but where is cowtits
>>606130I didnt have my render ready in time for the new thread. maybe next time.
>>606134You can still post it, senpai.
>>606134My original plan was to replace the desktop image of the laptop with a 4chan banned screen. Something was goofy with the emission settings. Also preview renders are mega slow. I imagine the textures for this scene are absurd in size.
>>606144I have a 980 but preview renders take a while to update when doing the realtime iray render. I feel like I just need a second GPU.
are there any good displacement maps for veins, hands, and other small details?
>>606157You seem to know a thing or two about it, so could you tell me why you'd want displacement maps over just normal maps? Just curious.
>>606158displacement maps for veins would make actual 3d veins, by raising the geometry. the detail gets better the higher the sub division. normal maps would also have the same amount of detail, but it would be flat, since it's just the 3d data in a 2d map. the reason i want displacement maps is so i can bake out my own normal maps.
>>606159That's really interesting. So what would happen if you just had a flat plane of 4 vertexes and a really detailed displacement map? Would it add subdivisions automatically where the detail would be?
>>606161no, it's not that sophisticated. if you wanted high amounts of detail in specific spots, you would have to add the geometry manually. the more subdivisions, the more detail you get.
>>606158Normal maps aren't very special. In fact they are most common.Displacement maps are slightly racist, but sometimes they are needed to make your 3d model purer and less plagued by parasitism.Both are useful in some situations.
>>606163I see, thanks. I'm still learning the ropes about all this stuff so your input is appreciated!
>>606165>Displacement maps are slightly racist>make your 3d model purer and less plagued by parasitismNIGGA WHAT??
>>606187Maybe normal maps have issues on darker characters?I guess parasitism could be cause by low res normal maps? I have no clue.
>>606187Displacement maps are racist because the blacks stand lower than the whites.Normal maps, on the other hand, are the opposite of ethnocentrism and xenophobia; they reach out in all directions.The pick between them is commonly said to be technical, but there is actually an ideology of the Self vs Otherness at play.t. Philosophy major dabbling in 3DCG.
>>606237That's not racist though, that's just natural.
>>606165>Displacement maps are slightly racist, but sometimes they are needed to make your 3d model purer and less plagued by parasitism.>>606237>Displacement maps are racist because the blacks stand lower than the whites.Is Tumblr raiding /3/ or something?That's plain retarded, stop making everything about race..
>>606237>t. Philosophy major dabbling in 3DCG.Feel free to leave your completely irrelevant doctrines aside and instead focus on studies that are actually relevant to 3DCG, faggot. Fucking gentiles, man.

>>606237Go die in a fire, please.
Honestly, why the HELL is the "cancel" button RIGHT NEXT to the "save" button on the finished render window? I only lost like 15 minutes of rendering a thing but still, it easily could happen on a longer render. Why would you put them in such close proximity to each other???? Stupid fucking devs.
>>606353I've lost many completed renders because of that. I'm so used to press cancel->save image, that I automatically click in that area before I realize that rendering is finished.
I loved 3DXArt's work, too bad he retired. Wish he would have dumped his custom assets.

>>606409autism for goofing "custom"
How bad is rigging inside of Daz compared to say Blender or Maya?Assuming I wanted to bring in my own character.
>>606447It's actually very good. It has a utility for quickly and easily rigging shit, and a simple interface for manipulating bone weights. Posing and adjusting bone weights is as simple as anything. Don't know enough about rigging in Blender or Maya to comment on that.
>>606165>Displacement maps are slightly racistget raped
Have you picked up Mummy 8 yet?
>>606542I'll wait until somebody uploads the Pro Bundle.
>>606652It need more brown people if that's supposed to be in Italy.
>>606655>>606652The buildings look German, though. People there are only slightly less black than in Italy, so the picture is not too inaccurate.

is there a way to export fbx to 3ds max without the materials being all fucked up? i keep getting black skin like there's no diffuse or anything on the model, but i can see the face texture and hair fine. what gives?
>>606699>i keep getting black skinSo where’s the problem, actually?
>>606699pic?Sounds like diffuse is exported with transparency.
>>606703>>606702nevermind, now i can't even get any textures showing.
Is this, dare I say... Renderkino?
