Full DAZ Studio WorldBall now available free here at ShareCG - link in description above.
So I won't be updating this 'DAZ Studio 4 WorldBall Test Scenes [WIP Beta!]' after all.

Oh dear! Just realized that there are still essential files missing, even from the version 2 upload. Specifically, I missed the ShaderBuilder files for the global illumination IBL!
That's why Arnold7525's test renders had black primitives.
I may do a version 3 upload...

- In the preview pane the primitives will only be lit by the sun lamp (an infinite light at 30-50% intensity), so they will look very dark. That's because the all-around lighting (IBL) doesn't show up till you render. Render lighting should look like the promo images.
- The WorldBall sphere specifically uses 100% ambient (0% diffuse/specular) so scene lights won't affect the more …

I also noticed that the strength for their Ambient color is set to 100% under the Surface Tab. I read somewhere that within DS it's recommended to set this value to 0% to avoid that things glow in black in the scene. Unless this would more …

Thanks for the feedback - my apologies. I'm fairly sure this was my first attempt to package a DS4 .DUF file and its dependencies, and I obviously slipped up!

I've found the missing files, so I'll be uploading a 'Version 2' of the ZIP soon (they're just DS primitives and my own stuff, so I don't see any issues including them).

P.S. The .DSA script-based more …

Your content library is incomplete. I get this error warning loading a scene:
"Some assets needed to load the file were misssing. The contet may not work as expected. The following files could not be more …
