Pride

ALL LOVE IS EQUAL

Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

For all my fellow newbs, beginners, or those coming back to #dazstudio  after years and going, "WHAT BUTTON DO?" 

I present to you my limited, also beginner knowledge and collected favorite #tutorials on the absolute starting point for #lighting in #DAZ, enjoy! Hope it helps. 



1.) thinkdrawart.com/daz-studio-ir…

2.) Tip: using 3 lights in any scene is often a key element in DAZ and photography : thinkdrawart.com/how-i-light-m…

3.) More on 3 point lighting: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three-po…

4.) Using HDRI’s can also help. I often use an HDRI *and* lights in a scene (depending on how bright the hdri is.) HRDI’s called “diffuse HDRI’s” are also amazing for creating soft, yet clear light with very little noise.

example 1: NO lights, just the HRDI, rendered in less than 10 minutes pinkatron2000.deviantart.com/a…

Free diffuse HDRI’s a) www.valzheimer.info/2015/10/va…
Free diffuse HDRI’s b) lasaucisse.deviantart.com/art/…

HOW to use HDRI’s and dome: docs.daz3d.com/lib/exe/fetch.p…

5.) Some super reflective surfaces can cause noise. I tried a render with a single spot light, a reflective floor and reflective cloak. Artifacts and noise galore. Sometimes changing or lowering how “shiny” a surface is can help.

6.) Beginners guide to DAZ lighting video: www.daz3d.com/forums/discussio…

Melissa Pence is a 40 year old pink addict with a side of glitter adoration. When she isn't hepped up like a coke head on several cups of coffee, she's either attempting to try Digital 3D art using DAZ Studio and the power of her learner's tears, a wife to a giant Star Wars nerd, mother of 5 cats and three birds. She also enjoys picking random things to learn without any experience and wondering why it's so frustrating and nothing's working right and oh god is that ON FIRE?