Cleaning up my scene folder and found the old Vrigin vs Chad OP image from several threads ago. What's everyone working on?
>>606867A comic book. I finished up the cover the other day! The comic itself is far from done though.
>>606884Those breast skindentations
Why is it that most DAZ figures look horrible when bent over while in some games the butt and crotch area looks perfect?Does Daz fail at weightmapping?
>>606888Depends on the figure, past generations would get lots of addons to fix some of the bends. Specially when doing splits or something very flexible.If you mean in actual games that people have ported to. It's the fault of the porter. Daz bend shapes do not export with the figure normally. Most games you see with daz figures were a basic obj export and re-rig using another tool.If we are talking about UE engine they usually don't even bother creating their own skeleton and go with epic's mannequin and it's example animations.
What's the best way to import a prop.Say I've got a shotgun from Resident Evil. I can import and add the texures easily but how do I associate it with a figures right or left hand? I've tried parenting to a hand but things get weird when rotation is involved.
>>606909Weird how? I've never had any problems with that.
>>606911I'll rotate the characters arm and the weapon wont completely follow the same degree of turn, or it will sort of flip in another direction.
>>606918Thanks fambino. Hope you like the actual comic too.
Is Octane renderer worth it? Is it considerably better than iray?
>>606127These dudes don't even deserve my megalodong.
>>606704are you using lights?
>>606909import as obj. it's very easy
>>606867i'm trying to make Sarina Valentina but I'm having trouble.
>>606284Why not use the Vascularity Morphs?
>>607009Damn right you're having trouble.
>>607009thanks hungry burn victim skeleton
>>607007no i don't have lights. it's just the view-port camera pointed at the model.
>>607020ok first off: does it do the same thing in daz?second: did you import the skin textures and apply them?
>>607016>>607017ok i'll have to start from scratch then
>>607021no. no, because it's fbx. doesn't it do that shit normally?
>>607009face shape may be salvaged, but put that texture into trash
>>607064That face shape is pretty AYY LMAO.
>>607064>face shape may be salvagedHow the fuck do you figure? Are you face blind? This might be the worst DAZ model I've ever seen.
has any of you fucker ever tried to rig a model inside Daz Studio?It seems way more tedious than in other softwares I tried it
>>607110So that is who >>606273 was designed after
>>607113All the time. What's your process exactly? Do you use the Transfer Utility? Because don't even bother with the Figure Setup utility for basic clothes. It's unnecessarily complicated for literally the exact same results as the Transfer Utility.
>>607118well actually I tried to rig a whole bipedal character I made from scratch, so starting with one bone and going from there.I think it really sucks that you can't just import fully rigged characters you rigged somewhere else into Studio.
>>607120Well in that case you will want to look into the Figure Utility. That's what it's made for.
>>607123On any of the sites yet?
>>607147what happened to his fingers and neck?
>>607148removed limits on the fatso slider
>>607148Here it is with limits.
Looks like Daz Studio 4.10 works under Wine 3.0. Most programs like the SQL stuff and actual studio will not install through the install manager but most content will.I installed daz studio manually and ignored the other basics it comes with. Added libraries from my windows drive and was able to load things up without issue. x64 and iRay is supported but Daz studio only sees CPU and not GPU.
>>607188I'm using Studio with Wine for a year now. iRay works pretty much perfectly and with both of my GPUs running it. Don't remember exactly which but had to install some libraries and it works fine.Didn't update to Wine 3 yet but yeah, everything works but only sliders without limits lose "grip" when you pull them with the mouse and you either have to type in the values or "nudge" the slider over and over until you reach your value. Sliders that have limits will stick to the mouse pointer and you can pull them as you please. I hope this is finally fixed in Wine 3 or soon, will give it a try.
>>607240Oh and I don't use the faggy SQL shitbase anyways.Runtime and browser, that's it.
>>607188is there not a huge performance hitIray with CPU only is a nightmare
Are you ready for Aiko 8?
>>607330why are the pearls so shit?
>>607330There was never an Aiko version that actually looked good.Mixing 3D realism and anime is DISGUSTING.
>>607277Performance appears to be the same. Loading the scene initially, I think took a bit longer.I need to find out how to get iRay going with GPU. plz halp, other anon >>607240
>>607334>why is everything so shit?Fixed that for you.
