
>>962811>Still no albedo outputFor those who don't know, albedo is a fullbright pass that the Intel denoiser can use to tell what is noise and what isn't noise (but real textures) in the final image. It can be used to denoise 20 iterations renders and have something pretty much unrecognizable from the fully rendered image.Daz and Nvidia refuse to do albedo output, for some reasons (which is mostly selling more cards, and refusing to admit the Intel denoiser is better from the part of Nvidia, and Daz being lazy mormons).No albedo output = no downloading this shitty version. Albedo outputs now. Total albedo development.
>>962819Daz screwed over the Albedo fanbase by cancelling the Albedo 2.0 beta without even allowing users to invite friends like they said they would in January 2021 and does not deserve your financial support for these gross consumer-unfriendly practices.
>>962821Render albedo. Put albedo in your shitty software. Implement albedo. Design albedo in every button of the render tab. Create albedo third party modules. Have an albedo tag in the daz shop. Create an albedo following on twitter. Have albedo artists sing your praise. Put the non-albedo developers to death. Crucify non-albedo developers. Total albedo development.But seriously, of all the features, repeatedly refusing to implement the one that could instantly make a final render in 20 iterations because "I dun wanna" and "Nvidia" is pretty shitty. To the point some tards created scripts in the forum to do it by hands.No albedo, no download.
>>962811The official forums are always so entertaining when there is a new daz release. So many daz boomers afraid of change on their decades old PCs running windows vista.
i am totally new to daz3d. i want to get models and then export to blender to sculpt and then move to UE5 and thought i'd try using a daz3d to get 80% of the way instead of sculpting in blender from a base human.for this, is gen 8 with some add-ons like skin builder, teeth master control, unique lips for example better than gen 9 with no add-ons?i can find some add-ons to trial.
>>962844Any genesis is worthless without addons.
>>962844daz topo is built for exactly what it does, support multiple different morphs and allow posing. It is not meant for animation and it's not optimized for real time.If you want to copy some daz characters as starting points and not use their topo, I guess you could save some time.But using their topo isn't a good idea.
>>962844doesn't matter. Just get ZWrap and/or RSSY Character Converter. Convert between them in minutes any time.

New Daz update worth upgrading or is it gonna break shit?
>>962998OGRED.COM when???>>962999I dont understand the fear. Have been upgrading on day one since GF2 times without issue. Loading is faster with some scenes, items and new ghostlights seem great.
>>963006The last time I updated, 90+ scenes got fucked cause they used ghost lights. Apparently, if you use OTT, hair shit is getting corrupted. I wouldn't update
>>962984And that 900mb is a solid colour.
>>962984The requirement to be a dazlet is to be mentally ill. Otherwise you would eventually master a real 3d program. Also a special tier is people who do daz tutorials on youtube, they probably fall of their UFOs as they fly by.
>>963025To be honest they probably do this to hurt pirates who have to keep all their assets on HDD
This game is fun.
>>962811>Faster asset loadingHow much faster are we talking about?
>>963046I dont have hard numbers but it feels relatively faster. Like a "huh, that was faster than expected">>963045Wait a sec...
>>963034>To be honest they probably do this to hurt pirates who have to keep all their assets on HDDthat would be retarded, that's still an instant loss of 900mb of vram. plus, it's like 2 clicks to bring it down to 2mb.

Hi guys someone told me to delete system32 to revert my Daz version and now my computer won't boot up how do I fix?
To begin with, install all software you can into Sandboxie's separate sandbox. This way you can always nuke it without it shitting up your registry or keep a spare.
I opened the computer and I tried to "unplug and plug" the bios but the lights in the front don't even light up anymore, pls help?
Daz boomers are terribly cringe
DAZ to BLENDER TIPS PLEASEIm trying to make a Visual Novel but Iray takes forever to render in my pc, so I'm thinking I'll import the DAZ characters to Blender and render there in EEVEE, which takes a lot less time to render (I'd render with cycles but it always tell me I run out of GPU memory). I guess I'm just looking for some tips to speed up this process, maybe you know some useful tips that could help a newbie out, with quality and speed.
WHERE THE FUCK IS 5.0???
>>963467Wait for Eevee Next.
