Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Become a master of skin shading! Is skin of your figure too pale, too reddish, too dark ? Is its glossy look too rough, too strong, or not enough, too smooth, too dry, or too wet ? Simply select your figure and adjust the skin look in the blink of an eye using Ultimate Iray Skin Manager.

Ultimate Iray Skin Manager is the best and most efficient tool ever made to adjust, customize, or even completely set up any existing Iray skin (Generation 4, Genesis, Genesis 2, 3 and 8).

It is also the only tool including the possibility to change of the gamma of the image maps of all the skin surfaces of the selected figures, on the exact properties you choose, in only two clicks.

Thanks to a clear and synthetic overview and control of all the surface key properties determining the final skin look, sorted by categories of effects and organized in four tabs (Tone, Gamma, Gloss/Bump, Additional Effects), you will be able to reach the skin characteristics you have in your mind fast, easily and efficiently. The organization of these key properties has been carefully thought so that everybody, beginners and advanced users, gain a huge amount of time, and get a clear overview of the whole skin shader while they customize the skin of a figure.

The rest of the interface has been developed in order to add a maximum of useful additional options and a great comfort of use, this is why you can directly from within the interface decide on which surfaces you work (skin including or excluding Lips and/or Nails, Lips only or Nails only), but you can also change the Viewport Style, the Environment Mode, the camera you use, the orbit node, zoom, and angle of the Perspective View, open the pdf documentation, etc, etc.

Don't be afraid to test new sets of parameters because save and load tools are also included directly in the interface. At any time during your skin shader adjustment, you can save in text files full or partial presets of the properties used by Iray Ultimate Skin Manager for your skin shader without leaving the interface. This way, you can load them later on, during the same or another session, on the same or on another figure, of the same or another generation. A specific script is included in order to transfer the new properties of the figure to the anatomical elements surfaces.

Thanks to Iray Ultimate Skin Manager, not only you will find a synthetic and logical organization of the parameters you can change to reach the skin look you want, but also it will help you to make the skin adjustment process more methodical, faster, easier and more comfortable.

Additional Details

  • Please note, and this is very important, that this was made only for very specific usages, such as, for instance, the use of an old converted Iray Uber material for Genesis 9, or to help people who converted themselves the figure shader to Iray Uber to properly finalize the skin shader. In those cases, all the skin and nails surfaces must have been converted to Iray Uber (or the manager will reject them). Please note that if you use the save option on a Genesis 9 figure and then load this preset on a previous generation, the lips will be set to black (you’ll have a step outside of the script to copy paste the face surface on the lips).
  • In practice, if you plan to use Genesis 9 figures “normally” – with Genesis 9 PBRSkin materials -, this product is not made for you. In this case of figure the best product for you is “Ultimate PBRSkin Manager”, which will cover both your Genesis 8.1 and Genesis 9 figures using their original materials.
  • As a reminder for figure generations, the best choice for Genesis to Genesis 8 is “Ultimate Iray Skin Manager”, since converters exist for previous Generations. On the contrary, the best choice for Genesis 8.1 and Genesis 9 is “Ultimate PBRSkin Manager”. Please note Genesis 8 figures can exist both with Iray Uber and PBRSkin shader but for PRBSkin, this is most of the times only for the latest Genesis 8 figures, released after the release of Genesis 8.1.
