>>643337Any anons know what hair this is?
That's one sultry tribadist!
>>643436Noice scene. Is she thinking of battle?
>>643436That's some comfy lighting. How much of it is postwork?
>>643440Sure!>>643445The setpiece has very little post-processing, but the characters are all on separate render passes, which have then been blended into the base render. Glad you like the way the lighting turned out. You can see here in the before and after just how stylized it is, but in my eyes I think it works, just to give it a little bit of a romantic feel.
>>643337just when you thought you couldn't polish a turd.
Daz is soo fkn complicated, needs to be simplified.
My various user libraries are too damn large. Besides uninstalling selected things via install manager, what's the least painful way to selectively uninstall things from a user library that were not installed via install manager? (Renderosity, Renderotic, freebies, etc items.)
>>643703I'm pretty new to DAZ, but it's my understanding that that kind of content must be uninstalled manually, going through the list of files that usually comes in the attached readme file.There's this tool, though, that arguably would help managing content from places aside DAZ Store: https://www.daz3d.com/content-package-assistThe downside is that apparently cannot work on already installed content. Haven't tested it yet though, so hopefully I'm wrong. I'm just relaying what I read elsewhere, trying to come with a solution for managing a mess of a library.
>>643704Yeah, something like another DB that keeps track of modified files. Oh well, 100% it's absurd textures taking up so much space. Time to get digging.Maybe daz should use some "compressed but not really" format. That way you could just throw HugeFutaDickV8.Daz into your user library folder. Inside it can be the usual folder structure. Kind of how video games of old had .wad, .pak, .pk3, etc.
>>643703buy a 4tb external for it or something
>>643756I have an 8TB I'm using for long term storage but its USB3. Never considered doing live/constant read/write to it.
>>643703what hair is that?
>>643778Soon, Daz3D will be nothing but an asset store. But that's their core business, so... no problem, I guess?
>>643775Nina Hair for GF3/8>>643785Not holding my breath on that just yet. Tried the reallusion suite about six months ago. Their own assets are not worth diddly, interface is nearly as obtuse as Daz. With all these hype videos people have been shilling, I may pirate it again in a few months to see how things have progressed.
I do most of my final renders via viewport preview, since it's faster for me, but sometimes it just breaks and renders a blurry image.Any reason for this?
>>643799Viewport renders only render for 2hrs max
>>643083More work on the shading of the eyes.
>>643447Yo, can you post more of her? Maybe an unlit scene? Great character.
>>643850Now, the skin.
>>643950Took a different approach for the skin; less accurate, but much faster to render.
Can't believe 3dzone is fucking dead
Kinda like how nice the Warcraft models render in Iray. I might just have to start rigging and making clothes for them.
Has anyone used Facegen with Victoria4?
>>644154I don't believe FG is rigged for non-Genesis figures.
Peeps, is there some proper documentation for DAZ? Like a manual describing techniques, with a reference section, etc., that kind of thing? I know about the Documentation Center (http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/start), but honestly it feels like an incomplete community effort. What am I missing?
>>644178It's really trial, error or getting answers from community sites or discord. Most appear to be pretty empty but 3DX discord is very active. >through dick, unity
>>644131When you look at the models it's funny that only the Belfs and Nightbourne elves have detail painted on the female nude crotch textures. Some Dev at Blizzard really likes spanking it to elves.
>>644271Void elves do too.
>>644271Link, please? For research, of course.
>>644117Got pose and basic prop import working.
>"buy" Marie Rose hair and morph>morph is shit, disregard>hair is surprisingly good, lots of bones and decent texture>fit to current fapfu character, it *really* suits her>donaldduckboner.png>decide to make some 2Mv1f wrestle ryona rape shit>really want to set it on a beach>no simple beach stage environments availableWhy does every DAZ beach environment made have to be a giant fucking island with forestry and rivers and shit?
>>644377lots of beach hdri's
>Hann Mei is a very close friend to me, who is living and working in Hong Kong. We graduated from the same university, but later we walked along different paths. She always dreams to be an actress, but the reality is what she must accept.>Now Hann Mei is doing her best to be a great mother of 2 kids and I am trying to be a better me. Okay... what have I just read?
>>644377I gotchu senpai
>>644288>"Can I please not have cancer any more?"
>>644453>Hann has fallen on hard times but to support her two children she is not above whatever degrading scenes you cast her in. Imagine Party officials holding her sons in police custody as she allows Triad members to use her body as a human toilet, or Mei as a rising pop star trying desperately to forget the organs black market she sold her mentally disabled twin sister to, or lonely fall nights where her boys have tied her to the bedposts, staining silk sheets as they use her unwilling flesh to become men.
>>644453He's trying to be a better version of himself, Anon, cut him some slack.
>>644457Fucking saved buddy.Anyway. I don't come to these threads with so many requests expecting anyone to go hunt them down. I post requests hoping that somebody along the way has come across something I'm looking for and shares that info with me...anyone know the hair used on left of pic and if hair on right of pic (my waifu) exists for daz/poser.
