Bos FBX Importer/Exporter for Blender 2.80 (Win64)
I noticed the next version of Blender, i.e., Blender 2.80, for 64-bit Windows OS is going to be compiled using Visual Studio 2015 and uses Python 3.7 (see https://builder.blender.org/download/).  This means, the Bos FBX Importer/Exporter I posted will not work.  Since this importer/exporter may be useful, I tried to prepare for that change.
What I did:
1. Download umio code from https://github.com/uimac/umio (direct link to the zip: https://github.com/uimac/umio/archive/master.zip)
2. Download Autodesk FBX SDK from https://www.autodesk.com/products/fbx/overview
3. Download boost from http://www.boost.org/
4. Download Python 3.7 from https://www.python.org/
5. Extract umio-master.zip to a folder
6. Install Autodesk FBX SDK
7. Install Python 3.7
8. Create a folder fbxsdk2018 under umio's lib folder
9. Copy the include folder of Autodesk FBX SDK to fbxsdk2018 created in the previous ste

Geograft Update
I have a lengthy two-part tutorial on YouTube about geografting.
I've recently found out, in the course of trying to help someone with a technical issue, that a new step is required when setting up geografts in DS 4.11 (and probably 4.10 also).  I've seen a lot of questions on the forum about it but had to really hunt to find an actual answer that worked.
The old procedure can result in a graft that pulls away at the edges, leaving an unsightly gap when mesh subdivision is applied.
Here's the procedure that seems to avert that.
Import your geograft item to Daz Studio, and rig with Figure Setup or Transfer Utility.
Make sure that both the parent figure and the geograft are NOT subdivided and are at Base resolution before starting this.  Both should also be in zero pose.
When your graft is rigged and memorized, select the outermost ring of faces on the geograft.
Go to Geometry Editor mode by clicking the icon that looks like  some connected dots and a pencil

Let It Go
Imagine, I have supernatural power over water!
This render is inspired by "Let It Go" from the movie "Frozen."
The water effect is done by 2 planes with the amazing texture image Water Whirpool stock by BubbleCloud by BubbleCloud
The bottom plane is just a plane with that texture image.  The top plane that is about 2 metres (DAZ Studio scale) above the bottom plane.  That plane has 40x40 subdivisions with a D-Former in the middle to pull the centre down by about 1 metre (DAZ Studio scale) to make the spiral effect more 3D like.  The character is DAZ 3D's Genesis 8 Female with my own morph.  The swimsuit is my own freebies.  The hair is converted from Samantha Hair for Victoria 4 (www.daz3d.com/samantha-hair) with my modifications and morphs.
Loading...
I'll keep doing what I like to do, i.e., 3D modeling.
The previous journal is not a complaint.  My idea of free model follows the very basic open source idea.  Feel free to add on to it but it has to be remain free.  I wonder if it is practical.
I'm not against particular vendor.  The textures I used to show my Amy AiMei for Genesis 3 Female is coming from that vendor.  I just want to raise a question to all vendors out there.  From my perspective, the "good stuff" of that product are the poses, expressions, and textures/materials.  I wonder why vendors keep "reinventing the wheel."  There are many nice tank tops and shorts out there.  There are some nice headphone, bean bag, and game pad look almost identical to what was shown in the promotion images of that product. There are many nice Victoria 4 clothing that can be converted to be used for all Genesis females.
That vendor can sell that nice textures/materials set for the basic tank tops and shorts, still can call it a gamer girl set.  I admired artists that create nice textures/materials because it will take long time for me to do that.  I don't mind if someone sell nice textures/materials for my freebies.
I found that

I'm not complaining.  Now, my question is: Should I create more freebies?

BTW, this is not the first time I found something that have released after my freebies at DAZ 3D's store.
