If you're lacking any of the pieces in this package I'd make an account and grab these, torrents only cover about a third of the content in this. It's about 530Mb and the offer will probably disappear in a day or so.

No, you don't. Figures and hair are standardized to pointing to complete .obj files. Props can go either way but developers are STRONGLY encouraged not to leave the geometry in the .pp2 files and do like the figures and hair.

DS versions of course don't follow this because the all holy DSON format (DAZ Studio JSON) is where everything goes

Until the Genesis models, every Victoria and every character shipping with Poser 1-4 was sculpted by the same man, Chris Creek. I was told this by Dan Farr in person and I had to ask twice because I didn't believe it.

I get the feeling either Chris has never drawn women from life models, or he's another closeted Mormon who has a thing for trannies.

This is Dawn, the first figure he made for sale after leaving DAZ3D. Need I say more?

It never works there's some subtle curvature that is difficult to detect in front and side perspectives.

I tried making a few jaws based on tracing over photos of Japanese idols since they often have quite wide jaw lines but are still considered feminine looking. It didn't prove to be very usefull as the main issue was trying to determine the angles which the cheeks turn into the jawline and neck

Any tips for learning about female jaw anatomy? Whenever I try to study jaw anatomy for 3d I run into the issue of everything being based around male skulls. Then the of the tiny subset of information you can find on female jaws is usually from a medical perspective so they aren't concerned with aesthetics of the jaws they show.

It's the same with buying any 3d face scans, not many women to pick from and they are only average looking. If you're making a 3d characters you don't really want them to be less attractive than most photography models.

Pick an actress at random and hunt down every photo reference you can find of her. Watch her movies in VLC where it can export snapshots.

This is solid advice and exactly how it's done. The problem is that a prerequisite for following this advice is that you need to posses sculpting/drawing type skills to a high degree.
And if you had those skills nobody would have had to point out that you needed to look at the shape you wanted to replicate, because that would be completely fucking obvious to you.

People who ask this type of question invariably is looking for the simple way to make stuff without first having to learn anything.
To recap this was covered well by Archimedes of Syracuse who once commented on 3D meshes by famously stating "There is no royal road to geometry."

It seem's a little wasteful to me, people model decent looking eyes, noses and mouths without having high level scuplting or 2d drawing skills. The difference is there's many resources for the anatomy and topo of those areas. While jaws are treated as mysterious objects no one ever tries to explain or study.

Being able to sculpt a really good jaw isn't always going to be enough either, if I don't really know why it looks good it's difficult to retopo and animate.

I want to learn which jaw and cheek angles and curves influence human perception of a jaw being masculine or femine.

The corollary to that is that the more visible the mandible is because of sunken cheeks/heavily prominent cheekbones, the more attention the face is drawn to the shape of the jawbone. The softer the face is, the less attention is paid to this.

Seriously this stuff doesn't need to be taught, it just needs to be thought about when sculpting/drawing.

Here's Anna Paquin's head geometry before and after with the jawline rounded and the cheekbone-to-cheek contour smoothed out.

It's funny everyone complaining about the old Victoria figure having too masculine a face when studies have shown men are more attracted to women who have faces that are what would be considered more masculine than what we consider feminine and that most supermodels and actresses actually have faces with more masculine features (particularly jaw) than the general population.

Men are also more likely to marry a woman with more masculine features.

It was less "lol manface" than the combination of features that didn't belong together and Zygote/DAZ's routine habit of marketing pictures of her that were heavily dial morphed compensating against all of that.

V4's default face is a smooth mannequin's which is an ideal canvas to build characters from. It says something that one of the more necessary products for the Genesis 2 Female is the Victoria 4 compatibility pack – which DAZ didn't even make, they just sell it.

>Die Tryings morph bundle is a must have for Genesis 1 and 2 figures. It's the only way to make Genesis 2 even slightly useful out of the box.

Riddle me this, if Genesis figures have geografting why was it necessary to make gender specific meshes for G2?
>>
>>479738

So content providers could sell two sets of the same clothing and morphs. Plus the Genesis 1 figure was given way too much flexibility right out of the box with all sorts of body types and genders being able to be dialed in and a kid morph too.

