Jad, I can’t thank you enough for this grin  It takes me back to my days as a cameraman cheese

Some quick renders of how useful it is on something I’m working on. Working title is “Supplication”.  Need to add morphs to fix the kneeling figure and have done light and material test in Reality.

Your system improved the composition and that’s just an initial use LOL

Thank you so much for sharing this and you totally rock!

EDIT:  The new composition is also much better because it’s now composed against a diagonal tongue laughcool smile

The first one looks a little unfinshed…almost like you grabbed a still half way through a pan/zoom operation.  It’s almost there, but not quite…

The second looks like a finished/planned/posed shot…

Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

It just means it’s expensive.

Thanks mjc smile 

The second isn’t finished at all by a long shot; I need to figure out how to make the morphs work so Diana’s legs look like they’re really bent and then there’s the matter of her heels and backside and the boots and the floor of the temple. confused

I could have her go barefoot, to show respect…

Just a quick question, and I’m not sure how to phrase it, since I didn’t really follow the thread that prompted this much…

Technically, I use the non-DIM “My Library” setup, except I don’t call the folder “My Library.”  Is this going to cause path issues in using this?

No. As long as you install properly it should work in any DS 4.5 content folder. I just did those two because they are the most common.

Cool.  I couldn’t come up with a reason why it would, but I thought it would be best to be sure.

Thanks for this! smile

You have no Idea how it makes me feel when I see people enjoying and using this. And thank you for the examples. The only draw back I can think of now is that everyone will doing great renders. I just made it harder on myself to out do you all. LOL!!

There’s a difference between ‘growing up’ and becoming mature…my wife says I may have ‘grown up’...but that my youngest is more mature.

Thanks so much for this well thought out and executed aid which I’m sure will prove to be very useful.

The tool size is irrelevant. It’s what you do with it…...

Lol.  I totally lost track of time this week.  Got wrapped up and forgot that I had been wanting this!  Thank you so much Jaderail for taking the time to put this together.  I can not wait to experiment!
