I agree, it really shows the potential of the product.  AND it makes me want to try my first Lux render after upgrading to DS4.5…I’ve been too lazy to get it up and running…and too busy buying product while grumbling about this year’s PC sale wasn’t as good as the one before…which wasn’t as good as the one before…which…%-P

Regarding the fur, I strongly advise you to avoid raytraced shadows or high quality ambient occlusion with uberEnv wink


Same with pwSurface2 using AO.

I did not bother to test and see how long mind you, I just got impatient and stopped the render.

You can bypass the ambient occlusion on the “fur trans” material with the UberSurface/UberHair shader. You can either override the shading rate ( Occlusion Shading Rate Mode: Override” for this material ( and use a higher value to speed the rendering up, like 128 ) or turn the AO computing off ( “Occlusion: Off”. That way, only the shadows will be calculated for this material. It works faster with soft shadow-mapped shadows but soft raytraced shadows are possible as well.

With pwSurface2, you have to turn the “Visible in Occlusion” value to “off”.

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.

Just bought Victoria 6 and Santa Baby… here is my question… How do I fit the boots on Victoria 6? The autofit doesn’t work and I can’t find a way to scale the boots in order to make them fit. Any idea?

You could possibly fit other boots to v6 and then turn off the surface for the Santa Baby Leather. The fur is a separate surface than the leather so you can hide the leather by turning the opacity down. This will leave the other boots showing with the fur fringe from the Santa Baby boots.

Another option I have used on other clothing and hair is to fit the boots to a v5 in the same pose and location as v6 and turn the v5 visibility off as well as the the visibility of the v6 feet.

These are all workarounds and the latter won’t help if you are doing animation but if you are in a bind and just need to get a render done it works.

Finally solved the Problem!

1) Loaded the boots
2) Loaded V6
3) Posed and resized V6 limbs so they fit in the boots
4) Used the “Transfer Rigging (Figure space)” from V6 to the boots
5) Then “Fit to V6”
6) Applyed the “Poke-Away2! for Genesis 2 Female(s) by: xenic101”-Morphs for a perfect fit

Done! grin

Did the same with the wrap, PERFECT!

Used “Poke-Away2” for the Dress, PERFECT!

Made two Versions, one for V6 and one for Olympia, they both turned out beautiful.
