Optimize your Genesis Figures for Iray renders thanks to Iray Converter for Genesis!

This product includes specialized scripts that will apply Optimized Iray settings to all the surfaces of any Genesis figure, along with many gloss, translucency, and tons of other options for your Iray renders.

For the perfectionists, additional scripts, behaving as smart material presets, will allow you to get even more customization of your renders. They include base colour options, scatter and translucency options, colours and strengths, bump tools, and several gloss management scripts in order to enhance the effect you want to highlight in your scenes.

Gloss management is realized by step by step scripts, by increasing or decreasing gloss parameters proportionally to their current setting on the skin, lips and nails surfaces of the figure. You can this way define your global gloss, or all the key parameters influencing glossiness. Very easy to use!

Want to increase gloss? Double click “Increase Gloss” until the desired result is reached. You can adjust either the global glossiness, or only some individual gloss parameters such as gloss weight, reflectivity, roughness, top coat. Similar scripts are also dedicated to nails and lips management only.

Iray converter is not a simple converter, this is an efficient and complete skin customization toolbox for great Iray renders of all your Genesis figures! It has been conceived to achieve great Iray renders of any Genesis figure very fast and very easily!

Additional Details

  • Product Notes
    • All these files behave as smart material preset, meaning that you have to select your figure, and then apply the files (double click or drag and drop).
    • Your figure must not be parented to something else when applying the files, otherwise, they may not work.
    • Three main presets are available, depending on what you want to do with the specular (which become the glossy and top coat) maps. The third preset is the recommended preset and will remove all the specular maps of the figure. Generally, genesis maps being very dark, you may have to increase strongly the glossy layered weight for gloss effects to become visible if you kept the maps. This is why the third preset (option 3, UAG) is generally recommended, but if can use the transfer of the specular maps to the glossy color only (preset 2) or to both glossy color and top coat color (preset 1) if you prefer these options.
    • Once a preset is applied, you can browse to the folder initializing your gloss weight and try various starting points. If you used preset 1 or 2 and your gloss is too visible, it is probably because the specular maps are initially more clear than the average of Genesis Specular maps. In this case, go for a lower gloss weight, and eventually decrease the top coat weight too.
    • The product it conceived so that, once your main preset is chosen, you can browse folder by folder, in the folder order, the customizations proposed for the skins.
    • When a file is named using “increase” or “decrease”, this file is a proportional script, meaning that it will read the given parameter on the surface of your figure, and increase it or decrease it by a given percentage. This will allow you to optimize around your original settings.
