I'm excited to share this fantastic offer where you can get your virtual hands on Corel Painter 2019 for just $25 :-)
I'm getting it myself after watching many videos of what you can do with it. It seems to me like the ideal way to give a different look to 3d renders, mainly for (no surprises here) the painted look. I have software such as Dynamic auto painter which is also very cool for this kind of thing but really want more control with the ability to actually digitally paint over base renders using different brushes.
Check the offer on humblebundle.com here - Corel Painter 2019 for $25 (usually price is around $350 on amazon etc + you also get Pinnacle Studio 23 Ultimate video editor included in the price!) -offer ends 09 October 2019- ;-)
This is a set of Daz Studio light presets using the "Secluded Beach" HDRI and backplates from hdrihaven.com. For each background image I have set the environment rotation and camera angle so that the light/shadows roughly match. Use the camera zoom in/out up/down/left/right to position your subject. Use the f/stop setting in render settings>Tone Mapping to adjust the exposure. As these mostly side or back lit, it might be worth adding a fill-in light or turn on the camera headlamp set to a low intensity.
I saved them as Scene files so you will have to load them before anything else is to be added. This is so that background image, render settings and camera all load together...so remember to save-as a different file name when your scene is complete ;-)
