    Hi guys

    Out is DAZ3D Studio 4.8 Pro Beta which includes nVidia iRAY,its Physical Based Renderer(PBR),basically is very similar to the Reality,V-RAY or Mental Ray,I highly recommend to download and try this Beta,its worth it

    You can enable/render with CPU/GPU mode(for this you need to have nVidia GPU) or you can render in CPU mode only,in CPU mode this can take twice as much as with GPU and CPU combo,but renders looks same,I’ve done two test renders and they look both same

    Render with GPU(GTX560Ti ) and CPU(i7-920 4.0GHz) render took 35mins and in CPU mode only render took 1hour and 30mins

    As in every PBR render everything depends on the HW used

    Thanks,Damien

      Yes, it’s actually quite nice. I’ve been testing it out (basically re-rendering my old scenes) and it certainly looks so much better than 3Delight. Supposedly it 4.8 beta comes with shaders to use for iRay, but I can’t find them. Have you come across them?

        Hi Blazer

        Agree its looks much better than 3Delight
        Yes 4.8 Beta will come with iRAY shaders,they’re located under DAZ3D->Content->Shader Presets and folder is called Iray Uber Defaults

        Hope this helps

        Thanks,Damien

      Does it end up as a stand alone or do I need to make sure to copy my contents to another file so as to not override anything…and another thing…where the heck is the link to download the new version…the site keeps taking me to 4.7

      • Damien 3 years, 3 months ago

        Hi Posette

        No is separate installation and will not overwrite existing installation,you will have two DS one 4.7 and one 4.8 Beta

        You will need to download this via DAZ Install Manager and please have look on link bellow how to download this Beta

      So I’ve had a couple of days to play around with it. While it does render much better than 3Delight, in my opinion, Reality is still superior in quality and lighting than iray.

        Hi Blazer

        I know in quality or lighting,Reality is the best,but issue with reality is very slow and good results at 1920×1200 at 2000px this can take up to 12hours to render on normal PC

        I prefer to work with V-RAY as is the fast,not fastest too

        Octane I would love to have,but I’ve swapped for AMD GPU and due this I can dream about the Octane

        Still I don’t really use DS for rendering,I usually using Poser for rendering or 3DS MAX

        Thanks,Damien
