old thread >>530724>biased opinion on the best sites for quality purchased contentDaz3d.com, renderosity and renderoticaBase figure shapes and program available at daz3d.com for free.The shekeling comes from addon content. Clothes, characters, etc.>I dont want to pay for shitFreebies available at the official website but are usually meh content for older characters.Renderosity has a free section updated semi often.sharecg.com also has lots of content. ymmv>What is the difference between Genesis 1,2 and 3? Which one should you use?See pic related
>There are some simple rules you have to follow when using DaZ...>1. Create a camera, position it and use it as the view to render your scene from. The "Perspective View" doesn't allow you to turn off the "Headlamp" light in Render Settings that will show up in your renders and mess up your lighting layout.>2. Turn off the Headlamp in Render Settings in the Render tab. Set it to off or set it to only be on when there are no scene lights. Emissives do not count as scene lights.>3. In Iray the only lights worth a shit are spotlights and emissives. Don't bother with point lights or distant lights...those are only good for 3Delight.>4. You can adjust the shape and size of your spotlights to be things like rectangles, spheres, discs, etc..and either make them huge or small. When making a sphere spotlight you will have to crank up the Luminous Flux to ridiculous amounts for it to give off light (like 1 million or more)....because a sphere spotlight like an emmissive sphere gives off light in all directions and the Lumens give the total amount of light which is why a Point shaped Spotlight with a million Lumen will be very bright but a sphere will not. To get a large diffuse light you'd do something like make a spotlight, set it to rectangle, increase it's size to like 100x100 or more and then increase the spread angle to max. The larger you make it and the wider the spread angle the more Lumens you'll need to get light. Best rule of thumb is to add a 0 to the end till it's close to what you want and then adjust from there.>5. With Iray it will help to learn photography lighting techniques, like 3 point lighting.
>Quality setting doesn't do alot afaik. Setting the Max Time and Max Samples really high though will give a better render with less grain or fireflies. But doing so also significantly raises render time.>CTRL+ALT+M1 lets you pan without using that damn cube>interface is sluggish after adding buildings/etc.The biggest improvement can be achieved under Display Optimisation. It’s set to “none” by default, which means no hardware acceleration is at work and your CPU does most of the calculations for the viewport. Try “better” or “best” and see how your hardware holds up. The change will be effective immediately, there’s on need to save anything or restart the app.For those just starting out, the official Daz3D youtube channel seems to have uploaded quite a few guides in the last month. https://www.youtube.com/user/WWWDAZ3DCOM/videos
I have a lot of personal arch viz stuff made that was created by me. I have considered putting up on Unreal marketplace or Unity but both of those require a lot more work to get them accepted.Do people buy this stuff for daz? Like fully done bedrooms/bathrooms/furniture?
>>538297yes. Toss some screenshots at renderosity and DAz3d to see if they will pick it up. Keep in mind, if it's good it will be pirated. No matter where you host it.
daz is a super softwarehttp://vico4444.deviantart.com/gallery/
>>538306ur sick xO
>>538302oh sure im aware of pirates, but a bit of extra income isnt bad and i would never get butthurt over pirating when i do it so much
Reminder: do not install packages with posercf " ps" or bryce in the file name unless you actually have those programs. You are just eating disk space with duplicate items.
Can someone tell me why the Guhzcoituz body wouldn't work? I have Genesis 2 and I see the Guhzcoituz thumb in the installed panel but doubleclicking it doesn't do anything or doesn't open any sliders I can play on the body.
>>539690Pardon if these questiosn are too basic but,Do you have Genesis 2 Female starter, Genesis 2 Female Body Morphs, Genesis 2 Female Head Morphsinstalled?Check the parameters tab too, most sliders will be under there or shaping tab
>>539691I have Genesis 2 Female starter but dunno about those 2 morphs. Don't even know where to locate them. I'll see if the missing morphs are the problem thanks.
>>539692Previous thread has a link to a mixtape host with a lot of those morphs.
>>539693I was in the other thread as well but kat and torrentz sites are no longer active. I had 2 torrents waiting for seeds for G2 morphs for a few months with no seeders. Got no clue where to find those morphs :^(
>>539694search for mylsdj.zip in prior thread. Someone should probably rehost that too.
>>539695found it thx. ill try and see if this works.
>>539695>>539696It seems I already had the Genesis2FemaleMixedMorphResourceKit zip installed as well as pretty much all the other files from the mylsdj zip. Still can't seem to get that morph working.I also downloaded Domina for G2 but can't seem to get it working either.
>>539697did you install via install manager or by extracting into the public docs > daz library folder?
