Couple of Qs
1. How the flying fuck does rigidity maps work? I must be doing something wrong cause I thought rigidity maps meant making rigid clothing like armor without worrying about it distorting in the chest. Good luck using hoops in your clothing too..

2.Everyone seems to make amazing textures. Is this from scans or are they painted? And either way, how do they do it?

3. Has anyone tried animating in cycles or 3dmax? Iray takes too long for me so I'm hoping there are alternatives.
>>
>>569578
1. never heard of them.
2. not sure, maybe a combo of both?
3. The biggest hurtle for me is rigging them again once in blender/etc. Also re-assigning all the damn texture maps and adjusting. Also constant out of memory errors in cycles.
>>

2. gotta do what you gotta do, y'know?

i gotta pull out my old laptop and copy all my downloads to my new computer but first a question

when i take the male body (it was version 3 of something, i don't remember but i know it was like the standard/popular one) and blow out the body sliders to make a ginormous ol meat man, i'd end up with vertices sticking out from under the armpits. I assume they didn't account for people making dudes with the level of girth i'm after, so the mesh gets distorted in funky ways there. Is there any way to fix it in DAZ or do I need to get comfy with other programs, too?
>>
>>569610
Not sure what you mean senpai. Distortion when exporting or something?
>>
>>569611
Nah, even before that. When you make the shoulders/shoulder width really big, points start sticking out of the armpits.
>>
>>569613
show me your sliders. Sounds like you are scaling the base chest section or something rather than a morph group.
>>
>>569614
I gotta reinstall shit first, but I will
>>
Uh. How do I install shit? I have the body/head/expression morphs and Shape Shift all downloaded from the pastebin, but I don't remember how to use any of it.

Wasn't there something about disconnecting from the internet or disabling some internet settings in DAZ? I did all this once and I swear I read all about it then.
>>
>>569621
You can literally use the installer to work offline, or you can manually drag/drop in to your daz library. Daz has no content authentication on it.

If those files are zipped and named properly, use the install manager via dropping them in C:\Users\Public\Documents\DAZ 3D\InstallManager\Downloads

If the zip you downloaded doesn't follow the common naming convention accepted by the install manager, dump it into a separate library folder. (you will then have to add that library manually to your content browser)

I like keeping content from different sites in different folders. My libraries include the default daz library "My DAZ 3D Library", Renderosity, Renderotica, and Freebies.
You will need to add the libraries under either DAZ Studio Formats or Poser Formats (or both) under the Content Library tab.

attached are common folder names in content you would find in a library. This is generally what your root libraries should look like.

I thought rigidity maps are the ones that stop distortion whenever you fuck around with slides. Like stopping the armor piece you have from just caving in the center because you made the boobs swing out a bit more. Turns out it's not.

I hear that FBX is a decent format to export but I'm chewing my way through guides cause no one actually explains if fbx contains rigging etc.
>>
>>569639
FBX does contain rigging. DAZ just uses a non standard armature. So it's fucking retarded to work with. There is a few kind of easy to follow guides on converting a daz armature to a maya one.

You have to export to blendshapes for them. They don't use bones. They're called morphs in daz.
>>

you're welcome
>>

in general terms, is there a tut somewhere that anyone knows of that goes over the differences with bones and morph targets?
>>
>>569578
>2.Everyone seems to make amazing textures. Is this from scans or are they painted? And either way, how do they do it?

Probably substance. All the PAs I know use substance designer and substance painter.
>>
Question: Is there a way to export any generation of genesis or even the older models from either DAZ Studio or Poser with JCMs intact and already set up such that they are automatically activated as the appropriate joints move?
>>
>>569640
Like>>569648 said, the expressions are not possible unless you bring the morphs over. Either that or figure out bones for it I suppose.

>>569669
Substance? Ahhh shit. It's UI is so fucking confusing to me. Guess I gotta learn it eventually.
>>
>>569665
>the differences with bones and morph targets
Morph targets are deforms for the purpose of making characters look different and consist of mesh deltas for a specific part or parts. Bones handle movement and employ application specific rigging tech –which can include corrective morph targets as well as weight mapping.