Genesis 2 is almost useless unless you buy all those morphs all over again.

It also makes it slightly easier to design female clothing which is the biggest seller. Nothing that couldn't have been fixed by getting Sickle Yield's Rigging System.
>>
>>479738
It's even worse than that. The genesis 2 figures are the exact same mesh just one has only female morphs and one has only male. There are no genitals on either figure. You have to geography them like you did with the Genesis 1 figures.
>>
>>480069
>The genesis 2 figures are the exact same mesh just one has only female morphs and one has only male.

So I could create a head morph for one and it's still applicable to both, or are the body parts subdivided differently and I have to do FBMs just to make a nose bigger?

> There are no genitals on either figure

fucking mormons
>>
>>480231
No because while it is the same mesh there is no androgynous inbetween like there is on the Genesis 1 figure.

You could make a morph on the female mesh and transfer it to the male mesh, but it will transfer tits and all.

Also the geographed genitals for the Genesis figures will not work on any of the teen or child morphs, so if you try to dial in a little bit of a teen body on your figure you can kiss your dick cunt goodbye.
>>

>I wish there was a better selection of normal clothes

One of my biggest peeves with Poser and DS is that the default accessory content has gotten progressively less real-world for years, and the community of girls and neckbeards feed it.

The idea was that Poser could be used for creating practical instructional materials and to this day the faggot at NCR who makes animations for their self-checkout POS systems still uses the exact same P4 Casual Woman with the untextured clothing, skin and ponytail hairdo for every one of them.

DAZ3D had the opportunity to supply with new characters a default practical clothing pack and they have consistently muffed it because they have always treated the Poser market like animals to be milked and slaughtered, with no further interest beyond playing Barbie or making porn.

The new Israeli management that ousted the founders have no intention of altering that business model because it's catering to a wider group than departmental graphic artists.

Zygote, DAZ's origin company, was a general purpose mesh house trying to compete with TurboSquid. They split off DAZ as a Poser content-specific vendor, but the founders were both from the medical illustration wing and the content the first few years shows it.

Clothing is not fun to model and it was a bitch to properly UV unwrap in the early 2000s. It's still astonishing that it took Marvelous Designer to turn the paradigm on its head.

The community is fucked, when I do find a plain jeans or a T shirt the textures are mspaint level.

Go to >>481780 for better info on modeling clothes.

As I said, DAZ is not motivated to produce a standard set of real-world contemporary clothing for their characters, and frequently the vendors on DAZ, Renderosity, RDNA and others who do make clothing items do such an average job of texturing them that a handful of texture art vendors sell better texture sets for them (more realistic fabric textures / more plausible color schemes).

You'd think by now that the modelers would team up with those texture artists the way Tempesta3D is a team of modelers and texture artists.

But in general I agree that the most prolific clothing modelers are hyperfocused on slutwear, bimbo officewear, and lapels-and-winge-everywhere South Beach high couture. I think I've seen maybe two sets of actual hospital scrubs compared to the tons of naughty nurse costumes out there. Bimbo officewear annoys me the most because it's at least two-thirds of the office outfits, and irritatingly a lot of it is made by women who'd rather rake in the cash than risk making practical outfits.

The other issue is that rigging clothing with functioning fasteners is complicated work. The button has to be mounted to the (left) panel's placket but open/close morphs have to graph it sliding through the (right) panel's buttonholes while at the same time the panels balloon open naturally. I don't think the tutorial on making zippers covers rigging them to gradually lock/unlock the teeth as the slider moves up and down.

I also don't think any of those tutorials weight-map clothing, which is a pity. The potential is useful for more than just cheesecake (pic related).

Likewise, you're going to be hurting to find hair models that match half the women in your uni classes. The only reason we're not still using those plastic helmets that came with Poser 4 is because a Japanese Poser user named Kozaburo realized that the alpha map support Poser introduced to make keyhole sweaters possible (without cutting geometry) could also be applied to hair props made out of curved planes (and the vast majority of his work was freebies). Even DAZ didn't figure that out themselves. Poser now bundles a chunk of his hair props, but they're custom fit to the P6 characters. it's not much work to resize them for other figures but they were originally made for Posette and V1.

