The big news of today is that GPU rendering is here with DAZ Studio Iradium! This is a beta DAZ Studio 4.8 build, and the word is you can have it running alongside DS4.7. I’m going to try it out later, but with a product in a final stage of development I need to focus on that before experimenting with the new render engine. That said, GPU rendering is a very welcome addition and I can’t wait to see how Iray performs.
You can also get a 10% discount today on DAZ 3D gift cards, a perfect time to stock up for the rest of March Madness and to have funds in reserve for those big catch-up events too.
There are several new to store items today, and if you didn’t see it when I updated yesterday’s post, there are also new freebies and a new fast grab selection.
Stonemason’s Sci Fi Interior 2015 won’t need much introduction, if you are a Stonemason fan then you know all his stuff is top-notch. Also on the sci fi theme, the Sci Fi Moves Genesis: Volume 2 set is for both Genesis generations (that’s generation 5 and 6), so make sure you view the promo video if you are an animator or want to try your hand at some animation.
The high-definition add-ons are here for Monique and Darius. The Monique 6 HD Add-On and Darius 6 HD Add-On give you lots of extra face and body detail for the closest you can get to a real human model. If you are a Monique fan, take a look too at Brenhildgh for Monique 6. She’ll transform the base character with her pale skintone and striking makeup.
InaneGlory’s Photo Studio – Point and Shoot 3 is also out today. I have the Point and Shoot 2 version and can vouch for this being a versatile lighting solution that has become my go-to set for portraiture. I’ll be wishlisting this one for sure. Sedor’s Chair Poses for Victoria 6 and Monique 6 are a great complement to this set. I’m also keen to try BWC Skies – The Bundle, as you simply can never have too many good outdoor lighting options.
Another thing we can all use is those everyday bits and pieces you find around the house, so the inexpensive Everyday Toiletries by maclean is going to be one to pick up. The Muelsfell Vile Mushrooms are a fun fantasy set of fungi with a fantastic groundplane. Love that Deathshead! Buy a couple of items today and the Valandar Katar Hero weapons will be yours for free.
