Iray Reality

I’ve given the Nvidia Iray renderer in Daz studio a good couple of months now and even bought an Nvidia graphics card on the strength of what the render engine offered. However, I have to confess that I love Reality and Luxrender more. Both give great results but i love the latest Reality interface and functionality. As it turns out, the upgraded graphics card has also been a bonus for Reality / LuxRender rendering.

On the music and art front. I’ve been able to get lots done whilst also painting the external woodwork, some family trips out and even some schoolwork! I’ve returned to my old Sony Acid Pro software (with which almost all of the original Earth Balm tracks were created) for sketching out musical ideas. I still have Cubase and Native instruments for actual sequencing.

Poser and Reality

I blew the last of the money from my musical equipment sales on eBay to buy Poser 10 and Reality for Poser. I bought Reality at a cross grade pricing. It’s a great combination though at the moment I prefer Daz Studio, Reality, LuxRender as I’m used to the workflow / interface / file structure. I’ll post images as my experience grows.

Invetero

I must admit that although I try to spend as little money as possible these days, whenever a Jack Tomalin product comes up for a reduced-price sale on Daz 3D, I  feel impelled to buy it. Latest offer is on Invertero. The price worked out as just over £6 sterling. I loaded it into Daz Studio 4.6 straight after download and I am currently rendering it in LuxRender via Reality. The level of detail is amazing. Jack puts such an incredible amount of work into his models. I’ll post the finished render as soon as possible.
