Since the iray trial does not allow you to render. I am wondering how long it takes to render 1 frame in the iray plugin. This will vary widely by hardware and scene, but how does it compare to daz studio?

A "DAZ Iray render" and an "iClone Iray render" will have similar rendering times... provided the scenes are actually similar.

For me, I "budget" 2 minutes per image, ranging from 1 to 3 minutes pre frame.

It all depends on what quality you need, the specifics of the scene, and what "shortcuts" you might want to take.  For example, do you really need "caustics" turned on?


If the trial doesn't allow you to render at all (not even with a water mark?  That's lame), another option is the BUY the plug-in and TEST IT EXTENSIVELY FOR A WEEK.  Reallusion DOES HONOR their RETURN POLICY.  So you have a 14-day window in which to get a refund if it's not going to work for you.

To me, the plug-in was worthwhile as an "educational" learning opportunity in addition to whatever actual use I might get, even though rendering even a 10-minute video in Iray is something I will probably not do anytime in the next couple of years.

Hi, I don't use daz studio but with my machine (you see the spec in my profil) with the minimum parameters who are okay for me, and for the result who is okay for me (not for everybody) 15 s of animation takes 2H to 2H30

My computer : I7 24Go RAM GTX 1070ti 8Go and GTX 1050Ti4Go
