This is a Gumdrop. Crapola, now I’ve lost the top of her hat. She has feet, but the outfit didn’t come with shoes so I guess the skirt covers them. Gumdrops seem to be fairly simple, so I’m practicing with them. Not as much to screw up. If I do manage to get one in a pose that I like, how do I save it? As a scene?
Good Lord, she’s so big. Maybe I chose the wrong jpg because I rendered, took her to PSP and cut. Back to the drawing board.
Okay, found the problem. The small version was in the wrong file.
Is Gumdrop free or do I need to buy her? I’ll get her if I must, your one of my Peep’s. I’ll walk you through whatever I can help you with my dear. Just point me to a link and I’ll buy or download. I’m here for you Anne.
P.S. It might be off and on but that is my life right now. Off the net and the on the net. That’s just the way it is with me, in bed resting or on the PC playing. I never know from one day to the next.
Jeff, the Gumdrop is a very simple figure compared to what you are used to. Please don’t go buy one just to help me. You can probably help me through without the figure. For example, what happened to the top of her hat? I suspect that has something to do with camera. I didn’t use one I don’t think. Or any lights. Just put the clothes on, saved as scene. Reopened and rendered.
Tomorrow I’ll play with posing a nudie and send you what sliders I have. The original ‘Drop has been remapped.
I like your schedule—maybe I’ll nap, maybe I’ll work in the yard, maybe I’ll be on the computer. I will have coffee and ciggies.
Haha.. I don’t normally do the cutesy stuff myself, but sometimes I just can’t resist making exceptions (although I don’t own Gumdrop, Cookie, or Chip).
I have a 7-yr old grandson who is into cartoons, along with robots, dinosaurs, and dragons. Oh, yeah, space too. What can I say? He’s a Gemini. My oldest son is a Gemini too, so I’m used to it. He wants to make some animations this summer. Granddaughter #1 (a college junior) is into manga and anime. I have a lot of Toon stuff, but no Cookie or Chip. I have Sam and Sadie and some of that Toon Generation stuff. I’m through with Genesis for a while and concentrating on kiddie stuff.
You just cropped off the top of the hat dear. It was out of the render frame. I’ll teach you how to set up your camera and anything else you need. Just tell me which ds your using so I can do the same. I think I have from DS2 all the way to DS4.5.
@Anne- I’m in the same boat. Tastes all over the place. I’m a horror loving, gamer girl; our 15 year old daughter is the same with manga and anime thrown in; and our 11 year old is a girly girl and we have no idea where she gets it from. I’m thinking from somewhere on her mom’s side.
With regards to posing the little gummy one, I know there’s a way as I’ve seen pose packs for her, and I believe she comes with some. Maybe if you select a portion of her body (either through the viewport or in the scene tree) you’ll find bend/twist/rotate/etc dials under the Parameters tab in General.
@Jade- How did you manage to get 4.5 to run along side 4? Do you have it installed to a separate computer?
Just because I have it does not mean I’m using it. I could install it to one of my other PC’s but this is my Render machine. I Download all the updates. I might not run them untill I hear things I like but I do collect them for that JUST in case times.
Ahh ok. I have the installer as well, but I do not like that it will forcibly uninstall 4.0 if installed to the same machine. =/
I tried asking the question if I could install it to a different location on the same machine (nothing gets installed to my operating system drive except drivers/security), or even a different hard drive safely, but received no answer. I’m wondering if the forced uninstall only happens for those people who leave installers on default and allow it to do what it wants.
Nope I’ve read that it will eat 4.03.47 or any other DS4 because they will try to share the same CMS. I’m only held back by one plugin but I’m not ready to give up my Reality 2.0 just yet. If it was not for it I probably would install 4.5. I’ve heard some nice things about speed and the updated Autofit.
Sorry Anne, just sharing some info. I’ll be on topic when you post again. I promise.
