Hi, Hopefully someone can help me here, I’m not really a Daz user, but I use Poser Pro 2010 (haven’t upgraded to 2012 yet not sure if I will) in conjunction with other 3D apps like Lightwave, 3DCoat, Blender etc. i have bought figures and clothing from the Daz store, but I find the whole Daz product line very confusing. Alot of times stuff I buy is a waste because it doesn’t work with the character (even though it says it does) or because the resolution of the textures is too small or it doesn’t work with Morphs or is incompatible with some other addon to the M4 or V4 character (I found that in particular to be the case with “The Girl” product).
Particularly I’m having a hard time figuring out what truly works with what and how to find what I need to buy which works with what I’m using.
At present, I am working with the M4 character and don’t want to go to the next step up (which is Genesis I believe) because I want the character to work in Poser Pro 2010, work with the morphs I’ve purchased so far and basically I just want more clothing for M4. Or for M4 with the morphs I’ve applied to tweak it. So even though I click the “compatible with M4” filter on the store, after I buy and install, things like Basic Wear shorts for M4 don’t conform properly to my M4 figure when applied to it and then cut through his hips and butt. So I bought some odd 3rd party product called Wardrobe Wizard plugin for Poser which is supposed to fix things like this, but it seems like a waste of $ because it doesn’t work and seems you need to have knowledge of the products you bought like who the heck Adam or Jesse is or whatever in order to correctly apply one bit of clothing to your figure. Plus that addon seems abandoned - I can’t find any help for it. It’s all overwhelming and frankly I just want clothes on my fairly standard character I bought here.
Really I am just trying to buy clothing that is NOT fantasy, NOT sexual, or elven or S&M and is just basic everyday clothing—particularly I am having a hard time finding sports wear (that is not baggy basketball stuff) just basic shorts, t-shirts, selection of running shoes, sunglasses - basic stuff - but I need a variety of them. It seems there are 435 different fishnet nipple rings but 1 Basic Wear for M4?? Sorry, I truly don’t mean to sound difficult, but hopefully someone here would be kind enough to help direct me to more varied regular clothing that fits for Michael M4 and later for Victoria V4. Are there other stores that sell a wide variety of quality clothing for M4 & V4 that is normal and not fantasy, sci fi, or sexual?
Can anyone help? I really don’t want to use Daz Studio yet, because at the moment I have a workflow that works for my tools with Poser and can explore that later. So I need help finding, and buying realistic normal clothing (for sports or active athletic wear) for M4 & V4 and then making them work to fit the morphs I’ve applied to these characters in Poser Pro 2012.
Thanks for any help or guidance!
