Group Charter & Submission Guidelines

This group is specifically for Poser users. Discussions held here are solely about Smith Micro's Poser and Refractive Software's Octane.

That said with the advent of the new Daz Studio Iray rendering (which is producing some truly impressive results) I have decided to allow submissions for it in a new folder marked 'Nvidia Iray'.

You must use this Nvidia Iray Logo Nvidia Iray logo (Black Text) by Kaos3d
in order for your image to be accepted

We wish to promote a friendly and fulfilling experience for our staff and users alike. By sharing our many years of experience with you. We are true believers of reciprocity as this will allow this group to grow and flourish.

We do not permit any form of nasty or rude behaviour towards our staff or members. Trolling is totally prohibited. Your comments and/ or image submissions should always comply with DeviantArt's own code of practice and etiquette policy. Persons found to violate the said policies will be banned and reported to DeviantArt for their conduct.

Gallery Submission Guidelines:

1) ONLY images rendered in Poser or composed in Poser/ Daz Studio and exported to Octane are permitted in our galleries. We do not accept images rendered in Daz Studio. This is NOT a generic Octane gallery. So do not submit images created in other software such as 3DSMax, Blender, Lightwave, Cinema4D etc. If you are unsure as to whether or not to post your Octane renders here please contact one of our staff. See the Admin's panel. Any images found to have been created in unrelated software will be instantly removed without notification.

2) All submitted artworks must be of the highest standard possible and your very best work, and be deemed complete so far as the individual artist is concerned. We do not accept any works-in-progress images. That said we do accept step-by-step images that show a workflow or tutorial pictorially.

3) Only non adult images are allowed. Tasteful nudity is permitted. This is at the discretion of our staff.

4) At present we are not limiting the number of daily submissions. Though this may be revised in the future.

5) How do I get my image into the 'Featured Gallery'. Our group staff will vote on a Sunday which image from our Poser2Octane gallery will be featured for the next seven days. The image is changed every Monday. So make your Poser to Octane images really awesome and you too could be next weeks featured artist.

Both our charter and submission guidelines are subject to change without prior notification. So please ensure you are fully aware of them at all times.

Ah that explains why the new models from Genesis to Genesis 3 are for DS, and even if you use the Dson imcompactibilidad genesis is generated with to use them in the poser.
Ugly one that has years using poser can not happen just like that, my Gd personally did not taste horrible DSWaaaah!

Daz are in the process of trying to convert Poser users to Studio... yeah good luck with that one!!!... there are plenty of good quality on-line stores that service Poser artists. As for the cost of Octane, we are talking several hundreds of dollars. Check out Otoy's website for exact pricing ;)

Bone I like the poser years I have been using it, I wanted to know if there was anything to it, because I see that all goes to DS and not for poser, so wondered if the octane render it very expensive for someone who creates jobs 3d as a hobby:o (Eek)

As a user of Poser/ Octane and DS Iray I can say they all create stunningly realistic renders... with software know how ;)

That said... Octane requires you to know a wealth of advanced material/ lighting settings close to that of a photographer, in order to produce great results. Though the Octane plug-in for Poser greatly simplifies this process. You would still need to make adjustments.

DS Iray is free and fairly easy to use by comparison. That's if you don't mind using DS's rather clunky and awkward UI, in my opinion. Though it is a great entry point to 3D rendering if you are a beginner :squee:

Poser/ Octane (Standalone) and Poser to Octane plug-in don't come cheap. If you are dedicated to the pursuit of fine rendering and are willing to know your craft, then Poser would be the weapon of choice. If you are a hobbyist and want to try your hand at 3D then obviously DS Iray is a no brainer :jawdrop:

You helped me plenty cause I didn't know that you can change the nodes.  Also I forgot about DNA so I'll go up there and see what they got on the forums.  I just recently changed my video card from a GTX 580 to a GTX 980.  It's a huge difference.
