Product Information

  • Required Products: None

The Easy Environments series for Daz Studio and Poser combines high-res 360° Sky & Landscape backgrounds with terrains fit for close range shots.

This set takes you right down into a fiery hell.

The sky is covered with thick clouds, the barren landscape ravaged by lava streams, ashes and smoke cover the main mountain peak. The central rock offers lots of nice places for your characters, from lookouts to a small stairway winding up.

You can hide/remove the frozen stone angels one-by-one if you want your characters to take those prominent spots.

Fires, smoke and ashes are not postworked into the previews, they are part of the set and can also be hidden.

Lighting for Poser and Daz Studio is included.

The Skysphere can be loaded separately for easy use with other scenes.

The file formats are native .DUF for Daz Studio 3Delight and Iray, and .PP2 for Poser.

Additional Details

  • Iray:
    • Working with the Iray version I recommend to use “texture shaded” with no preview lighing in your main viewport until you need to set up fine details. The Iray preview is quite slow (at least on my system) and takes a while to calculate opacity, which makes it hard to see anything.
    • Also note that you`ll likely want to load both, “Hell Iray” and “Hell Sky Iray”, the later adds the sky to your Render/Environment settings.
  • Poser:
    • Not much to say here, don`t let the lighting preview fool you, Poser(10) seems to have a limit for how many lights it takes into account, so it will look differently in the final render.
  • Ashes:
    • The set has two “Ash” objects. “AshesMain” holds ash close to the terrain, “AshesOS” is like a ring around the main area.
    • If you do renders with a camera pointing from the outside towards the center, that outer ring often adds a nice dirty effect, but could also get in your way. In that case you can simply rotate AshesOS along Y to bring it in a better suited position.
    • Of course you can also hide/delete both layers anytime if you don`t want the effect.
  • Shackles:
    • The shackles are separate objects, not merged to the chains, and have proper centers (pivots) for scaling.

That allows you to scale them to your needs, if you want to remove the shackled angel and place your own characters there.

  • SkySphere:
    • Unlike most other sets the lighting of the sky is rather diffuse, so imo it`s ok to rotate(Y) it without worry about the lighting. That way you can easily frame the parts of the sky you like best.
  • As always on those environments, wide camera angles usually give you more spectacular views because they capture more of the sky.
