Optimize you Genesis and Generation 4 Figures for Iray renders thanks to this Bundle!

Iray Converter for Genesis and Generation 4 Bundle includes specialized scripts that will apply Optimized Iray settings to all the surfaces of any Genesis or Generation 4 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, and several gloss management scripts in order to Customize the skin properties.

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.

As a bonus in this bundle, you will find scripts allowing the transfer of the skin properties of a figure to the genitalia of the figure for Generation 4 Male, and Genesis Male(s) and Female(s).

Iray converter is not just a converter, this is an efficient and complete Skin Customization Toolbox for great Iray renders of all your Genesis and Generation 4 Figures! It has been conceived to achieve great Iray renders very fast and very easily!

Additional Details

  • Using the Conversion Script on the Michael 4 Genitalia:
    • Due to the way Iray handles rendering it is suggested to select the “Hip” bone of the M4 Gens and set the zTranslation to 0.10 this should alleviate any artifacts caused by the Gens mesh sitting on the Base figure mesh.
    • There are two extra options on the script for the M4Gens:
      • Preserve current “Diffuse Color” or “Base Color” of Pubic Hair surface for when the original texture uses a transparency and diffuse color instead of trans and texture map.
      • Force Invis surface to be set at 0 Opacity is for assistance with residual artifacts after moving the “Hip” bone as suggested above.
  • General Product Notes
    • This product incorporates modified source code from Scripting > Samples:
    • The Genitalia Scripts require that the figure and the Genitalia are not parented to anything, and that the main figure's skin shader is Iray uber (which will be the case if you applied the skin scripts of the product).
    • I'd like to thank Rob (rbtwhiz), Richard Haseltine, and Draagonstorm for the support they provided to me when I was learning to script. Without their precious help, I would have probably given up, and this product would not exist.
