An average nerd, trying to create some more or less impressive artwork with the help of DAZStudio.
dForce updates and you!I was thinking about doing a tutorial on how to update older clothing items to dForce, but it turns out Mada has already done a really great one here:
The only thing I think she might've left out is that you don't need that little weight map token saved, it's only there for editing purposes. You save the weight maps by re-saving the clothing to the library (this will save your altered material settings as well).
There's also an option now that when you save a material to library, you can save just the simulation settings, so you can apply them over any material of a given item.
The fact that the clothing has to be fully resaved to update the weight map means I can't do a lot of free dForce add-ons for different things as I'd hoped, sadly, but it's not that hard for anyone to do, so please give it a look!
I'm not allowed to offer a dForce item in another store or as a freebie for 60 days, until the day after Christmas to be safe. I do want to offer Daz a couple of things I'v
Converting a Dress from V4 to G8F for dForceSo, vwrangler expressed curiosity as to whether the Rovescio dress for V4 might be able to be converted to G8F for dForce use. It sounded like an interesting challenge, and the dress is $2.99, so I thought I'd give it a try.
This will only work for rigged clothing. Dynamics will require a different workflow entirely and aren't very workable with current available options. I'm working on a product for that.
To go from Victoria 4 to Genesis 2 Female, I first set the dress to weight mapping using the edit--rigging option in the Scene Tab.
Then I dialed the V4 clone to 1.00 on Genesis 2 Female (making her the shape of V4). I used Transfer Utility and the "Current" option under "Source" instead of the usual clone/reverse shape from selected option. This avoided the "chunky hem" and crotch triangulation problems surprisingly well. There was some clipping in the hip area whe
GodRay tipsI decided to show how I did the GodRay in "Magic Portal". They are basically images with almost nothing written, because my english is not very good. (Even so, there may have errors in the little I wrote.) I hope you can understand how I did.
It may not work in every situation, but I hope it's useful to someone ...
You can ask if you have any questions.