I want to share scene folders between my desktop and my laptop so I can pose shit while away from main render machine.What's the best way to keep the files synced? Google Drive?
>>644472If you have all the content you need on your laptop, Google Drive or similar should work, if you are careful not to unexpectedly overwrite files -- which tends to happen with live-synced cloud storage.If the plan does not involve installing all content also on your laptop, you'll need to have it in a path accessible over the network. This is what I do, I install everything (directly and through the DAZ Install Manager) to a remote folder, and also save scenes there, so everything is available everywhere. Since DAZ doesn't care too much about actual paths, but finds content based on unique identifiers, this is quite simple to set up. Pic related, it's how I set the paths in the Content Directory Manager.
>>644507I've got everything installed on both. I save frequent and usually multiple copies or versions
>>643447the left lighting makes her look like a granny tho
>>643664this is the one doll software that even manages to outjew DAZ
>>644277Wow model viewer. Let's you rip most character and monster models from wow or just view them.
Orc commission! I'm not gay.https://i.imgur.com/9voEeSb.jpg
>>644627That's one dirty donger.
>>644631You know what they say. Once you go green, you'll need a new spleen.
>>644541Zone is down too. Also another big VG site. Don't believe its all an accident within a few days
All download sites are down. The end has come.
>>644635zone is up you absolute donker
>>644641Start paying for what you use, thief.
>>644642It wasn't up for a few hours.
>>644645Just like my dick. But now that I've come home from work, it's time to fire up DAZ and fix that.
>>644665My wife is out there with some guy I don't even know. What else am I supposed to do?
>>644670Well, I would suggest that you commit suicide.
is zonegfx legit? worth sending them the gift card for reg? how does it compare to the now-dead dazposer?
>>644739>sending them the gift card for reghuh? I don't remember anything like this when I registerd a year ago or so but then my memory is like crap.Anyway besides from the crappy point system their links work most of the time and are not on slow ass hosters like rapidgator or premium-only novafile.
>>644761Not him, but I tried to register and yea, it seems they ask for some $5 crap DAZ gift card.
Fuck what happened to dazposer.net?Where am I supposed to pirate daz stuff now. gfxstuff doesn't have as much
>>644541What is the url exactly?
>>644817nvmAnd they want 5$ gift cardRIP DazI don't know why there was never a revival of daz torrents after kickass died, for shame.
>>644818Relax, people on other file shareing sites like load and gfxstuff made accounts in advance just for suck an occasion. Most stuff on zone are on the other sites, the new content is just a measure of waiting.
>>644816its up again under a differen URL
>>644884Give a hint, please.
>>644460kek. Now, eyebrows. The first step towards recovery.
>>644887Seconding this. Please tell
>>644887>>644928just google http://dazposer.net
>>644928>>644887topgfx and zone are back who tf cares>>644929lmoa its down already
>>644956>lmoa its down alreadyIt's a different URL, retard
You're out stroll around the neighborhood taking pictures of women undressing for 'reference material' and suddenly notice this coming down the sidewalk towards you. What do you do?
>>645008Slap myself on the face. Hopefully this is a nightmare and that'll get me out of it.
I wonder if he makes porn. I'd really like to see it.
>>644917Touched up the skin and eyes shaders, and switched the skin maps to Gia 8's. Improved the eyebrows slightly, too.
>>645008Dat shota bulge.
>>645020It looks good on a thumbnail, the seem natural, but the complete lack of small and mediun skin details kills it when the fullres image is opened
>>645020What the fuck made you think those huge chipmunk cheeks look good?
>>645008Set the bar to 50%, there perfect proportions cartoon shota
>>645267Don't forget Laudanum's Xtreme Penetration Morph's 100%.
>>645267Yep was about to say this, 50% looks the best. Would suck dick and lick feet.
>>645281>I goggled it>a place called renderoticaDear god MY EYESMY EYEEEEeesss...
>Christmas soon you say?OP should have went with Halloween pumpkin tits . Last two images have been meh.
>>645079Thanks. I have only the displacement map to add detail, so I increased its strength a touch. I think it looks better now, but there's only so much that can be done without a proper sculpt.>>645250kek, to be honest, I'm uncertain about them.I'm now working on the eyelashes. They need quite a bit of polish still.
Am I kawaii desu /3/?
>>645443What Toon shader are you using?
>>645449That's not chibi, that's just a cartoon boy in an inappropriate outfit and with gooey-looking hair.
>>645449What Toon shader are you using?
>>645440Some more work on the eyelashes.
>>645490Visual Styles Manga Shaders.
>>645471You fucking Hail Chibi Caesar, Centurion or you're going to be crucified.
>>645536You didn't get the hint the last time did you Elagabalus
>>645528Needs bigger eyelashes I think.
>We need a promo model for this hair>>I got you senpai
>>645856I am not Bingo!
https://www.daz3d.com/anime-starter-bundleHey hey hey /3/, have some free stuff! Probably just today but what the hell, why not.