Expressions are where the two often overlap but that's a matter of convenience for figure developers. Remember that the video game approach of fully boning a head for expressions is relatively recent and DAZ/Poser adopted the idea from them, not the other way around.

That's like saying everyone uses photoshop to create textures. There are specialized programs like substance designer/painter that optimize the texture development process, though. I'm pretty sure that there are programs for making hair meshes in the same way, or at the very least, plugins.
>>
>>570177
> I think it has to be this way so therefore it is
Millennials, everyone.

No. There is no Marvelous Designer for hair. You are making strip planes and deforming them.

But clearly your imagination knows more than the tutorials I've read so maybe you should answer the question yourself.

> optimize the texture development process
You make a small metallic looking texture then stretch it the fuck out and put a layer underneath with a single diffuse color then set the metallic layer to multiply. Specularity is the shader's job.

The next time you get an urge to decide something must be a particular way slam your hand in a door until the instinct stops recurring.

Why is it that you can't use a HDRI map as background AND lighting at the same time while having the light levels just right?

When I do this:
>background is perfect
>actual models are underexposed
*cranking up exposure*
>background is completely overblown
>models are perfectly lit

I know I could use a separate light source as "sun" but why isn't it just simply possible to level out background exposure and model exposure? Or even simpler, handling the intensity levels for same HDRI map separately for lighting and background?

Same problem here.
>>
>>570425
I guess in DazStudio the HDRI maps really are just meant as ambient lighting help and you're supposed to do the light setup using actual light sources but I think it's a fucking shame.

In many cases using a HDRI map would be completely sufficient as lighting. When you turn the dome invisible you can see that the lighting with a map would be completely sufficient but when you turn the dome back to visible it ruins it.
I also tried making a fake dome with the same map applied but of course it just blocks all light from coming into the scene, the floor isn't working anymore of course and overall it's a pain anyways.

Why is this software so scuffed?

I mean it has great potential since it's easy to pick up, and you can create nice looking models by just clicking pre-made shit to your model, also makes pretty high quality renders with ease. But it lacks in everything else. The animating tools are the worst I've ever seen, most of the options are very limited and shit like that. It feels more like a game about making characters than actual 3D program. It's fun to fiddle with, but there's not much to learn other than getting your renders look better.

you can make a very nice render with very little effort or skill, if you are brand new to the idea of rendering and 3d modelling totally, it would takem aybe 3-5 hours of reading and practising to get something it would tkae someone months of practise to get equal quality of by modeling/texturing themselves in another program

How does the relation between Genesis and Michael/Victoria? I see everywhere that they're their own figures, so they're not based on the Genesis models?

http://daz3dfree.com/addon-resource/anatomy-4-pro-bundle/
I wanted to use this pack that seems to need Michael/Victoria and I can't make it work for shit. Tried to install it in my custom Daz library and can't find it at all in my content in Daz.
>>
>>571127
They where their own models up to and including v4 and m4. Genesis started the practice of using one mesh(now2) for all daz3ds character's.

As far as that pack is concerned from the numbering convention alone I would assume you would need m4 and v4 for it. Also, custom library locations aren't auto detected by daz. you will have to point to it.
>>
>>571127
Michael 4 and victoria 4 are their own separate models iirc. Michael and victoria 5/6/7/8 are based on genesis 1/2/3/8.

>Also, custom library locations aren't auto detected by daz.

I never had any problem about this until now though, and I did set up the custom location in the preferences. I guess I'll try to download an install v4 and m4 then.

Correct.

>Why did they go from genesis 3 to 8 anyway? So confusing.

Because they were stupid enough to retain the names Victoria and Michael even though post Generation 4 they aren't the base figures any longer, only characters for the base figures.

Since they couldn't go backwards with the V/M numbering, they chose to go forwards with the Genesis numbering the way Windows went from 8 to 10.

