Product Information

  • Required Products: None

VDB Laser Blades is a collection of seven highly detailed, hand-textured laser sabers that leverage the VDB capabilities of Daz Studio to create accurate halo/glow effects without resorting to bloom filtering, camera tricks, or additional geometry that weighs down your scene. Each saber consists of three independent objects; the handle, the blade, and the volume node (glow), and each can be scaled, translated, and rotated independently of the others. The blade of each saber scales from its base, so you can shorten or lengthen the blade easily. Need a brighter or dimmer glow? Change the density multiplier slider in the Surfaces tab. Each saber has multiple material zones, so you can apply your own materials if desired.

Included are wearable pose presets for each saber to load them into your character's hands (in a normal or reverse grip), 20 full body poses (and mirrors) with unique adjustments for masculine and feminine character meshes, as well as eight color options for the blade and glow volume.

Additional Details

  • To apply chosen blade color, select the “Blade” node(s) in both the Scene tab and the Surfaces tab, and then apply desired Blade shader preset. Then select the “Volume” node(s) in both the Scene tab and the Surfaces tab and apply the desired Volume shader preset. It is possible to mix and match color combinations.
  • Change volume glow intensity by adjusting the Density Multiplier slider. This is very helpful to increase the visibility of the glow when rendering against a transparent or brightly colored background.
  • All blade shaders have embedded optional displacement maps to make the blades ragged and chaotic in appearance. Adjust it with the Displacement Strength slider in the Surfaces tab.
