iRay Skin Settings

**iRay Skin Settings Version 2**

So here my iray skin settings by request, cant wait to see what you guys can do with them :)

Blood vessel maps:…

Normal Map Creator:…

**Something I forgot to mention: as you've noticed I don't use the top coat layer, leaving it free for after effects - for example should you want your character to look wet you can add a top layer to simulate a water layer on the skin. This works particularly well on the lips allowing you to add a glossy lipstick layer essentially

I took the files and placed them in a layer in photoshop, left the base layer blank to place the skin texture in and did a top layer for the "red"color added over the hands,feet,& ears. I find that you might need to reduce the opacity on the leg veins to around 89% to prevent a difference in the shade of torso to legs. Thanks for the help it has made a huge difference in my Iray renders!

Interesting! Gonna try your method for translucency maps and normals. Hopefully I can get some good normals from these bump maps that I have.

I'm just starting to use Daz 4.8 and this new Iray can be pretty confusing. Thank you for posting your settings with explanations. Much appreciated!! :)

No problem, remember it's just a starting point - the best way to learn is to experiment :D 
Victor2112's avatar
True true  :)  But it is nice to have a starting point to work off of.

Again, thank you for posting this. :)

Thanks for sharing. I'm still a bit new and I think this will help remove that 'plastic' look from my renders.

You're welcome - and remember these are just a guide, fiddle with these until you get a look you like