I know its got to be something so simple, but I just can't figure out why its bouncing so strong onto the floor.

https://community.hivewire3d.com/threads/official-announcement-hivewire-3d-to-publish-animals-through-daz-3d.2121/

tl;dr: Chris Creek, one of the 3 original founders of DAZ (later fired by the new management) who formed his own content store was contacted by DAZ who wanted exclusives on selling his recent animal models (housecat, morphable large cat, horse).
His only demand was that DAZ continue to sell both the Poser and DS versions of each; DAZ in return gets exclusive sales of the products and nowhere on DAZ's store is "HiveWire3D" referenced because God forbid someone see "HiveWire3D" and google it finding their store (the vendor is only to be known as HW3D).
I'm starting to think Renderosity is the only company consistently turning a profit at this point.
>>
>>571285
>simply because they are pissed about the fact they will never make money at this
What a garbage fucking motivation to pick up Poser or DAZ.
If you need money it's in modeling for studios or becoming an actual content vendor, not competing with other cockroaches to render porn with the same exact program and resources everyone else has access to.
BE, mind control/transformation, torture/snuff, superheroine rape, alien/tentacle violation, underage, interracial, futanari… the dominant fetish changes over time but the shit tier content and its inevitable economic implosion from being reposted outside a paywall never does.

Is that what it is? I've been coming here for a while and I've wondered what's actually behind the comments written by some of the more resentful anons.

There's just this bitter, virginal, angsty anger present in this thread where if you ask even the humblest question, two or three people will always jump down your throat and try to shit on you like you're a retard for trying to learn something new. I just figured it was some form of overcompensation for not doing anything productive or creative with their lives. I mean, you hardly even ever see renders posted here at all. The "denizens" of this thread need to seriously calm down, and stop alienating the few people who even come here in the first place by acting like bitter, virginal faggots.

$30, and it would be overpriced at $10. Look at the promotional picture the developer chose to sell the product. These are puckers, not wrinkles, and they make the fabric look like deflated punch balloons.
>>
>>571388

I must of have got it on sale. I'm pretty sure I only paid $10.

The nice part is it will work with multiple gravity zones. So in a T-pose you can set each arm with it's own gravity pulling the fabric towards the hands and the torso with a gravity pulling the cloth towards the ground.

The reason it looks puckered there is because the mesh he's simulating on is too low poly.

I played around with it for awhile. It was okay if you used a high poly mesh and good if you were using it on posed figures wearing cloth made in MD (so you could get proper drapes if you don't have MD yourself).

Overall I still prefer just sculpting my cloth with 3D coat.

These are probably HD morphs for the muscles and bones. Iray's faster with HD morphs than with displacement maps.

Vendors who favor "signature" manikins for their clothing/hair products somehow have the worst fucking taste in character design as if this would make us more likely to purchase their work.

So Daz's brilliant idea is to let Studio languish woefully outdated and behind the curve and focus on Morph thinking they're going to make more money from video game developers.

So they think they can take on Autodesk and Adobe who have free rigged character generators (and Makehuman for people who want retarded looking characters) with Thier paid Morph app which is just Genesis figures rigged to be slightly more compatible with game engines.

Do they really think this is going to be their big money maker?

God I hope the company ends up being bought by someone competent.
>>
>>571826
No, DAZ's brilliant plan is to pretend Morph3D doesn't exist then let it die of starvation like all of their software that isn't Studio or Carrara.

As far as continuing to develop Studio is concerned, they have their userbase by the balls since they discourage vendors from selling new Poser-only compatible content and vendors are just as easily herded and milked. Their product costs nothing and comes with a renderer guaranteed to shit out good looking renders without the user knowing dick about materials or lighting.

They've taken Microsoft's approach that even if most people are pirating the content, it's cementing their lead over Poser. And they're following their own policy of ignoring feature requests from users which dates back to its introduction. So long as every piece of clothing out there autofits a figure they reckon they've done their job even if animation is terrible and dynamics are functionally nonexistent.

