    Hi namrettek! Im a noob rendering on DAZ , how do you set that smoke effect . the smoke color and the ashes

    look fantastic!

    Thanks

    Hey JorgeMR,

    I painted it in with photoshop.

    I used some of Ron's brushes - http://www.daz3d.com/shop/rons-detail-smoke

    and for the sparks - http://www.daz3d.com/shop/rons-particles

    I have almost all of his brushes. They are great quality.

    If you don't want to paint in smoke you can also use -

    http://www.daz3d.com/shop/atmospheric-effects-cameras-for-daz-studio

    I often use the effects camera for depth so that I can paint smoke in layers.

    I really had a WTF!?! moment with this supersuit UV mapping.

    The legs.

    I mean, WHY are they mapped with V going UP the left leg and DOWN the right. They're not even anti parallel - V is pretty much straight along the left leg and U is around it, but the right leg ...!

    With all the shaders that are being pushed with the suit you'd think someone would query this, as it messes up using any that are directional as shown in the attached picture.

    Please, someone with the knowhow, do a remap with sensible UV mapping on the legs!

    You need to change the UV set to Symmetrical LImbs, its at the bottom of the surfaces tab

    Ok here it is with shadows and brighter wings ... the shadows got lightened but the wings are brighter... unfortunately rolling the feathers so that more the armor showed reduced some the brightness factor... sigh everything is a cascade, lol...
    As I mentioned in my earlier post thoughts and suggestions are most welcome

    Thank you for your explanation! Great work!, I m more on the Game Dev side so not very skilled in photoshop :down:

    Here's a basic set of templates for the Supersuit.

    http://www.ShareCG.com/v/62282/view/21/DAZ-Studio/Supersuit-Templates

    Hi jferio !

    Noob question : What are those templates for?

    My guess is that are to paint a texture using that reference and then the texture will fit the UV map of the supersuit :long:

    Spot on! The different areas on the template correspond to areas on the suit.

    Two very basic rules. You need to be careful if your texture crosses a seam (that's a join between areas). It will need to match up correctly on both sides. Also paint a couple of pixels outside any outer edge to avoid the background showing along seams.

    First try. Need to work on the lighting a bit, fur and eyes are too indistinct.

    All the images are FANTASTIC! Can't wait to get it this Friday.

    Rand, is it possible to make our own morphs and material zones on the supersuit? If so, can we have someone make video tutorials for that?

    Thanks :) That suit is really cool - I need more rendering-systems to render all the scenes I have in my head.

    I really like that. What did you use for the woman's feet? That's very interesting.

    *shows at his head* that one, which is inside that thing :P

    Using different "backgrounds"... Cargo Hold, Warehouse... too much to render in the next time, too much to keep in mind, I'll forget some of my ideas until I have the time to render them ... I think

    or if you're in the Platinum Club get 40% OFF!

    If only that were true. We aren't getting 40% off; we're getting 37%.

    I wish I was getting 37%; I'm only seeing the 10% discount, and I'm a PC member.

    Not sure if this has been answered before or not, but the issue with the varying pricing might be related to whether or not the store recognizes you as a PC member.

    Up until 2 days ago, I saw the promised price in my cart for the Pro Bundle. Then when my membership was up for its monthly renewal, I lost the price and only saw the 10 percent sale price. There seems to be an issue regarding the store recognizing PC memberships which could be the cause for the wide discrepancies.

    Thanks. I hadn't noticed that one the last time I was over at RDNA, but it is nice. Alfaseed has a LOT of nice products. Maybe when I've got a little more money...

    Heartbroken, for a brief moment this afternoon I saw the Pro Set on for $34 but it moved up to $60 when I added it to my cart...so close...

    Warren was thrilled to get his Supersuit. But his joy turned to disappointment when he discovered that muscles weren't included. Turned out you had to have your own.

    Like it. Perhaps we should try a "Not-so-superhero" thread in the artstudio forum:)

    Is that the Supersuit belt I've been hearing about? :)

    @Cagnazzo82: It looks like it. The belt/boots and cape are in the store now.

  • frogdotfrogdot Posts: 0

    Thanks for the comments. The belt I used came from Renderosity's freestuff. Search for "utility belt"

  • namretteknamrettek Posts: 0
    edited December 1969

    What happened to the cape, utility belt, and cape textures?

    They were available from the store earlier today, but now I don't even see the $1.99 category anymore...

    Actually I just noticed that if I click on the newsletter to go to the fantasy basic wear, and then hover over the shop tab then the $1.99 category shows up, and if I click on that those items are available.

    But I am scared to check out with such a buggy setup...

    They are messing with things again... Wish they wouldn't do that during regular business hours.. My cart checkout errored out...

    Interesting to note as well. All the EMail notifications I've received during this store down period now takes me to an error page even with the forums up and running. That's very odd behavior. Happened to 3 previous notifications but not this one for some reason!
