    I'm gonna vote for MORE CREATURES. 'Cuz clothes are a-plenty, creatures less so. :)

    Here is a quicky. I removed a lot of things to get this down to something that would render in a realistic amount of time. Here is a modified test frame from a WIP animation that became much better due to the shrieker.

    These have made the scenes so much more effective! I've modified another scene further in on the timeline so that I could test some things. As with the last scene I've removed a lot of content and SFX to get the render times reasonable. Under normal circumstances, the standalone 64bit Linux 3Delight renderer would consume huge amounts of virtual memory for each frame in this sequence. The RIB files for the full scenes are HUGE, just loading some of the RIB's for editing in 'vi' on a quad core machine can take well over a minute.


    Just FYI, Hexxus is also in use in the full sequence.


    Please keep in mind that these are very much early WIPs, and there is no postwork at all.

    Looks great so far Kendall. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    I liked the wings idea so much, I had to try on my own lol Just a quickie tho.

    I used Azraella's wings (which, if you are wanting to try this, won't conform - but u can parent them to the Shrieker)

    I guess this is an adult with its baby... and when you put it like that, how could anyone say its not cute? lol

    From the back...

    Singing REO:

    Time 4 me 2 fly,
    Ohh I gotta set myself free....


    :-)


    I tried to connect the wings to the soft tissue above their current connection point, but the poke-thru was just too obvious. So I connected them to the back plate. It's not perfect, but it does at least look acceptable.

    Is this model only for Studio 4? The textures show up fine if I load the Shrieker in Studio 4, but in Studio 3 (which I'm still using because I hate Studio 4's UI layout) it refuses to apply textures.

    Works fine for me in DS3.

    It will work in Studio 3, but you need to have the Elite Human Surface Shader installed (because the MATs have SSS) --- http://www.daz3d.com/shop/elite-human-surface-shader/

    Hmm, strange, I have the EHSS from the Stephanie 4 Elite bundle, which I assumed was the same thing, but could never get it to work properly. Looks like I'll have to poke Studio 3 a little more.

    Yeah, Ive encountered similar experiences with alpha testing and certain plugins. Like once, a Dreamlight thing had disabled another plugin from working (I guess due to a conflict with the scripting) So that's a possible avenue to look at.

    If you cant get it to work tho, give me a shout... Ill make you some mats that don't require it. They won't have SSS, but, all the shineys in the world are useless if it wont render lol

    Whew, thankfully it won't have to come to that. I hadn't updated Studio 3 since 3.1.2.24, saw in another post that 3.1.2.32 has EHSS built in, and happened to have the installer for that languishing around (tend not to bother updating unless I actually encounter a problem, but keep the installers handy just in case). Updating did the trick, and now I have a fully skinned Shrieker in my rendering window! Thanks for the help :D

    Edit: and for some reason the standard smiley looks like I'm rolling my eyes.

    Since everyone is doing renders, I decided to do something different. Sure, there's a render... but if you play D&D3;.5e, this one should work out nicely for ya. OGL, go nuts, use in any way you like.

    (FYI, if people want me to monsterify critters for gaming, that's doable, I got 12 years of experience with D&D3;.5e...)

    Hey, thats a really cool idea. And yah, right there with ya lol I decided to do something diff, and did an aged parchment page with all its characteristics and anatomy. I even rendered with sketch in poser, so it would look drawn. Its always interesting to do something a little different than a straight up render.

    The last version of DS3 does include HSS in the base isntall, not need to add it separately.
