Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Does your hair lack body and shine? Your Daz characters have been the same - until now! Welcome to a revolution in the lustre and realism for modeled hair - for Any Hair on Any Character!

These Iray shaders can be applied to any hair to bring life and vitality to your renders in a range of lighting conditions, including sunlight, HDRI lighting and mesh lighting. A total of 50 shaders are included in both natural and fantasy colors.

Simply select the surfaces of your hair model and apply your chosen Hair Lustre shader. This will be applied at 80% by default, thus working with the original texture to contribute to the overall appearance. The original glossiness is also retained. Extra Strength and Shine settings are included to be able to fine-tune the effect as required.

You can also get creative by applying different Lustre effects to different hair surfaces in either complementary or contrasting colors to create some amazing effects.

Bring a new level of realism to all your existing hair models - your characters will never be the same again!
