Getting Set Up



If youve been using DAZ|Studio since the beta-testing stage, youre no stranger to the Surfaces palette. But, have you really played with every option youve got? Im going to show you in this tutorial that not all of what you see is what you get. Sometimes, what you see in the Open GL preview pane will be something completely different than what youll get in the 3Delight render.

First using the free Primitives Plugin for DAZ|Studio create a sphere. It doesnt matter what size you make it, just make a sphere ;).

Wow, didn't see that there were comments! Thanks, guys! As for where you save them, you can save them wherever you want. It depends on what kind of material you're saving. If it's just a shader preset, I save them in the Shader Presets folder ;)

Thanks, MS. That was indeed simple and straightforward. Just one question though -- where do you save the shader you create?

Thank You. That was easy, informative and very useful. I just wish there were more tutorials like that.

Easy to stomach; had thought it was going to be a nother horrible complicated shader tutorial, but was pleasantly surprised. Entry-level. Thank you.
