G3F OSD dforce by soup-sammich G3F OSD dforce by soup-sammich
***UPDATE*** DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS ANY MORE!  THERE'S A NEWER BETTER VERSION HERE: fav.me/dc7lkjm ENJOY! :D:D:D

For anyone who downloads the file:


Contents are: A full d'force file setup ready for use after unzipping and copy/pasting the contents appropriately.  Place the folder titled 'soup-sammich' into your Daz 'data' folder and the 'G3F_OSD_dforce' folder somewhere you'll remember for import into Daz.

Here are some of the basics:
1. This is just the dress.  It is d'force, but it's not perfect (it's free, after all).  I have noticed some "explosion" issues when getting a couple frames from a seated pose like the thumbnail.  Feel free to tweak as necessary...
--1.a. It's still just the dress.  Which is still fairly long.  I still recommend your model wear heels.  Flats still won't do... ;)  One thing I've noticed will help in the simulation: When doing the d'force simulation setup, hide the heels until after you've done the simulation.  You may need to do some tweaking to get the dress to drape right without poke through.  Or just fix poke through in post.
2. It only has the default texture that Marvelous Designer exports with the files.  You're on your own for the texturing...
4. The dress polygons are squares, so there are some minor "dimples" with some of the drapes.
5. The dress is fairly high poly, however, I've noticed that smoothing is required.  I've taken the liberty of setting that in the files, so you should be good to go.
6. I've also taken the liberty of setting the (for lack of a better word, and because I can't think of the actual Daz setting) "shrinkage" to 90% to better simulate the results of the full dynamic version I uploaded earlier, tweak as needed.
7. This is a somewhat conforming item, but it's not very well done without the d'force simulation present.
8. This DOES require Daz version 4.10.  If you're still on 4.9 I cannot guarantee success.  I've heard it's possible, but I didn't try...
9. If you use the dress in a render, please credit me here! (optional, but I'd like to see what you do with it :D (Big Grin) :D (Big Grin) :D (Big Grin))

Disclaimer: This is a free file, so it may need some tweaking from both our ends.  If you run into issues not being able to open the files in Daz, let me know.  If it's something I can fix, I will fix it and re-upload.  I unfortunately do not have the time to walk you through the processes for tweaking the cloth drapes and settings. 

Hope you enjoy the dress, and please let me see what you do with it! :D (Big Grin) Hug

Note: I'm fairly happy with the results, and will be doing a G2F and G8F version at a later date.  I'll post links here when I upload.  I also plan on releasing some of my other creations in the future as well, so look for those soon, too! :D  I'm up for requests on where to start with my current dynamic library, so if you see something I've tagged as "marvelousdesigner" ask and I'll try to get it configured and uploaded in the order I receive requests.

Looks nice but I cannot figure out where to put the files - all I get is square blocks and an error message :(

So, a little confession here, this is one of the first clothing items I uploaded for use with Daz.  So, it doesn't include most of the refinement of my later freebies...  The G3F_OSD_dforce folder can go anywhere you want (as long as you can import it into Daz), but the support files it calls (the contents of the soup-sammich folder) need to be in C:\Users\Public\Documents\My Daz 3D Library\data.  Just copy/paste the soup-sammich folder (contents included) to the path in the previous sentence.

If you want to be able to get to the Dress easier, you should place the G3F_OSD_dforce folder in the following path (you'll need to add a folder, though), C:\Users\Public\Documents\My Daz 3D Library\People\Genesis 3 Female\Clothing\soup-sammich

If you copy/paste the G3F_OSD_dforce into the previous path, you should be able to load the file through the Content Library tab in Daz.  You will need to parent the dress to your figure after loading the file, though.  I didn't know how to save any wearable presets back then...  I should probably update this...

That was my first thought when I saw what d’force could do. It doesn’t require a LOT of effort to convert an .obj file to a d’force cloth, when compared to a standard conforming cloth... Much easier with better results! :D

There’s a little more involved, but it’s not terrible. And it simulates MUCH faster than the old dynamic cloth.
1. Update Daz to 4.10
2. Download and install the files in the .zip just like any other clothing item.
3. I used the Merge function for testing, but however you get it into the scene should work. Fit it onto a G3F figure.
-3.a Pose figure. I had the best results when I started with the T pose, moved forward my time line 1 second, posed the figure, then added 2 seconds to the timeline. That thought is what I’m basing this quick walkthrough on.
4. Depending on what layout you have, you’ll either have a “Simulation Settings” tab in Daz, or you’ll need to find it. It’s under the Window option in the toolbar. I forget the name of the sub-option, but it should be the results of the second option in the dropdown.
5. You should see a new tab (either as a floating window, or mounted somewhere on the interface) marked as “Simulation Settings”.
6. If everything I made functions as intended, then in the selection pane on the left of the tab should say Environment and (something else I forget at the moment). Select the option that is NOT “Environment”. You should see a bunch of settings populate. There is a dropdown for “simulation window” or “simulation length” set this to something other than current frame. If the custom option is selected, ensure you set the second number to the same number of frames as your timeline’s maximum number. i.e. 1 - 90 or 1 - 30, etc.
7. Click “Simulate” and wait while it does it’s magic.
8. Render, save, upload to Deviant Art ;)

My best results were doing the simulation with just the cloth and the figure in the scene. Make everything else invisible prior to simulation.

There’s also this helpful video which explains things a little better than I do: youtu.be/OUYjiCXJ2Zk

Hmmm... It should be in the folder marked “G3F_OSD_dforce” the one that isn’t in the “soup-sammich” folder. And if you’re trying to use it with Daz’s Dynamic Cloth it won’t work. The specific tab you’re looking for is “Simulation Settings”

When you download the .zip, there should be two folders when you open it.  The soup-sammich folder needs to be transferred into your Daz data folder.  The other needs to be put somewhere memorable (like your content folder), the file you need to load into Daz is g3f_osd_dforce_by_soup_sammich-dbsczab/G3F_OSD_dforce/G3F_OSD_dforce.duf  Perform the simulation like I described, or as is available in other tutorials.  Otherwise it will look just like the "conforming" dress I made earlier.  In order to get the results from the thumbnail, you have to perform the simulation.

It should all be in the .zip download on this deviation... I’ll double check when I get home (around 10pm GMT)...