Oh hey is this mable's voice actress what's her name?
>>646038too much chin but I feel you
>>646039She has 0 fucking chin faggit
>>646040No I mean Mabel's VA has 0 chin, this character has more chin
>>645856the god himself!
The ride never ends.
>>646228DAZ artists work in mysterious ways, like someone watched fargo season 2 and said "that indian guy, I have to make him into a daz figure right now, that's what the store is missing!" brilliant
>>646228that in no way resembles bourdain, where did you find the pic before slapping Anthony on it
>>645856that's the Kim Basinger "Goldie" hair SAV made, rightYou're still using V4? Intrigued as to how you made the lip morph.
>>646230>someonePhoenix1966 specializes in celeb likenesses. I've never watched Fargo but I recognized this guy from Westworld right off the bat. You can probably recognize these ones from his Rendo store.
>>646236That's the hair.Still using V4! The morph is made with the morph tool in Poser by hand, just pulled and finessed into shape. Kind of like zbrush for kids I guess.
>>646243Glad I'm not the only one still using good ol' V4. Thanks fuck I can zbrush out her dated old joint bends though.
>>646251>Thanks fuck I can zbrush out her dated old joint bends though.google sasha16, it's a completely weightmapped rebuild of V4 that's leagues ahead of the last weightmap V4. Mainly useful for nudes.
>>645536Hail Chibi Caesar!
>>646255Looks a little like Brittney White.
>>646243What in the actual fuck is that.
>>646243>it's actually the man himselfDon't know if I'm supposed to feel honour or disgust. I do have a question though, Mr. Gif Author, do you actually get turned on by your content or do you just make it just because of the shock factor?
>>646251I have Sasha and have started using that for new characters but unfortunately all my existing characters are on V4 so they all have exploding asses and elbows I have to either fix or ignore. I've tried Perfect but injecting them didn't work and I'm a simpleton.>>646309Disgust is normal.No I don't make anything to shock, it's all variations of themes made for me. I didn't used to share everything but after the early ones got """popular""" people wanted more. So they got more, and I think most people regretted wanting more.The strangest thing to me isn't the strange stuff I make, it's people who click on my stuff and then get angry enough to post about it or downvote or whatever. Why even click it? I guess it's this society of outrage we've cultivated where outrage is currency used to gain moral high ground, so everyone vying to be the most upset by everything.Whoops, slipped into a blog post there!>>646308It's an obscenely bimbo-ized hag.
>>646336I've had some good fun working with Project Evolution but I have so much morph and character content for V4 it's ridiculous.
>>646336You should be able to do whatever you want, but can't you see how god damn awful that looks?I get that your thing is exaggerated proportions, but even then, things have to be scaled proportionately, no? The tits look like helium balloons, do you actually think that's a good look? And the plastic skin, is that intentional? Why does she have sausage link fingers?You can't just blow up the lips like that and leave the other facial features practically untouched. It looks absurd. I don't think you realize how bad you are at fulfilling your artistic vision. You should be trying to make your characters look more like caricatures. As it is, they look like abominations.
>>646354There's another one.
>>646355Can't handle criticism. Got it.I'm almost fixing to create a hyper-bimboized character now just to show you how it's done.
>>646357I don't think that "how god damn awful that looks" and "you actually think that's a good look?" and "sausage link fingers" and "it looks absurd" and "how bad you are at fulfilling your artistic vision" (when it's my vision lol) is criticism anon. You can put a label on what it really is.I don't appreciate the disingenuous straw man argument either, as though I'm upset at your post or won't accept criticism. I'd love some criticism, as long as it's not more disguised opinions like the last post. And I'd love to see more hyper bimbos! Get get here in the muck with me.
>>646354>stop liking what i dont like: the post
>>646359You're getting defensive though and showing you can't back up your artistic vision at all because if there's the slightest hint that I dislike your work you'll just dismiss the input entirely. That shows you're not confident in your work and you probably know it.I think you're probably better than this but you're honestly delusional about your own abilities. I know because I can look at some of my own designs that I created a year ago, and I can see dozens of faults now where I couldn't see any at all back when I made them. For some reason though, you aren't developing as an artist and you're stuck in this stage where your artistic abilities are severely underdeveloped but you just aren't able to see it.The whole hyper-bimbo thing isn't the problem here, that's just the basis for your artistic vision. The problem though is that your art isn't aesthetically pleasing at all, and you can't see that because your mind is in this bubble of delusion. Just look at pic related and compare it to yours. The principle isn't exactly the same but you should be able to see there is a huge disparity in fidelity. Can you see that?
>>646362dude you are posting in a daz thread for people who play with 3d dolls turn down the autism a bit and have fun
>>646363Just because you're unable to develop as an artist, doesn't mean everyone else is too.
>>646364you. are. posting. in. a. daz. thread.
>>646365And what's your point, brainiac? DAZ can be used to make fantastic shit.
