Hey guys!  This is to let you know that LuxRenderDS by tofusan has been updated, and there are a couple other things you might want to download, such as the new IBL light  pack and a portrait light pack.  As far as I know, the most recent updates since is the ability to re-size the sun.  Here's some info stated at the site at the bottom as well...

Sep 3, 2011 - Version
    Fixed: It can be specify multiple output image format in Render tab.
    Added: New option into Render tab: PreMultiply Alpha.

Sep 5, 2011 - Version
    Added: Light power (Watts) on Area Light.
    Added: Luminous efficacy (lm/W) on Area Light.

When I clicked on the link to page, this is what is translated when using Google Translate (remember it's not clearly English)

No. 12 is a raging typhoon. This typhoon has caused so as floods in various parts, careful not please everyone somehow.

Was released LuxRenderDS Version This fix has to be able to change the relative size of the sun, adding to the Render tab PreMultiply Alpha option is to have the ability to specify output multiple image formats with it. Also includes other minor bug fixes, etc..

Then, the assortment has been updated for the preset IBL LuxRenderDS. Making available for download on this page. This preset automatically sets the sun, so the preview, a little easier to build a scene with IBL.

This preset DSA script in text format so you can easily fix, such as Notepad. Please use IBL to create a preset time, such as yourself. ('∀ `*)

There is no set page for as of yet, but when and if I see it, I will post it here as well.

So go download the latest and the new goodies Tofu-ala-mode (AKA tofusan) has been very generous in giving us!… don't forget to go to his page on DA and thank him! :)

Thanks tofusan!

Greetings & Rules

Greetings, fellow members and friends, and welcome to LuxRenderDS, the group for images made in Daz Studio 3, converted to Lux by "LuxRenderDS", and rendered in Lux!

We hope you will enjoy browsing here as well as use the free converter and free Lux program (links below) and start submitting and help make this group a fun place to be!


Here is the link to the current version of LuxRenderDS (… (scroll down to the bottom to get to the download link of the file, click on the "Skydrive" folder).

Here is the link to the Lux render engine itself,… (current version 0.8, click on the OS version you need, please read the info there as it tells you what file you need for your specific computer. Ignore the "Install a plugin" part, as you already have the free version, the Daz Studio link has a link to Reality which you pay money for).

Below are the basic rundowns on submitting!


Cliff's Notes Version
- This group is dedicated to a plugin called LuxRenderDS.
- In order to become members, you must have at least 1 exceptional quality image created by using the free converter, LuxRenderDS, and that it is stated in the artist's comment.
- Please submit exceptional quality images only created by using LuxRenderDS/Lux, and please state so in your artist's comment. We do not accept Reality/Lux renders.
- Try to submit images to appropriate gallery folders.
- Don't take critiques on your art personally, but take them as a learning advantage.
- Conversely, don't make a critique on someone's art in personal preference, but only on technical view that will help them.
- There are no folders that either prohibit or encourage artistic nudity. If it fits, it fits.
- If you manage to get nudity into the Still Life folder I will crack up laughing.


A brilliant developer known as tofusan (Tofu-ala-mode) has taken the time and effort to create a free plugin for DAZ|Studio 3. This plugin exports scenes to LuxRender, a free unbiased render engine. This group is about that plugin, and images created with it. In general, if you didn't use LuxRenderDS, don't submit the image. There are certain exceptions, however. In the Tips and Tricks and the Work in Progress folders, it is perfectly reasonable to post screenshots of DAZ|Studio, or texture work for a project which will eventually be exported, or light settings for Lux itself, or other things which aren't actually rendered in Lux yet. As long as they're still related to the plugin, everything's good.

If you have some time, go and thank Tofu-ala-mode for his kindness!


The names should be pretty self-explanatory. If another folder is needed, throw something at me. If you're looking for critique on an image you're still working on, submit to the Work in Progress folder. If you're looking for critique on something that's finished, and you just want tips you can use on other renders, submit to one of the other folders.


If you're afraid of finding out how people react to your work, there's no point in submitting it. This group is not about critique, but it is certainly encouraged rather than discouraged. Specific comments on images can be very helpful, even if it's something as simple as "The way her hair flows is very dynamic," or "The eyes would look more lifelike if you used raytraced reflections."

Artistic Nudity

Honestly, I see no point in keeping this segregated into separate folders. There's already an option for people to turn off their ability to see nude images. If you render an image of thirty-five all-powerful space marines gunning down endless hordes of xenomorphs, and there happens to be a half-dressed civilian in the background, should it really go into some vaguely named "Female Nudity" folder rather than "Sci-Fi"? I think not.

I have the last version of DazStudio, it's and it failed to load

Library could not be loaded. File is not a valid DAZ Studio plug-in, or was made for a different version of DAZ Studio.

What can i do?

Does it work with DS4?
jamminwolfie Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Unfortunately it doesn't. No one's heard from the creator for a pretty long time, I think he gave up. A major unfortunate for this group.

What plugin are you talking about? If you're talking about LuxRenderDS and Lux, look in the "Greetings & Rules" under "Links".
