Why FireAlpaca is Worth It!This is to all of you who are wondering whether FireAlpaca is a good choice. In this journal, I'm going to address some points that might help you in deciding if FireAlpaca is right for you!
SIMPLE INTERFACE: FireAlpaca has a very simple interface, much like Paint Tool SAI. Whether the user is used to digital art, or wants to start doing digital art, the interface of the program won't require much to get used to. Everything that the user
may need for doing art is there once you start the program. There is a row of tools that you will find at the left of the screen (and it looks like the tool row from Photoshop). On the right of the screen has the Layers panel, and Navigator panel. The good thing you can do is move each panel anywhere you want. That being said, FireAlpaca makes a really comfortable software.
THE BRUSHES: This software allows the user to do things with brushes that isn't possible in many other software. There is already a Symmetry brush that allows you to m
Huion Driver Setting Tips for Windows UsersWhen Should I Select the Support TabletPC Checkbox?
Every now and then, we receive complaints from customers who cannot get the pen to response at all when the tablet itself works just fine (because the LED light is flashing when pressing the express keys). But in most cases, this problem can be magically solved by checking/unchecking the box "Support Tablet PC" in the Huion driver.
In order to help you better troubleshoot and improve your user experience, our technicians made the following table as an instruction of when to select the Support Tablet PC checkbox in the driver config software(windows 7 and 8).
Additionally, you may need to disable the Flicks Feature.
Hope the information given above is helpful to you.
Have a nice weekend!
Making a Living At DAZ3D Part 2: The First ProductMy previous journal entry on this topic is still being read and commented upon, and nearly every week someone contacts me about some step in the process of becoming a new vendor, or submitting their first product.
I always try to help, if I can; but the thing that strikes me the most about this is that people often omit the most important questions.
The ones I see the most are:
1. How do I convert this item I made in Maya, Zbrush or another program to work in Daz Studio?
2. How do I package it for release, and where do I send it?
The answer to the second question is here followed by here.
The first one does not have a short answer, because it varies by the product and its rigging t
[Tutorial] Tidying Your Genesis Morph ListThis tutorial is to help you deal with quickly reorganizing your morph directories for Genesis. It will eventually probably apply to Genesis 2 as well, but hopefully knowing this you can keep things from getting as messy as I know my Genesis Actor groups are.
But First: EVERYTHING NEEDS TO GO UNDER ACTOR.
This is all that's required for them to appear in the Shaping tab. I don't care about this, because I think the Shaping tab is completely unnecessary, but it may save you a few complaints if you release products or freebies. Also, if you want to offer a product to DAZ, they prefer morphs to appear under Actor as well.
I'll also take the opportunity to apologize for the products for Genesis I sell at Rendo that are poorly categorized. I didn't sell at DAZ yet, and I didn't know. I can't really update them now, either, because without uninstalling manually people would just have morphs appearing in two places. I promise to do it from now on.
Making A Living at DAZ3DThis was updated on 2/21/18 to reflect changes in our market.
Every so often someone asks if this is possible, how hard this is, and how to do it. I'm writing this journal entry so I can just link them back to it instead of typing the same post or forum PM repeatedly.
I'm putting these down in the order they are usually asked, not in the order I think they should be asked.
Q: How much money can I make?
A: I make an extremely good living for the Western USA selling in the Daz market. I have a lightly used car that's paid off and I own my own home in a high-income part of the country. I also sell at Renderosity, but I would describe that as a "hobby" or "bonus" income; it would be hard to do without it, but it's not what pays the rent every month, either. For the most part you will make back according to the time you put in. Only a few top artists get into six figures in American dollars in our market, and they are the biggest names who s