>>607339just an idea, do you have the prop. nvidia drivers installed? CUDA doesn't work with the free drivers
>>607352Yeah, cuda rendering works fine in blender. It's probably like you said, something to do with wine DLLS I'll reboot and check winetricks.
>>607330Somehow, it get's worse with every new version of Aiko. Just look at it. Look at it!
>>607240Using any overrides in winecfg?
>>607358actually quite a few
>>607359to clarify, some of them I need for other programs (especially the DX11 which of course wouldn't be needed for Studio) so this one is not exclusively for Studio but everything works fine
>>607360Well, I tried a few combos. Nothing changed. Maybe I'll just use my laptop's Daz install/library and export scenes to be rendered on the main machine in blender. Too bad fixing all the material shaders is always a pain in the ass. We need a blender plugin that allows it to read Daz user libraries.
I found archives of some of the old threads. Even if /3/ doesn't archive them, they appear to get archived on random chan clone sites.

>>607516Right, today is the last day for the sale too. I picked a few of the chars up last night.
>>607524Who in their right mind pays for this shit? What do you use it for?

This is an actual promo image used for a new product on the official page. Say something nice about it.
>>607810Balls aren't touching.
>>607810Something Nice huh?The Shiny Balloon Man on the left side, who is slightly hovering off the ground, is not in severe pain due to being tapped by the end of a fully extended punch nor from a completely whiffed flying kung fu knee delivered by the Shiny Kung Fu Action Man on the right who's panties are not poking through as it would appear at first glance but just has shitty specular settings. No, he is in pain because his left hand has Philadelphia Experimented into Shiny Kung Fu Action Man's abdominal cavity. This is ok however since shiny Kung Fu action man will soon land on that giant ham hock that might actually be a leg on closer inspection, popping it like a chicken bone since he inexplicably decided to skip like a schoolgirl before attacking. Shiny Balloon man wins.
>>607810I like how the background is one of the default curved canvases with a stone texture slapped on it with nothing more than the diffuse.This should be inspiration that anyone can get their garbage on to this site and make a few shekels.

What do you use your waifu posing software for /dazg/?Waifu posing? Porno? Cinematic fights? For 3d human modeling in a professional environment?

I like where this is going.
>>608639Why do DAZ renders always look like hot garbage 99% of the time? It's like nobody puts any effort into the lighting.
>>608640Exactly that. Lighting is HUGE. Most of the reason I dont post my own stuff often. Even slapping on a good HDRi wont do it. I bet headlamps are left on for most of the renders too.
>>608641That's no excuse for putting literally zero effort into it.
>>608642I feel a lot of users, myself included dont have a firm grasp on how important lighting is. I've reading up on 3PL but have a ways to go.
>>608643How hard is it to pose him actually holding the sword properly? Why do people waste their time making this shit and then don't even bother trying to make it look half decent??
>>608641>>608642Would changing environment items to actually emit light (bulbs etc) make a difference or should people add other lights on top of that?
This is a poser Elf. Say something nice about her.
>>608661There's no one-size-fits-all answer to what works and what doesn't. It depends on the environment, the composition as a whole, and the aesthetics you're going for. If you're lighting an indoor setpiece then yes it would be useful to make the lightbulbs emissive, I don't see many other ways you could do it. But as for what's going to look best for the final render? That's based on adjustments you're going to have to make yourself during the process, in order to get the best visual quality. And the only way to get better is to experiment.
>>608666Gotcha, so the same way to get to Carnegie hall.
>>608663Her right boob looks weird.
>>608592Nice fat mons :3 What more can a man ask for?
>>608678Two fat monses!
>>608644this, and if their references are the majority of poorly lit images then thats how they base their owni talked ot one guy in the 3dx discord and he assumed people who have decent lighting render everything in maya or someshit with supercomputers
>>608703You need to work on putting actual detail on your clothes instead of just texture maps. Rendering a high poly figure with low poly clothes just looks bad.