Interestingly while clothing's secondary texture market is useful (if not necessary), the secondary hair texture market is almost entirely shitty anime/punk colors because hair modelers already know and respect what a plausible palette is. I have almost never seen a hair color addon that was necessary to the original model. In the early days of DAZ selling transmapped hair, they tried to get away with only bundling limited color palettes and selling fuller ones as addons but users weren't amused.

Smith Micro: strenuously test software before release, ignore beta tester comments about bundled content ("Rex has four butts when his thighs bend enough"), glacial implementation of new features but dedicated to backwards and forwards compatibility for new figures

DAZ: strenuously test new figures, lazy beta testing of software, much faster implementation of useful new features but hasty choices about underlying libraries and engines that bite them in the ass, encourage splintering of product for maximized profits either to PAs or themselves

Both: good enough UIs, .obj-based/compatible meshes, script-based library items which permit users to hack new features into the application, bundled with content showing off new features, still pretend particles don't exist or would be useful, can be used with Reality middleware to Luxrender renderer

In the long run it's better for both companies to have competition but damn, it's a good thing Studio is freeware if they're making releases with basic UI stuff breaking. To give DAZ credit, they won't let a bug like this sit for a year without a patch.

>>483481
He peaked with Jean, the model looks correct from every angle. The Bruce Willis one has the same depth problem the rest of them do where from one angle it looks perfect but in rotation the face is too flat. It's like the facial sculpts engravers make for coins. Reno's works because his face doesn't have a complicated bone structure, just a beaky French nose. At the risk of insulting the artist, it almost seems like the guy is blind in one eye.

If Dan and Chris were still running the company there'd be hope but they were both ousted by the Israelis they sold a controlling share of the company to.

Dan doesn't even work in ANY capacity related to 3D any longer and that was his life's work. Chris is desperately hoping his tranny Dawn model will succeed V4 and no one's biting because 1. she's as hideous as V1 and V3 (both his work) and 2. no meaningful improvements based on new Poser features.

DAZ is aiming at a market that makes Poser users look hardcore in comparison and intentionally making as much splintering in content compatibility as they can get away with.

If you can fucking make all clothing fit all characters based on a figure, UV maps should follow suit, fullstop.

SM's run by monkeys but they are ridiculously dedicated to their userbase and backwards compatibility, perhaps because their product managers are now graduates of their userbase.
>>
>>484829

Daz Studio has also made their software compatible with Poser content and offered SM the resources to make Poser compatible with DS content but SM told them to go fuck themselves.

>>
>>484908
Well there are probably professional squabbles between companies we're unaware of. All of this being speculation based on our preference.

As a long time fan and customer of Poser I can see the advantages, and disadvantages of both. Poser remains loyal to it's customer base which is a huge relief, but the problem has been the dissatisfaction with their default models either not having enough versatility or not looking as good as the Victorias.

If Poser had a model as well detail sculpted as V7 for example I doubt Poser users would still be so desperate for one. DAZ's attention to models has always bridged the gap which I wish both sides would consider the pros, and cons of.
Their competition had yielded better results for all of us the users, until now.
>>
>>484952
Poser's owners fucked up royally when they turned to their own userbase to start making new models in P5. DAZ3D was formed by people serving the medical illustration community whose standards for (non-facial) anatomy are at the very least physically measurably accurate. V1-4 (which realistically constitute 3 meshes since V2 was a service release to V1) were progressively more modeled off of actual humans, in some cases from 3D laser scans. V4 was made in Modo which was at the time fairly high end.

When SM artist Teyon is consistently showing off Zbrush monsters in the forums instead of human sculpts, it doesn't fill me with confidence that SM is going to bite the bullet and pay someone expert outside their company to provide the next gen model.