>>963467If you just want your daz characters rendered fast forget blender.There's a relatively decent daz to unreal bridge. It takes a while to get your bone orientations right if you want animation and hd subdiv offsets aren't preserved.But for your purposes it's good enough and unreal is 100x faster than blender with lumen cinematic and 5x faster with path tracing.
>>963564Vaporware for years now
Is there a product that lets you know where all files related to a figure, clothing, prop, etc is in your directory? I feel like cleaning up my library but dont want to restart. By library, I mean non DIM installed items. Stuff from third party sites.
>>963664>2023>Still no Albedo passngminot download your shitty software without albedo too
>Dolly Little clone on the zoneLETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

>>962899>https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/107591498So you like traps?
>>963006May be worth it if they fixed ghost lights so they don't show up on reflective surfaces, like mirrors and glass.
Lets say I want to make smut porn comics. Is Daz the software to do this? I want to focus on a very specific fetish that will also require me to do some editing of existing characters/creating new ones from scratch. But I dont need any animations. I tried blender but I think it was extremely complicated and too much effort for my purposes
>>964004among others, its gonna involve overall transformations/improvements. Same character, but as you mentioned, gets bigger tits for example
>>960703Again, I apologize for my absence. Have a knight.>>961012>Do you have any social media?No, not for this.
>>964016How does she piss in that?
bros where can i steal this?https://www.daz3d.com/reby-sky-elite-hair
>>964028In the zone for graphics. Part of the Reby bundle.
>>964017>How does she piss in that?Yeah, I wonder.
Prince Anon, you have to pick one of these knights as your bodyguard!
>>964074I choose EmmAnon's busty MILF Knight
>>960705>>960908So, listened to the criticism and reworked this girl's hips and ass. Better?>>964077too big and saggy
Does rendering at a higher subdivision give you better quality renders, or you don't notice anything?
>>964101depends entirely on the asset
>>964016>No, not for this.Unfortunate, but understandable. I wouldn't mind having some means of DMing and picking your brains in private, but I understand that such a thing is probably not going to be feasible, given the nature of this medium. I do greatly enjoy the leotard element of this outfit, though I don't care much for the 'aperture'. >>964074I would pick the far left knight to be my bodyguard.
>>964101higher subdivisions will only increase the amount of detail on the particular asset, but the quality of the render itself is based on the parameters you set on the Render Settings tab, i.e. how many samples you render, or what you pixel filter radius is
did blender 4.0 break the diffeomorphic addon?
>>964206Poor form on those surface normals which are fucking with your shadows as well.
Why does like every character in this software look weird and creepy lol
>>964277stock expression morphs. Convincing human expressions are really something that need to be sculpted for a specific face. People don't pay attention to lighting and shading the eyes either.
>>964255yes, as is my point between asset quality and render quality
>>964322get that alpha sorting in check for the specular
>>964344>>964322What's missing here imo is subsurface scattering and dual lobe specular.
>>964348Hair also hasn't been adjusted at all so it's clipping in a render..
Is there a full body covering g8f skin tight bodysuit with g8f UV wrapping that can accept g8f skin shaders? I need it for uh, reasons, you wouldn't understand. I make do with how I can make do, mostly geometry shells, but it would be useful.
>>964649You can just apply the dynamic surface to the GF8 skin if you're trying to do deflation/skin porn.
>>964673But I need it to be wearable.
How can I modify the base shape to close their mouth? Totocandy1 has her mouth open as the base shape for some fucking reason.
What's a good way to gauge when to turn on the denoiser?I was going off the convergence ratio. I have a scene with multiple cameras, did a test to see when the Convergence is about 25%, and then I would set about 50 frames of denoise after that point.My only problem is the typical. Low light, hair taking forever to render, and angle/rim light taking forever, Pic related.Is there a better gauge? Should I wait till 50%? Lower ISO and expose the canvas more? I'm kind of just throwing ideas at the wall. I know low lights are the kryptonite for daz, but it can surely be down with compromise.
>>964870Forgot to attach the pic. Please proceed to crucify me.
>>964870as far as i can tell, denoiser doesn't really matter when you do it, because it still has to reach the convergence you set. i think it's just there for a better "good enough". i'm probably wrong though.