>>646354christ what a pedantic assholeThis is your first time in a DAZ general and the stink of virgin won't ever come off of you. For the record I will never find what GA does "attractive" but as a developer, I also know how it requires a surprising amount of effort to do what he does (whether I like it or not). His renders are clean, correctly lit, and frequently revolting but he demonstrates skill. Post your work, if you have any (protip: you don't).
>>646371I was pretty happy with how this one turned out.I know all about the skills and efforts required to make 3D asets, and you need to get over it. Creating models and textures is finnicky but it's not rocket science. I'm not saying I'm the best by any means, but with the improvements I*ve made over the last year alone, it's been pretty eye opening about a lot of things. I don't think most people in this thread are actually seeking to improve their artistic abilities at all, and that's a shame, because you could all do a lot better. And I say that as the only person who puts any efforts into his renders in this entire thread, and I have no shame saying that.
>>646362What are you hollering about, my vision is to achieve orgasm not win an Emmy for Christ's sake. I daresay that's the whole point of these threads. And /3/ in general if I'm honest.
>>646373Well. I think you're settling for bronze when you could be going for gold, know what I'm saying hombre?
>>646365So? What are you trying to prove by that?
>>646372 (Tullamore)>but with the improvements I*ve made over the last year aloneYeah and ironically most of the improvements came from the useful crit I've pounded into your ass here while at the same time I'm saying lay off GA. The difference is GA is a porn artist scratching his own itch and while you don't believe it, I know the base figure and toolset he uses and I'm impressed with how he turned Victoria 4 into those characters using nothing except Poser's Morph Brush (which is a damn sight less sophisticated than ZBrush or even Blender). And you've built your muscle women entirely using external sculpting tools instead of prebuilt morph sets, as well as learning how to make your own clothing and props. In your own ways, you both put a lot of time and effort into your work. For one thing, GA's characters are usually animated and AFAIK I don't recognize too many if any premade animations in them.If either of you (or I) tried to post your work on Artstation we'd all be laughed out of the site. Let's dial the catfighting a bit back here, I respect both of you for what you do.
>>646377Oh wow, you're actually taking credit for my improvements? I'm honestly fucking shocked to my core. The fucking gall of that.I don't know what to say at this point. That just made me so fucking angry. If your goal was to get under my skin, then you accomplished that. I put time, effort, frustration, vision and love into my craft, and this guy wants to take credit for that? I even hide your posts every time because your criticisms are fucking dogshit. I couldn't even tell you a single point of criticism you've ever relayed to me because I haven't read any of your posts for at least over half a year, I just hide them automatically because I don't need your point of view sullying my own creative vision.I'm honestly, genuinely flabbergasted that you'd be this arrogant. Meanwhile, you never contribute anything to the thread yourself, and if you do, it's nothing worthwhile because everything that's posted here is pretty much unanimously god-awful. I really don't know what else to say. I'm trying to figure out how to deal with the rage I'm feeling right now so that nobody will be able to get under my skin the way you just did. Honestly, get yourself in check, man, because your head is so far up your own ass it's unbelievable if that's what you actually think.
>>646379>I couldn't even tell you a single point of criticismYou couldn't do that for anyone. You're just masquerading your strong, autistic opinions as criticism.
>>646377I'm going to bed right now because some of us have to work in the morning, but honestly, you just sent me into an intense rage by that statement.The amount of time I've put into this; spending weeks on a composition just to try to get all the details right. Fiddling with software, trying to work within my own hardware limitations, teaching myself how to model, teaching myself how to UV map, teaching myself how to texture a model from scratch, teaching myself how to utilize marvelous designer, to create clothes, to create hair, to create skin textures, to become more proficient in substance painter, to figure out my own pipeline, to streamline said pipeline, to getting better at finding the motivation, getting better at initializing a new idea for a composition.You had NOTHING to do with that. It was my effort, and my effort alone. Get that clear. If you bother responding, I won't read it, because I'm leaving now and I'm only ever coming back to this thread to post my work, and then I'm out again. I will never come in here again just to frequent, or see what is going on, or to give critique, because what you just said was honestly the most insulting thing I have ever read in my life. The fucking nerve that you think you had anything to do with my hard work. Eventually I will move on to using Blender to fulfill all my needs, and I won't even post here anymore. I'm looking forward to that. Before this I was in the TK17 thread, and I moved on from that. Before that, I was in the Skyrim thread making shitty compositions, and I moved on from that. This is just another checkpoint on my way to improving, and I'm going to show your arrogant ass what true skill actually looks like.
>>646379>you're actually taking credit for my improvementsNo, I'm saying I was the one who gave you most of the useful suggestions, then you ran with them, well past what I even suggested. I'm putting it in the context of the potential hypocrisy of me saying to you "aim for more anatomical realism" while holding GA to a different standard, I am not in any sense taking credit for the time you put into learning and using the tools to get there. You did the work, I just gave feedback. Apologies if it came across otherwise.
