[Tutorial] Creating Dust And Atmosphere in IrayA video version is here.[Tutorial] Creating Dust And Atmosphere in Iray1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I learned this method from jag11 on the DAZ3D forums, who is thanked for permission to use it in this tutorial!
In 3Delight there's no way to create atmosphere or godrays (the rays that are visible when light passes through dust or particles). There are products to facilitate (one of them mine), but most are either not the easiest to use or ultimately just a faking of a feature the engine lacks. Many artists use postwork instead.
DAZ Studio 4.8 Beta's new Iray engine also lacks a native mechanism for creating atmospheric volumes - but it can be easily convinced to produce them! They will come from your lights and react to objects in your scene. I did a test image of Jack Tomalin's Chapter House Iray scene (free to Plat Club members

The first thing I had to do was create a sample. What would the pages look like? What is a Killbook?
In the story, before Gabriel breaks out of Level-9, he is introduced to an "Agent-O, a character that gives Gabriel the documents needed to begin this revenge quest. Inside of the documents are bios and information on all of the characters Gabriel will meet/team-up with/or kill.

In the deviantART booth, we witnessed something a little magical when the voice came over the loudspeaker to announce that Comic-Con was closed at 5:00 pm sharp, the remaining straggling attendees and exhibitors packing up stopped what they were doing and burst into applause. It was a mixture of relief, pride, and fulfillment of a successful convention.
Someone yelled, "See you in 365 days!" and there was a true moment of community with everyone in earshot. Sure, it's a sad sentiment, but it gives us all something to look forward to, and the months ahead will be filled with the happy memories of all we accomplished over the past week. Friends met that stop by every year, new friends, new properties to become fans of, new comic books to read and

From natural disasters to historical celebrations, entertainment milestones to tearful goodbyes, our community spoke out like no other community can — artistically, creatively, and emotionally.

I'm putting almost every sword into storage and yes, planning to make more of them. I'll tell about that later on. New Elucidator is basicly sold and Kurikara is still reserved for the DA user who commissioned it, BUT if she isn't getting the money together by 31.5.2013, I will sell it for anyone who gives me the money. I have given her time 6 months to pay it. It's plenty of time and I know that money isn't growing in trees. I do know that fact too well.
One good thing is that I return into work 6.5.2013. Not into my original work station, but I hope that I could return in there too soon. Work is work and they pays me to do my job. I have been layoffed around 3 months now, but I have s

Well that was interesting...So I went online and looked up how I can communicate with my spiritual guide or guardian angel. I read the steps on how to do this and just got finished trying it. I said a quick prayer for protection and then I meditated and calmed my mind down. Once I felt calm, I called out for my spirit guide. When I did that, I began to feel really odd, as if I was being lifted out of my physical body and the tips of my fingers began to tingle. Then I began to see colors and a purple-like vortex (kinda like the Nether Portal in Minecraft) and then I asked several times "What do you want me to know?" I didn't get any responses but I read that the sign might come later on in the day/week/month. I then felt myself becoming aware of my physical self, as if I was being lowered back down into my body. I closed my hands together and said "Thank you" and then opened my eyes. I felt (and still do feel) really light-headed but I read that that's normal when you come out of a trance. I've also got a headacheWell that was interesting...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
