Daz needs to show more respect to the adult entertainment industry re: 3D content.

Hee.  I remember way back when, when DAZ was so prudish they refused to offer lingerie for Vicky.  M1 and V1 had business clothing, casual wear, none of this pinup stuff.  DAZ came around, likely because that’s where the money was, and if there was profit enough in pr0n, I’d guess they’d…get on top of it, as the OP said.

Credit cards really are the problem, not some kind of backlash against Poser porn.  I remember when one well-known artist had the store at his personal web site shut down because the credit card companies took offense at a free tutorial he had which showed Posette’s naked polygons.  There was really nothing to see - it was all wireframe.  But they made him put fig leaves over the naughty bits before they restored his store.

Credit cards aren’t really the problem. If they were many sites would not be in business. It is possibly a challenge for those who use certain credit card processors that do not allow for such content, but I can assure you can have a site that sells adult content and accept vista and MC. Not sure about the rest of the cards.

But yeah just look online and see how all those adult sites take payment, its via credit card. But those sites are big dogs who use real credit card processing companies not some ultra small business/hobby level credit card solution that only cost a few hundred a year.

Obviously, it’s possible since there are certainly plenty of paid pr0n sites on the net.  But it’s expensive.  Not least because chargebacks are a huge problem with such sites.  People buy a subscription, see what they want to see, then claim they never made that charge.  (Often after the wife sees it on the credit card statement.)

Actually, that’s available on “that other render site” too. red face

One way to gauge the market for something is to go to a large retailer that has an adult DVD section and look at the product mix. One large retailer I go to has an adult DVD section on one aisle. I would say roughly 1/4 to 1/3 of that is animated in the Anime or Hentai style. I haven’t checked lately, but I don’t think much of that is rendered ... yet. Online, there are tons of sites that offer just about anything. Again, there are probably a lot more involving paid actors or “amateurs” than there are 3D.

I’ve seen some incredibly good 3D erotica. I’ve also seen some incredibly BAD 3D erotica. The good stuff always involves real effort in 3D modeling, textures, lighting, posing, you name it. Good work takes talent, technique, and effort. That’s universal, regardless of subject.

I found another two bob (two bob is a slang reference to pre decimal currency and equivalent to 20 cents and the expression refers to the opinion being worth about 20 cents) so here goes.

I often say “follow the money” if there was no money to be made with porn there would be no porn industry. I uses the word “Porn” here to be the widest possible scope, so anything from a topless pose to the most outrages image possible because the description porn is in the eye of the beholder.

On reading the other posts, it seems my search engine needs to be taught some new tricks, Mine tends to search for tutorials and free content, not other peoples images. Some of the daz tutorials end with phrases like “experiment and see what you can do”. This experiment and try and be frustrated when it doesn’t work is all part of being creative, in my humble opinion.

As for his and her private bits, sometimes, they need to be seen sometimes not, but should be as realistic as the rest of the character.

Take V5 Genesis and bend her over.  DAZ needs to get on top of that .

Giggedy-Giggedy!

Thank you for making me laugh so hard it hurt.

This thread should have a warning not to be drinking anything while reading it.  It almost guarantees whatever you are drinking will end up all over the monitor.


It did…!

Fortunately, the drink in question was a Martini, which is almost pure alcohol (at least, they are the way I make ‘em!), so the spew doubled as a screen-cleaner.

It was due, anyway.  So thank you!

I agree that DAZ should provide bug-free and more workable *bits*, not so much that those *bits* should be exposed, but for the sake that certain items items of clothing may not have a natual flow over the affected areas.

This render was a pita, in that it took a while to find a bikini bottom that didn’t ride up.  I imagine the same issue may happen with M5, inasmuch that only certain clothing will flow properly.  I don’t have the budget for additional software to correct these issues, so the easiest and most direct way to solve the problem would be, in my foggy thinking, to create correct models (or at least separately attachable addons) that will allow ALL clothing to properly conform to the *bits*.

In renders where the model is wearing short skirts, short dresses, bathing suits and shorts, I have noticed problems similar to what “laksdfj” has mentioned.  While they are looking at their problem from the adult entertainment industry perspective, I believe that these issues impact a much wider group of digital artists.

BTW - I did check her ID and all of her pixels are over the age of 21.
