Glass Shader Presets for Daz Studio by MorganRLewis Glass Shader Presets for Daz Studio by MorganRLewis
A set of colored glass shader presets for DAZ|Studio. These can take a while to render, depending on object size and complexity, but can be worth it in some situations. 24 colors are included, hitting some of the basic colors and some common glass hues. Others can be created by dialing the diffuse setting, of course.

Because these are presets for the DS default shaders, they will work in any version of Daz Studio from 2 through 4 without modification.

Note that for these to look their best they need something to reflect and to be seen through the refraction. Also, the raytrace depth setting while rendering needs to be reasonably high (at least 4, I usually go for 6) or Weird Things will happen.

Addendum: You can set the index of refraction to different materials by using the Refract-O-Pack: morganrlewis.deviantart.com/ar…

You weren't kidding about the render times. This piece tramp-graphics.deviantart.com/… took over 60 hours to render, mainly because of the glass enclosure of the shower, and the water (both of which I used your shaders on). The wait was worth it though. I'm also using them on the lenses and bulbs of the headlight, taillight, and turn signal lights on a motorcycle model I made, and am trying to figure out how to make them really light up.

The reflections in the tiles would have had a significant impact on your render time as well.  All in all, it's pretty impressive that your computer was able to handle it all in one go, even if it did take 60 hours.

With the motorcycle lights, you might try putting a point light inside the light, with a reflective background and glass in front.  Alternately, there are some shaders in the UberLight package for DS that are designed for glowing surfaces.

Yeah. the point light (actually linear point lights) and a spot light (for the headlight) with the reflective surface and glass lenses were what I originally had, even for the bulbs themselves. I'm currently trying Uber Area light surfaces on the bulbs' surfaces to see if that helps.

As for the render of Tommie in the Shower, the Super Shine Shaders don't really have the long render time issues, probably because there's no transparency involved.

These Shaders are a Work of Art!
They are the best I found up to now: a clear, transparent, REAL glass!

With Max Raytrace Depth = 6, and four hours of rendering.

Thank you!

I see that a lot of persons downloaded these shaders, and that they liked them a lot, but I'm unable to find where I have to click for downloading!...

Could, please, somebody help me?

Thank you!

Using them is reasonably easy. Select the object in the scene tab. Then select the surfaces of the object in the surfaces tab. Double click on one of the presets, and it'll change. Enjoy!
