I exported the hair back into daz 3d and I get this error anytime I try to render the hair at the best quality.  If I render it at 3,2, or 1 quality the hair looks like crap and just a few lines here and there.  Am I doing something wrong?  Or how do I fix this?

What density was the hair set at?  And what number of hair did you export?

Also, to other folks…

I am making some anime styled hair presets, and when when i change the head shape of genesis very much (as with Aiko or hitomi or mavka) it messes up the styling.  Currently I was working with 50% Hitomi, 50% Satsuki but I could probably change it.

Keepin the shape relatively simple what base anime genesis shape would you prefer?

For folks not using genesis I could also do an Aiko 4 version. We’ll see if anyone likes it I guess….

Keeping in mind that to change position, as its a long hair style, you’d have to manual restyle it- but that’s teh awesomeness of LAMH anyway. :D And the way I set up the anime hair style is very easy to quickly restyle. smile

As Alex said in a previous post:  Seeing our toy being used is the greatest reward.

BTW, that cat render made me do a double take.  Very nicely laid out.

Kendall

Thank you Kendall.  Glad you both liked it! smile  Couldn’t have done it without LAMH….......wink

WOW that cat image, my 2 year old, who just learned to say cat (in English AND Chinese, ha) was THRILLED with it! he saw it on the screen as I’m reading the thread and he got all excited and kept saying “Cat! Mao Mao! Meow! Cat! Mao mao! Meow!” repeatedly and if I switch away he just says it more insistently/demandingly! Oh dear… smile he thinks it is pretty realistic. raspberry he seems to love cats currently though he hasn’t ever seen one up close (I don’t know anyone with a cat).  Fantastic render btw!

Aw thanks Cymbidium! I just printed it out and gave it to him… he’s sitting on the floor petting the picture and meowing….. HAHAHA.  It’s so adorable, wish you could see it!! I hope he doesn’t ask me for a real cat, we can’t have pets where we live… The picture will have to be enough for now!! raspberry

You’re so very welcome!!  Aren’t they adorable at that age - I remember well when my two boys were little and oh so cute! They’re grown men now…..smile......no longer cute, but still nice to have around (most of the time, lol).  Maybe you could get him a toy cat instead of a real one?  wink

1.  The OSD does not activate, when pressing space bar in styling mode when the comb function is active.


2.  The OSD is activated if I hold down CTRL (scale) or Shift (Cut), but the OSD window obscures the brush, so if I adjust the size of the brush downwards, I can’t see what size the brush is while adjusting it.


Can you confirm if these two are intended behaviours please?

Hi, we are probably going to change the way the OSD works in upcoming update, however if you hold the space_bar it should indeed popup. Are you sure you don’t have any keyboard/keystroke resident software that perhaps is interfering with that?

Hi Alessandro, thanks for the response.  There’s definately no keystroke software etc.  The OSD works ok on my Mac install, but not on the Windows one (64 bit Studio 4.5.1.6 and also 4.5.1.56)


Is it possible to have the brush size and intensity sliders placed in the right hand control panel so they are permanently visible?

Oh he does have a toy cat, that sings raspberry It runs around on wheels… only one of the wheels broke recently so cat is no more.  He loved that cat tho, its what got him walking :D He’d hug it and pet it. hehehe.  Er I suppose i would be correct in saying he no longer has a pet cat.  I should see what there is now for a 2 year old.

When my youngest Grandson was born I found a place where you could buy a stuffed toy with a personalied “talk box” inside, so you could send a message with the toy.  I had a Fluffy cat made for him, with a “Love from Grandma” message on the Squeak box,  and he loved it, wouldn’t be parted from it.

Hi Rhale, even if you are the first user (and only, to my knowledge) to report such issue, me and Kendall will certainly address this in the upcoming update.