>>608727Yes you can import fbx, but you'll lose the rigging because Daz hasn't fixed its fbx import bug.
to the other linux dudes:I just found out that any Wine after 2.21 staging does kill the CUDA support in Studio for whatever reason.I was hyped to update, went to 3.2 and lost CUDA, then tried any version before and nothing.2.21 staging is the last version supporting it.

New to this shit, do you fucks generally use gen3 female?Seems to be the one with the most options/store items
>using high resolution figures and skin textures>using shitty low poly clothing models ripped from gamesFor fuck's sake man, you're already okay with stealing people's intellectual property to make you ugly sameface lesbian wank pics, just go all the way and pirate Marvelous Designer and make proper high poly clothes to go with the figures. What you're doing now is making a triple chocolate fudge cake and then using some dog turds you scrapped off the neighbours lawn as icing.
>>609331if you are just starting use gen8you can use gen3 skins, morphs, poses, clothes, hairs, layered images with gen8 if you have right products/scripts
>>608516>>608358>>608796What skins did you use?
>>608844think you could've improved the posing, but in general I like it.

>>608640>It's like nobody puts any effort into the lighting.They don't
>>608661Emissive surfaces are the bread and butter of indoor environment. I use them extensively and often uniquely. They work quite well."Perfect" lighting is often done by hand in function of your camera. It's all fake as fuck, but for perfect aesthetics it's the only way.

I don't think I've seen a single render in these threads that isn't complete irredeemable trash.
>>610222Post some that you like then
>>610222>>610241>irredeemable trash.post some useful criticism and the content might actually improve, dumb faggot
tits are the most important part to get rightprove me wrong
>>610345Half the shit posted here isn't even OP you dumb fuck. But you want constructive critisism? Fine.Character designs are always basic, uninspired pieces of shit that rely to heavily on presets or where the person is just simply utilizing some vendor's creative vision instead of fulfilling his own. The faces are always the worst part of this; with no attempt made by the creator to produce a unique visage, and facial expressions always look terrible, with no emphasis put on trying to emulate how the face actually moves during expressions, but just slapping a few sliders on there and predictably producing an uncanny, shitty result. No respect for anatomy or proportion; bodies are often times deformed with balloon tits, impossible waists for no other reason than the creator is a mental midget. Embarrassing to look at.Compositions are always poorly structured; no emphasis on good camera placement, flow, focus or creating something that looks creative and fun. Poses are almost 100% of the time off in some way; no real emphasis in trying to emulate realistic human emotion/movement/body language or conveying character and personality through the aforementioned elements. Too much reliance on preset poses.Environments are almost unanimously 100% of the time trash shat out by some vendor with 2005-tier visual quality, but worst of all has no creative input from the person who's creating the renders, so no actual creative tie to the render that's being produced. Pathetic.There's your critique, faggot. Now you have no excuse to make low-effort garbage anymore.>>610354No, the face is; generally. But it's a combination of elements that are going to make a character design work; whatever you can do to convey personality and unique characteristics through a person's visage. That includes all the shallow elements one can see; face, body, skin, colors, and attire. All elements are essential, but the face is generally most important.
>>610354unless you use some hideous presets from renderotica they are virtually impossible to get wrong
What kind of jobs could I get by learning DAZ?
>>610357I will continue to make low effort renders, just to spite you.

>>610822mouth gape on point
Okay i've had Daz laying around my computer for a couple months now and all i know how to do is pose it and render the image and some minor exporting.But all I've been using is the Genesis3 models that came with it as a default. I downloaded some morphs for it because i was fucking tired of the shitty default morphs but i can't get them to work and i don't know how to actually put them inside Daz. I put them in the folder along with the other default morphs but that didn't do anything.Also i have no idea what the fuck is a victoria 7 or any of the other stuff you need to be able to edit the model or whatever. I just want to have a 3D model that I can customize the proportions and body type and pose. I DONT EVEN FUCKING CARE ABOUT HAIR OR COSTUMES OR ANY OF THAT. would appriciate any sort of advice.
>>611041SHEEEEEEIIIIIIIIIIITBase models are called genesis. Very little morphs are available. Need to buy/DL morph packs for that character to customize it. There are also preset custom characters they sell for G# characters. Which may also sometimes be a requirement for future things.Best bet for just starting out is to get all the Genesist 3 (G3) content you can AND the Genesis 8(G8) content. Bare with us. There was a naming change. Genesis jumped from 3-8.
