[Tutorial] Getting Started With Iray
Introduction
Here is the tutorial on YouTube.

Here is a .pdf version.

This is for those of you who are looking at the interface going, "Now what?"  This covers how to convert existing shaders and how to set up lighting for your render. 
This is a text version that, while different from what I'm saying in the video word by word, contains the same information. 
---

To use this you need DAZ Studio 4.8 Pro or later.

Part 1: The Environment and Camera Settings
Before we get started, we need to check the environment, camera and render settings.
The Render Settings tab has an Editor and an Advanced section.  Advanced is where you check or uncheck your CPU and graphics cards.  I render with just my cards most of the time, and if you have good cards with lots of CUDA

Iray Surfaces And What They Mean
I've updated and corrected this article based on DAZ's documentation.  You should read that if you want more information.  This will continue to be more of a "plain talk" breakdown.
Let us begin with the different types of shaders from the "Base Mixing" dropdown at the top.  Choosing one of these will hide or gray out some options and reveal others.


The Iray shader behaves as though it has three layers: The "base" layer, the "metallic flakes" layer on top of that, and the "top coat layer" on top of that.  It is possible to turn off the top two layers and not use their settings, but the ability to use them is a property this shader has that 3Delight did not.  This makes using shaders made for Iray very important when rendering to get the best look in Iray!

I'm looking for some good skins for Genesis 3, Iray in particular. I'm having trouble finding ones that I like. Send me a note with any suggestions. Thanks. - 18 AUG 2016

Bio, of a sort: I've been a frustrated artist for most of my life. Then in September of 2005 I discovered Poser and was suddenly able to make images that one could consider art. I can't draw, paint, or sculpt. Some people consider rendered art to not be art as you are essentially using digital paper dolls. It's not the medium that matters. It's the mind behind the art that matters.

My work: I mostly do female pinup art. I also dabble in the occasional male pinup image as well as non-pinup images of girls. I do some outright adult images I post at Renderotica (though not very often).

My gallery: I have broken my gallery up into various sub-galleries based on subject matter. With my habit of bouncing in and out of mature material I have separated my adult-oriented art from my family safe art. If you want to look through my pinups and nudes you'll have to select one of those sub-galleries or Browse to see everything.

Favorites: I only have one, sometimes two, image per artist in my fave list. I'm not interested in cataloging every image I like by every artist. I use my faves list as a means to share artists I like with others.

If you like my work, how about supporting me on Patreon? You get alternate, usually NSFW, versions and desktop wallpapers for your Patronage. Every bit helps, 3D rendering is an expensive hobby.
Thank you.

Commissions

Send commission requests to rrward.art@gmail.com

All prices are in US dollars.
  • Original Image: Single Figure: $30.00, $5.00 for each additional figure.
  • Modified existing image: $10.00 for minor modifications, $20.00 for major modifications (changing clothes or skins is a minor modification, adding new figures is a major modification, though it might not be.)
  • Five-Dollar (or higher) Patreon Patrons get $5.00 off.

Commissions are for non-commercial use only. You are free to upload any commission to whatever web page you desire, as long as you do not charge money to access commissioned images, or enable prints here at DA. (Commercial renders will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.)

All commissions will be made available to you as JPG files at whatever resolution you want up to 4096 x 4096. Unless otherwise specified I will go with 1920x11440 or 1440x1920 for non desktop wallpaper images.

Some hopeful customers have asked me to make characters with faces based on real people. I've tried it a few times, and the results were unsatisfactory for both myself and the client. However... I do have a large library of characters at my disposal, and if one of those existing faces meets your needs, let me know. You can find an index of my library here: www.trilobite.org/posergirls/i…

Speaking of Original Characters: All original characters created for commissions are copyrighted by the person requesting the commission and will not be used in any other images without the copyright holder's prior consent.

How this works:
  1. Send me an email at rrward.art@gmail.com with your idea.
  2. If I am willing to take the commission I'll email you asking for more details.
  3. I will make a rough, low-resolution version of what I think you want and I'll make any changes you need. When you are happy with the roughs I'll send you my PayPal address. When I receive payment I will then create the final, high-resolution version and send you a private link to the file.

Unless otherwise requested, or the image violates the TOS at Deviant Art, I will post the image to my gallery if I see fit. Be sure to tell me if you don't want it posted, or if you want a 1/2 scale version posted.

Be advised that while I am more than happy to make adult images, I will not make images that are illegal in the United States.