>>539699documents > daz3d > studio > my library
>>539700extracted then?You should be fine to install using the install manager as long as you stick to offline mode. That's what I've been doing at least.Location to place the IMXXXXXX*.zip files is C:\USers\Public\Public Documents\DAZ 3D\InstallManager\Downloadsfor me at least.I try not to dump things directly into a library folder unless I have no other choice. Even then, I'll create a new library folder for it. Keeps things organized imo.Sickleyield has some good advice on this and other topics. http://sickleyield.deviantart.com/journal/Tutorial-Installing-Content-in-DAZ-Studio-508155677
>>539701I'm sure the directories are correct as I can see them all in the content library on the left as well as their thumbnails. It just doesn't give me the option to apply the morphs anywhere on the model. They should appear as sliders on the 'shaping' and 'parameter' tabs right?I doubleclick on the assets on the left, the screen just flashes really fast and nothing changes. Is there a zip perhaps that contains the working content library itself rather than the ripped assets?
>>539702Content from places outside of daz3d are usually just extracted to the library folder.What version of Daz studio are you using? You can get the latest for free from their site and the bases for genesis 2 and 3.As far as your problem, I have no idea. I would try a re-install if it was me. Making sure to delete all daz folders in public docs, user docs and appdata. Alternatively, check the daz forums.
>>539703Daz 4.9library folder as in my documents > daz3d > studio > my library? or somewhere else
>>539704I've got 4.9 on win10x64. The folders the installer created by default are:C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\DAZ 3DandC:\Users\MYWINPROFILENAME\Documents\DAZ 3DAll default daz stuff is installed in the first dir. Second dir is where your user made scenes, renders, etc are stored.I found something that may apply to you on the Daz forums: You might need to clear your morph cache.Go into Edit/Preferences in the General tab. There is a textbox at the bottom under "DSON cache files". Click the "Clear" button.
>>539705Yeah the directories seem right and I cleared the cache. Still no dice, I give up :( Thx for helping anyway
>>539712Pussy. I bet you just didn't install the base bodies correctly.Anyway, does anyone here have this?http://www.daz3d.com/scifi-medusaIn return here's my collection of morphs again, I added plenty more genesis 3 ones, also dicks: https://my.mixtape.moe/zmlvpg.zip
>>540214I think they are correctly installed and some morphs are in there, but the majority fo the things I installed don't show up.
>>540216you probably extracted it wrong. for some zip files you need to do deeper until you find the folder structure that matches your daz library, e.g. folder names like runtime, people, data, etc.
>>540217Well that probably was the problem, I probably missed some subfolders and now it works, thx :3
>>540218I expect to see some sexiness from you soon then
>>540219its too highpoly at the moment. I'll need to figure out a way to disable the subdivision so it stays lowpoly and export it as a skinned rig.
>>540220exporting as .fbx will export it at lowest sub level and skinned. Please note that genesis 2 figures use a different rigging mechanism inside DAZ than outside, for that reason genesis 3 figures are better to work with outside DAz since they only use bones and not a mix between blendshapes (which you cant export) and bones like genesis 2 does.
>>540222noice, thx :^)
>>540222Today I learned. I'll add that to the pasta for next general.
What do you think of Fuse (https://www.mixamo.com/fuse/) as a Daz competitor?
>>540268No competition. The biggest selling point was the ease to make a character, auto rig and export to game engine.There was a thread about another daz/poser-like app that almost seemed like fuse. Out the gate they were charging crazy prices for basic morphs. Aha! Found it! http://www.reallusion.com/iClone/character-creator/>>540214Thanks for this. See any decent shapes not sold in Daz' official store?
>>540269There's also MakeHuman.
>>540270Which has improved a lot recently.
>>540272It is a lot of work to get a MakeHuman model to the point where it is usable in Daz and doesn't look hideous?
>>540288http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/67163/make-human-and-daz-studiobasically lots of work depending on what you want to do.
>>540268>>540269>>540270>>540288>>540289MakeHuman, fuse, iclone etc. are all no competitors to DAZ.DAZ gives you the basic models and software for free and to create a veriety of your own character it takes less than 50 bucks to have all kinds of morphs available. DAZ figures got great topology and rig, they don't look hideous like make human does.If you want to use the figures in games they even sell them in the unity store.
Anyone know if there is something like this: http://www.daz3d.com/genesis-2-legacies-for-genesis-3-female-classicsFor Josie 6 shape on Genesis 3?
>>540296Found Legacy to Gen3 morph converter 1.0 by darkhound1.Initial load, it seemed like the morph converted fine but it ignores the hands. So giant adult hands on Josie.Decided to just transfer the head morph and use J7 body instead.
>>540296>>540298I suppose this is sort of a waste of time. I could always just use the different generation figures and use Genesis 3 Female for Genesis 2 Female(s) for sharing clothing.
Is making animations using the aniMate tool a good idea if you just want to be able to make the animations smooth? Is there a plugin or other tool I can use that's considered better for this? Like let's say I wanna make a character wave their hand or even try making a walking animation what is the best choice?
>>540315Not sure really. I've read good things about animate. Seems to be the best option inside daz for animation blending. Otherwise I guess you'd export to some other app and re-rig re-texture.
Damn my DAZ folder keeps growing, 3/4 of stuff I will never actually use... Hoarder syndrome.
