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

Using Cross-Figure With Genesis 8
Cross-Figure Genesis 3 is a program that allows you to use Genesis 3 Female hair and clothing on Genesis 3 Male and vice versa without using AutoFit.  There are some extra steps using it with Genesis 8, but you don't have to be able to use a modeling program (unless you want to make a better ID morph after you're done, but we'll get to that).
Here's a YouTube version.  You'll have to turn your sound up.  Sorry. 
You need:
Daz Studio
Genesis 8 Male and Female
Cross-Figure
Instructions G8F to G8M:


Load Genesis 8 Female into the scene.
Load a piece of clothing or hair onto Genesis 8 Female that you wish to convert.



Go to the Parameters tab.  If you do not have one, you can create one by right-clicking near your existing tabs and finding it in the list.
Click on the tiny button at top left of this

Tutorial: Lighting and Rendering Night Scenes
Here is the YouTube version of this tutorial, and here is the accompanying tutorial on using Canvases.
Working with the Iray render engine, and seeing what people do with it on deviantart, over time I've seen the same mistakes repeated many times.  One of the most common that I see has to do with rendering night scenes or other scenes that are meant to be dark.
The thing is that the human eye is bad at seeing in the dark.  If you render literally what someone would be seeing, your scene will look terrible, but this is exactly what I see many people doing.  Hollywood movies often use two specific techniques to create night scenes: lit foreground objects against dark backdrops and "blue-for-night" lighting.  There's a third option (used more in horror) that I will also cover, the use of strong specular highlights and/or rim lighting.  Let's take them one at a time.

Journal History

Cats can willingly starve themselves to death or become anorectic. It is not true that they will eventually swap to eating whatever you're offering, if they are suitably stressed out.

Please keep an eye on how your kitty eats, how often and if they are retaining weight or losing it. If your kitty starts horking up stomach fluids/stomach fluids with foam/stomach fluids with bile, but there's no sign of hairballs or food, take the kitty to the vet.

At least it was caught early enough with Didi and she's currently getting some super-boosted high-energy food, fresh meat and appetite-boosting medication (original use: human antidepressant).
