Do your indoor rendered scenes look like Vicky can’t afford to pay her electric bill? Is your computer tied up for hours trying to get that dungeon render to finish? Is it hard to tell which space marine is which in the firefight in the airlock? The Iray engine is most effective and efficient when more direct light is falling on the surfaces in your render. This is easily done in the great outdoors with an Iray skydome or HDRI. But interior scenes continue to stump many Daz Studio artists. In this tutorial set, Karl Knarr goes over valuable tips and tricks to get the quality results you’re looking for, including ridding renders of “fireflies” type noise. Through three hours of presentation, he uses three DAZ studio sets to teach lighting in contemporary, fantasy, and sci-fi scenes to show how they work in practice with Iray. Who is this Course for?
