Rendering and Lighting Solutions Workshop

Rendering and Lighting Solutions Workshop

Rendering in DAZ Studio can be as complex as you want it to be. The depth and breadth of options are remarkable, but at the same can be daunting. Since rendering is interconnected with the lighting AND the materials in a scene, it can be challenging to have patience in creating the look you want!

In this tutorial workshop, we pooled together the collective experience of several DAZ Studio artists, providing you with shortcuts, product recommendations, high value tips and shared artwork.

Tutorial workshop : 1 hour and 45 minutes
