    Hello, when au was last in here- if this is the right group- I saw a link for Filter Forge. I can’t seem to find that link again to down load it. I can’t remember who posted it either. I was wondering if I could get help if the link for Filter Forge is still active and where it is. Thanks for any info 🐈🐈🐈🐈🐈

    In this series, we take on one of the very oddest creatures of the Cthulhu pantheon: the Elder Thing! We’ll be using dynamesh for the entire alien entity but we’re going to pull some “Frankensteining”, that is, we’re going to be creating…[Read more]

    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…[Read more]

    • Blazer 1 year, 10 months ago

      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?

      • Damien 1 year, 10 months ago

        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 1 year, 10 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

        Here is the link

        Hope this helps

        Thanks,Damien

    • Blazer 1 year, 10 months ago

      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.

      • Damien 1 year, 10 months ago

        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…[Read more]

    Has anyone using DS had luck getting the Wolf by AM (with fur) to load? It goes through the process and freezes at 99%…quite annoying…and the no fur version looks too “plastic” for what I want it for…

      • Posette 1 year, 10 months ago

        Well…I just let it go while went off to do other things and when came back it had loaded…the “fur” versions are HUGE in size by comparison to others…maybe that’s part of the problem…I made sure to turn off shadows on my lights (didn’t need for what I was doing anyway) and once it loaded all the textures the first render the next one was…[Read more]

          I’ll have to try that. I’m glad you got it to work though. 🙂

          • Posette 1 year, 10 months ago

            Oh after the first slow render, I was even able to add another figure into the scene and turn on the lights shadow again…so maybe the program has to recover from “birthing” such a big baby into the scene 🙂 (Bad joke…I know)

      Hi Carla

      Are you planning to use Reality 2.5 or do you planning to get or you have Octane Render ?

      If you are planning to use Reality and GPU render,then I would go with AMD R270X or 280X,which are best,if budget allows then R290X is best card for money

      For Octane render you will need to have nVidia GPU something like GTX680 should be OK,but…[Read more]

        Hello, thanks for the advice, I use the default 3delight render with uberenvironment or advaced ambient-spotligth-distanligth, I’m making scenes with 50 or more génesis 2 figures plus complex scenarios, that causes the viewport to go sloooow or crashes daz and makes the parameters too slow to respond, and the more textures I load it gets worse,…[Read more]

          Hi Carla

          That’s too many G2F/G2M,I mostly using only 2 or 4 as most in my scenes although my scenes are overcrowded with props etc

          If you are using such many figures I would say you will need good GPU with 4GB VRAM at least

          What are yours settings in DAZ3D,which you can find under Preferences->Interface?

              So, I really dont need a graphic card to render, since I plan on using daz and 3delight, what I want is to have the viewpor responding fast, to load tons of génesis 2 figures and textures in the viewport and for the scene to open fast when i open it, some scenes with 40 figures take 20 minutes to open and 9 to 10 to render he, he.

                If you have set to higher resolution,then I would set them to 512×512 which should be enough for viewport and for HW Anti Aliasing I would set to off too

                    Yours HDD is good Carla and I would suspect HDD,what I’m suspecting is you have too many figures in scene 😉

                    Decimator that’s only minus what I’ve read about this

                    Instancing is probably best way how to do it there,Poser doesn’t have this function and in DAZ3D I’ve not used this,but will try to do few test later on

              • Damien 2 years, 6 months ago

                And I forgot to ask,when you have those figures all in scene,in task manager how much DAZ3D taking RAM?

                I would only assume is taking lots of RAM and swapping from Virtual memory,please if you could check how much memory taking DAZ3D with yours scene

                    Yours GPU is OKish and yours problem probably lies in RAM,you will need add more RAM

                    I would suspect during rendering yours RAM will be swapped from Virtual memory which only slows down

                    You have right now only 16 G2M fully clothed and yours RAM is 12.7GB and if you add more G2F or G2M then I would expect yours RAM will…[Read more]

                      • Damien 2 years, 6 months ago

                        This GPU load I woud expect Carla,I’ve tested on my PC with only 3 G2F fully clothed and full big scene and my GPU load has been similar to yours

                        Agree if you are trying to recreate battle then this must be pretty complex and two G2M would look just wrong if you are trying to achieve big battle scene

      As Daz Studio users we all know that when Daz Studio is rendering it is a resource hog eating through all our CPU power and as much RAM as it can get, and if like me you don’t have some huge 8 core, 32Gb super computer then your are faced with long render times and a system that can barely do anything else while Daz slowly chugs away.

      Agree DAZ render slows PC as every render,that’s the biggest minus and all as everything depends on the PC/laptop,but on my spec Daz hogs the CPU,browser is useable or any other program,but performance in general slows down,this is same with 3DS Max or Poser/C4D and many others

    • pigat22 2 years, 9 months ago

      What I have also discovered is that the version of 3Delight standalone ios actually 1.1 not 1.0 that daz uses it actually supports more advanced shaders than the daz version.
      You can also use this standalone renderer with C4D not sure if you can use it with max

    • Damien 2 years, 9 months ago

      Will test this later on with C4D and Studio,hopefully will be improvement

    • Gaspar Ilom 2 years, 8 months ago

      Thanks for this tip, It helped a lot, I am rendering something right now and see what happens.
      On a help note to all users, if you browse to where you have the *_collected folder you can right click the *.rib file and select render with 3d Delight, so no need to go to the anoying command promt, just found that out by accident….

    • pigat22 2 years, 8 months ago

      I have just tried this and it causes lots of errors, so I say you really need to use the command prompt, I know it’s a pain but it really is necessary.
      Also ensure that you selected collect and Localize in the render options in Daz

It is because I am having problems using Skin Builder Pro, which slows down the program because it uses LIE function, I’m frustrated and am about to return the product for a refund, but in the daz forum, it says to turn off this feature to make it a bit better, so am trying to find it.

              • Blazer 2 years, 8 months ago

                If you click the link Damien has specified above it will bring you to the thread where it says ” open your Surfaces Tab, use the Mini Menu, four line thing, and set Automatically Refresh Images to OFF. That will stop the TDLmake issue, as far as I know it works.” That should fix it.