You are a customer of content designed never to leave one posing/rendering application and they know it. And as long as Iray continues to be easier to get results from than Superfly they'll keep pulling the strings even if the core application's weaker.

People are sheep. If Poser goes open source or free it still won't use Genesis 3 or 8 without ridiculous amounts of conversion, and even if there were an Iray to Superfly mat/light converter you're still hoping that Cycles can render at speeds comparable to a renderer written by a GPU vendor.

Smithmicro wants to unsaddle themselves from Poser because when you measure the maintenance needed to maintain the market to the profit point Poser is seriously under performing. Smithmicro is hoping they can find someone to buy the software from them and they can focus their resources on their 2D software which is much easier to maintain and is more profitable than Poser. The company has been hemorrhaging money and their stock has been tumbling drastically. There's also a fucking hate-on at Smithmicro for Daz and if they can't find a buyer to take Poser off their hands they're considering making it open source specifically because it will fuck Daz over big time as well as free up resources in the company so they can concentrate on their more profitable software.

Since January 2011 they've been in a free fall and they're pretty desperate and Poser just isn't looking like a winner for them.

>their more profitable software
They license all of their 2D software from a company that still owns it and could decide tomorrow to cut off the US market or go with another company.

SM's portfolio is plagued by their own idiocy and mismanagement then they decide its the acquisitions' fault.

I'll say it again: open-sourcing Poser would have some short term benefits for the software but overtaking DS without competitive content or import capability…

Holding, but holding in the shitter. Coincident that 2012 is when Daz made Daz Studio free.

No offense but let people who lived this history tell it.
At the time you're discussing, DS used a proprietary, encrypted format (.daz) which DAZ openly stated they'd enforce DMCA against any developer who reverse engineered it.
What they offered SM was a license to the format but it would not permit SM to document it. Poser's product manager Steve Cooper posted a statement that Poser would not support closed formats and to this day it still doesn't.
To put this in context, DAZ themselves took this bait with the dynamic cloth engine they licensed several years ago: they weren't permitted to document or even reverse engineer it and the result is they got screwed with only one vendor able to make dynamic clothing content (Optitex).
Also if SM had taken the bait they would have constantly been playing catch-up every time the spec changed and STILL been in the position of competing with freeware, effectively marketing DS for DAZ themselves.
>>
>>571999
I'm using DAZ to service my own means and I don't have any new renders to show because I'm using them for a top-secret project I'm working on. Sorry, don't expect any porn from me.
>>
In the end DAZ blinked first and not only retired .daz but adopted one of the most widely used text-based open data formats (JSON which made sense for an application whose native scripting language is JavaScript). They even picked the same bzip compression Poser uses. Had SM agreed to license their formats, imagine the shitstorm DRM would have brought.

Most people wouldn't be that secretive about porno comics, which is pretty much what's left once you factor out ero games and visual novels (animation even less likely). However, I'm pretty stupid so feel free to contradict me here.

FWIW DAZ has always put impossible upper bounds on eyeSlant and most people should stick to being subtle with it. The one time I've actually seen substantially slanted eyes was on a Hopi working the counter at McDonalds in Arizona, and I don't look at any less Jap porn than you do.

Can anyone recommend some V4 clothing packs?
Found a rather large lewd posepack on zonegfx.
>>
Is there a way to stop this piece of s...oftware from resetting figure scale when applying a pose? I have a hair with a braid that has 25 bones in it. Lock icons in posing tab don't do shit. Ctrl+doubleclick on pose file and disabling 'scale' checkboxes doesn't do shit either.
>>
>>572444
>Can anyone recommend some V4 clothing packs?
Outside of some bundles made by vendors, clothing and hair generally aren't posted as packs on the sites I visit; geometry compresses fine but textures don't. Expressions, poses, hands, morphs, cameras etc. compress really well and are far more likely to be packed. Even when Kat was a thing, clothing tended to be individual torrents and CGPeers is depressing.

