I love all things escapist. Fantasy, scifi, alternate reality. Reading, movies, games. Drawing, painting, CG.

I am currently working towards a career in graphic design and web publishing, and have nearly completed my Bachelor of Computing Studies degree towards this end.

More Iray tests by shaungsimpson
More Iray tests
Ok this is CPU only rendered (as will be all my Iray renders until I can get an nVidia card)

These are pretty much default settings. There is no ground or sky in the scene, this is just based on the environment variables in the render settings tab. There are SO MANY settings to play with and tweak.

It is important to note that these renders were in NO WAY made for amazing quality, I'm just testing the engine. That considered I think they came out pretty well in regards to quality. I would love to see what is possible with dedicated efforts to push the system!

Just testing out the beta of Daz 4.8. Interesting initial results. Definitely worth exploring more, possibly with more inspired content, this was simply a few items slapped together to test the render engine. Took a little while, and have had some crashes already, but overall it is showing potential.

I have an AMD system and card although I'm not sure if that affected the outcome at all. As more people play and post images I'm sure I'll get more of an idea bout how this works.

Still missing alot and having to update how i do alot since all my old render setting presets, skins etc are still in limbo. Getting happy with basic results though, and this new motherboard and cpu definitely seem to make the rendering process MUCH faster. Really glad in a way the MOBO died, otherwise it may have been a while before I could justify the upgrade.

Anyway, Jedi girl is Jedi. 
So my motherboard died after 5 years of very rigorous use. That of course means reinstalling windows. Which means trying to transfer by many-fractured runtime to the new drive from the old... I feel the people who wrote the Geneva convention against cruel and unusual punishment may have been talking about things like this...

I'm slowly getting there, and I also seem to be fixing some issues from the old one in the process, but it is taking a LONG time, and is really fiddly. Thankfully Daz Install Manager made those products easy, but everything non-Daz related has had to be analysed and copied across. Worst is I still have yet to see if the surface settings etc that I used on nearly everything as my shortcuts will come across ok. Fingers crossed.

I also hope to save any of my characters I have previously created.