Does Daz (mods included) have any good rigged model that could be usd a reference for the topology? Trying to learn good skinning but I'm not sure where to find a good topology reference.
Does anyknow good tutorials for importing models, textures and other stuff? It seems most of the stuff I have downloaded just doesnt work. I select the entire model in the hierachy and i've tried both double clicking and dragging clothes onto the model, it loads but it doesnt show on the model nor does it show an error message. Help a complete newbie out please.
How much have you spent on Daz content so far? I enjoyed playing with Daz with but I'm afraid I'll have another expensive hobby if I stick with it.
>>540520Each piece of clothing has a person/model type it was made for check OP image and following green text. as far as model imports, you can import any OBJ, FBX and other popular formats. Rigging is a different beast all together. Once you get a hang of what clothes goes with what it will be piece of cake. >>540549Bought mostly on sales here and there but I imagine i'm near 1k now at least. Whoops. Waifus are expensive.
>>540549>actually buying shit for DAZ for your trashy renders, nothing of which you made yourself, or would be worth showing off even had you made it yourself
>>540559>actually buying a camera and accessories for your trashy pictures, nothing of which you made yourself, or would be worth showing off even had you made it yourself
>>540562>not realising that taking shitty renders of models that somebody else created is in no way analogous to taking photos
>>540563It actually is.
>>540632Oh yeah you're right. Sorry I didn't give birth to the human in my photo. sorry i didn't grow the plants in my photo. sorry i didn't design and build the architecture in my photo.> just the same as rendering somebody else's models
>>540562god she's so ugly
>>540716u no liek?
>>538145Anyone knows how to export the rigged FBX without the face?
>>540800Without the face rig or without the face all together?You won't get a proper rig exported.
>>540827Without the face mesh. Deleting afterwards also screws up the rig.
told i can find a slider body generator here for fallout modding.like this.>>540847
Silly question.I'm only interested in using DAZ to generate varying body types quickly and easily of which i'll add clothing/ accessories to to cut out allot of grunt work in my production.Is this the heart of DAZ, I have no need to buy anything or use the softwares other features muchless render in it. Is there other software with equal- better body morph character generation ability as daz?I thought everyone used DAZ the way i intend to use it but was shocked to se most of the renders being all in house with bought assets.
>>540920There are base morphs and then 999999999999 paid morphs
>>540925Ahh so the sliders are limited and you pay for more/ different types?That's fkd, Makes the whole software worthless virtually, I thought it was a huge morph model you can change into anything.
>>540926just pirate m8, another anon has a link here to a mixtape url with a good amount of sliders in it.
>>540927old thread is gone tho.
>>540928yeah but that same anon posted an updated zip in this thread
>>540929Too much trouble, Read about having to be offline etc.I'll just continue to make my own models for the different body types.
>>540930I use pirated junk all the time but whatever is clever.
Anyone knows how to do this ? >>540800>>540831
>>540943rigs dont export well
>>540966But surely if you can delete the face part in DAZ and test if rotating the bones propely deform the faceless rig after deleting the face, they should work fine after you export it.
>>540971How do you delete the face in DAZ?
>>540966>>540969>>540971>>540972First off, the exported riggedgenesis 3 models work just fineSecondly, to remove the face of a rigged model you first make a copy of it, then you remove the rig of the first model, remove the face, then rig it again, then copy skinweights from the copy you made to it.In 3ds max you can do that with the skin wrap modifier or, with the skin utilities.Maya has something like that too, I don't know about blender.>>540926>>540930You don't need to be offline to use pirated DAZ shit, and seriously, how lazy are you that you couldn't ctrl+f for "mixtape"The morphs are here:>>540214Btw, I am still looking for that scifi medusa model, so if anyone got it, please share.
>>540980You are the hero this thread needs. If I had $25 I would buy you that medusa
>>540980>first make a copy of it, then you remove the rig of the first model, remove the face, then rig it again, then copy skinweights from the copy you made to it.Thanks brah. I'll give it a shot.
>>540981Don't need to, I just noticed that it's finally on dazposer.net
>>540980>>540982lmao I just realized that deleting rigged meshes in Max don't screw up the rig. Maya destroys the weights entirely but apparently Max doesn't.thx for the help anyway
>>540984No problem, just in case you need it for something else I just made a mini tutorial, since copying skin weights like this can be useful for other stuff too.Skin Wrap Modifier works similar, but I like the fine control of skin utilities where you can directly match source to target bones. Maya doesn't have a fine control like that.
>>540990Thanks for the info. While I got you here, do you know how to morph only certain parts of the body in DAZ? I like the bodybuilder slider in G2 but I don't want it to effect all parts of the body. The parameters tab doesn't give me any options regarding to that, would you know how to do it?
>>540992I'm not sure that's possible. I usually use the whole body sliders to get to a base shape which I then modify with more fine grained sliders, for example from the ShapeShift pack.
