How to Make IBL from a scene (concept tutorial) http://ow.ly/Y8W7R

There are more complicated and more accurate ways of doing this, but they require some experience of stitching multiple panos together. This method is good enough for most situations and only involves a mirrored ball and a single image. First t...

How to use Reality with AM's Look At My Hair (DS) - Another excellent tutorial on the RDNA Reality Forums written by Sigstan http://ow.ly/XL6AT
A lot of the "furry"" animals sold at DAZ actually does not have much in way of fur. Many of them resembles the little plastic animals that kids used to play with back before the world became digital. I remember looking at DAZ Horse 2 and being surprised that it didn't even have a single bump map. There are however tools that can supply the much needed fur to our 3D animals. One is called "Look At My Hair" (LAMH) made by Alessandro_AM ...

Reality 4 Skin settings discussion. Banditcameraman started a discussion on Reality 4 Skin settings. There is tons of good information. http://ow.ly/XZ77Y
Getting good skin renders It's now gotten to the point where I can consistently achieve good skin renders in R4 so I thought I'd share. This first post is for Females (regardless of Generation) and settings for Males to follow at a later date. This is only a starting point, of course ;) The biggest game changer R4 brought was SSS, in my humble opinion. From the wiki entry on subsurface scattering:

Reality Lighting Tips and Tricks - http://ow.ly/XI0EE
While there are many tips on settings and other stuff, there don’t seem to be as many when it comes to lighting so I thought I’d get the ball rolling :) This assumes that you have some experience with Reality and know how to use the Reality sphere. If you haven’t yet give it a try; it took me a year of using Reality before I did :8 While the most common practice is to use the Reality sphere for exterior shots (and it still is the best way ...

Take control of your materials – Part 3

In Part 1 we have seen what kind of material editors are available in Poser and DAZ Studio. In Part 2 we dug deeper on why those programs ended up with intimidating, difficult to use material editors. Today we are going to see the alternative and why it works.

Material types

We learn about materials before we learn how to speak. As infants, we are compelled to touch and explore the new world around us. Even though we don’t know what they are called, we have a very tactile experience of plastic, glass, metal, fabric, skin, and all the other great materials around us. Later on, our parents teach us the names for those materials and some time later we learn how to speak those names. click here to all of the post. http://ow.ly/XsHlq
Part 3 of our tour into the world of editing materials. Here we look at how Reality makes it easier to customize materials than any other alternative.