If you have the patience to scour multiple sites like zonegfx, you can amass a large collection on your own piece by piece but as someone who did exactly this the time investment's not worth it. Buy shit and vendors will make more of it, even for V4 in $CURRENT_YEAR.

I'm going to assume you use Poser and not DAZ Studio because people who worry about figure-specific conforming clothing items aren't DS users.

3 pointers for following V4 clothing vendors:
1. Look for the ones who do undress morphs because they're working harder than anyone.
2. If you don't have Pro, S4 and Morphs++ support in clothing items are key unless you want all your characters to have the same height and body type. DAZ had an annoying habit of selling Morphs++ support separately as "for Unimesh." If you don't have Morphs++ and Stephanie 4, correct that.
3. The most talented clothing modelers are frequently the least interested in making good textures for their products, and you will most likely need a third party texture pack for them.
4. When you graduate to using dynamic clothing items, look for the ones rigged to have open/close movements where applicable.
>>
>>572455
Easy, lock the scaling.
>>
>>572457
Very informative, thanks. Guess I'm hitting my own dick with a hammer by using V4 in Daz. I have a few items that are dynamic and don't work in Daz. Guess it's time to learn Poser.

It would also help to know what type of clothing you are looking for. Like dresses, gowns, slutwear or period clothing as examples.

Many vendors stick with one type of clothing.

Unfortunately the realism of many V4 items is low since they were hand modeled rather than created in an app like marvelous designer.

Is there a way to manually brush/erase weight paints a la Outfit Studio?

Basically, the collar of this jacket rests closely to the shoulders, and when I rig it, the shoulder weights spill over onto the edges of the collar, leading to these abberations in pic related.

If I can't fix this problem by adjusting the bone weights directly I'm just going to cut the collar out in blender and rig it separately.

But if I could erase the shoulder weights from the collar I could fix this much more cleanly. Is that viable or is there some other fix?

Reread the sentence that came after the one you fixated on.
Hair is a material. Almost all its characteristics can be procedurally generated with the possible exception of alpha maps for the tips. Manually creating a stretched out brushed metal texture in Photoshop, dropping an adjustment layer on top to tint it and exporting a fuckhuge PNG file made sense in 2003, but so did burning speculars into the diffuse map. At this point, the only genuinely necessary map is the alpha map to define the contours of the plane tips.

They can't even fix their FBX/DAE import/export system. I doubt they have the talent necessary to add dynamics.

>>
>>573003
RDNA got bought out by DAZ but DAZ had to negotiate with the vendors to have content transferred and not everything did. She's a vendor at both DAZ and Rendo so you might contact her.
Your alternative is to hunt down all the warez sites only to discover ancient links to extinct filehosts, then eventually hit the one warez site that stuffed it inside a 4.7Gb archive that may or may not be split across several files.
Save yourself the trouble and contact LF via sitemail and beg nicely to pay her whatever it used to cost there if she'll sells it to you directly. She really ought to just put it back up on sale somewhere.

Not him but if you're going to stylize this heavily consider working from a toon base instead of the default human design and use a less photorealistic skin texture. You took a female and gave her every masculine feature you could think of short of a broken nose and cauliflower ears (probably because you can't do either with sliders).

I don't begrudge you your love of musclegirls who look like they just left Mother Russia, but there's a need for balance here and right now her eyes hate each other so much they're trying to shrink into the nearest ear.

Take every head slider and halve its value, then show a render. Yes, other character designers do the same thing.

I post whatever I feel like posting because most contributors on /3/ are in no position to critique it and offer the same meaningless bullshit like above, occasionally sprinkled with buzzwords I'm supposed to be upset by.

What you're posting is the kind of character who only appears in paywall porn, where grotesque exaggeration is not only expected but required. If you used Zbrush to make that physique then I guess you spent time well learning Zbrush, considering that kind of She-Freak stuff is already available for Genesis figures.

They don't have to look even good up close, most shots will be from 5m+ away at least.

Low poly hair or clay hair (solid objects without transmapping like those that shipped with Poser in 2000). Google can help you better than I here.
