This is another quick test of the "HiveWire House Cat" kitten morph with "LAMH Presets for the HiveWire House Cat By Saiyaness".  This time I tried to create a custom fur material from the Millennium Cat's Siamese textures. No post work

Someone suggested that I use more DOF because it helps things look more like a photograph ;)

Thank you, I wanted to see of I could use a millennium cat texture on a Hivewire cat.  It didn't work, but it gave me the assets to use to make it work ;)

Thank you,  I needed to see if a "Millennium Cat" texture could be converted to "Hivewire house cat".  It was a lot harder than I anticipated.  I need to find a good way to paint on a 3D object ;) (Wink)

Isn't it possible to open the textures in photoshop? or does that create another heap of problems?

I used Photoshop, but I would love to be able to adjust the UV textures on the model rather than on an unwrapped version.  It was a pain to line up the seams ;)

Yeah, I feel you bro'! It turned out great though.

Isn't it possible to copy the textures in photoshop, from the cat that doesn't fit on to the cat-texture you want to replace?

When I edited my textures that was how I did it, In other words I edited textures that I knew fit, and pasted things I wanted on to it, to create my custom textures.

Or was that what you did?

I modified the Hivewire cat texture in Photoshop by coping the millennium cat texture into it.  They didn't line up, so I had to clone in the missing parts.  The big difference was where the ears and tail connect to the body.  It took a lot of back and forth between Photoshop and DAZ Studio to smooth this transition out.  Using the UV map helped but it would have been nice to be able to blend them on the actual figure. :)
