  • Poser Quickstart:
    • To load the whole scene, load from Runtime\Libraries\Character\Din_Orient:
      • !!Pre_Ceiling_L
      • !!Pre_Ceiling_R
      • !!Pre_T_Light_L
      • !!Pre_T_Light_R
      • !!Pre_Tbls_L
      • !!Pre_Tbls_R
      • !!Pre_Wall_L
      • !!Pre_Wall_R
    • Any additional elements can be added by loading their respective cr2 file.
  • DS Quickstart:
  • As above, load from Content\Environments\Architecture\Din_Orient\Scenes folder. Any additional elements can be added by loading their respective .DAZ or DUF file(s).
  • Detailed Instructions:
    • Dine on the Orient is made up of separate sections, which when loaded up will create a complete interior. Due to the high poly count these sections can be loaded individually, or in parts to maximise resource usage. They have been split into left and right sections (_L and _R) which load either the smaller, or larger, sections of the carriage.
    • Doors all open/close.
    • Wall lights can be articulated. Additional wall lights can be added/adjusted using their respective .CR2/.DAZ/.DUF file.
    • The tables can be used complete, however to save resources, lower polygon versions have been included (Tbl_All and W_Tbl_All) which have removed polygons generally unseen.
  • Lights:
    • There are 3 DAZ Studio (both 3.1.2.32 and above and 4.6 and above) light set scenes included to accompany the product, as used in the promos. This can be found in the content\Environments\Architecture\Din_Orient\Scenes folder. They all both the UberEnvironment/UberAreaLight Spheres due to the increased control which they offer.
    • If they are all loaded in together by default it will take a while to render due to the calculating the shadows for *all* the lights. To speed up render times, but sacrificing quality, you can turn shadows off and/or lower the light samples (alternatively, to get better looking lights increase the samples). There's no real shortcut unfortunately though, but the results are worth it.
    • Please note the left and right light presets don't load the Uberenvironment - they only contain the actual lights for that section of the set. If you wish to use the UberEnvironment with those simply load the complete light set (!!Lights_All) and delete the un-required section(s).
  • Materials:
    • In addition to the Poser defaults in Runtime\Libraries\Materials\Din_Orient, Poser 5 .PZ2 in Runtime\Libraries\Poses\Din_Orient and DAZ Studio MAT files included in Content\Environments\Architecture\Din_Orient\Materials.
    • If using the DAZ Studio lights, be sure to also load the CW_Lights_On and Tbl_Light_On to set the ambient on those surfaces.
  • Notes:
    • All of the promos were created in DAZ Studio 4.6 using the light sets included and postwork added with Photoshop.
