Continued Adventures In 3D Rendering!
My adventures in 3D rendering continue! Here you can see me playing with the "Iray Worlds" package from DAZ3D, which is a package of HDRI sky presets for the Environment system inside the IRay rendering engine. Tech talk aside: It makes pretty skies for your renders that you can adjust the color and tone of if you wish. Here I've rendered the main cast of my novel, The Technowizard Guardians Of The Infinite Worlds Of Fandom, in all their glory, with a guest spot photobomb by Cthulu himself! If you look very closely, you can see where I've had to do a bit of Photoshop work on Gygax's pant-leg; for some reason, it doesn't want to render right. I think this is because of a glitch in the clothing-fitting system inside of DAZ Studio that I'll have to compensate for by pushing up the Collisions and Smoothing factors on his "pants" object. But oh well. It's a small, niggling thing that most people won't notice unless they look really hard at it. I think it works — for now — or at least until I can delve into the clothing-fitting system inside Studio and see what's amiss there. Anyways — feast your eyes, and enjoy!
