DAZ Studio 4.7 Live Preview Rendering

DAZ Studio 4.7 – Live Preview Rendering


One of the coolest features of the new DS version is DAZ Studio 4.7 Live Preview Rendering. It’s live, it’s super quick and it’s amazing… I’ve done short video to show how it works:

And that’s it! If you like the video, please comment below and share with your friends..!

Keep rendering…

    I had no idea this feature was in DAZ 4.7 and will be a major key component for me from now on. It’s been maddening to make settings and wait forever and a day to render a scene only to find I need to make more scene changes, re-render and wait and wait. Thank you for this tutorial! Its like an Early Christmas present! 🙂

      Hey Daveman, yeah, it’s been a dream-feature for a long time… You’re very welcome, have fun!

    Great video as usual. I wish Daz had someone who could explain things half as good as you. If they did I would have tried the live preview by now!

    Any word if this new feature is optimized for openGL or openCL cards? Or did DAZ take the easy road and make it CPU and RAM intensive?

    • Val Cameron December 1, 2014 at 9:39 pm #

      I don’t have any info on this, but it does not seem to run on Open GL, since it produces final render quality, identical to a final render. I’m running a 64 bit version of DAZ, with 24 Gb RAM, and 8-cores (2.66 Ghz) so I don’t notice much slow-down at all… Would be great to hear input on other set ups, and if it runs as smoothly!

    Holy cow! That is really super cool! Now I seriously want to upgrade to 4.7, but I don’t think my poor laptop would be able to handle that.

      Hey Gabriella, yeah, totally! 🙂 I’m not sure what specs your lap top has, but it should handle a few lights without problems.

    Awesome. I love the feature. Thank you for doing a video about it. When I get into DS 4.7 again I’ll have to have a look at it. It would certainly save time on having to do all those spot renders unless one wants a closer look.

      You’re most welcome KC Riley-Gyer! Yes, a super time saver is what it is…

    I’m new to Daz (since April) and I have to say that I love it. I just up-graded and I like all the new improvements.

      Hey Janet, welcome to the amazing world of DAZ Studio!
