About Bryce Basics

Bryce Basics has been set up as a resource for those of you out there who are beginners with Bryce from DAZ3D, and perhaps have no prior experience in using a 3d application.

You'll find tutorials on many of the basics such as getting around the user interface, how to move the camera, create objects, adjust sky settings, so that you can make simple scenes. Once you have gotten used to how Bryce works you can start exploring the more advanced options such as making materials in the materials labs, importing your own models, or making and saving your own skies. If there is a demand, and time allowing I will look to do some tutorials on these too.

The tutorials are listed below which you can also access via the page links on the right side of each page. I would strongly suggest working through tutorials 1- 4 first of all as these will help you make your first simple scenes with Bryce, but of course feel free to dip in anywhere and browse as you wish and need:

  1. The interface
  2. Camera and render controls overview
  3. The create palette - part 1
  4. The create palette - part 2
  5. Saving your scenes
  6. The Edit palette
  7. What is rendering?
  8. The Sky and Fog palette - part 1
  9. The Sky and Fog palette - part 2 
          Using Daz Studio with Bryce
          More advanced Bryce controls and features

The tutorials were made using Bryce 6.3 and Windows XP (the tutorials will be useful for older versions of Bryce too). You can get Bryce 5.5 free from download.cnet.com, but do bear in mind that older versions can be less stable. Remember your computer safety whenever downloading any programs from the internet - virus scan your downloads and then scan the programs once they have been installed on your computer before you run it

It can always be daunting to use a new application, and I hope you will find some of these tutorials helpful. Bryce is a great application and, in my opinion, much easier to start using than some of the more complicated 3d applications out there. If you want a software where you can import models , for example from Daz Studio , create scenes and render to create your own artwork designs, and even models, then then you may find this application is what you are looking for. I hope you have as much fun with it as I do:)

Please do leave some constructive feedback by clicking on 'comments' at the end of the tutorials as this will help the tutorials, and the site , to improve. Thank you:)
