Iray Surfaces And What They Mean

Iray Surfaces And What They Mean

I've updated and corrected this article based on DAZ's documentation.  You should read that if you want more information.  This will continue to be more of a "plain talk" breakdown. Let us begin with the different types of shaders from the "Base Mixing" dropdown at the top.  Choosing one of these will hide or gray out some options and reveal others. The Iray shader behaves as though it has three layers: The "base" layer, the "metallic flakes" layer on top of that, and the "top coat layer" on top of that.  It is possible to turn off the top two layers and not use their settings, but the ability to use them is a property this shader has that

Time flies

Life has been awefully hectic.  So much happening right now. Currently I have been able to do some of my own photography which has been nice.  I love the stock photos that the stock artists have provided me, but I do enjoy doing my photography too, especially since that means that I can sell prints without having to ask a stock artist's permission. I hope everyone is enjoying the new stuff that I've posted these last few months.  I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the photos with the cleavage have gotten the most views, but oh well, that's life.  Lori is, to a degree, flattered.  I might have more of her in the future depending on when m

Gosh, it's been forever since I wrote in this thing.  Oh well.  There have been some new additions here.  I may post a few more in the near future.  Not really sure.  Trying to spend most of my time dedicated to Furmentation http://xodin.keenspace.com I really to get a good high quality still camera so I can start taking my own stock photos for these wallpapers.

Just an Update.  I go back to school in a couple days.  I now officially have a Prints account btw.  What I don't have is prints for sale.  I'd like input from people on which wallpapers in my gallery people would like to see converted into printable versions.  Suggestions?

Hi there. With reference to this deviation: masterxodin.deviantart.com/art… I'd just like to point out that in both Mawdryn Undead and The Five Doctors, the Fifth Doctor clearly states that he's regenerated FOUR times, not three. Mawdryn Undead is also the story in which it becomes established canon that a Time Lord can only regenerate twelve times, so I'm afraid this theory isn't going to wash with the informed fan community.
You are quite correct, and in point of fact Moffat has recently come out in an even more recent interview to confirm that all of the Doctor's regenerations have indeed been used up (thanks to the meta-crisis), meaning that it should (in theory) be impossible for him to regenerate in to Capaldi's Doctor.  Thus it seems Moffat intends to directly address how the Doctor will get around the regeneration limit in the Christmas special rather than hold off to address it at the end of a later regeneration.

First of all, love your work (the rune ones are the best), second of all, would it be possible for me to get a gif like you gave viper9000?

Cheers!
