    Well hopefully MNS will consider keeping the mystical fires going and do that creature pack. If you do can you add in some different tails like a Fawns tail. Some Antlers would be cool too! Thanks. Your such a talent. This is a great time for DAZ to have so many ultra talented folks embracing Genesis! Totally AWESOME!

    Holy crap. You just keep blowing my mind away, and I just put it together. So. Awesome. :bug:

    Don't worry the goat has been blowing my mind today, had to totally redo the displacement maps again, but it's all fixed up again. no seam misaligned now. He's been a real demon today LOL

    You know you're the one who put me on to the fur thing and it just grown out of control LOL.
    So people should be thanking you for pointing me that way.

    Which reminds me a few people thought this was Alessandro daz hair plugin , so just to clear it up this is Zbrush fiber mesh nothing to do with the "Look at my hair" stuff I am part of the beta testing for it and I am bound by an agreement to keep things in house till Alessandro gives the ok. So hope that makes it clear.
    Cheers

    The next project could land me in a lot of trouble I'm not even game to show a preview of it, may have to have a talk with DAZ first.

    In that case, I'll just be satisfied with the knowledge that you got something awesome cookin'!

    Well I'm off to bed, got a strange thing happening with some of the renders, doesn't happen all the time, only when I use the speed light package, these little blue square appear in the render not sure what they are? But when I turn at a different angle they disappear.

    That's Deep Shadow Maps clashing with 3Delight rendering engine. Use raytraced shadows, and they're no longer a problem.

    Good thinking Skiriki, too bad it won't be super fast anymore if goes to raytraced.

    Dunno, in my current 4.5 system, both are about the same speed. Plus, raytraced look better in my opinion.

    OMG ... OMG ... I clicked on the last render to see it in full size and I swear it turned it's head to look at me and said in a deep dark voice *buy me* ...

    :lol:

    Love it, this is so mine when it hits the store. Great job.

    I agree raytraced is better looking, but with hair I've never had it render at the same speed.

    Yeah, it can get painful with some transmaps, but fibremesh items I have had (such as that Genesis beard etc), it has been pretty much a-OK.

    Aaaah, thats a good point. I haven't used much fibermesh yet. Just have one hair item and some armpit I've never used.

    Correct. Alternatively, you can *usually* just nudge the camera angle a tiny bit and they'll go away.

    I got the same and was just wondering what it is , it only show up on my fibers , like it have to do with the specular and death digital pixels that are not rendered ..
    btw the fiber render so much better in 4.5 but little slower , overall 3Delight in 4.5 works so much more crisper and accurate especially when using uber light , well done improvement

    ok back to the amazing Goat :)

    Thanks for all the info on the rending problem. Yes uber light are a bit of a killer for render speed that's why I'm working on something like speed light so the renders can come down to 20sec not 1hour but still uber light really produces some exceptional renders, Really2 is still pretty fast at rendering the fur doesn't seem to slow down too much at all.

    I've totally remade the beard, and made 6 morph dials for it, see attached renders.
    One of the things I love about Zbrush 4R4 is how it handles vertex order, as long as
    I don't change the masking and coverages it will keep everything ready for morphing.
    I didn't even use any grooming brushes, I just generated morphs with different setting.

    One thing I have improved since the Lycan fur, is the rigging for the beard, I'm attaching the weight map to the lower jaw and not the head so you can open and close the mouth and the beard will follow.

    Your another one I'd love to have some tutorials from. You and Cath really know your way around ZBrush and it shows incredibly in your works. Wonderful work!

    OK this is the only hint I'll give, It's a genesis morph, I got him totally covered up with my hyper suit, man that reminds me I need to finish that one to.

    Here's a few shot of the textures with the Freak4 shape and I add my Genesis Wings of Darkness which seam to have matching texture what a fluke

    Well still hard at the fix ups I've added another texture a Nude dark skin. I'm also testing how cloths fit with other shapes applied, this is with the Girl4 shape and I put my Lycan hunter outfit on, I found if you use the push modifier it get rid of all the poke through so that's an excellent addition to DS4.5. What I will be doing is putting the goat in one pack and the 5 extra texture sets will be put into a texture expansion pack as there was an awful lot of work doing the textures.
