My first image with Luxus. The DAZ Studio to Luxrender plugin.
Genesis and snake with Glossy Translucent with Homogeneous volume for SSS. Snake with Geometry Shell with Glass 2 with Clear volume for an extra shiny coat.
One plane converted to light.
Still learning but I’m officially IMPRESSED with Luxus (and the awesome price, I just had to buy it and glad I did!).

SCENE: DAZ Studio 4.5 Pro
RENDER: LuxRender via Luxus for DAZ Studio

hellboy, according to interest and my curiosity, how is Luxus compatible with zbrush? I mean, about a decade ago I argued this before that it doesn't make a difference which is better, because they both have reality rendering/aka real skin textureing. But most say its completely futile because Luxus does not use the proper blendering and sculpting like they do in zbrush.


I think its all bull S. Because the image above speaks for itself.

what your opinion???

They bare both different things. Luxus is a bridge to render your DAZ Studio scene in LuxRender, while ZBrush is a complete modeling, and rendering software. I can’t say which one is better between LuxRender and ZBrush as I’ve never rendered in ZBrush. All I know is they both are capable of outstanding results. :)

Well to jump the shark on that note, I just got the notion that "blender" to rising to the top in the 3d world, and I just downloaded it a while ago. And it seem that blender and luxrender and Daz Studio together is unimaginable, and realistically valid for any kind of rendering and texturing. Zbursh on the other hand.../from what I was told/ is lacking in "hard surfacing" for sculpting, and some other software features.

So I think blender is the right match for me :)

And thanks for the update :)

Great realistic look! 

I´m also impressed by luxrender (for poser) since a while... ( But I did not release something rendered with it untill now...). The result you have in your pic is awesome! 

I faved it into my ´3D Tutorials´ fav-folder because of your great hints in the image description. Thank you for them... :)

Ah sorry, I confused the Reality Plugin with the pure Luxus plugin for Daz I think... :D

Hi there can you give some tips about lighting ,lot of people in the carrara group have trouble with the noise , this looks stunning.

Hi, sorry, I don't use Carrara.
When it comes to LuxRender, the noise will go eventually. It will take more or less time depending on the scene. Reflective surfaces takes a lot more to clean up.
If you use an area light, make sure it has as few polygons as possible, as each polygon is a light source, increasing render times with each additional one.
Not sure what else to say about it :)
Thank you!!

On a scale of 1 to 10, this gets a 25.

Wonderful work - sexy and tasteful. what impresses me here is how solid the torso feels. So real that I expect that if I could touch it, I'd feel a heart beating under the chest and sweat on my fingertips :)

The Rob Elite textures never fail. And well, Genesis shapes in a really nice way, so it's a good combination. :)

Could you explain how you made SSS work through Luxus? Or where I can find information on how to achieve this quality of skin rendering? It's amazing!

Just figured you already have... never mind!