The dissatisfaction also comes from a comparatively weak QC process; Rex had rigging problems that were reported during beta and STILL shipped. Roxie's eyelashes were an optional smart prop until the user base made it clear they refused to use a figure this retardedly rigged.

I get that SM's trying to protect their bottom line but they have no choice except to pay for a pro job on the next figures they bundle – and expecting people to buy Miki instead was suicidally dumb.

>>484952
>If Poser had a model as well detail sculpted as V7 for example I doubt Poser users would still be so desperate for one.

This, precisely. V7 doesn't even look that substantially better than her predecessors in the expressions department. We don't want a DSON python script slowing down performance and limiting the number of characters, we want an outright conversion to native (which someone on one of the forums claims he's making a tutorial for). I'd rather lose some features / have them replaced by Poser-native versions than be stuck with V4's 2006-era rigging forever.
>>
>>484908
>Daz Studio has also made their software compatible with Poser content and offered SM the resources to make Poser compatible with DS content but SM told them to go fuck themselves.

DS reverse engineered Poser's formats and engine and put it in a piece of freeware, without licensing anything from Poser's owners. At the same time, DAZ went public that they'd enforce DMCA on reverse engineering DS's formats.

It's disingenuous to think that DAZ was offering SM their formats for free and Poser's owners have been smarter about not licensing something they could lose access to in the future.

Even if it had been offered for free with no strings attached, it would have made a relationship between DAZ and SM where SM was constantly having to keep up with support for someone else's engine and in effect forcing Poser to use DS's to the point that people would rationally ask why pay for Poser or produce Poser-native content if the two are the same thing? OS/2's dedication to Windows compatibility killed it because it provided no incentive to develop for OS/2.

I don't doubt that stubbornness and bitterness were involved here, but supporting DSON in the long run isn't as good for Poser as supporting Poser formats is for DS.

> standard file formats will make everything better

In 3D modeling, absolutely. In this type of application, the opposite is true. Most of the innovations in Poser came from users reverse engineering poserscript and hacking new features into it. A straight data format would have kept this from ever happening. Most library items are just wrapper scripts delivering data payloads using the same syntax to do so and the file extension is the biggest difference between most.
>>
>>484976
>At the same time, DAZ went public that they'd enforce DMCA on reverse engineering DS's formats.

Too bad for them patent law means their DMCA is not applicable. Reverse engineering falls under patent law, not Copyright. They can DMCA till the cows come home and it has no legal standing because it's not even covering the same intellectual property law.
>>
The only thing Poser has over Daz Studio is dynamic cloth. And the only reason Daz Studio doesn't have user editable dynamic cloth is because they signed a contract with Optitex granting Optitex exclusive rights to dynamic cloth support for Daz Studio and then Optitex said "Well thanks for signing this contract meaning you can't compete with us. Too bad for you the contract doesn't actually bind us into supporting your product. Enjoy your nothing, losers".

They told Daz they'd make a dynamic cloth system for Studio available to the users but nothing in the contract actually said they had to. So Daz won't be able to come out with their own dynamic cloth system until 2018 when the contract with Optitex expires.

If only someone were to do real 3d scans, including scans of bending parts - gluts, knees, elbow, shoulder, collar bone, neck, feet, and waist with twist that would be more than perfect.
Imagine not only body scans but accurate indention's where bikini straps press into muscle, and fat density.

I can only dream of the perfect model.
>>
>>485064
>Imagine not only body scans but accurate indention's where bikini straps press

I think that part's already been done, it just requires weight mapping and clothing run through dynamic clothiifying. The issue is volumetric compression where surrounding tissue bulges, which current cloth simulators don't bother with because body meshes aren't solid modeling.

>>485064
>scans of bending parts - gluts, knees, elbow, shoulder, collar bone, neck, feet, and waist with twist that would be more than perfect

You're not dreaming but you are asking for a model that has muscles and fat as well as bones, and an engine that won't choke on recalculating this. Right now the paradigm is "number crunch this in a fast computer and convert it to joint controlled morph targets for plebputers."