>>611041just stay away from 3D when even DAZ is too hard for you
>>608516 >>608358 >>608796If you're the dykeposter and you sculpted this face, you've improved.Get a tumblr. You're making stuff I don't get ill looking at now and it's a great way to track your progress.
>>610549 >>611142I get that you're making an older woman here but please don't use expression sliders to craft character faces, it's obvious to everyone. The nasiolabial fold along with the raised nostril wings doesn't work as a relaxed expression and contradicts what the eyes and mouth are doing.>>611142 >>609337Likewise tone down the thickness on Sahel's nostril wings. She already has enough youthful facial indicators without giving her a 4 year old's nose. Also use different skin textures for each, that left thigh blemish draws attention to itself. She has a cute face.
>>608455>>Tons of premade characters now available in fbxwhere?
>>611041Dude. Duuude.All your content is in the "My Daz Library" folder. It's a flat directory with subdirectories for Peoples, Props, etc. When you download XTreme Inflation 6 from a shady russian website, you will usually get a .zip containing the various (People, Props, etc) folders. Merge them into "My Daz Library". It's not rocket science. The Zip contains a "People" folder. The "My Daz Library" folder contains a "People" folder. Put the content of one into the other. You don't need an IQ of 70000 to grasp the idea.Genesis 3 is the name of the generic Daz female model, while Victoria 7 is the specific Daz female model sold other Genesis 3. As one is based on the other, and they're both sold by the same company, they are often used interchangeably. Most of the things that are compatible with one are compatible with the other. Victoria 7 is just Genesis 3 with a good texture and some decent morphs.Daz also sells a teenager female model and also a little girl and also a musclegirl. Every time it's just Genesis 3 with some textures and decent morphs.Genesis 8 is the name of the new Genesis, which is just Genesis 3 all over again but they changed the default pose and sold it like it's new. It comes with Victoria 8, little girl 8, musclegirl 8, etc. Well, it doesn't technically come with that shit, you need to buy it again.
>>611204>Daz also sells a teenager female model and also a little girlwhaat?? do you think there are persons that make cp with these figures? this is outrageous
>>611216I have no doubt stuff like Cayley and Grace G8F are used for porn, hell they ship with textured nipples, and applying genitalia to them isn't hard at all.
>>611225funny there was a discussion here in germany once about how old are virtual figures ? Hold old are pixels or polygons ? are polygons created newly every time you load up a character ? They settled then for the apparent age of the character and that is illegal to draw sex comics with apparently underage persons
>>611231>illegal to draw sex comics with apparently underage personswhat if they're being raped by immigrants as is their right
>>611231what if it's based on a real person who looks very young and has agreed to be depicted?
>>611241what a silly question. if they are underage it's still ilegal. You have to be 18 to make law binding contracts of any kind, stupid.
>>611241so what porn if full of gals who are 20 and look like 14
>>611248Obviously they would be of legal age you unstoppable moron. That's the whole point. An 18 year of who looks 14 wants to be depicted in 3D porn. It would somehow be illegal depict a girl who looks younger than 18 despite the fact that they can legally do real porn.
>>611238If artist is still a whitey though its both kiddy porn and hate speech
dforce brainlet here, how do I fix the clothing clinging to her body? I want more sideboob.I've moved the front away from her body before simulation but it doesnt appear to make a difference.
I tried Daz to make some characters. Some turn out better than others
>>611309I just realized this looks quite bad. Mostly, it's some things still missing from the face texture. The real Shakira has different styled eyebrows and bags under her eyes.To do those things, I'd need to open up the texture in PS and add them in, and i couldn't be assed. Oh well, here's another render
Don't even ask!
>>611331I like it!
>>611331Once again we see high resolution figures ruined with shitty low poly clothes and props.Just fucking pirate MD and do it right.
>>611331How the fuck are her hands supposed to be tied? Jeeze do you half-ass everything you make?
>>611331Somebody has no idea how much firearms actually weigh.
Deine fotze, jude!
Cleaned it up a little. Can't delete the other post because it's too old, sorry.
