since i don’t want to work too hard on this,

here’s are the collar-bend morphs

some clothes on the market have the corresponding side of the garment that lifts up

note that for more common arm movements you can freeze the collar bones and avoid this issue

===

in other news, the final name for the dress will probably be mcjA3BodyCon

===

the second picture shows that the UV map is cylindrical
the .obj file is built in a manner that will make it easy to create alternate UV maps

maybe i changed my mind, maybe i’ll make this type of collar-bend-morph

but there’s may be consequences,
for instance, the ‘‘cleavage’’ morph need a companion adjustment morph,
to be used when the collar bones are bent upwards (as shown in the image)

so you’ll get a tight fit, even when the arms are raised high up, but at the cost of adjusting a specialized morph.

it takes time but in the end its worth it, for the upcoming dresses too

this well-behaved CollarBend morph is a bit odd to build

i re-build the dress around the posed figure with her arm way up

when i place the dress (with no collarbend morph on the dress), the dress around the breast is pulled up and suffers poke-trough

then using the script below, i create a morph to pull the dress down and away

anyway, it works smile so we’re closer to the release but there’s still some miles left to the journey

// DAZ Studio version 4.5.1.6 filetype DAZ Script
var cbnode Scene.findNodeByLabel"jJCMrCollarBend" );
var 
cbmesh cbnode.getObject(0).getCachedGeom();
var 
drnode Scene.findNodeByLabel"mcjA3BodyconD" );
var 
drobj drnode.getObject(0);
var 
drmesh drobj.getCachedGeom();
var 
cbmesh.getNumVertices();
var 
morphDeltas = new DzMorphDeltas();
for( 
0ni++ )
{
 cbpos 
cbmesh.getVertex); 
 
drpos drmesh.getVertex);
 
cbpos.subtractdrpos );
 
morphDeltas.addDeltaid.xd.yd.z  );
}
var modifier = new DzMorphmorphDeltas );
modifier.setLabel"jJCMrCollarBendd" );
modifier.setName"jJCMrCollarBendd" );
drobj.addModifiermodifier );

worked on it a bit today, the issue is, the collar-Bend morph keeps the dress very tight when the collar joint is at it’s maximum of 50 degrees, which is great, but when the arm is midway down ( 25 degrees ) there’s poke-through, so i ... well there’s many ways to cope with that and that’s what i’m checking

it’s not advancing fast but it’s advancing smile
sorry for the waiting
here i solved the issue where the left and right collar-bend morphs were “cross-talking”

just to confirm that some work is being done on the dress
but due to various xmas reasons it’s will take more time than expected ... when was it? ... december 12th smile

here you can see that when 1 or 2 arms are 100% up, the dress has no poke-trough

before this last tweak, when 1 arm was up, the other side of the dress had some (very little) poke-trough

Bit slow coming to this thread, but glad to see it.  Your work is very, very competent and I always look forward to something new for Aiko3, who is still my all-time favorite DAZ character of any generation.  Thanks for all your hard work.

today’s turtle step, the CollarBend morph works for the 0° to 50° collar Up-Down range

the tightness of the dress at 50° is less perfect but i got rid of the poke-through for other settings

( then DS 4.5 crashed ... still suspecting it’s due to the windows7 magnifier, but i didnt lose my new script/tools )

If I was watching her doing that in real life, I would probably be a bit dissapointed, but I’m old now smile

Well done, a super effort.

it’s not here yet but i plan ( no i swear ) to get back to it soon

in the meantime, Happy New Year, and, there’s a video featuring the bodycon dress

VIDEO includes test for a hair/fur/grass generator that will probably be named mcjShaggy

giving it another go

here’s the reason of the delays

when Aiko lifts her arms up, i don’t want the dress to follow slavishly as if it was glued-on and elastic

plus, i don’t want the dress to become loosened as the collar angle goes from 0 to 50 degrees

so i’ll use, 1 collar-bend-morph plus 3 fit-morphs for angles 12.5° 25° and 37.5°

and ( finish learning ) use multi-stepped ERCs, or JCMs
