Practising Lighting 1 by Zincau Practising Lighting 1 by Zincau

For the see details you have to zoom in or download it.


I always tell "Most important thing in a render how to use light". With correct lighting knowledge you can show up a rotten tomato as a crystal apple.

Last week one of my friend asked my render settings for

Mature Content

Leandra by Zincau
. And I told him at there (and repeating again) i used only default settings all of my works which is true.

So i decided to learn more about it on DAZ3D. And i realized i don't know how to use many features of DAZ3D. If you ask me, i can tell you, I only know 5% percent of DAZ. I really would like to learn all functions, but unfortunately i don't have time to for that. I wish i could.

And first time i clicked Tone mapping and Spectral Rendering submenus under Render options.

Now I would like to share my test results with you here.

No post work. All images rendered in DAZ, merged with PS and uploaded here!

On the first Image:

Tone mapping is ON
BHPC: 0.060
CB: 0.31
Saturation: 1.05
Gamma: Default
Spec Rendering: OFF

Used Lights:
1 specular light
2 mesh lights

On the Second image;

Spectral Rendering ON
SCI: neutral
SO: 1964
Tone Mapping: default

used 2 soft mesh lights

On the Third Image:
Everything on Default (it's my standard settings)

used 1 soft mesh light

As a result I can tell you;

Using tone mapping is unnecessary on DAZ. Basically, It does what photoshop do. If someone says "My render is pure Iray" Ask him, did he use Tone Mapping or not ? If Tonal mapping is not on default settings, It's not Pure IRay. Simple :)

For the Spectral Rendering. I really like it. I can use in future. It could be very useful at different circumstances. I have to work on it more for better understanding.

That's all. This time no artwork from me. I only shared my test results.

Hope it helps to you too.

It's more important than letter size available in DA  ;)

Who cares about the "phrase 100% iray"?
It sounds almost like a picture is worth less if it isn't "100% iray"... which is absolute nonsense.

Stuff like that just makes me smile. :D

If you are capable of improving something than just do it! :shrug:

Despite 5%, I think the third is good.

Very interesting to see these results. I have never used any of those settings either. I might have to play with them a bit some time soon. Thanks for sharing :-)
