Look out for a couple of deals this weekend, as well as continuing promotions from the last few days.
If photo-realism is your aim in your 3d work, you should investigate Reality 4. It’s on a 30% discount all weekend, taking the price down from $49.95 to $34.95. I won’t need to sing the praises of this LuxRender plugin for DAZ Studio (or there’s a Poser edition, also on discount), the promo images speak for themselves. There’s also a preview video on the product page, and for further ideas of what you could achieve with Reality, check out art created by other artists using this plugin. Note: Hivewire 3D customers have the option of getting Reality 4 there instead — the prices are comparable.
Buy a new release and a new Grab Bag promotion will let you buy additional items (from a selection of almost 2000) at just $5 each. Sounds good, but watch yourself with this one as there are a lot of products included which require other products, i.e. clothing textures, add-ons for environments. That Carrara Village Bundle looks great if you are a Carrara user, with a $25 saving, and there are also Carrara shaders in the selection. For DAZ Studio and Poser users, take a look at the Cornucopia3D buildings which are stand-alone, or there are 3 Merlin Studios products which are worth $5 and more of anyone’s money. Totally Bazaar 1 and both Ye Olde Clothe packs are included in this sale, so if you are a Fabricator fan make sure you pick those up. Note that once you scroll back as far as generation 4 stuff, you’re getting to products that tend to go on sale fairly often.
See the banners on the DAZ Store Homepage for the current promotions. Scroll down this post for current freebies and fast grab links.
