LUXUS by HellboySoto LUXUS by HellboySoto
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... :)

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!!

Love the pic! I haven't figured out how to use Luxus yet...I'm jealous. I have the plug-in but I don't see how to transfer the renders back and forth. Very frustrating.

Impressive work as usual. What was the use of the Geometry Shell? I assume that must be the DAZ phyton. What did you use to create the depression in the skin where the snake hugs him?
Reply
:iconhellboysoto:
HellboySoto Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks.
Geometry Shell creates a copy of the model on top of the original one like a skin layer. I turned the snake Geometry Shell to glass with clear volume to have a really shiny transparent coat over the regular glossy skin.
Then I used collision detection, but it created a little deformation in that area that I corrected with postwork.

So this collision detection and Geometry Shell are options in DAZ? Where do I find them at and more info how to use?

Is Luxus easier to use then Reality 2?
Reply
:iconhellboysoto:
HellboySoto Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Some people say so. In my case it was harder because I am so used to Reality and there are many options in Luxus. But after a while it became more natural. I found it easier then Reality now.
I guess it depends on the user. :)
