[Tutorial] Creating Dust And Atmosphere in IrayA video version is here.[Tutorial] Creating Dust And Atmosphere in Iray1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I learned this method from jag11 on the DAZ3D forums, who is thanked for permission to use it in this tutorial!
In 3Delight there's no way to create atmosphere or godrays (the rays that are visible when light passes through dust or particles). There are products to facilitate (one of them mine), but most are either not the easiest to use or ultimately just a faking of a feature the engine lacks. Many artists use postwork instead.
DAZ Studio 4.8 Beta's new Iray engine also lacks a native mechanism for creating atmospheric volumes - but it can be easily convinced to produce them! They will come from your lights and react to objects in your scene. I did a test image of Jack Tomalin's Chapter House Iray scene (free to Plat Club members
Features!! *EDIT*I don't generally do this, but I think this guy is really worth mentioning. :iconlove2bd1: is an awesome person and one of my good friends here on dA!! Now I have several friends here on dA, and I think they deserve a mention in this journal too, but none of them are quite like Love2bd1. You see, he absolutly HATES MLP with a burning passion, BUT, depite this, he decided to surprise me by commissioning someone to draw my ponysona. ;u; That he would do this says something very good about his personality, and I think he deserves some watches from my friends so that you can be his friend too. I will admit, he's not the greatest artist, but so few of us are and I can honestly say that he has improved GREATLY since I began watching him and has become a decent artist.Features!! *EDIT*3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Why is it That Your Crying?There was a time when I tried to believe.Why is it That Your Crying?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There was a time I thought I could fly,
but now my wings feel torn
and the pain fills my spine.
So all I can do is walk,
but now the pain has made it hard to breath.
I guess my time in flight,
ends like falling leaves,
and as I fall, so do tears
and they hold my forgiveness
and my sorrow.
And I think to myself
"please take away my tomorrow."
I don't want this anymore.
I don't even want to live.
Why is it that I always must forgive?
No matter who it is.
No matter what the scare.
I can't believe he said it,
that he doesn't care.
And now who I thought was my best friend,
who claims he will no longer mind,
has made me wish I lay in a grave
and has taken my breath before my eyes.
I honestly can't hold back anymore.
I honestly wish I couldn't care,
but for me that isn't easy
and my life just stopped and stared.
It whispered to me
Why is it that your crying?"
I told him
I heard something,
something truly terrifying.
And now I want to sit
MemoriesI was cleaning up my explosion of an art desk when a folder from the top shelf fell down and hit my head. All of the old drawing that had long since been forgotten. I gasped when old letter, photos, and worst of all, old drawing landed all on the floor. I instantly began cleaning up. With each picture I picked up I noticed how much of a horrible artist I was about a year ago. I had a black journal with a red tattoo style dragon on it. About two years ago I had been absolutely OBSESSED with Naruto. I spent about eight months filling that notebook up. Until one day, I ran out of paper. I was totally depressed. I had no clue what to draw anymore. And then one day I had a friend over who has a really impulsive brother who wanted to see my drawings. I tried to hide the notebook but he found it. And I was so flustered and annoyed that I snatched the notebook from him and it tore in two pieces. All the pictures went flying. I grabbed them all as fast as I could and put them into a nice new foMemories3 years ago in Personal More Like This

XPS to Rigged Daz Studio FigureIf anyone interested finds this: I couldn't find anyone who had done this and wrote about it. I'm still figuring it out, after a lot of dead ends, but I do have my first working figure. After trying methods using 3d studio, blender(multiple versions since scripts seem to work only for the version they where written for- and Norton's hates blender.exe) , hexagon and a few others and addons I got it to work with Just XPS and Daz (with blender as a little optional help!). The Kasumi DOA figure rendered in my Gallery (as of this writing) was rigging automatically with the G2F skeleton (cleaning up the joints is on the "to do" list) using the DAZ built in transfer tool. The basic steps are:XPS to Rigged Daz Studio Figure10 months ago in Personal More Like This

[Tutorial] Transferring Character Morphs G1 to G2(Updated for new features in DS 4.6.2.)[Tutorial] Transferring Character Morphs G1 to G22 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been hearing a fair amount of complaints about Genesis 2 Female lately, and I understand; I said many of the same things when it first came out. I should've known better, because I also did this when Genesis came out, but sometimes we live and learn slower than we'd like.
One of the most common, and most easily answered, is "I already have a bunch of characters for G1 that I can't recreate on G2." For this purpose, G2 refers to Genesis 2, not the old Poser G2 figures.
Well, as a matter of fact, you can. With practice you can do it in seconds per FBM (don't let the length of the tutorial fool you). The first version of this workflow came from Kattey on the DAZ forum, for which I acknowledge credit.
Here is that (lengthy) thread: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/24093/

EMERGANCY COMMISSIONS Scoliosis/Compressed spineMy dog jumped on my moms bed about a week agoEMERGANCY COMMISSIONS Scoliosis/Compressed spine3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
and was SCREAMING in pain, and couldn't walk or barely move, so my mom cared him to the vet and wasn't back until 2 in the morning.
My dog has Scoliosis and a Compressed spine, And has to be
kept in a pet carrier/pen (its soft sided, well ventilated, but small enough so he can't move around too much and hurt himself. He has to be kept in there for 2 weeks and after that if his spine hasn't began to recover, he has to either be put down, or get surgery, which most likely he'll have to get.
If the surgery fails, he'll have to be put to sleep.
My mom had to get a loan type thing from the vet, and they gave her 500$ to help pay for the vet visit/medication, and she needs help paying that off, and money in case he needs surgery. He's on tranquilizers, pain killers, and something that helps his spine shift back into place i guess? I dunno. They say he might of been born with it otherwise the only way
his spine could of gotten like that was he was
