Reality celebration!! 60% off on Reality and all presets for two days only. Tell your friends.

On August 29th Reality 1.0 went on sale at the DAZ store and rendering for Studio and Poser changed forever.

Physics-Based Rendering–PBR for short–was a new technique for the 3D world in general and it was unheard of in the Poser/DAZ Studio universe. Reality introduced the concept and dominated the market for the years to come. 3D artists around the world became able to use lighting and materials as they were supposed to be: by absolutely accurate emulation of physical properties, instead of gross approximation as it was done before with renderers like 3Delight and Firefly. It changed the Poser/DAZ Studio market almost overnight.

For the past six years I had the privilege of serving this community of enthusiastic artists and making a living while doing so. You have welcomed Reality with open arms and produced an amazing body of work. I made new friends and discovered a world of possibilities that I could only imagine before. You provided great feedback and helped making Reality better.

Thank you very much for your continued support and friendship. To celebrate this milestone Reality and all presets will be on sale at 60% off for just two days.

Keep on rendering!

Reality artist extraordinaire Marcel2586 has generously given us a series of props to be used with Reality. Not satisfied with doing just that, Marcel also provided exhaustive tutorials and demos on how to employ the textures and props. All this happened in the Reality Forums, and if you are not a member you are missing out. The forums are free and they are the best place where to find great Reality information, support, and tutorials.

We will be moving to a new server tonight, June 15th. There are no changes scheduled to the website. We just need a new server, and we need to upgrade the OS, which has been unchanged for about five years. I have been planning this move for a while, and I hope that there will be no interruptions besides the few minutes needed to do the switch.

But, if any unplanned event throws a wrench in the works, please bear with us. The switch will happen at around 8:00pm EST today.
Thank you for your patience.

Dramatic new looks for your images, without using Photoshop

Reality has many ways to make you save money. Not only it gives you the most realistic results, but it includes many features that, with other solutions, require additional products. This makes it much more convenient, software companies like to use the term “cost effective,” than any other rendering system. And that is because, among other things, Reality uses the most awesome renderer of them all: LuxRender. In this article, we are going to see how we can achieve several different looks for the renderer image without even whispering “Photoshop.”

Desaturate, baby!

About Reality

You are stepping out of the world of biased rendering and into the domain of real light.
Things are bound to be a bit different.

Welcome to the official Reality Art Gallery. Reality is the plug-in for Poser and DAZ Studio that enables you to render your scenes using Physics-Based Rendering. Reality pioneered this idea in 2010 and it is today the most advanced rendering solution for both Poser and DAZ Studio. Reality users who create art with both programs benefit from using the same interface.

You can find more information about Reality at the Pret-a-3D site

Here you can find many images that show you what can be done with Reality Poser and DAZ Studio Edition. The results are nothing less than amazing and they were created with inexpensive software that can give multi-thousand dollar programs a serious challenge. We call it "the end of high-end envy" :)

We always look for new content for this gallery so please submit your work to one of our galleries and make sure to describe in your image description the toolchain used. For example add one of the following:
  • Toolchain: Poser+Reality
  • Toolchain: DAZ Studio & Reality

Also please add the #Reality_plugin hashtag so that we can find your artwork among all the deviantArt images.

Before submitting make sure that you have read the submission guidelines to see if your images match the type of content that we feature.

Happy rendering!

Tried over at the site, but never got any answer:

Maybe you lost my email, but I never received any news about the transfer from RuntimeDNA to this site, nor any news about any future releases of Reality, and I have purchased Reality for both Poser and DAZStudio.
I do have several questions:
(1) Being a Macintosh user, I'm wondering of the Open CL has ever been fixed, so that the Graphics cards can be used for rendering.
(2) If this hasn't been fixed on El Capitan, there is a new version of the OS that supposedly will be released this fall. Will the Open CL be fixed in this new version?
(3) When rendering Black people in Reality, that is, in LUX, the face and bodies of the figures do not match together. Has this been fixed in any new version of Reality?
I'm just asking, just trying to find out what's what. Can anyone answer any of these questions. If so, thanks.

Sorry that you didn't receive the news. We emailed everybody in our mailing list about the move to the new server and we posted a message in every board of the old forums. I don't know if DAZ removed the message. In any case, I sorry to say that I never received any email from you, maybe it was sent to the wrong address?
Our forums are accessible via the website, and they are at . Unfortunately dA does not send notifications if you post in here so the forums are the best place to post your questions. In any case:

1) There is an article in our blog about OCL and Mac OS. The gist is that El Capitan, the latest release, has better drivers. If you have a new card, with 2GB or more, it might work. Gibve it a try, at the worst Lux will crash.
2) We don't know. We will have to test it when Apple will release it.
3) That's not an issue with Reality, the two materials are set differently. Make them equal in all aspects and the image will match.

Ciao Paolo! volevo chiederti qual era la differenza se una mia immagine viene accettata nella "gallery" di reality plugin e se viene accettata nel "group gallery" di reality plugin. Grazie
Pret-A-3D Featured By Owner May 31, 2016
Nessuna differenza, la galleria e' la "group gallery".
