Are You Going to Help?

Looks like Michelle will be cleaning the attic by herself.  Mostly a clothing conversion test with the WW support for MyMichelle, so as usual, mostly just fun.

The early stages of something I’m considering for the next Dazaholics contest ... although if I do go forward, I’m probably swapping out G2 Simon and Antonia for Genesis figures.Riki and Behemoth don’t matter so much, but Antonia and Simon are kind of a pain. Pity; I really like the SF Toni texture for her. (It also turns out that the only thing more difficult than finding manageable conforming clothing for Antonia Standard that will work in Studio is finding ANYTHING for a G2 male. All I wanted was a normal pair of briefs to retexture into a swimsuit, and as far as I can tell, they simply don’t exist. Neither does a swimsuit. Briefs that would get me a TOS violation, on the other hand….)


Anyway: Secret Agent Antonia, her crew, and the corpse at hand. Or foot, as the case may be. He died hard. Very hard.

Nicely done.  You don’t say what version of Poser you have, but Simon came with a pair of regular brief type swim trunks.  If Poser 7, you’ll find them in Props/ Poser 7/  P7 Male Clothes/  Poser 7 Casual.  Even though they are in the props library, they are conforming swim trunks, though I don’t use DS so I can’t tell you whether or not DS will recognize them as such or not.  Can’t help too much as far as Antonia Standard goes, I use the weight mapped Antonia and since I use Poser, the conforming clothing that has been made for her works, but there is a fairly high percentage of dynamic clothing for her.

Thanks!


It would never have occurred to me to look for conforming clothing in Props; I’ll have to check and see what’s there. The version of Poser that I have is just Poser Debut, which I picked up for free during one of the Smith Micro promotions. It came with 20GB content, which seemed a pretty fair deal for something that didn’t cost me anything, and I purchased a bit more when they went on sale. I’ve briefly debated buying Poser 2010 when I’ve seen it on sale, but I’d only be getting it to do a very small range of things, so it hasn’t really seemed worth it to buy an outdated program—and 9/2012 haven’t been discounted enough to seem worth it. There was one pair of similarly sized shorts that came with Debut in the figures; I tried putting them on Simon and they went all explodey and spikey. The ones I finally could use came from Poserworld.


As far as I can tell, the big problem with conforming dresses for Antonia is that most of them seem to have been made for Antonia 1.2 and not for Antonia Standard, whatever version she is. Judging from the reaction of the dresses, between 1.2 and Standard, they reoriented her hip and nearby bones, so whenever you conform a dress to her, the skirt suddenly tilts at a sharp angle and can’t be un-tilted without serious deformation. The Volatile dress from RDNA—what she’s wearing in my render—is the only conforming dress I’ve found for Standard, and the only one that doesn’t go all tiltawhirl when it’s fitted to her. I like her, but she really is quite Poser-specific, which is understandable. Amy Aimei has made a few attempts at weight-mapping her for Studio, but it doesn’t seem to have worked as well as she hoped.

I still have Poser 7 through PP2012 installed, but I only use PP2012 for the last year now.

Today we have MyMichelle again, this time with thanks to NanetteTredoux for another nice free skin.

I went plowing through the Poser Debut Content folder and found the swim trunks under Props, along with a really startling amount of conforming clothing. However, because Poser used PMDs with wild abandon, they can only be properly conformed either in Poser or in DS3 with InjectPMD—and only DS3 will give you a file that you can then use in DS4, because the PMDs remain separate in Poser. (On the odd shot that its helpful to someone else: What I’ve done with some figures is to inject the PMD in DS3, save the file, open the.DAZ file in DS4, then export the fully morphed/conformed character to .CR2 in DS4.) Simon’s swim trunks themselves are weirdly high in front and weirdly low in back, but they’re still better than what he had before.

I tinkered with the image a bit and rerendered. I’m beginning to think that I’ll keep both Antonia and Rikishi for the final image, but not Simon G2 Nash or Aravind for Apollo Maximus. And Antonia Standard is tricky in some interesting ways; she has the worst bending shoulders I’ve seen. Which, considering how badly Rikishi’s shoulders bend, is saying something, especially since he’s a much older figure.

Anyway, version 2 of the image, with Simon properly re-trunked and Aravind added in just for the heck of it. Behemoth’s position tweaked a bit, and the floor of 1002 Nights retextured with a carved ebony shader from Fabricator/Totally Bazaar, of all things, to provide higher contrast with Behemoth.

You’re not by your self, Evil Gidget. I still check in quite often. I just don’t have internet access at home anymore right now and so I do what I can every few days.