>>646382And again, you did all that, not me. Other people here said you should learn clothes modeling instead of using VG assets and you jumped into that pretty damned quickly.
>>646372wait you are giving gif author shit for his/her unrealistic niche fapfuel when you make unrealistic niche fapfuel like that? you might as well be a furry. get off your high horse.
>>646235>butthurt you detected.
>extreme butthurt: the threadgotta love the internetto the "i make everything lol" anon:Shut the fuck up, holy shit. You don't get to say that shit "looks awful". GA's work is technically proficient enough. He demonstrates good lighting concepts, scene composition and plays with abstract backgrounds. And he's an animator too! A decent one at that, with good understanding of motion and application of physics.And Christ, you're acting so goddamn hypocritical and you don't even see it. You say "i'm so pissed off that you're acting so arrogant!!" yet you don't even realise you're the arrogant asshole here. Reread all your posts and see how much of a pompous dickhead you're acting.Here's a fun newsflash: not everyone likes musclebound freakgirls the same way not everyone likes GA's hyperbimbos. You, especially, have no right to criticise someone on what turns them on when you yourself are feeding your own.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVaiQDYC9ZwBased uvuvweyvwey shows how to import daz figures into blender.
>>646362>You're getting defensive though and showing you can't back up your artistic vision at all because if there's the slightest hint that I dislike your work you'll just dismiss the input entirely. That shows you're not confident in your work and you probably know it.Hey everyone we got the acknowledged authority on artistic vision here! You grace us with your presence my liege.

>>646445Shoud I post my deformed gremlinoids next?
>>646467Sure, why not? This is /3/ after all.
where to find daz addon torrents?
>being proud that you can export a daz model, sculpt a bit in zbrush and shit out a blender renderlmaoThat's basic bitch stuff, not something to be proud of. GA and you both make fetish freaks, you are the same shit.
>>645528I found myself waiting a lot for Mantra to render, so I finally caved in and switched to Redshift (couldn't be happier with its speed!). So I rebuilt the shaders, modified the eyes a little once again, and adapted the groom retargeting to work with Redshift.
>>646580>and a hundred years from now I'll think about hair and clothing

>>646582holy shit you aren't kidding
>>646372>only person who puts any efforts into his renders in this entire threadyou don't know me, bitch
why are you guys using daz ? theres honey select for that. you guys like realistic figures?
>>646685I'm using it for practice. The slightly arousing pictures are just a bonus. *shrug*
Is there any good free hair?
>>646717there's lots of good "free" hair.
>>646686Honey select is literally 3d waifu maker: the game.
>>646725But its hard to make nice butts in illusion games.
>>646717>If I use google I'll diewhat's the downside
>>646685>Why aren't you using the shittier program? Why are you allowed on the internet without your helmet you illiterate faggot
>>646725Honey Select is even more plebeian than DAZ.
>>646811I WANT MYI WANT MY PATREON
Woah! That's one mammoth-fed hunk 'o' love!
>>646835If you post this on ArtStation you'll get hundreds of likes and perhaps even a place on the land page, but only if you don't mention you used meshes from DAZ.
>>646835Slabface Mc Bufftits
>>646869Say that to her face, fucker, and see what happens.
>>646835that's a really tiny brain case there pal, at what point in the ZBrushing process did you say to yourself unironically, "I'm going to intentionally compress the skull, and this actually looks good and not creepy as fuck"
is there a way to catch the Willis Bundle somewhere ? I miss the hears and the beard
>>646900Don't you have enough good boy points that your mom could buy it for you by now? Also if you installed the daz-deals chrome extension you'd know it routinely goes on sale.
This Genesis 9 Male looks great
>Remember Her? Take a Deep Breath Before You See What She Looks Like Now
>>646999What is this abomination?
>>646999>Mike TeeveeWhen you make one of these you have to create appropriate non realistic textures for exactly this reason
>>646999who is stylizing these should be shot in the cunt...
>>646999>Those fucking kneecaps...I'd make fun of a robot that had knee caps like that. what in the actual fuck.
>>647020Extra padding. You know what it's for.
>>647036>paddingThat is the opposite of padding. They look like they are for docking.
Gonna need some more WIPs senpai.
>>647179why don't you make your own dumbass
>>647184I have, they are not impressive. Also seeing new posts helps time pass while doing nothing at work.
>>647189>I have, they are not impressive.Don't need to be.
So if I only ever intend on posing stock and sfm models other people have created for the purpose of later 3d printing said poses, would Daz be a better choice for me than continuing to struggle in blender?

X-mas panther cuckold edition when??
>>647532Its not like that thread even had cuckolding in it. Just the one sperg that always REEEEEEs at the mention of it.
>>646581It takes time, my dude. I hope to get to clothing soon.>>646582It's a shadow, lol. But I'll agree it's badly placed. Thank you for pointing it out.I'm now working on getting as much detail as I can from the maps that come with Gia 8, and transferring that detail to the "anatomical elements", which was problematic because the UV maps differ. So far I'm quite happy with the results.

