Did octane put out a readme or something for usage in Daz cos I had pretty high expectations of octane, I thought it was one of the top teir renderers.
I feel like I'm missing something obvious.

>> No.713211

make sure you guys are using the "path tracer" kernel, though i wouldn't even bother rendering via octanerender as otoy has been dragging their feet on implementing nvidia's material design language (which has been open-source for a while now by the way) so as it stands now you gotta reshade everything via their "more intuitive" (read: slower to use if you actually know what you're doing) node-based shader ui

You need to pin joints, it's dumb.

Lots of things in Daz are much smoother once you set up some hotkeys. Especially pinning.
Pin where you don't want, drag into place, unpin then pin other side, drag into place. It becomes quite intuitive once you get into the rythem of that

Is this a render effect, or photoshop post processing?

>> No.713962

he lists Cinema 4D, Photoshop and DAZ Studio as software used, so I think it's a ps filter and touch up. he may have used Cinema 4D to get defrint render passes, like shadows, AO etc to help with the filters. Can daz do render passes if it can then it was probably a render effect c4d? looks good.

Why do all daz renders I see look like uncanny wax-dolls, is that something intrinsic to daz or is it the creators?

>> No.714016

Badly lit Daz renders have a really recognizable look to them. There's plenty of renders that look great that you can't really be sure which renderer they were done in.
Go look at some of the top 3dx stuff on skushe for example. Plenty of the best stuff is done in Daz, a lot of it is taken to other renderers also.
Daz iray is powerful if you know how to use it right.

>> No.714017

Any recommended resources for avoiding bad lighting? Searching “Daz3d lighting” nets a million results, all talking about how to make good lighting for their niche render.. any generically applicable advice?

>> No.714018

Three point lighting is a good start. You won't find a catch all fix all product as every scene and character is unique in their placement.
Else, you could just throw HDRIs at everything.

here's more of this guy's work

>> No.714039

It's not just dazlighting, it's nothing how to light a rendered scene in general. Look up any good fundementals and it will take you in the right direction.

For Daz I mostly use a mix of hdris and emmissive surfaces on planes

One thing that will really help you to understand this is an iray emmissive Surfaces pack for Daz. I can't remember he exact name, but it has heaps of preset colours at different intensities and just playing with those you can drastically see the changes it makes in your renders.

When I export a shirt from marvelous designer into daz (after fitting it properly to the same model/pose) and apply the right morph in daz, the shirt doesn't go to the right place (it's floating under her).

Do all Octane versions have this always online or just the DAZ version ?

>> No.714098

Thanks for the feedback

Is there any meaningful difference between GF3 and GF8? I know they put more options in the morph packs for GF8... but other than /eyelashes/ and making my life difficult with wonky arms on GF3 poses, I don’t see a lot of selling points

>> No.714099

Theres some face posing stuff but its not a huge difference. I just got some 3>4 transfer options for morphs/clothes and moved on.

>> No.714100

Do those morph / pose transfer utilities work? I just assumed it would be jank to the highest degree

>> No.714103

There was a free script for it but Daz shut it down. Now there are paid addons to do the same thing.

>> No.714104

I add, that was for morphs. Poses work fine, just need to adjust arms/legs. The pose corrector tool works well.

>> No.714109

It still works after filtering those, but I don't know if that does away with the telemetry. Probably not.

I haven't found any information by OTOY on which sorts of data they retrieve, which is a bit suspicious.

>> No.714185

Octane has an activation/drm in the paid version. They probably just left that in rather than spend more time engineering.

Additionally, there is the live/online materials database.

The whole thing is rather innocuous. I had the paid version for the last year and haven't had the feds bust down my door yet. You guys can probably take off the tinfoil hats.

>> No.714186

Why does it matter?
Octane doesn't give a shit what Daz assets you pirate

>> No.714188

They're probably rendering little girls.

>> No.714193

Nah, I simply have a strong dislike of this telemetry trend, and also I don't trust OTOY.

But yeah, the other anon probably is rendering little girls.

>> No.714202

I don't think octane would even know though?
I mean, if they were sending screenshots of your viewport it would be very obvious in your uploads.
Everyone can make childlike looking characters with default Daz no add-ons so

I don't really see how it would matter anyway. I doubt octane uploads your renders thats something that they would have been outted for already.

>> No.714215

are there any actually good facial expressions packs?

all the popular ones are incredibly overexaddurated and look rediculous

>> No.714271

Don't use the full value. Most of those packs are designed for specific characters and will look quite different on others.

>> No.714283

>rendering little girls.
how would a judge even determine the age of a rendered or drawn characters ? How old are polygons ? Are these always the same polygons or are they recreated every time ? A few minutes old ?
Just bullshitting. In my country it's the 'apparent' age of a character but how do you decide wheter she's 17 or 18 ?

Iray wasn't an excuse, either. There is also 3delight, right? So yeah, having Octane won't change anything.

>> No.714360

I'm dumb but aren't all raytracers fundamentally identical? Usually I dont notice any diffrence other than color tone.