Also, Project Erogenesis.
>>
>>485056
The thing that fucked them on DMCA is leaving .daz format behind for DSON. DMCA's protection against reverse engineering file formats obligates the vendor to not produce an open format and DSON is completely open, being a dialect of JSON. It has no secrets as a file format to protect.

>>485057
>The only thing Poser has over Daz Studio is dynamic cloth

Let's turn this around. The only thing DS has over Poser is a better renderer and P11's getting a new renderer.

Poser's external scripting is Python, a matured runtime embedded in many software products and constantly improved upon.

DS's scripting is done in JavaScript, mainly because Trolltech offered it as a Qt-bound module. And then soon afterward Trolltech said, "this is shit and we're killing it," leaving DAZ to have to maintain the module on their own for the foreseeable future. They don't even have the brains to license and embed node.js instead.

DAZ got the shinier renderer and reinvented how conforming clothing works so that every piece of clothing fits every deformed version of a given character. To be honest, it's a good idea. Geografting is great if you're that guy who wants to turn the Genesis male into a minotaur and useless to the rest of us. Switchable UV maps has caused more trouble than it saved.

Ironically the supposedly better rigging system is immaterial because no one has an incentive to develop figures for it. only characters for the latest flavor of Genesis. Dawn is the only fig I can think of that was rigged specifically for DS, but that was because Hiveworks believed DAZ was going to use her as the Generation 5 female. When that didn't materialize and he quit DAZ, he rerigged her for Poser and sold both versions.

When someone writes a script to convert Genesis figures into Poser figures, wait for the tantrum from DAZ about this somehow violates their terms of use. That will tell you more about which company to back than anything else.
>>
Here's my internet prayer to Poser.

Oh Heavenly Poser, please bring us a model comparable to DAZ's V7 so that we may not have to completely abandon both Poser, and DAZ on to other 3d platforms less accessible to most 3d hobbyists.
May such a model have higher default meshing where it counts allowing maximum versatility, and customization.
Let us have it expertly made as humanly as possible leaving even professionals in the movie industry asking:“ Where did that model come from, it looks so amazingly accurate in every way? Such detail, and scope of the model leaves no need for any other.” so that no one is left feeling short changed.

Amen
>>
>>485561
SM's working on something for Poser 11 but I wouldn't hold my breath given their track record and habit of drafting Renderosity faggots to do the modeling.

Pray that Project Erogenesis gets finished this year because it's pretty much what you and I are begging for (once the faces are dialed less caricatured). PE is high poly, has complex rigging and weight mapping, and looks fantastic.

Octane was free2play for Poser users for 90 days in April. It's not that no one bothered, it's that the system requirements are heftier than average unless you want to spend several days rendering a scene.
In contrast Reality costs $30, middles both Poser and DS, and connects to an open source renderer app that can run across networks.

Not dissing Octane in the least or saying Luxrender is comparable, but Luxrender is *attainable*.

>there's some sort of seam that pops up below the collar bones

I don't see any geometry or texture seams (and V4 doesn't have any seams in that area), so if you're referring to those hard curves at the tops of the breasts, that comes from fucking with the dials too much. Post your dial settings.

BreastUp BreastDown BreastIn BreastOut BreastsHangForward BreastsFlatten and the Diameter/Cleavage dials are strictly for gravity/clothing simulation. Don't use them to shape boobs.

For shaping, start with BreastsSize BreastLarge BreastsImplant BreastsNatural BreastsDroop and BreastsPerk, then move on to learning magnets because you'll get better control and can apply them to clothing.

In theory you could paint out those bulges with the Morph tool (assuming you're using Poser 9 or later) but be warned that this won't work on joint zones (the areas have joint-controlled morphs with hidden magnet zones that override the Morph brushes).

At one end you have confused blankface like this, at the other some ghastly expression that dialed things too far, and the key is figuring out a subtle middle ground. Only gripe about the pose is the left foot floating off the floor for a figure this Amazonian.