>>964870Nvidia's denoiser is shit at small details like skin imperfections, because it can't distinguish between what's part of a texture and what's noise. There are ways to have a texture aware denoiser (cough, cough, Albedo), but Nvidia doesn't give a shit.So far, it means denoised images tends to have a slightly plastic look, unless you literally runs the rendering for 99% convergence (upon which why are you even denoising to begin with). The result can be more or less acceptable, depending on what you strive for.In any case the denoiser does not affect the convergence ratio, and can be plugged equally at any time, with no incidence on the final render. It tends to take a big amount of GPU ram when it is activated and to slightly stall your rendering at each denoising pass, but it isn't that noticeable. So you can just activate it at rendering pass 8 and keep it on.TL;DR unless memory is a problem, if you want your denoising, just activate it and stop the rendering when it looks "good enough". But don't expect miracles in quality.
>>964870Don't use the integrated Denoiser. It is shit. Use the Intel denoiser.
>>964832Maybe there is a hidden morph active.
>>964933Unfortunately not. When i remove the head morph, the mouth closes.
>Hyper realistic female character, inspired by one of the very famous adult entertainment starWho is this supposed to be?
>>964949why she got squished bolt on titties in a loose fitting tank top?
ive been gone for a while so to start ill lurk and post here againfirst thing I did was improve my "rooster" knight
also time to clean up / update all my own stuff.
>>965098and package for distribution? ^_^Welcome back!
do ghostlights need to be emissive surfaces or can it be a native spotlight with render emitter off?
> 8k monkeypox textures
>the Mormons are still refusing to open source Daz StudioDead software. Dead company.
updated another old one of my outfits.
>>965433what hair is that?
Fellas, who here does stuff from scratch? I got some questions.
>>965436the hair is: dForce Stephanie Ponytail for Genesis 8 Females. I just changed it and added my own shader. Only outfit and model is mine. >>965438I do create my own stuff (mostly clothes and textures) but I mix and match with store assets as well.
>>965444My question to you then is, what does the material workflow look like for daz? I haven't used it in a long time but I feel like it could be a fun thing to pick up just for fun. I haven't even redownloaded the manager yet.
>>965446you can build your own shaders or use already existing ones (mostly done by Nvidia) and just change the variables (textures, nodes and values). but really its designed around just using Nvidia Iray´s shaders and simply using your own textures and values. I use photoshop and 3dcoat for my textures and 90% just use the Nvidia shaders with my own inputs (rarely I need something specific not covered here).You got a background in blender, max or such then its pretty straight forward.
>>965447I see, I have experience with Iray then. This shouldn't be too hard to move my assets into here then. Thanks a lot anon
and now for the lingerie / underwear
>>965492LEG AND HIP!
>>965493indeed! Cant post the NSFW version though
>>965642>Ribbed, for her pleasureRequesting gummy worm meme version with the knight please.
>>965654hah fair enough ill post one
>>965763where can i follow your work?
>>965765cant argue with that>>965780like anon pointed out: >>965792
looking for someone to do a quick 3d xenomorph alien render for me, I see that many models are available but I'm a complete 0 when it come to 3d.need it for tattoo, can pay a little
>>965898Use Dalle 3.
did a quick render og my finished lingerie set for the priestess outfit
>>965933such a great bod you've given her. cruvy and tight in all the right places
>>965936didnt want to go full bimbo
>>965938Doesnt hurt to throw a variant render here and there with some BOOBA
>>965939sure BOOBA is important
>>965898I will seriously do it for 50 dollars, what kind of pose do you want the xenomorph to do?
>>966018Is this your character? Thank you, I love her.
>>965097good to see you back :)
>>966023thanks muscle anon ;)
iray decal nodes make me want to rip my pubes out.
>>966019thanks, its awesome seeing my character being used in other people's renders in these threads. I've collected all them in a folder.
>>966019Why is she posing alone while talking to water
>>966061I havent added all the bodybuilding black men to the scene yet.
the feminine desire to have big arms for skull splitting.
I'll be honest, DAZ3D is harder than I thought it would be. I just wanna make coomerslop to sell to goys. Also, built in noise filtering or third party noise filtering?
