One way to kill poke through by CatalystSpark One way to kill poke through by CatalystSpark
Just a little tutorial/tip sheet for helping people deal with poke through in 3D. Mostly aimed at beginners because they seem to be the ones who have the most major run ins with the poke-through-demon but, hey, tips are tips.

Nice and clear tutorial. This is a helpful trick in certain instances. If you cannot use this method (due to transparent material, etc.), then you can still fall back on D-Formers or the Hexagon Bridge (while both are Daz Studio features, there are similar tools available in Poser), though those are a bit more complex. Like you said, this method is great for beginners.

Thank you. Yea, heck, to be honest, I never use the bridge, mostly because my computer looks at me like "Yea, you're joking right?" when I try >_>

What Hexagon version are you running? I found that the Bridge works better with 2.2 than it does with 2.5. I haven't tried any other versions (was the bridge even there in 2.1?).

Though, I gotta say, I haven't used Daz Studio since a few months before version 3 came out. I have no idea how Studio 3 interacts with the Hexagon Bridge.

I run 2.5, but my system itself can be a bit, well, weird to say the very least. Thankfully I'll be updating this dinosaur soon enough, she's served me good for the last 3 years but she just can't keep up anymore.

Works really well. Granted, 3d has come a long way since I started, but every once in a while you still find something that doesn't quite work right LOL

I feel stupid now... especially considering a lot of my renders are done in layers for the purposes of fixing things up. I never thought about doing that. Duh! Thanks for the pointer!

Don't feel bad, took me 4 months for this solution to smack me in the face as well, but it has become a great fallback.

It was nice of you to offer this tutorial for people who struggle with poke-throughs :) It is a quick, easy way to fix them. Close to what I usually recommend to others to fix it. I'd like to feature it in my group's tutorial sections since we are based around all the other figures and I know some of them might have trouble making certain clothes fit them :)

Sure, I don't mind. Hope it can help a few. Simplest solution yet took me 4 months to figure out when I first started, figures!

*giggles* When I started out, I often used the base body for my figures without morphs so that I didn't have poke-through. If I put them in a pose that caused it, I tried a different pose, etc. So yeah it took me a loooong time as well *giggles* Thanks again, Catalyst!
