Hi all.

I recently purchased the Supersuit bundle, with a particular interest in the Fantasy Set. However, I have been having trouble getting it to do what I want it to do…

1) Is there a good tutorial on how to effectively use it? I don’t see any guides or tutorials anywhere.
2) How do you actually change the materials to a specific section? For example, if I use the Fantasy fur armor style, it defaults with a metallic chest piece. How do I change this to match the fur or leather used by the rest of the suit? I can’t seem to apply the materials the way I do for any other figure…
3) Are there any options that would do a good job of creating a bikini style outfit? Seems like the supersuit would be great for this, but I can’t find any shape styles that do this. Would be really nice for fantasy renders to create the common cheesy chainmail or barbarian fur bikini!

Thanks!

1) Have you checked this thread out? It contains links to tutorial videos by DAZ_Rand. They are based on an earlier version of the suit, but still provide an excellent way of learning the ropes.
2) There is a surface selection tool just for that. It should be right next to the universal selection tool.
3) The material zones are not optimal for creating clothing of such kind. DAZ_Rand was going to release custom material zones for this purpose, but he has since gone AWOL. You could take a closer look at FlipMode’s G-Suit, as its material zones are better suited for creating basic clothing, though I doubt you will be able to create any decent bikinis with that one either. If you can’t make either custom material zones or a custom diffuse map, you can always search the store and/or Renderosity for something that could work.