>>540984You know in Maya you can detach a skinned mesh without deleting weights, right?
>>540992if you are just interested in the abs, just crank bodybuilder details to max.
Where da huge boobs at? I thought this was Daz/poser!
Anyone experience any glitches trying to animate in Daz? I'd press a frame in AniMate2 or the timeline and the models would spazz out into a different position no matter what I do. Someone able to help?
>>541383Not sure senpai, try the daz forums? I haven't begun to try animations yet due to how damn long everything takes to render. Need to upgrade I guess.
Can anyone identify the character used in this promo? No credits listed on the product page.
sup guys. Noob here. looking to purchase either Aiko 7 or The Girl 7 for a waifu game. Any recomendations as to which is better? It's gonna be in Unity probably. I'm gonna probably go for Aiko because it's the more realistic of the two and doesn't look like borderline cp.
>>541648Those only require base G3F which comes free with Daz anyways.Pick up the mixtape url zip with lots of body sliders
>>541649Thanks, man. :D. plz tell me the mixtape has vaginas/cocks, too.
>>540721she has her moments. I liked her in that tim burton one that came out a while back.
>>541650no but you can find plenty of those on ps-ds.info
Please include this in next mixtape pack. https://www.sharecg.com/v/85319/browse/21/DAZ-Studio/G3F-Abs-Morphs
>>541653Awesome site, thx :D
Post youre waifus
Read something about Iray not supporting the Geforce 10XX series, is this still the case?
>>541822>irayThats dead software
>>541822I dont have a 1080 to test it out but that shouldnt be the case as long as nvidia still ships with cuda cores. Using a mixmatched 980/780 and its fine.

>>542213Sup gauss, it's Dace :D? Liking the model.
>>542222hey hey :) I've been meaning to show you these screenshots. Apparently DAZ makes wonders in Unity as well. There can be a flash game made out of these, even create a story. Don't think I'll be getting into using these animations with flash though.Can you let me know when you go online ?

>>542336G2 female with a mix of Guhz Body and bodybuilder details
>>538145GayFucking vanilla Skyrim has better character creation than base DAZ
>>542448m8, many of those skyrim body mods are based off daz/poser figures
>>542299Thats neat. Are you gonna make something out of this?
>>542448Retard opinion, any vieo game character creation pales in comparison to what you can do in DAZ.Daz has got hundreds of sliders if you got the proper packages and its easy as fuck to use.
Anyone know where I can get Samus' Zero Suit for any of the bodysuits for GF2 or GF3?
>>542492Closest I've found are the ones for v4 on sharecg, all pretty low res. Best to make one yourself. Or remap the ones used by the in game models for xps/xnalaraUnrelated, I'm really happy to see some pose creators/vendors actually supply flat footed pose options for their sets. Enough of those fucking stripper heels man..
Anyone knows how to make cunts and dick have skin color?They've got a grey texture for me, I thought it'd stop when I'd lauch Iray but it just becomes whiteLooked in the parameters, didnt find anythingDo I have a missing file or what's the deal?
>>542656Which versions of the genitals do you have? Usually, you need to select it and navigate to the materials folder of Michael 7 (for example) and manually apply the genital texture.
>>542451>>542484Apparently neither of you can fucking read.>Many of those skyrim body modsHe said vanilla Skyrim, retard.>if you have the proper packagesHe said base DAZ, retard.
>>542658>playing vanilla skyrimBut seriously base character designer is dog shit in syrim.>but MUH opinion
>>542657I've got the gens from V7 and M7 but I havent got M7 and V7I know you have to manually add the gens, that's what I doThe issue is that once applied the color isnt matchingPic related (censored the NSFW parts)
>>542662You're manually applying from the content library?I've seen some color mismatch before but that was for Gen2 and applying iray to the body but not genitals.That looks to be some install error or incompatibility with the gens themselves. Or maybe unsupported character? the PSDS site should have a a fairly recent update of the gen3 characters. At least, the main ones.Personally, I prefer sledgehammer's genitals over the others available.
>>542663>You're manually applying from the content library?Yes>That looks to be some install error or incompatibility with the gens themselves. Or maybe unsupported character? It's weird because the shape and all work fine, but only the color isnt matching>the PSDS site should have a a fairly recent update of the gen3 characters. At least, the main ones.Got most of my stuff from thereGot the gens from the Arabella bundleWanted to get V7 but the GigaPeta (only working share site among those proposed) had its file deleted
>>542665Some of the gens installs were a bit messy. Like 5 update files, I just extracted by date and overwrote when prompted. check dazposer.net and skyback.ru as well
NVIDIA GeForce 840M user hereCan I use DAZ properly or is it too weak?Whenever I activate Iray, stuff remain pixelized
>>542669You can do it. I run >>542663 on my 950mDon't forget to enable BEST under Display Optimization >>538148
>>542671Isnt 950m better than 840m?Don't know much on the topic, but since they're both "m" and yours have bigger numbers, I think soNow maybe the difference isnt significant
>>542673yeah but I doubt its a huge difference. Dont expect fast 1080p renders in iray. Save that stuff for home PC. Just do drafts in like 720p
>shape shift sliders don't go as far as I want them tooBummer. Anyone know how to edit this?
