Hi Mike, thank you very much for your kind words. I no longer post at rendo because I think that the 'moderators' are a bit too 'close minded' ... I have the feeling that they are a bit 'extremist puritans'.
Hi Mike ! Good to see you here ! Thank you for your kind words. I gave up posting on rendo because the moderators are a bit too 'close-minded' there. I have the impression that some of them are real 'bigots' ... I really hope to see you posting here. The site looks a bit messy at first, but once you are used to it, it is really nice. I hope you'll feel at home here.
Wow, dude, this is just... hyper-realistic! I just recently heard that there is an Octane plugin for Poser but it costs $100! Super-cool car, beautiful girl, great hair and outfit. Truly a render to be proud of!
Thank you very much ! I don't know much about the plugin for poser (I'm a daz Studio user ...), but there is really no need to buy the plugin. I have bought the plugin for daz Studio, but after having tried it for a while, I'm back to my old pipeline : Daz Studio + Octane standalone (I feel I have a better control ...).
Really? I thought it would be easier to set up everything straight from DAZ/Poser and not having to export everything (and being unable to do pose adjustments after you export). Is there a better control for lighting or something else in the standalone version?
It's mostly a matter of personal taste, I like the interface of the standalone version and I don't really feel 'at home' with the daz plugin (once again, I can't speak about poser plugin ...). Plus, in the last versions, the import process has been improved and is fasrter then before. As my machine is not the most powerful, I find more convenient to pose the render in octane while I work in Daz, so it speeds up. I'm not sure I can do that in the plugin version.
Keep in mind that you can modify the geometry and do pose adjustements as much as you want, at any moment, you just have to modify the scene in daz and re-export it, Octane keeps all the work you have done on lights, materials, cameras ..., because it is stored in the .ocs file.
Interesting, thank you! I also thought you have a powerful computer looking at your renders, they look like there is a lot of computing power behind them. It is often how you can use the tools you've got and not just getting the best or most expensive tools available. You proved your skill.