>>611664looks like Nazisploitation is back on the menu boys!
i just started learning DAZ Studio but i still don't know which models for female and male i should get. which one do you guys think has the most freebies?
>>611699None.Buy a morph pack and make your own characters.Also, I'm pretty sure there's an addon to generate skin textures as well.Don't buy overpriced shitty presets
>>611677hey you gave me an ideais there a camp addon for DAZ somewhere?
thoughts on aiko8?
Revised! Now it looks good.
>>611712downloading r8 nowLooks like just about the right amount of stylization for my taste, Sakura 8 was full reatrd mode
I'll stop now. This one took a lot of iterations.
>>611756is that Antje Traue with the bazooka?
Introducing Aiko 9Way less AYYLMAO
>>607123>>607540Any of y'all know what hair styles these are? Both look bueno
>>611803Whoops, meant 8. Also didnt see >>611712
I think I might be a retard, but... why do I find it so difficult to pose people? I find problems specially with arms.Say I want the character to grab something in front of him in a non robotic way... if I visually pull the limb, the whole body contorts. If I try to get it through sliders, it feels impossible. I have to change so many joints, from the shoulder to the wrist, and in the end the limb is still far from where I want it, but it won't go further. So I visually pull the limb... and the whole body contorts.What am I doing wrong? Why do I find arms so much more difficult than, say, legs, which just get in place so easily?
>>612131DAZ just has an incredibly bad posing system and IK rig. Don't use sliders, and only drag joints to make small adjustments. Use the rotate gizmo for large adjustments instead. It's super finnicky but given enough practice you can get used to it. I really wish the posing was more like TK17 though.
>>612131Also, turning off limits can sometimes help. Select a joint and look in the parameters tab and go into settings on one of the axises, then turn off limits. You'll now be able to move the joint freely.
>do tons of post work>still doesn't make up for using some default face expression.
Just saw this, reminded me of someone.
>>612362heh, was just catching up on some HxH and this guy shows up
Brazilian paramilitary waifu!
>>612363what skin is this?
>>612470I made it myself (including the Iray settings) but it started out originally as a modification of the Toon Generations 2 skin.
>>612451You're the same guy who posted Christopher Reeve stuff around half a year ago? You've improved a lot, man.
>>612451link to the clothes on the DazStore pr3tt1 plz?
>>611712I really don't like her, the promotion pics are awful, but I bet there will be a lot of good characters based on here coming out eventually (just like w previous Aiko's)
>>612516Thanks. I sure hope so.>>612616Sorry bud, but it's comprised of ripped game assets from GTA V & Rainbow Six Siege, and the gun is from Sketchfab.
>>612639You have man, I love seeing your new stuff.
>>612640Thanks man. It feels a bit shitty to use other people's IP to make my character designs but it's the only way I can throw them together relatively quickly before I lose interest in the design.It's something to work on, and eventually I would like to make characters entirely from self-made assets. I'm glad you like them though.
>>612641Thats how plenty of people start. You're great famalam
>>612642I appreciate you saying so, friend.
>>612651I was one of your harshest critics here and while you've got a ways to go, you've REALLY improved if these new characters are still sculpts. Please start thinking about an online portfolio or blog. Seriously, I came down hard on you but you didn't give up and these characters look a lot more human and a lot less like roided drag queens now. Do you have a discord username?
>>612651Could you go through like just briefly what you've learned in the past couple of months? Like your process for putting together the above character? Skin, lighting... everything looks so good
Also what's the verdict on dForce btw? I've been out of the loop. Is it good? Hard to use?
Where can I find an Emma Stone preset?
>>612719>frogI see what you did there.
>>612721meant for you >>612720
>>612680I appreciate the candor, and I will look into getting a blog, definitely. No discord, sorry. I don't really get down with that. I'm bad at marketing myself. Thank you for the kind words.>>612691I dunno my dude, it doesn't feel like I've changed. I've just sort of been doing whatever I wanted, and as I've gotten more integrated with the software I've gradually learned to streamline my process and produce results more indicative of what the original idea or vision was supposed to be. That said I don't deserve any of the real credit. I rip game assets, and use and modify skin presets and morphs other people made. The only real work I do is conversion, rigging and sculpting in Zbrush. The environments I make in Sketchup are likewise made from ripped game textures often times, and if I use substance painter, I use materials made by other people. I honestly do very little of the actual work. But it's fun, and I want to become more independent with time. Glad you like it.