Will there ever be good hair that doesn't look like an explosion and with less than gazillion of polys?
Now have the WoW female gnome figure rigged to work with Daz Studio. Now to make some expression controllers, and work on the hair rigging then I'll start making some clothes for it.

>>647562>i'm a pedo but want plausible denial
>>647562Nice job. But I must ask, why rig it to bring it into DAZ, instead of taking things from DAZ into other software?

I'm back and bigger than life with another sale for you, boychiks. If you like raw outdoor environments, a chunk of HWW0/ShaaraMuse3D's outdoor scenes (and clothing and food props) are 60% off right now through the 27th, most around six bucks. These are some pretty detailed scenes, good in either Daz Studio or Poser. If you don't have at least some of this stuff in your wishlist, you ain't paying attention!https://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/vendor/HWW0
>>647604>Every anonymous poster is the same.
Holy shit that dForce crap is such a fragile piece of shit faggot software.Iray is running just fine with GPU but that spastic dforce shit only recognizes the CPU as computing device. Tons of people having the same problem and they provide no solutions other than "it's Nvidia's fault". Many even have the same exact setup, same drivers and hardware and suddenly the GPU won't get recognized as computing device anymore.
>>647624Update your drivers. It's the drivers.
>>647624Your scene could be taking up more memory than your video card has and it falls back to CPU.
>>647625>>647627>wat is reading comprehension
>>647634>dForceOOF, you're right.I just spat out a common answer to a common iray problem. Can't help you there senpai. Haven't had many dForce errors that weren't completely related to a particular item.
>>647596Because I like Daz. Its easy to use and simple to make content for.
So, I've come across this guy and his work quite a few times already. Can anyone tell me what's the big deal here? Am I the only one who finds his characters odd/bad looking? I don't get what seems to excite people so much about them. Sure, he poses them nicely, and the expressions are decent, but besides that... what is there to it?
>>647654>erogenesiscgiAgreed but not uncommon for Daz anything.Like some sort of specular or vasoline covered uncanny nearly toon-valley.Usually I'll follow an artist on DA after I favorite a couple of their works. The stuff hes been pumping out though, I don't know why I started following.
>>647543Testing a mixed morph with all surface detail extracted from the Gia 8 base maps. Also, I think I can finally trust the groom retargeting -- so far, it has been following the morphs/poses well.
>>647654imagine being able to buy a model for poser designed from the ground up for making sex comics. erogenesis is a comic book artist who designs his own stuff.
>>647613umh I could just either import Vue stuff into Daz or vice versa if I want outdoors environmentsand there is even Terradome for Studio, so...
>>647625Hi Bob>>647654It's a really versatile figure and he busted his ass making its JCMs do a lot of work to remain natural looking. disclaimer: I'm one of the beta testers.>>647675Also, this.>>647711>there is even Terradome for StudioThat's a nice stopgap measure but these are generally purpose built. >>647754>please pay the cost of Poser to start over, again
>>647675There is Project EvolutionBut it's literally for Poser and doesn't work with DAZ
>>647859>But it's literally for Poser and doesn't work with DAZPeople have used it in DAZ, but the weight maps have to be converted. Most of what PE does is JCM based which works in either.
>>647859>>647880So, Project Evolution is just a custom rig for Poser/DAZ?
>>647887Complete custom figure and rig, yes. I don't know what's involved in conversion to DAZ if anything besides weight maps. Also, the other thing the pro version comes with is a manikin for converting V4 clothing to PE in Poser. This is of course not an issue in DS.
>>646737Apparently it's hard in Daz, as well.
That's one volatile viking honey!

>>648185Read the poster's name, Anon.
>>648187The filename doesn't tell me anything except what the picture is
>>647654I don't like his characters either but the artist did make a great cock model.
https://community.hivewire3d.com/threads/official-announcement-hivewire-3d-to-partner-with-reallusion-on-content.3256The promo videos for CC3 DID say that the figures used in the final release might be different from the ones seen in those videos.
First item of clothing is new underwear, because Gnome underwear looks like a filthy chastity device in Warcraft.I figure Mekkatorque Underoos would be more befitting. Cute and geeky as are gnomes.
>>648193The poster's name. It's Gif Author. Abominations are his thing. He has a fetish for hideous zombies with ridiculously large dicks. To each their own.
Sometimes I really regret keeping these generals going but there is decent content once in a while.
>>648281lose the faggy eyepatch
>>648305No. It's part of my character's mog. I'm a pirate rogue.
>>648333>pirates all lost an eye it's how you tell they're piratesstop posting
As an aspiring new Daz """artist""", are users really autistic enough to know you are using pirated content in a render. Track you down by username etc and sicking (((lawyers))) on you?Or is that only if you are getting paid for your renders/games?
I take it, at this point I'm going to have to suck it up and learn custom clothing morphs for titty monsters?I feel like buying the breast helper addon was a waste for most of the items.
