2016-01-27 – Updated to version 4.2.1
Simpler than before. The scene file name is gone. Now, all you have to do is to specify the image file name that you want and then click the “Render” button.
New look is cleaner and makes the Reality window easier to read.
Startup scene for DAZ Studio. Load the scene, add your character, select the camera, render. Excellent lighting without effort.
Added preset for Poser’s Pauline.
No math for you! The “Color Math” texture is now called “Texture Combine.” A more descriptive name can help.
Simpler glass. What was named “Transmission” now is “Tint.” Again, a more descriptive name helps in knowing what the property does. Reality is all about being artist-friendly.
Metal improvements. The default Metal conversion renders more realistically than before and it automatically enables the “Custom Metal” option if the host’s material had an image map in it.
Copy/Paste commands added to the right-click menu, as they were in Reality 2.x.
Added the ability to use an Automatic Preset just to change the material type.
Added option to use TIFF files for IBL.
Important bug fixes:
Camera synchronization between DAZ Studio and Reality is now fixed.
Camera issues when loading a DAZ Studio scene have been resolved.
Error message about “no light source” when loading a scene saved with Reality 4.0 has been resolved.
Improved reliability of the light editor.
Fixed bug that prevented using bump maps with the Water material
Posing controls from Poser 11 would appear in Reality. Fixed.
Many other fixes.
Updated to version 4.1.1:
Texture tearing, which could happen with accelerated modes, has been resolved
For the Poser edition we have added support for OS X 10.11 “El Capitan”
Anti-aliasing for the “Extra Boost” option has been improved
The Windows self-extracting distribution files now have a graphic UI and they ask for a destination folder for the expansion of the archive