The purple contacts/irises need to go. Even if the artist is trying to do something like convey mind control or mystical/alien species, this could be done much better. Clothing is conforming well and the boobs are doing a good job of acting like the clothing is holding them in tightly. The hair is in need or gravity adjustments and is visibly clipping the boob while floating over the shoulder. Highlights are virtually nonexistent which is very unusual considering how many hair vendors bake speculars into the textures.

If you're the artist, you inadvertently made a pretty good start at the Statue of Liberty's face here so save that. Which fig did you use?

How does one get started with breast morphs?
I see some artists like 3dxart who have giant breasts on their characters yet they seem to deform against clothes or other body parts.
How is this done?
>>
>>491631
>3dxart
He's using clothing custom made to those sizes; note the absence of any stretching on detail like stitches here.

How do YOU get clothing to conform to unusual morphs? Assuming you're using Poser, the clothing probably already has the same morphs as the figure. If it doesn't and you're using Pro, there's a menu option to copy morphs from the figure to the clothes. If you don't have Pro, go to Scripts --> "Wardrobe Wizard Menu" and follow the instructions.

Alternately, learn to use magnets; it's not as fast but it does work on nice spherical zones like breasts and it's where most breast morphs can be done.

> I'm using DS

I don't use DS but it's my understanding that conforming clothes for it are designed to automatically match the figure's proportions and morphs.

Now post stuff.
>>
>>491712
>>491631
alternately, you could learn to modify objs in Zbrush, which is wut I've been doing for about a year now.

Its much easier then magnets, and works about the same way. Just export or find the obj for the cloth/prop you're using, export the body into an obj, load both in zbrush, and then brush to fit.

Word of warning tho, breasts that large are a BITCH to get right.

Pretend for a moment that you're a content developer. You don't work for DAZ, Smith Micro, Renderosity or RuntimeDNA but you broker content through them.

Content development is time consuming work. It's not as simple as "model thing in Blender, export OBJ and paint it in ZBrush." Most of it is accessory content which means it has to be exhaustively tested on how it works with the figures it's designed for. The textures have to be good enough to render on higher end PBRs now that those are becoming the standard. You *will* end up learning how things like clothing work in your chosen platform. If you think these items are shat out over a weekend you're mistaken.

OK, so you've made your product, tested it yourself and packaged up the files for an installer or similar. Assuming your content portal chooses to work with you as a vendor, they are going to take no less than 40% of the asking price for the product.

If you're good enough and they accept the product without revisions the first time, it goes on sale and the relatively niche consumer base purchases it and reviews it and 30 days later the checks come in.

If the product's really good, you make a lot of sales. Unfortunately if it's really good, that also means inside 90 days it'll be on file sharing sites and/or P2P networks, and there is no meaningful DRM for either Poser or DS.

So, what could take you six weeks to develop and get processed for sale will net you at best the same number of weeks of purchases before sales drastically drop. If you don't already have successive products in the pipeline for sale, you are engaging in an expensive hobby.

>Just looking at some basic morphs and clothes for G2F is 80~ burger bucks

Go to Turbosquid and look at their prices.
>>
>>492696
What do the people who buy these products even d with them? I always assumed it was an expensive hobby and the renders go straight to deviantArt.

>What do the people who buy these products even d with them? I always assumed it was an expensive hobby and the renders go straight to deviantArt.

I've seen Poser traces in comic books made by Marvel, DC, and Avatar Press. Prior to that more honest comic artists painted over renders (the original intent of the application). RWBY is entirely produced and animated in Poser Pro. The animated human in every self-check kiosk made by NCR is the Poser 4 woman. Instructional training materials where human casts are expensive or technically not feasible use these models. 3D paysite porn offers depictions of things which are illegal, immoral, and/or physically impossible.

The alternative is to hire professionals to create bespoke single-use animations, which is outside most peoples' budgets.

Yes, you're going to see a lot of shit on dA because dA is a magnet for content with minimum effort applied, and cringe on YT because OC on YT is an argument that Sturgeon's Law was optimistic. Like any other tool, you only get what you put into it.

3D software companies don't pay the RIAA and MPAA to troll torrent sites and report users. And you're fairly protected if you use a private tracker like CGPeers.

