Tuesday the 1st of July brings the 1st ever issue of DS Creative, The magazine for Daz Studio fans, packed with news, Interviews, galleries, competitions, tutorials and Yes you guessed it Freebies.

This  is some good news for all of us, since it will give a new path for some of us to try to get our renders published

Thanks to :iconascavilya: for the heads up about this
there is also a facebook group…

I am looking for some help. I am very new to daz3d 4.8 and horrendous render times. I have a macbook pro and was wondering how I shorten these times but still get quality.

It would depend on the rendering engine used, I tend to use 3Delight so some of the suggestions might work differently if you use iRay or not at all, but some quick tricks is to turn off visibility of items not in the frame of the render, setting scenes up as layered renders to be composited later helps in speeding things up ie rather than rendering a full scene with 20 props and five figures, render a props only scene, renders for each character, each of these saved as a .png with no background and then render a scene with the environment only and composite the renders in photoshop.
Changing the shadows on lights will also help with speed, shadows turned off speeds things up considerably, if shadows are needed then turn off for all but one or two lights, and keep in mind mapped shadows will render quicker than ray traced shadows.

Also a good source of tutorials and tips I have found is DS Creative Magazine

Hope this helps
