[Tutorial] Indenting Skin Where It Touches Objects
(I will link a YouTube version when I have one.  Hopefully I can fix my mic's current issues soon.)
Today I'm going to show you how to force a figure in Daz Studio to indent when in contact with clothes, ropes, or other objects.  This is not a feature of the program at the moment (figures having physics is still a long way out, I suspect).  We can use a kludge to make it happen.
I was asked about this via PM, and I realized I hadn't actually tried it on the assumption that it would not work.  When I did try it, it actually DID work.  It's very unstable and somewhat crash-prone in my testing, and the higher poly the colliding object is the more unstable it is, but it works.
Here is the workflow I used.
1.  Load a figure into the scene.  I don't know if the geometry of Generation 4 is too different or not, but it might still work.  Definitely any Genesis figure will.
2.  Set up everything else in your scene: the clothes, the props, the lightin

This has been requested more than once, and I'll probably have to delete and repost it periodically to keep it from falling out of sight over and over again, but at least this gives me a place to link.

[Tutorial] Rigging A Door In Daz Studio
I'm still going to continue my Intro series with the Surfaces tab, but until I have the energy to do that much longer tutorial, this one was requested specifically by CrissieBrown
This is an intermediate tutorial.  It assumes you already have modeled, textured and have completed material setup of a mesh in your modeler.

[Tutorial] Creating Clothing Morphs in Blender
Now on YouTube, this teaches you to make morphs in Blender and load them on clothing items in DS. It covers some different categories (special character fits, FBM replacement fits, custom movement morphs).

Intro to Blender3d Texture Paint
Just uploaded my latest video to Youtube.  Enjoy :D
In this video, I give a Blender3D tutorial on how to paint a model using Blender's Texture Paint feature.
This is a beginner level tutorial.  In it, I'll go over painting a simple model, exporting the painting to a UV Image, and applying that image to your model.
Thanks for watching,

Upcoming Giveaways and Other Things

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 29, 2017, 6:01 PM

Fantasy Attic will be hosting their Halloween and Christmas freebie giveaways soon. I know, I know... it's still a bit early to be thinking about this. Well, I'm thinking about it now, because I Have notoriously very little time in which to actually sit down and work. Last year I missed both giveaways for lack of time as well as other health issues and such going on at the time.

I'd like to really do something for both giveaways this time. But what? LOL. I have fun doing poses, but I really want to do something more solid than that.

Sooooo.... this is the part where I ask, "What would you like to see made?" and hope some of you give me some ideas, because I'm at a loss, and I could sure use some input! I want to do something, but I just have no idea WHAT to do for either one yet. :)

Note :
I do not work with the G8Female. I can do Dawn/Dusk, M4/V4, or the Genesis 1-3's.

Some other things :

Adelaide for G3F - still WIP
Sukka for Dawn - still WIP
Pose packs for Dawn, Dusk, and Luna - still WIP
Various smaller freebies - still WIP

I have an awful lot that's still in progress. I still don't have any space in the house that is strictly dedicated as my own work space. I have a piece of the kitchen counter where my laptop can go, and I can work just so long as I can stand on my feet at the counter (and don't have other things to do).

I'm also still healing up from some recent injuries, thank you white supremacists in supposedly "blue" NY state... and after the first four months of the year with us having zero income, we're just now finally starting to dig out from a mountain of back bills. How we managed to NOT lose the house, I will NEVER know... but I am very grateful for it just the same. Thank you, my single mother who taught me how to juggle bills in order to keep them running without getting them shut off for nonpayment.

Anyway. Progress is being made here. Slowly but surely. But... my free time to work on 3D is very limited, and it's extremely difficult - at times impossible - to do without having a room that belongs to me that I can close a door on and focus. So my work is very start-stop-start-stop... which is another reason I'm thinking about the Halloween and Christmas giveaways NOW. LOL

On a non-3D note...

Our next door neighbor lost a willow tree on one of his properties in a recent wind storm. It was felled by the winds. He asked my Bear to come over and help him chop it down and remove it. 

I must be the only woman in this area who a man brings home willow branches as a peace offering, and it's actually the right choice to make! 

"Are you still mad at me? I done effed up, I'm sorry. Please don't kill me. Here, I brought you medicine." rofl 

This is how you know you're married to a healer... don't waste my time with chocolate or roses. But if you bring me medicine on the other hand...

I will do something with the willow branches, too. I just haven't decided what yet. Maybe a flute... I always did love the color of the wood underneath the bark on willow trees. At least the weeping willows in our area; it's just this very bright, gorgeous creamy almost-white color. 

I still feel bad for the poor tree. But at least it won't be wasted, and wind storms do have a tendency to bring trees down. Medicine, cordage, maybe a flute, some poles to support my tomatoes and climbers in my garden once the branches are cut, some other things... it will all go to use somehow. I don't waste anything... and even my city boy husband has learned that rule!

It's been far too long since I posted a journal here, I know. I can't guarantee that I'll write more often. But I'll promise to try. LOL

Peace, folks... don't do anything too wild, and if you do, don't get caught.  :smirking:

  • Drinking: Coffee, of course. What else?!
