>biased opinion on the best sites for quality purchased content
Daz3d.com, renderosity and renderotica

Base 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 shit
Freebies 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

extracted 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\Downloads
for 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
>>
>>539701
I'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?
>>
>>539702
Content 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.

I've got 4.9 on win10x64. The folders the installer created by default are:
C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\DAZ 3D
and
C:\Users\MYWINPROFILENAME\Documents\DAZ 3D

All 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.

its 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.
>>
>>540220
exporting 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.

What do you think of Fuse (https://www.mixamo.com/fuse/) as a Daz competitor?
>>
>>540268
No 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/

>>540269
There's also MakeHuman.

>>540270
Which has improved a lot recently.

>>540272
It is a lot of work to get a MakeHuman model to the point where it is usable in Daz and doesn't look hideous?
>>
>>540288
http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/67163/make-human-and-daz-studio
basically lots of work depending on what you want to do.

>>540268
>>540269
>>540270
>>540288
>>540289
MakeHuman, 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.

>>
>>540315
Not 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.

Each 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.

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.
>>
>>540920
There are base morphs and then 999999999999 paid morphs
>>
>>540925

Ahh 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.

First off, the exported riggedgenesis 3 models work just fine

Secondly, 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

You 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"

No 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.
>>
>>540990
Thanks 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?
>>
>>540992
I'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.
>>
>>540984
You know in Maya you can detach a skinned mesh without deleting weights, right?

I've got the gens from V7 and M7 but I havent got M7 and V7
I know you have to manually add the gens, that's what I do
The issue is that once applied the color isnt matching

You'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.

It's weird because the shape and all work fine, but only the color isnt matching

Got most of my stuff from there
Got the gens from the Arabella bundle
Wanted to get V7 but the GigaPeta (only working share site among those proposed) had its file deleted

Some 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

Isnt 950m better than 840m?
Don't know much on the topic, but since they're both "m" and yours have bigger numbers, I think so
Now maybe the difference isnt significant

yeah 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

Should 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.

Tried a few stuff and apprently when I apply a "genitalia MAT" while selecting the genitalias, it works at making it skin color
The issue is that I have only one genitalia MAT (Mina) and it has pubes on it

The default "G3F Genitalia" files didnt include any MAT or anything
Was my file incomplete or is it normal to be unable to use gens until you have many "gens MAT" from different preset characters?
>>
>>542791
Oh, 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.
>>
>>542796
Yeah, 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)

True enough. I suggest going through the official daz videos on youtube at least once. Sickleyield has some really good ones for detailed things after.

There 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.

The sites I regularly use are:

Sometimes you just need to deal with the shitty download sites.

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.
>>
>>543310
DAZ 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.

>>
>>543398
Are 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.
>>
>>543403
Josie 7 was too much of a change for me. Need to convert the textures and morphs.
>>
>>543398
Josie 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.
>>
>>543407
If you go to Windows > Workspace > Customize you can select the action and setup whatever hot keys you want.
>>
>>543409
I'm not home to check but is it possible to set up hotkeys like say, blender?
>>
>>543410
I'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 GigaPeta
Thing is that all the interesting stuff was in this first part, and the 2nd part probably contain mostly the templates
Are they really necessary or can I do without?
>>
>>543421
templates 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.
>>
>>543401
thanks for the link, I will for sure study lighting
>>543403
josie 7 and iray, I can make her not look so bad if I use a different g3f models skin

Four 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.

>>
>>543663
>>543712
very nice I like
>>
>>543712

What 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).

I'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.
