Update from 1.3: 

I've made a major update where you can use the focal length and width to zoom in at least but not out. Also locked the FOV camera to RED so it stays red even when copied and pasted to a normal camera.


Introduction:

I've always avoided rendering interiors because it takes super long and you can't use hdri's without removing all the walls so I build a solution for those problems: an Iray interior camera.


the Iray interior camera is a camera I made myself for rendering interiors in DAZ3D to make rendering super fast.
It contains iray section planes on the back and on the camera that are matched with the standard view of a normal camera. The section planes will cut trough everything in iray mode that is not in view of the camera which means it will take less time and let outside light in.
It makes rendering interiors render in at least 1/2 the time it usually does and lets light from HDRIs in, you may still have to remove the ceiling though.

Instructions:

- To load the camera just download it and put the folder "Camera Presets" inside the DAZ Content folder. Or just drag the duf (not the .png) file into your viewport within DAZ3D and you should see a wild camera with the name "Iray interior camera" appear.
- You must rendering trough the Iray camera once it is loaded. To do that click on "Perspective View" on the top right in the viewport and choose Iray Interior Camera

I couldn't live without it so I decided to share it.

Updates from 1.1:

* Planes are now hidden, as they could cause a shadow on closeups
* Made the FOV Red, to distinguish it better from other cameras
* Made it available to download from DeviantArt instead of from my stash

Tested it on 3 different devices and it worked fine. If there are any problems drop a comment or send me a note.

Updates from 1.2:

* You'll now find the Camera at Camera Presets > Iray Interior Camera 1.3 inside your content library 
* Focal width and focal length are now locked so you can copy and paste it to any camera, even when they have the focal width and focal length changed.
* Added a thumbnail to it

Upcoming in the future:
Will make metadata for it.

Thank you very much for sharing this! I look forward to giving it a shot. Having to remove walls for interior renders is such a pain, and on some props isn't possible- so I've just not been using that whole chunk of my library. I can't wait to try this out. <3

Not sure what happened to the comment I made and submitted.  Anyway, I'm not able to download the file. I use winzip and 7z both will extract rar files. Am I doing something wrong on my end, or is the link working?  Do I have to have the actual rar program on my PC to download the file?  Thanks. I don't know how to sign up for email notifications for threads here, so I'll just have to check back.

"7zip will work.

It downloads well for me. 

Maybe try logging in and out and then try again. "

Sorry to bother you about this, but I've clicked on the download button a few times, and it won't download. Is there something going on my end or is the link working?  Do I need to have rar on my PC? I have 7z and winzip, and both will work with rar files. Thanks.

Yes.
The value of this is easily 100000$ but I give it for free because I feel like everyone should have it.

This is actually very interesting, thank you so much! :D I'll definitely try it out!
I sometimes use the focal width and legth, but this will surely be useful!

You can lower the focal width actually to zoom in, but you should never zoom out.
I'll update it in version 1.4

I use it when the perspective I want it's not possible inside small walls! Or if I want to make a point-of-view without taking the actual head ^^
But I've noticed that your camera crops out everything already, so that's not a problem I guess! One thing I found hard was the lighting, at the beginning I didn't understand why it was so bright! Then I put "Scene Only" for the lights!
Oh, the default setting doesn't have the headlamp off!
In any case great work! :D
What should I do if I wanted to create multiple comic pages from the same scene? If it cuts everything and I need the other part?

When making a new scene just copy your current camera with strg c and paste it with strg f to the interior camera.
You always have to render trough the interior camera.

Thank you for sharing. :)
Because I like making interior scenes, I really need to test this camera. ^^