>>542723Should be the same for any other slider.Keep in mind they are not really intended to go farther than default.L: bodybuilder at 1 (max for Genesis 2 characters, gen 3 is 100%)R: bodybuilder at 2 Keep in mind, if a slider controls more than its own deform, like bodybuilder controlling bodybuilder DETAILS AND SIZE, you will need to unlock all the subs before changing the slider.unlocking limits:slider > cog > parameter settings > UNCHECK "use limits"Rear surfer guy, he, his clothes and all items scaled 200%, bodybuilder and sub sliders unlocked. Set at 5.
>>542675Who is this semen demon ?
>>542728That's a big guy.
>>542656>>542662HereTried a few stuff and apprently when I apply a "genitalia MAT" while selecting the genitalias, it works at making it skin colorThe issue is that I have only one genitalia MAT (Mina) and it has pubes on itThe default "G3F Genitalia" files didnt include any MAT or anythingWas my file incomplete or is it normal to be unable to use gens until you have many "gens MAT" from different preset characters?
>>542791Oh, the base G3F might not have gen textures at all. Need a character at least. I think.. I don't really pirate from Daz but renderosity/otica is open season imo. I just use a separate library.
>>542796Yeah, I think I understand how it works now (just relooked at the pic there >>542663 and it makes sense)I'm new to DAZ and so far I've mostly done stuff randomly instead of watching tutos (although I doubt I'd have found a youtube tuto on how gens work anyway)
>>542797True enough. I suggest going through the official daz videos on youtube at least once. Sickleyield has some really good ones for detailed things after.
>>542796>>542798Btw, what's the matter with ps-ds.info?TurboBit and Uploaded are garbage (must pay to DL) and GigaPeta often has its interesting content deleted (notably Victoria7 and Micheal7)Anywhere where I can find these two?
>>542797There are a lot of little problems that cause snags in learning. Its nice that Daz FINALLY added a launcher to organize and install things you bought but there are so many easy ways to break an item or install wrong and then you just rage quit.I've finally hit my stride with current install after completely removing and downloading again like 10+ times over the course of my usage of Daz. Multiple "user libraries" really helps. Specially if you fuck up an install. Also really good for organization's sake.Keep the default "My DAZ 3D Library" for things installed via the Daz Install Manager.Then make new user library folders next to My DAZ 3D Library for things. Ex: Renderotic, Renderosity, freebies.http://sickleyield.deviantart.com/journal/Tutorial-Installing-Content-in-DAZ-Studio-508155677>>542799The sites I regularly use are: http://ps-ds.info/http://dazposer.net/http://skyback.ru/Sometimes you just need to deal with the shitty download sites.KAT used to be a good resource but I see some things on demonoid now. You might still find some things seeded if you check kat cache. Though those sites are usually riddled with adware.

Anyone know how they make hair for these Daz models? I have a general understanding of how they seem to be made, but i need like a tut or something and what program they use? Seems to be just long transparent strips of geometry planes with a hair texture painted on.
>>543310DAZ will load it just fine. The trouble you'll run into is with the textures and shaders. You'll have to adjust them to whatever render engine you are using like Iray, 3Delight, or Reality to get them to look correct when you render.
Anybody know where I can get fully setup iray scenes, like the example ones? I just want to drop my futa waifus into the scene and hit render.
>>542800>check kat cachewhats kat cache precious? can anybody provide me with a link please? tpb just doesnt compete
>>543365Google search, its basically partial kat search, most torrents unseeded or not even listed but you could get lucky.
>>542344why do all my josie skins look like shit? how the fuck do i get her to look this good?
>>543398Lighting lighting lighting, and surface options. Check SecondCircle's tutorials out http://second-circle.deviantart.com/art/Daz3d-Iray-Skin-Shader-Settings-2-533718549
>>543398Are you using Jose 6 or 7?Jose 6's MATs are made for 3Delight while 7's Mats are made for Iray. You may need to make adjustments depending on which renderer you prefer to use. Lighting also makes a huge difference in your renders as well.
>>543403Josie 7 was too much of a change for me. Need to convert the textures and morphs.
>>543398Josie like most of the Daz models is a doll faced abomination created by people who seem to have never actually seen a real human face. Just searching through them is a horror show of tiny nose, huge lipped uncanny monsters. If you want skin to look good i recommend looking up photography lighting techniques. Usually a Fill Light for eliminating deep shadow which you can also use a dome for, a Key Light to give depth as your main lighting, and a Rim Light to give the shadow areas a bit of light.
What are some quick ways to navigate the viewports?I know CTRL+ALT+M1 allows you to circle the selected object without draggong the circle or box.
>>543407If you go to Windows > Workspace > Customize you can select the action and setup whatever hot keys you want.