>>648381What are you calling pirated content?If it is regular Daz3d content you got from shady website, then there is no problem. Even if, say, someone was autistic enough to link your ``Daz3DProArtistXXXXXXXXXXX'' deviantart account with your ``Daz3DSmallDickCuckXXXXX'' Daz3d account, there is literally no proof that you didn't buy those assets under yet another name.Never had any problem.If it is video game assets repurposed for your renders, then people WILL remark, but won't care if you're doing porn. I don't know if people care if you aren't doing porn, as I'm only doing porn.
>>648384>>648381Now what I'm saying is valid for Patreon-type porn production, and small commission and shit.If you're planning to go 10000% pro and produce a steam game under your Daz3DProArtistXXXXXXXXXXX name, then you'd better buy those assets, because I guess someone will care somewhere. Pic related. Guy bought the night elf model from Daz3d and produced a VR game and shit.If you're at this level though, you don't care about the $50 for the night elf model.
>>648348>what are stereotypes?
>>647673Switched the skin to Charlene's. I had to spend quite some time trying to find a decent workflow for removing the pubic hair across UV seams, but finally got it.
>>648348That's not why sailors wore eye patches.
>>648381Daz has more employees dedicated to tracking down appropriation of their assets than they have technical staff working on improving their software.
>>648464>Daz has more employees dedicated to tracking down appropriation of their assets than they have technical staff working on improving their software.So what, three people?
is hexagon good again yet?
>>648464>Daz has more employees dedicated to tracking down appropriation of their assetsAt best they're occasionally watching Unity and Unreal releases looking for unlicensed embedded Genesis figure meshes/rigs, and even then proving that requires being able to unpack those that aren't in protected formats. Policing literally anything else is lost money to DAZ.On the other hand:>>648381>are [PAs] really autistic enough to know you are using pirated content in a render>>648384>different account names between store and gallery site is plausible deniabilityIf you both make terrible renders, never have a patreon or crowdfunded projects, and no one ever likes or reblogs your art you're probably fine.
>>648510Good job at saying one thing and the opposite in the same post, anon.You're saying that DAZ does not care about anything but Unity and Unreal releases, except that they do care if you make good renders or people like your stuff. Do they care or don't they? What are you saying? Do you even know?By the way I have a cult following, people like and reblog my art like crazy, and I use the plausible deniability argument with great success. DAZ gives no shit about your credentials, never tried to contact me, they don't have the money for it.
>>648480Getting there. It's more stable now.
>>648520>and I use the plausible deniability argument with great successCan you give a bit of detail regarding how you set it up? I'm totally not the DAZ police lol, just interested in covering my identity as well.
>>648520>By the way I have a cult following, people like and reblog my art like crazy>also, I can't model a woman that doesn't look like a man
>>648567Frankly, I assumed it was the one who shall not be named.
>>648568I believe that one doesn't come here anymore.
Just spent most of the day putting this together, still need to create the morphs and shit, but I'm happy with how this is turning out.

>>648593Weird assed shit is going on with the hem of that skirt. You might want to check your weightmaps, unless it's a morph issue.

Oh boy, now I can make the big bux on the patreon!
>>648683>There's a 3DX discord for all you deviants btw.and 90% of it is concerned with affect3d futashit and affect3d futashit charity drives

>>648692>affect3d Doesn't seem like that to me but plenty of random tumblr artists. Some older ones too like based chimera46
>>648711The mods are only interested in closeted homosexual content with a heavily disproportionate slant compared to other 3D porn sites like Renderotica. 3DX=dickgirls because those niggers all grew up on /d/ and can't fathom people fap to anything else.
>>648768I dont bother with the dickgirl or gay channels, seems like your average content otherwise.Still very deviant of course.
>>648769I guess my bone is with the mods trying to run the 3D adult content general on /aco/ where the message is ALL FUTA ALL THE TIME NO BULLY PLS and then setting up contests where 2 out of 10 pics do not feature a giant dick on a girl. I'll quit bitching about the discord.
>>648771Im not sure its the same group. aco thread is full autism, the people on the 3DX discord seem more focused on daz and are pretty cool to talk to.
What's a good dog dick prop?There's "girl's best friend" but its a bit dated.
>>648792Got a fair one from SFMlab. Same one used in the ciri videos. Bad UV seam at the top though.Now, to learn how to port to daz with rigging!
>>648837Nothing ports to Daz with rigging. Daz dies this on purpose so that people can't use non Daz products with Daz. Anything you port to Daz you will have to rerig to get it to work.
>>643337I've tried to install DAZ for over five years on a couple of different computers and I still haven't been able to do it without some kind of error. Manually installing third party content. Oh boy. I'd rather have my nails slowly pulled out one by one than do that again. Why is this software such a nightmare to work with?
>>648889you are probably too dumb to install anything
>>648889install manager really streamlines everything. I guess the "hardest" part would be keeping the library directory structure intact when installing pirated dicks.

