Has anyone noticed that offer to get 50% off “Gorgon Xtreme’s” current price if you buy it with “The Gorgon”.
I thought it was great for price then checked my cart to find out that it’s not as low as you think.
The end price should be $15.13 but ends up being $16.33.  50% off of $9.56 is $4.78 plus $10.35 equals $15.13, right?
Can any one explane how that happened?

It’s not 50 % off of 9.56…its 50% off of the original price of 11.95

Looks good Rawn, will probably be picking it up shortly.  smile

Could you (or anyone else) post a picture of just the tail? I’m interested in seeing how it fades into the body, whether it’s a transparency map or if the mesh is hard-edged.

Thanks!

The tail is geografted, so there is no edge

Sorry, let me rephrase; I’m interesting in knowing how the texture from the tail blends into the female body. Is it made to look like it’s fading via a transparency map or will the texture end rather abruptly?  It looks more like it ends fairly quickly when reaching the human body, and the first thing I’m going to try to do is to blend it more smoothly if at all possible.

Thanks again.

Well…with a 3d painting program that allows painting across UV seams it should be pretty easy to do…

I went ahead and bought it and the expansion pack, I need a gorgon tail for Genesis bad anyway.  smile  The way the texture blends into the body though…urgh, painting part of the included skin texture on the tail means that we can’t use it with other human body textures and that’s a massive pain in the butt for me.  :(

Rawn, do you happen to have your original PSDs for your textures? I would like to try and make a transparency map that allows the tail to blend into any skin texture, but I’ll need versions without the little skin area to attempt it. I plan on doing it for my own work regardless, but I’d like to be able to make something that I could share with other users if possible (and if I do it just for myself, it won’t be anything I can share since I’ll be editing the textures themselves). If not, I’ll understand though.

Thanks,


SnowS

That is an annoying limitation, but very hard to avoid with the way GeoGrafting works. I can see two options, both requiring LIE presets to be added over the top: either use a masked scale area on the lower part of the remaining Genesis body to blend into the existing skin texture (which would of course move the join up on the body) or if the tail’s upper portion had the Genesis mappings (which would require DAZ’ blessing) use a similar blend mask to transition to the scales on the tail. Tricky to set up either way.

Since Richard answered that question better than I could…I will just post some art.
