Product Information

  • Required Products: None

ABAS is an Animated Shaders System for Daz Studio. Now, you can animate the properties of the surface shaders of any geometric object. You can animate the colors, the sliders of properties, and others.

Any surface shader that can be edited in the Daz Studio Surfaces Pane is suitable for animation with ABAS. Note: ABAS cannot animate the image maps themselves and other non-standard custom properties; however, the remaining properties of the shader are still animatable. ABAS does not work with Octane renders.

Resolved Issues

  • 2022-11-16 Fixed a bug that precludes the use of numbers in the folders in the path of maps of files in some cases: For example, for a png series image00.png, image01.png, etc., the folders “/image05/” or “/series 01/” caused the plugin cannot locate some of the files.
    • Now the user can prevent the plugin from trying to animate undesirables mapped or file properties, by locking them in the Animated Shader.
  • 2022-03-07 Updated:
    • Fixed a bug that prevented the saving with the scene the maps in the Animated Shader.
    • Added support to animate maps in properties and file properties (like the one in the Daz Studio’s “Simple OpenVDB MDL Volume shader”).
    • Added a primitive prop to visualize OpenVDB files in ABAS’ content.
    • The manual was updated to include the new features.
  • 2022-04-21 Updated:
    • Updated the “Simple OpenVDB MDL Volume shader”. Now its surface is named “Volume” instead of “default”.
    • Added support for rendering animated maps with 3Delight, using auxiliary nodes.
    • The manual was updated to include the new feature.