>>543409I'm not home to check but is it possible to set up hotkeys like say, blender?
>>543410I've never done it but you can create custom actions. These use DAZ Script so you could write your own if need. Since I've never used it, I don't know how powerful it is. Once your custom action is created, you can assign hot keys to them so you can execute them whenever you want.
Are the templates really necessary when doawnloading stuff?Because I downloaded the Victoria 7 bundle on ps-ds.inrfo, and only the 1st part was on GigaPetaThing is that all the interesting stuff was in this first part, and the 2nd part probably contain mostly the templatesAre they really necessary or can I do without?
>>543421templates are only if you want to make new skins and clothes etc. if using daz you also dont need any files mentioning _PS or posercf, bryce etc.
>>543401thanks for the link, I will for sure study lighting>>543403josie 7 and iray, I can make her not look so bad if I use a different g3f models skin>>543406thanks for the info, I really do need to learn lighting. Is there no easy mode one click instant good lighting?

Anybody have the Guhzcoituz body morp, please?
>>543519There are several morphs by him for Genesis 2 and 3. Some are available on the mixtape url in this thread.
Why won't certain items ever show up in daz even though i see them in the list when i import them?
>>543520 thx bro
>>543521Assuming you are talking about imported models or objects. Likely the scale is microscopic or xbox huge.
This thread is severely lacking WIPsShow us what you are working on!

>>543598>>543561At least we keep to this containment thread
>>543158>Newer things on dazposer.net only have 3downloads as mirrorsFour things. And within a week new items will replace them and those 4 items will have the same novafile/rapidgator hosts like everything else. Bottom line: if I wanted to spend a monthly fee to access 3D content, I'd subscribe to Rendo Prime and Platinum Club and actually get to choose what I download. Having to type "JANUVIA" after switching my VPN's IP isn't enough of a disincentive to make me pay some slant-eyed Jew. The day Rapidgator gets taken down, he's going to blow his brains out.

>>543602>mfw there are people out there paying full price for everything. >mfw they are probably using a mac too
>>543602But won't they find out I pirated stuff if I connect now to download these?A dude said that when you pirated stuff you must avoid connecting ever again
>>540464Same here, it starts to scare meI had 511GB left of memory before I started DAZ a week ago and now I only have 495
>>540464>>543620I believe you guys can do better!
>>543621This is after I deleted all the pirated stuff though :<
>>543621Small time. This is just my Poser Runtime folder. This isn't even my Daz stuff.
>>543621You're adorable, kid
>>543624>>543625That's more like it!Should I include HDRI?
I HAVE NOT SLEPT IN TWO DAYS AND I CANT STOP FAPPING

>>543642>tfw 25 and can't fap as much as when I was 16-20 because my dick respond lessI miss the old times when I could fap 3 times a day and still get hard
I thought there was gonna be waifu posting?
>>543587I'm just painting a mask for the lingerie in mudbox. Here's the bumpy one.Maybe I should paint creases and folds for the pantyhose as well
>>543540I'm working on recreating this dress. My only difficulty is making heels, I'm not sure how to model them without having them deform all weird after I've imported into daz.
>>543663>>543712very nice I like
>>543712What I do when I make footwear with heels is make the footwear flat without a heel. Fit it to the figure, then pose the figure how I want it to look with the heels. Send the footwear back to my modelling program in the posed position and make the heel for it.Then I take the heel and place it on the flat footwear model.Now send that back to Daz and fit it to the figure and then go into the weight map editor and make sure only the foot and not the toes weightmaps are applied to the heel (erase any errant weightmaps that would cause it to deform).
>>543738holy shit, thanks for the info! I was wondering how people do it.
>>543712Nice work, man!
What do you guys use DAZ for? do you sell your models or like,, what? do you just masturbate to this stuff? How does one make money/use of this stuff? Have any of you made profit from this? if not what have you gotten out of this?
Daily reminder that this exists https://torrentz2.eu/search?f=daz3dI already got 37 Gb of content for genesis 3 including almost all the pro bundlesThere is also alphareign a torrent search engine that is superior to torrentz2 but you need an invite or go to the site when it has open sign ups
>>543747I use daz as a magnificent reference for drawning, all the poses, angles, clothes and types of body in a nice cool software>b-but is not like real model and a-and...Fuck off, daz is excellent if you are already good and know how the human body works thank to hundreds of hours of drawing naked real life bitches
>>543747I originally got into Daz to use as a reference for 2D illustration. But then I discovered I actually enjoy modelling, particularly clothing, so I make models for Daz figures and give them away on ShareCG.
>>543747I'm actually making money off of this stuff. Daz Studio itself comes with everything you need to make content for it, and Renderosity is a good marketplace to start in. I'll probably start selling on Daz3D once I've gotten more experience, but making this stuff is both fun and relaxing.I might actually be able to quit this shitty factory job if the money continues to come in.And yeah, fapping is involved. Its kinda unavoidable.