Also, ordnance expert!
hey is 'the Zone' down ? Is this DAZ's lawyers or just an accident ?
What is your favorite HUGETITS slider? I like guhzcoituz myself.
New asset purchased today. Default textures render the eyes transparent somehow. Anyone know how to fix this? Or is this a goof on the content creator's part that will need to be patched.
>>612908How do you not know basic material editing?
>>612910Maybe I presented it wrong but no matter the texture I use that came with this character, it shows up transparent when rendered in iray.
>>612913You've checked the translucency and opacity parameters and everything look okay? If it's really the diffuse map it might be some issue pertaining to .tga or .dds file formats, I've had transparency problems myself with those two. Converting the diffuse to .jpg or .png should fix it in that case.
Well, this is really odd. Loaded the character into a scene without that weird problem. Relaunched a new default scene and was unable to reproduce the eye transparency.
>>612719just use facegen
>>611331As always your work is shit-tier.
>>611725Nope, still looks shit.
>>609028so best of 2 worlds
seriously people like dforce? is it good? hard to use?
>>613109It looks cool but I'm a dforce tard.Whenever I try it it usually blows up. maybe im not supposed to apply presets twice.
First proper official toon for G8. I think mine >>612363 looks better though!
>>613118you've become obsessed with 3DUniverse ever since I accused you of using their characters
>>613122you have an interesting definition of "obsessed".
Security systems specialist!
>>613118https://www.daz3d.com/paige-and-pace-mega-bundleJust bought it. I miss the aging morphs from TG2, but it's nice the body and head are two separate morphs this time.
>>613130Great workshirt, where is that from?
Are there any rules of thumbs for bare minimums for hardware and scenes?I've got a 980 with 4GB of video memory but whenever I add a second character to a basic HDR lit scene, the render time tanks hard.I assume its the needless 4k textures on lots of things.
>>613234Seems it didn't help that I was doing all my rendering at 4k. 1080 drastically improved the time. Also picked up the scene optimizer addon.
>tfw you accidentally render from viewport. At least I caught it in time. Time to do something about the bra fitting. I guess the easiest way is zbrush morph import for it?
What are some good landscape environments for a pinup girl and a car?
>>613269Yea 4k is a hell of a lot more effort than 1080p. 4GB should be ok for a lot of renders, also remember some figures are subdivided by 2, you can bring that down to 1 to free up a lot of VRAM.
>>613281Blender cloth simulation. Either that or Marvelous Designer and make your own clothing.
>>613281Yes, Zbrush morphing is the easiest way to fix that. Disregard the other anon, he clearly has little experience.
>>613399Like this guy did?Any good crash courses to the tools or hotkeys used to do this? I imagine the import/export is pretty self explanitory.
>>613464Yeah that's my webm. It's just:>ctrl + m1 to mask >ctrl + click anywhere in document to invert mask>W for move gizmo>R for rotate gizmo>Standard brush>Move brush>Display properties -> Flip faces for see-throughWith symmetry (Transform -> Activate Symmetry), of course. GoZ to bridge between Zbrush and DAZ. It will take you a little experimentation but you'll get the hang of it quickly. It's just basic mesh manipulation.
>>613468It's all good my man
Also, to that linuxbro. I got it working under 2.2.1-staging without any issue finally. Thanks!
how should I go about fixing her
>>613504make nose less piglike
>>612363I need to fix the eyelashes when the eyes are closed on this morph. MCM or whatever it's called. When I did the morph for the eyes, for whatever reason I can't remember, the eyelashes didn't follow along. Should I redo the corrective closed eyelid morph? Or should I do a separate MCM for the eyelashes?
>>613519The model is G8F, by the way.
>>612451dude! that is really nice! good job
>>612451that's the first time i saved a piece on here
Looking for feedback on this and other models. I've posted some trash on here ages ago and feel better about my skill now.
>>613704oh shit i meant to start a thread!
>>613705please not with that.
>>613708>>613704it's that bad?
>>613709Looks like some random Dungeon monster girl
Who's gonna make the new thread?
