Summary: a beautiful product with a hefty memory footprint

Product: Chevalier Armor for G3M + Textures


1. Introduction

Thanks for reading this journal entry, the fourth DAZ3D product review I've posted to DA.
In the interest of saving precious reader time, by way of introduction I will simply state that this is an Iray-specific review.
I've posted an explanation of my tools and approach in the previous reviews, see Review: Deep Hairline for G3 (Score: 8/10) for more info.
From this point on in reviews, I will simply provide the basic starting scene info/raw numbers and then jump right into the product evaluation.

2. Starter Scene Stats                                                                        3. Product Scene Stats

Chevalier Review Starter Scene 7sec 700MB by armieri                        Chevalier Review Actual 70sec 2.4MB by armieri
Render time: 7 sec                                                                                   1 minutes, 17 seconds (+1 minute and 10 seconds)
Estimated total scene memory: approx 300MB                                               approx 2.4GB
                                                                                                             Estimated product memory: approx 2.1GB 

Compare to: Chevaleresse Armor for G3F at approx 1.7GB (19% smaller footprint, includes 2 swords)
Subdivisions provided: yes (not used, would increase memory)

4. Conclusions

    Iray Memory Score: 2/3

    At over 2GB for this single product, it's quite an investment to use this armor in a scene and still take advantage of your CUDA graphics card.

    Aesthetic Score: 2/2

    The cloth pieces have elegant folds, the metal pieces are rich in detail. Most angles look good.
    Individual items have fully modeled buckles and straps.

    Flexibility Score: 1/2

    Not many actor dials on CapeArmor component. Cape itself is bendable as 3 pieces.

    Materials Score: 2/2

    Excellent mapping of materials to surfaces. For instance, the armor rivets are separate from the main armor. 
    The additional armor texture maps provide finely detailed maps in multiple colors.

    Documentation: 0/1

    There is no provided download documentation that I can find.

Overall Score: 7/10