But for the most part, the best way is to use DDL websites. Get a real-debrid or zevera account and get max speed direct downloads for anything really. More stuff than there is torrents for, and it's completely anonymous.
>>
>>500524
DDL does seem to be the best option, although I am having trouble finding sites thats not associated with that one gook and thats not skyback. Also would you happen to know how large the CGpeers sortiment is?
>>
>>500525
CGPersia is where you'll find the most CG related DDL links.
CGPeers has the largest assortment of CG related torrents of any site. Most of the pirated content actually originates from CGPersia/Peers these days. Group buys are regularly organized there too.

Mm, yeah thats a lot of stuff. Doesent seem to have much Poser/DAZ3D stuff though, would you happen to know any good sites for that?

Probably because those programs are hated by most actual 3D artists. If it's not on CGPerisa, it's very unlikely it will be anywhere else.

I know they can't, I was just making a point.
Also, Daz is trash software created by trash people, so of course they would file takedowns. They know their userbase is generally trash as well, from third-world countries where they'd never buy Daz unless they absolutely had to.

There's no catch... People pay the website, and the website buys premium to a bunch of DDL hosts. Then everyone is basically sharing those accounts, using the website to route the traffic through, making it look like one user on the accounts. It's wonderful.

>>500628
>You can't have it.
Uhm, it's a fucking pre-made model, anybody can have it. That's why DAZ is shit. You're not an artist if you use it, everything's already done for you, you learn nothing, and you can't create anything truly interesting or unique. And isn't it funny how every DAZ and Poser model is instantly identifiable? Even despite them using Iray now? It's a testament to just how little creativity is involved.

Also, Iray is in many other softwares.
>>
>>500668
That was more about teasing a Poser fan. Both are intended for people not interested in constructing an entire model on their own.
DAZ 3d has benefited from having identifiable models, while Poser is more about creative freedom.
>>
>>500688
>That was more about teasing a Poser fan
I was the person you were replying to, and you assumed I liked Poser just because I said Daz was trash, lmao.

Both Poser and Daz's models are identifiable.

>Both are intended for people not interested in constructing an entire model on their own.
i.e: People who want to be praised for making 3D art by the average person who doesn't understand how little work went into your image compared to the other uniquely modeled humanoids they come across. People generally "like" 3D art because they think to themselves "wow, that's amazing, it looks so real, there's no way I could do that!". But when it comes to Poser/Daz art, that's actually untrue, but they don't know that, and if they did, they wouldn't be impressed by your image anymore.
>>
>>500689
>But when it comes to Poser/Daz art, that's actually untrue, but they don't know that, and if they did, they wouldn't be impressed by your image anymore.

With every program it is up to the person using it as to how unique the images are. Some people just plop whatever comes with it while others get into using it as a basis to create artworks with other platforms that produce amazing results.

They are both engines for posing, animating and rendering figures to which a user can either apply a character preset or develop one themselves.

Neither do you. .cr2 export won't convert the expressions or the d-q skinning and you'll be left with something only half functional.

Protip: you can't. If you can, show the audience your work.
>>
>>500688

I use DAZ studio with models I create myself. It's a rendering program. Not a modelling program.

I use 3DCoat for my modelling and Daz Studio for my animating and rendering.

People bitching about Daz Studio not being a modelling program are like people bitching about Microsoft Word not being a MIDI sequencing program.

That's not what the program does. It either renders models you make in another program or models you buy that someone else made in another program. I seriously don't get the Daz hate. Ninety percent of the people on this board keep whining about how they can't find jobs in the 3D industry and here you've got a platform with millions of users, most of which don't model. If you're even a halfway decent modeller you can make a living doing nothing but making content for Daz/Poser.

But instead people bitch about some fucking imagined integrity and because neither package is a modeller. If I was unemployed you can bet I would be taking advantage of Daz/Poser's huge user base and making content for them instead of bitching because most of the users buy their models instead of making them.
>>
>>501001
>Not a modelling program.
>I seriously don't get the Daz hate.