do any anon use custom genital morphs or just what comes with the model set
>>648874The funny part is Daz's official statement is they're not purposefully borking DAE and FBX to keep people from using 3rd Party assets but that it's just a bug in Daz that they've been unable to fix.Yet when the few techs Daz still has talk about it they say "I could "fix" it with a single line of code but Daz won't let me because they don't want people using 3rd party assets."
>>649091I dont get it, it's not like their render engine is hot shit.
>>649091>when the few techs Daz still has talk about it they say "I could "fix" it with a single line of code but Daz won't let me because they don't want people using 3rd party assets."care to link that?
Ok I think asking this is a long shot because I'm using legacy stuff, but, when I try to apply a morph to victoria4 nothing happens, why?The only clue I have is the info box at the top, that says it could not find any weight map. So... what is this? anyone knows?

>>649320HUSH! You've done it now!
>>649263Terrible hair model. Looks like a hand painted game rip.
can anyone explain the interactive license to me? there's HUNDREDS of pages on the daz forum, but literally no one, including the mods or staff, have any idea how it works.
>>649324>the interactive licenseThe default license for nearly all 3D content for applications like DS and Poser permits you to own/distribute any renders or videos you make with the content, but you cannot redistribute the actual content inside digital media (e.g. games). What DAZ calls the "interactive" license (and Renderosity calls the "extended" license) permits you to embed the content into distributable products. FYI if you're using Poser Pro, all the content that ships with it already has that license now. If you're not using Pro, it doesn't.
>>649372so using normal maps from daz models to put in a game requires the license?
>>649382One would assume any content from daz that has the option for interactive license.
>>649383so basically daz is essentially worthless, because a model that costs 20 bucks, has a license that costs 50 bucks more.
>>649384>so I'm entitled to repurpose content any way I see fit for the price of a render licenseYou literally came to this hobby last week from Goatfuckistan didn't you.
>>649386no retard, i'm saying if a fucking dog model costs 10 dollars, but has an interactive license of 50 dollars, i'll just go buy a fully animated dog from any other store for 20 dollars. i just didn't think daz could have possibly made such a useless license.
>>649387>i'll just go buy a fully animated dogthis has nothing to do with whether it's animated or not you idiot, it's about whether you are permitted to include the mesh, its rig and maps wholesale in a product you intend to distribute. In other words the IP itself, not images made from it. That fully animated dog from cgbytes, turbosquid, or wherever doesn't come with a license to redistribute the product inside your own games. Show me an example of this "fully animated product from any other store" that has no license with limitations you can buy.
>>649321Mrs. Mooth won't come in this thread. He doesn't know how to rig so his hideous abominations never leave Zbrush.

>>650011I've seen one for SFM on either smutbase or sfmlab.
>>650013Thanks but I need one for Daz or poser.
>>650023You can convert them pretty easily. The rigging is the tough part.
>>650039So they can't be converted easily
>>650118Easy enough for basic props
>>643337I recommend you the Beta version 4.11, there is an excellent AI Denoiser.render time for this one 3-4 minutes with the denoiser ( in rendering parametre )
>>650402What section of parameters?
>>650417neat, will give it a shot.
>>650559>still telling people to make clothing by extruding the figure meshThe biggest draw for CC is that it imports DAZ figures. Not only does their EULA specifically prohibit making clothing from the meshes, it even prohibits using shrinkwrap modifiers on generic shapes to create clothing. They are THAT anal about their IP. Even an interactive license won't give you permission to 3D print their figures.

>>651547>oil up those black mennot all of us are making wegs mate
it irritates me to no end that if you make a character that's even slightly larger than normal you get these weird, fucked up seams where the pec meets the armpit
>>651698Clothing is literally cut differently for big people and DAZ just stretches and folds to conform without consideration for that.
>>651707Nah, it comes from the model itself. I've tried this with G2M, G3M and G8M and there's always this weird deformation in the armpit area. I wish I knew how to smooth it out.
>>651698>>651707>>651708It'll come to a point where you are just going to have to design things per figure. Even our boy musclgirl-bro has started doing that. There's no way around it unless you want your stuff looking like sorting the daz official galleries by new.
>>649440>That fully animated dog from cgbytes, turbosquid, or wherever doesn't come with a license to redistribute the product inside your own games.Last time I checked, you can do that as long as the original mesh/textures/whatevs cannot be easily recovered (which is usually a given with distributed games, since they pack assets in their own formats). I might be wrong tho, so anybody correct me if that's the case.
>>651737>I might be wrong thoYou are. Obfuscation is not a defense here.>>651709The other issue is that most clothing has a pattern and neither Poser nor DS dynamically pattern a mesh so you get ridiculous distortion thanks to UV or UV-based topo.
>>643715>of oldAny game with decent mod support uses this. ESPs and ESMs for Skyrim, .package files for the Sims... Just becuase a videogame does it doesn't mean it's a bad idea desu
>>643715>Maybe daz should use some "compressed but not really" formatBoth DAZ and Poser use gzip, the difference is that DAZ doesn't change the extension.
