Unlike other texture sets, you get support for Poser, Daz Studio and Carrara, with unique extra shaders for Carrara.

Three new products for Carrara (and Daz Studio and Poser too) has just been released by DimensionTheory, as usual there is an intro price of 30% off, the HDR Pro Sets Urban Recreation is currently 50% off.
I’m happy to announce the release of my second HDR Prosets product, from my trip to Monterey California! This set is now available in the store, with presets supporting DAZ Studio, Poser and Carrara. Also, new to the series are my “Basesets” which I’ll be releasing with each new set. These contain just the HDRI files and background textures for use in most any program at a cheaper price, very useful if you don’t use the named programs or just want to make your own presets!

On another note, Carrara and Poser support has been rolled out for my previous set Urban Recreation! Those who purchased this set previously should be receiving the updated files, if not please reset your downloads and let me know if there’s issue. Newcomers will be able to grab the set at it’s original discounted price of 50% off for a limited time! Please enjoy these new presets and feel free to post your renders for me to see!