That is what was stated. With literally anything someone attempts to make themselves feel superior by insulting others with no proof of their own skill level. Those with the know how wouldn't bother.
Both DAZ, and especially Poser work as great systems to work with prepared scenes. Same as a theatrical performance where the stage easy to set up quickly. Poser began as an inexpensive way to bring 3d to inexperienced users, but it has grown into something useful for easy set up of pre-made props, and scenes for testing, or other professional applications.
>>
>>501001
Daz is not a rendering program, lmao. Mentalray, Vray, LuxRender, Indigo, Renderman, etc... are rendering programs. That's like saying Marvelous Designer is a rendering program just because you happen to be able to render the models alongside all the other features it has... Fucking idiotic. Daz isn't a rendering program, why the hell do you think they added IRAY to it recently? Because they know their program doesn't render well. Iray is not made by Daz, it's made by Nvidia and is available for most other 3D modeling packages, like Max, Maya, Rhino, Revit, C4D and a few others. So if you're going through the hell of using Daz just to render your own models, then you're being a fucking dumbass.
>>
>>501101
>Daz is not a rendering program

The end goal of DS and Poser is to produce renders. Therefore, whether or not their own devs wrote the algorithms behind the rendering cores (which many applications do not), they are de facto rendering applications.

>>501101
>So if you're going through the hell of using Daz just to render your own models, then you're being a fucking dumbass.

Not if you're making/rigging models for DS/Poser for the purpose of selling to/sharing with other DS/Poser users.

> BUT MY PROGRAM IS OBJECTIVELY BETTER

>>>/v/
>>
>>501164
>The end goal of DS and Poser is to produce renders.
No, the end-goal is to create quickly made compositions featuring human characters. Rendering is simply a necessity of that process, but is not Daz's primary focus, thus the need for the upgrade to Iray so they can at least have less shit looking images.

>Not if you're making/rigging models for DS/Poser for the purpose of selling to/sharing with other DS/Poser users.
Are you blind? Did you not see the part where I said "just to render your own models"? Are you 14 or something? Because your reading comprehension seems very basic.

If you're making and rigging models for Daz/Poser to sell or share, that's a whole different story. If you're doing it to sell the models, then good for you, you're soaking up money from a bunch of suckers, just like getting commission from furries. And if you're doing it just to share models with others, well, that's a sad and unfortunate life you're living.

>No, the end-goal is to create quickly made compositions featuring human characters. Rendering is simply a necessity of that process, but is not Daz's primary focus, thus the need for the upgrade to Iray so they can at least have less shit looking images.

Preview images aren't what people upload to galleries so no, you're incorrect here. Since Poser in the late 1990s, people have relied on slower, more precise rendering engines to make what they plan to show the world.

You don't fucking model the inner-ear shapes for a low-poly head, because they don't affect the silhouette and would greatly increase polycount. Normal map bake is fine, or displacement if you're doing real-time tessellation.

Yeah, what else should it be, a mishmash of vegetables?

You are grasping straws, and its hilarious.
Show your superior modelling skills or be considered a complete failure.

So that is who you assume is interested in accurate human representation of intricate detail?

Perhaps you should consider how fucking small minded you are.

You gotta admit that anyone so deep into mutilating girls that they need a fucking Scanning-Force Microscope has to be a grand old gorefreak.

Not really. Some of us admire every part of a woman, and in no way enjoy harming women.

The transition from helix to lobule resembles a cartoon drawing of an ear. Draw the helix in for a more graceful curve.

The face itself is unintentionally androgynous;
the chin is more pronounced than it would normally be on a female and is disproportionate to the jawline which would be consistent with a more delicate chin. The mandible doesn't grow thick in one part without going thick in the rest.

The philtrum is unnecessarily pronounced; with a columella that close to the upper lip, the philtrum is going to be softer (as is the upper lip's definition).

The brow ridge is rarely this prominent and I doubt you're aiming to make eyebrows pop out in profile here.

> but this is low poly
Doesn't excuse exaggeration in a sculpt unless you're unambiguously being stylistic.

Overall good, without seeing a full front.
