This community workshop is to have a focus on lighting and rendering your scene with DAZ Studio’s Iray render engine. We’ll have a focus on 3 point, HDR and Sky Dome lighting as well as tips, tricks and resources to help rendering with Iray.
This is a community workshop. If you have a useful tip, render or lighting/Iray product to share, even if it’s just for a few minutes then please get in touch!
