I don't know how hdri work in Daz.
I remember I tried that once in Bryce using the SkyLab thing, and it gave environment around what I already did

Yes it is very good. Night scenes are not easy to do, mine normally tend to be too dark.
I've tried getting help with hdri before and have only been left frustrated. I know I have to go through surfaces, but beyond that, I can't find the sections they are talking about for those hdri images to put in. And that's not the only thing, I have all these presets, of which half are not working for me and I don't know why, most of them are lights. There are so many scripts out there that can do some great things and people are lost as to how to install them, especially when people do not do a proper folder structure. Enter me and my youtube channel to help with that. No one is going back to basics with all this new stuff and some people need that. Also as many of you have seen, a lot of people don't like change and these programs are constantly changing.I am going to have to do playlists for my channel since I will be showing more then just Daz, as well as a section specifically for animation. Another thing people need to do with their channels is playlists, so people can spend less time searching and more time learning.Sorry for the rant, this has been a touchy subject for me for a while, didn't mean to ramble.
If you do not have a plan for your life. Someone else will.
