[Tutorial] Creating Dust And Atmosphere in Iray
A video version is here.
I learned this method from jag11 on the DAZ3D forums, who is thanked for permission to use it in this tutorial!
In 3Delight there's no way to create atmosphere or godrays (the rays that are visible when light passes through dust or particles).  There are products to facilitate (one of them mine), but most are either not the easiest to use or ultimately just a faking of a feature the engine lacks.  Many artists use postwork instead.
DAZ Studio 4.8 Beta's new Iray engine also lacks a native mechanism for creating atmospheric volumes - but it can be easily convinced to produce them!  They will come from your lights and react to objects in your scene.  I did a test image of Jack Tomalin's Chapter House Iray scene (free to Plat Club members

7 DAZ3D things I Wish I Knew When I started DAZ3D
Inspirired by  from :iconburritorat2:
Only applies to Iray mostly
PS: I'm by no means an expert in DAZ3D and I'm speaking from my experience.
1. Faster Renders
1.1 Activated OptiX Acceleration  
I didn't know about this until 1 year into DAZ3D. It basically makes your renders 50-100% faster if you have a Nvidia GPU
1.2 If you activate Iray Preview mode and wait until the grey turns into the iray preview, it will start to render a lot faster than when you just hit render out of Texture Shaded Mode. I'd recommend saving the scene before you do that though, as DAZ3D crashes sometimes using this method.
1.3 For some reason when you disable the CPU and let it only render on the GPU it is somewhat faster or only a bit slower than GPU and CPU. You'll also be able to do other stuffs likes browsing the interwebs while rendering. This only works if you have a Nvidia GPU.
You could also lower the CPU cores used by DAZ3D

Lucy's New Style
**Update:  I wasn't happy with the eyes, so I made some changes and she looks even better now

Lucy was the first character I developed and she's been very popular on here, BUT, I was never really happy with her hair. I finally found a hair style that I think suits her - you can judge for yourself. I'm still working on the skin shader and it's getting better, I think
