Product Information

  • Required Products: None

We're always looking for ways to make our art better. These composition helpers are prop guides that sit in your camera view, moving with the camera, to help you compose better images in Daz Studio. They are props, not transparent images, so they work with any renderer and will not interfere with transparent materials in your scene.

In addition to the guides pre-loaded inside custom Daz Studio cameras, the guides are provided as transparent PNG's for backdrops, layered PSD's for photoshop, and as centered OBJ files for importing into other applications including Bryce, Poser, Cararra, and Vue.

Each prop guide has multiple material zones, so you can use just the lines you want. Several shader presets are provided for color and opacity presets, using the basic Daz Studio shader, compatible with 3Delight or Iray.

The guides can be moved, rotated, and scaled just like any other prop.

The included QuickStart Guide covers all the options and has the easy steps you need to start using the guides. Whether you want to create images based on academic tradition, or want a starting point for creating something bold and non-traditional, these composition helpers will help you to achieve your goals.
