Laticis Imagery FREE - Genesis 2 Male Beard by Laticis Laticis Imagery FREE - Genesis 2 Male Beard by Laticis
Here it is - ready for playtime....well I hope.

I saved the DSON files for Poser use ( no material set up ) but it took ages to load and that was only Beard 02

Also it wont work with the base expressions, the only way I could get it to work was to follow this excellent tutorial from:

ModernWizard - Rigging Facial Hair in Daz Studio 4.6+
www.sharecg.com/v/78351/view/3…

It did the job and very well but wow, the finished file size was 6GB - so right, not going to happen. The beard as it is isn't bad, it works some of the expression sets out there.

DS Shader is setup with UberSurface, so render times should be sweet.

TIP: Beard 02 - for the promo's I added a Subdivision Level 1 and Smoothing set to 1 - this will help give it that fine look if that's what you want.

Would really love some feedback on this please, how your system handles it.

Happy Rendering

Cheers Laticis

it actually worked pretty good for me. however, I have been trying to save it out in different styles and even tho it shows the style in the thumbnail when i load it, it loads as a full beard again. so how do i save different styles as a preset?

By-the-by, what would it take to put in the bends to make it conform to mouth motion?

Laticis Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
That was too hard...bends yes easy to make morphs but with expressions and mouth movement, the file for G2Figures became too big, Gen3 fixed this for me though.

I like the body morphs for gen2 better. The spine on gen3 is wacky too.

Fantastic! Thanks for making this available! Works great on G2M! Even attaches correctly to the original Genesis male - although obviously it doesn't follow poses like it does on G2M - still looks fantastic for stills! :-)

Brand new to DAZ - and I need stuff to dabble with before I spend a lot, when I don't know what I'm doing. Already bought a *great* muscle morph - but it only works for the original BASE Genesis. :-/

Anyway - thanks again! Will definitely be looking for your stuff on the DAZ website!

Thanks heaps, my pleasure.

This one doesn't work with expression though :( - my beard product for G3 does though. 

Woo hoo welcome to the world of DAZ :) - yep there will be plenty to learn.

No probs at all, thank you very much :)

Hi Laticis, just wanted to thank you for the awesome hair and beards. Maybe you discovered this already, but they autofit like a dream to Genesis 3 Male and (maybe  because of the new face rig) follow expressions really well. The Really short hair also autofits directly, but not using the "cap" method with Real Short Hair. Thanks again, Redz xx

Nice work.  What I would love is a tutorial on how you did this in ZBrush.  I've had some mostly MISSED attempts at fibermesh beard creation.  I did a really great mustache but didn't save my settings and have never been able to recreate those settings, shame really but it was pure happenstance.  I was attempting to make on for Hivewire's Dusk but gave up.  He's got a killer mustache though!  lol  So if you can write a tutorial on your settings, what brushes you like to use to achieve the nice evenness of the beard that's something that would really come in handy for those of us that want to have a go at making our own!  Thanks so much!  :-)

The only way would be a video tutorial and I am not sure I could manage one in Zbrush, I had troubles with my first and only DAZ / Octane one.
Fibermesh will be different pending you mask, geometry density, etc.....the variables are staggering.
Then when it comes to the tools, what brushes to use where...that comes done to literally hundreds of hours of playing and testing. 

There are some many on YouTube too but the only way is sheer frustration LOL

Oh I understand frustration.  LOL  I had ONE good mustache but never could recreated that in the way of a beard.  Hopefully one of these days Pixo will improve the user experience with this tool.  It's a powerful and exciting tool but it's very frustrating, esp when exporting and trying to maintain that "look" you want.  Looks one way in ZB and looks really different exported and conformed to say Dusk or Genesis 2 male.  Plus I can not for the life of me get the shader's to look right with it, they look splotchy and strange in DS.  I've tried all sorts of free offerings, including Cath's (Mec4D) free hair shader, looks terrible on my attempts so I really need to figure out what I'm doing wrong, probably some setting in ZBrush I'm not setting up correctly when making the hair!  Thanks for the reply.  Sorry for the late response.  There doesn't seem to be a notification option so I just gotta remember to come here!