>>543573god damn that face is horrific
>>543738Anon, you just saved me a fuckton of time. Massive thanks.
>>543763No problemo Anon. Glad to be of service. Although your shoe needs 5 more anatomies.
How do I add the genitals to victoria 7?
>>543754Try russian websites. They love pedophile daz stuff
>>543767like what? I figured the level of detail was good enough. Most everything else can be handled with textures.
>>543754>and Renderosity is a good marketplace to start inHave you had any gripes about dealing with them? Any particular advantage to going with DAZ besides exposure (i.e. are their store/vendor cuts better or worse than Rendo's)?
>>543799Vendor cuts are actually better in terms of non-exclusivity. However, my main gripe is that the checks don't always arrive on time, at least they didn't for me. Not that I was depending on them. Its also a possibility that the Post Office screwed up, but the money did eventually arrive.They'll do direct deposit, but the process they use for that is a bit outdated, and you have to go out of your way to ask them about it.
>>543775ПAШEЛ HAХУЙ !!!
>>543754Link to store or products?
>>543821I only got one item up for G2F so far, but I've got 3 more in the works.https://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/?uid=530055
>>543825That's hot, will pick it up on payday. Any previews of what else you're working on?
>>543791Just anatomies. Five more. Always five.Always more.
>>543826Well, >>543712 is my current project for G3F.I'm working on the Cat meme Lingerie, however somebody already released a version for G3F, thankfully mine is for G2F. And I'm also working on a bunnysuit.
>>543830This is the bunnysuit, I do all of my modeling in Silo, and I use mudbox for the textures. I'm also practicing with zbrush but none of my stuff in that is good enough to post.
>>543830>>543831good stuff senpai
The fuck is dis ?!?!
>>543848Someone who has watched too many Troma films
>>543848You know whats crazy? I would rather see that kind of shit a thousand times than see THIS >>543073 even once.
>>543857The guys has a nice B movie feeling in his renders look at the third promo imagehttps://www.renderotica.com/store/sku/54827_Dickson-Dick-the-Monster-Cock
>>543859Dude has more talent than half the artists on Daz.And he uses it to make some crazy ass shit.
>>543831>SiloNever heard of it. Just checked out the trailer and I guess the big deal is the topology tools?
>>543872that and its really lightweight, and has awesome uv unwrapping tools as well.
>>543874and also being total abandonware just like Hexagon
>>543888I so wish Daz would either make Hexagon open source so it can have a chance at support or update the damned software. It has one of the best UIs of any modeller I've ever used but it's so desperately in need of a 64-bit version and updated features. It was a hell of a good modeller in 2008 but now a days it's sorely lacking in features.
>>543888It works fine for me, they could never update it again, but as long as it still runs, its everything I need in a modeler.Silo is lightweight, cheap, has a beautiful UI, great topology tools, and great uv tools. I fail to see how a lack of updates could ruin those things.
>>543911>I fail to see how a lack of updates could ruin those things.UV mapping gradually being replaced by UDIM UV mapping
>>543913>UDIM UV mappingsay what?
>>543914Its that new kind of UV mapping where multiple maps fit side-by-side instead of on top of each other.But UDIM isn't the standard yet. So I'll choose to stick with Silo for now.
>>543747>do you just masturbate to this stuff?Das rite baby>How does one make money/use of this stuff?Get other people to masturbate to your stuff and you'll be making three grand a month
>>543995Is that for real sir, for I would greatly enjoy earning mad dosh for the sort of shit we used to post to Renderotica for nothing
Guhcoitz has a new shape up.>>544009Yes but it helps to have your own characters, you can find poorly posed default and base models everywhere.
>>544009Then you've got guys like this. Rendering from the perspective window with headlamp on.
>>544010looks like the old one with a wierder abs. does it have slimmer hips ?
>>544010>have your own charactersYeah there's a series updated on sadpanda where I've started picking out the characters they use, but at least the artist doesn't have shit taste.>>544011Could be worse, could be using lordosis poses.
>>543995I've thought about doing that, but I doubt I would be able to keep up with the expected rate of updates.
>>544028there's a lot of careful thinking that goes into mind control rape stories, you know
>>544029well that's the other thing, I'm more into vanilla anyways. I doubt I'd find an audience.
>>544032Vanilla is actually the biggest market. Everyone does vanilla though, just a lot of it is terrible so its over saturated. When something different pops up everyone rushes it and it makes it seem like niche sells more. People also do it because its their fetish. If you make well done vanilla and do it consistently you'll get an audience.
Some Christmas presents:Genesis 1 & 2 Morph pack: https://a.pomf.cat/sgnwhq.zip (added ultimate breast morphs & breast control)Genesis 3 Morph Pack: https://a.pomf.cat/yyknpb.zip (added genitalia, ultimate breast morphs & breast control, glute control, last two morphs from guhzcoituz)mixtape didn't work, so grab this stuff asap, because I don't know how reliable pomf.cat is.
