She got down, but she never got tired
She's gonna make it through the night
Another NaNoWriMo outtake - moments before the showdown.
DAZ3D Iray Render 3K Iterations - no post work, filter or bloom, no denoise!
Animal, person and god in a single entity.
Nothing compares to a human being in its finest hour.

As you can see there is some grain, but I did not denoise it on purpose, because at times the grain actually looks better. But yes, lighting like that can be extremely tricky. Worst case I would probably do the scene brighter than it is supposed to be and post work it. If you got whiteouts, you might need to do a 32bit canvas.
But honestly, those scenes simply take insane amounts of crunching. 4k dark scenes with atmosphere rarely go below 12 hours
12 hours ?? ???? wow .... well did you tried Octane plugin for DAZ ? its free - i was trying it cos people says its faster ...faster but grainy too ... but i have no big experiences with daz studio ...
Yes, but at least when I (or rather my wife) tried octane, the bridge wasn't capable of transferring iray shaders... just the basic stuff like alpha, diffuse, gloss and the like. And given the myriads of materials DAZ stuffs into a picture , it wasn't an option. Octane is toted for it's surface manipulation interface, but obviously nobody really wants to work on hundreds or rather thousands of textures and settings in a mindmap treeview kind of thingy...
And 12 hours would be fast, I think my personal record was 32 hours, but that was on an old GTX960 - the picture never worked out, lol.
Actually it sounds worse than it is. I usually prepare stuff and then have it render overnight or when I am at work. So I don't mind. Also I have a second system available so I can work on two pictures at a pinch, and that's pretty much my limit and I'm the bottleneck.
