Daz Studio 4 Map Transfer Mini TutorialThe process is fairly simple. You load the desired texture on to Genesis in Daz Studio 4 (in which ever form, V5, M5 etc) Then under the 'Surfaces' Tab, select the icon in the top left corner of the window. Scroll down to Map Transfer. On the top left of the new window where it says 'Template' right click in the box area. Click 'New Template'. On the right side of the window is a list of the surfaces your current 3d model has. Daz have been very helpful here as they have numbered the relevant parts of the map that belong together. So it is then a process of Shift+Left Click each map region in turn. Once you have the whole group selected left click and drag them over to the Template1 that you created. Then change the 'Target UV Map to M4. You will need to have the Template1 selected to alter the 'Template Options' in the lower part of the window. I would advise a quality of 10, and dimensions of 4096. Then select an output directory. Here I would create yourself a dummy runtime in the PDaz Studio 4 Map Transfer Mini Tutorial by Kaos3d
Image Render Quality - Mini TutorialI was asked by :iconmrsynnerster: if I minded sharing my Poser Pro 2012 render settings. Of course I am more than happy to shareImage Render Quality - Mini Tutorial by Kaos3d
So here is the info I gave:
Sure thing See the following link http://poser2octane.deviantart.com/gallery/33862729#/d4gxebg Though I will say that the quality of my artworks is never achieved by the rendering alone. I always use a semi transparent sharpening duplicate diffuse layer above my main diffuse render. The sharpness and opacity of this layer is done on a per image basis. As texture strengths vary from product to product. Also I use Shaderworks 'Advanced Render Settings 2'(from http://www.runtimedna.com) to create my specular and shadows only render passes. These layers are added to my main PSD and adjusted to create the look I am after for a particular piece. I hope this helps you get better quality in your own artworks
Mini Rainfall TutorialI was asked by :iconorsus: if I had any tips for painting in rainfall on an image. I posted this on his image but I thought the information would be helpful to others too. So I thought I'd post it as a journalMini Rainfall Tutorial by Kaos3d
Here's a mini tutorial for you... when adding rainfall to an image... have at the very least three layers of rain: foreground, mid-ground and background.
1) Sharpen the foreground layer to make it more noticeable (But not too sharp, otherwise it will look false).
2) The mid-ground, add a medium gaussian blur. Softly erase areas where the rain makes contact with mid-ground objects. The reason for this is you don't want build up. Which will leave you unable to see the details in your artwork.
3) The background, double the amount of gaussian blur. If there is little background lighting you can make the background semi transparent. To dampen the rain effect. To give the effect of gloominess. precisely erase areas where the background rain meets mid-ground objects. To give the i
|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

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.

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.