>>544034>Vanilla is actually the biggest marketI have seen next to no Poser/DAZ porn that was not:rapemind controltransformationrobotsgiantess/crushabsurd tit/dick proportionspedo/sswhere's this vanilla you refer to
>>544067you forgot monsters, can't forget the monsters
That dickson artist has a new outfit for G3F, living armor just like in my hentai doujins!
>>544069>living armor just like in my hentai doujinsI like this guy's pose sets but this genuinely embarrassed meAt least it wasn't Senketsu?
>>544068Seriously, I cannot off the top of my head think of a single 3D doujin that was about regular sex without some measure of distortion but honestly that's half the reason people use this stuff after "I believed that learning composition, lighting, posing, texturing, and torrenting took less time than learning to draw"
>>544073On one hand, there's a ton of content available.On the other, it all looks like it was made in 1998.
Can anyone ID the clothing this character is wearing?
>>544067>>544072I was speaking in general. Daz just seems to be over saturated in only people doing their fetish. Look at other mediums and vanilla is the higher proportion compared to everything else. (drawn doujins, sfm, blender, VN, etc)
>>544067Because there's no fucking money in vanilla 3D porn. If people want vanilla porn there's a shitload of live action porn with real live people fucking. 3D the money is in finding a fetish that's not being catered to in live action porn either because it is to extreme or illegal to make for real (rape, pizza) or would be practically impossible to make live action (dragon, tentacle rape, size queen etc). Live action vanilla porn will always be easy to find and of better quality than 3D vanilla porn so nobody is going to pay money for 3D vanilla porn.If you want to make money find an obscure fetish that nobody else is catering to and become the dominant supplier of that kink.
Nobody uses V4 anymore?
Something I've been toying around with...
>>544137I dunno man, porn stars seem to be getting uglier and uglier. Surely people want to see vanilla porn with actual beautiful characters.
>>544167I do, gifmaker
>>544177Morrowind?Increase the polycount on these sarcophagi, god damn. Or chamfer these hard edges, at least.
>>544167This is spookier than the skeleton below.>>544213It's probably a mix of older props. Would have to import to another app, subD and export back to Daz/Poser.
>>543995Shit's tight, bro. :D You're great at making facial expressions. If I were to make any complaint it's that your characters all have the same face, should broaden your horizons and try making maybe a new race or some variations, Might boost u up to 6,000 ;)
>>544024It does look remarkably like Shadow Dancer
Don't have Daz. But is it possible to port the models without having Daz itself and just the model file to a Obj. file?
>>544325Some characters and most items/props will have obj available but if you want the character to look like anything besides the default, very base model. You will need to just download daz and get the morphs for that character. Move sliders, export.
>>544325>Don't have DazI have no interest whatsoever in your excuse masquerading as a reason for not downloading and installing an application that costs literally nothing here
>>544325>Don't have Daz. But is it possible to port the models without having Daz itselfJust like it's possible to convert .MAX without 3DSMax. The only way out is through, pal.
>>544325Download Daz. It's free and easy to use even if all you use it for is exporting Daz content as .obj.No excuse for not downloading a free program if you need to use content for that program.
>>544332>>544395Don't want Jews hacking and tracking my computer. That's why I avoid all open source software.
>>544528It's not open source
>>544528>open source/tv/ is the retard board
>>544395Not exactly free
over 300 posts, need new thread>>544528retard
>>544598>Not exactly freeas in free beer, not freetard
>>544605so not exactly free
>>544606>exactly freeyou've invented a term so I can't contradict whatever meaning you ascribed to it, Stallman
What's the post limit before autosage?
>>544607If people are tracking your computer then your not free. Daz has encryption that tracks your computer via the Cloud. So no. Not free as in freedom.
>tfw you realize you are a grown man just playing doll house/barbies
>>544858Embrace it. This hobby has overflown to 1/6 scale figures for me as well.
>>544859will do senpai
can people get in trouble for rendering 1000 year old dragon lolis?and are we gonna make a new thread?
>>544959I'll make a new one later tonight. Will start a paste bin with the useful info from the top of the thread.
>>544959Not sure on legality, plenty of josie presets are used in some of the 3d porn on e-hentai and exhentai etc though.Also, what are you rendering with and how long did that test take?
>>538145Why is anything daz/poser a thread in /3/?It's all amateur garbage at best and only puts money in the pocket of mormon scum. Even if you pirate the shit, we need more creative and inspiration threads to revive this wasteland of of a board.
>>545250I hear that. At the very least it's good practice for comp&lighting.Inb4 >lolCUDA >iRay dead
>>544959Not sure if backstory matters. They'll get a physiologist to study it and determine the lifecycle of the model. I don't think you will get in trouble unless you live in a hyper conservative country like New Zealand. It's just digital media, for fuck's sake.>>545250Because Daz is the hero /3/ deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt it, because it can take it. It's not a hero, it's a silent guardian, a watchful protector...a dark knight.
