I’ve been designing a pair of high heel shoes for Genesis.
My figures have 7 material zones and I have created 30 dsf material files (times 2 for left and right shoe) plus one set of dsf files to put one color on all 7 material zones at one (times 2 for left and right shoe).
This gives me a total of 480 material files.
Now I am about to create Meta Data and it struck me that I don’t want to have 480 materials and 17 pose files cluttering the presentation of the 2 product icons in the Smart Content Pane of the main product. But maybe that’s only me?
What better than to create a poll
If I could have it my way (and I don’t know how or if it’s even possible) I would want to have ONLY the 2 product icons in the main product view (and shortcut icons to the material and pose views). The materials should ONLY be visible in Presets>Materials>Product view (together with shortcut icons to the pose view and maybe the main product view). And finally the poses should ONLY be visible in Presets>Poses>Product (together with shortcut icons to the materials view and maybe the main product view).
So the question is what do you prefer?
Make everything visible in Smart Content, I don’t mind the added clutter!
Add ONLY the figure, poses and the one materials that set all 7 materials zones to one base colour!
