Excellent work from all of you!  In the meantime I’m plugging away — below’s the composition render of my latest PCI entry, finished version up in my deviantART gallery here.

Great Render on DA. Awesome example of the use of the rule. I might have followed the Spiral with the free hand but your pose is perfect for the Line. You understand these better than I do.

I wouldn’t say I understand these better than you do — the GR tool is seriously improving my compositions, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be done even better.  In this one the g-triangles lines were my primary guides and I used the g-spiral mainly to help judge the best size for the flower & protective sphere.  But given how some elements just happen to be following the spiral?  I could’ve used his free hand to enhance that sweep without detracting much from the lines, you’re right.  Thanks!

Hi, Jaderail,

I’m a bit late to the party, but I can’t thank you enough for these.  I have them available once I get an actual render into Corel Painter, but having it in DAZ makes things SO much easier.  I don’t have to do hundreds of renders trying to get the composition right (and missing) anymore!!!  Now I can do hundreds of renders trying to get the lighting right instead! 

Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou!!!  surprised

I realize you’re busy Jad, being an admin and with a new computer on the way (or has it arrived in which case you’d be even more busy tongue laugh ). Is there any word on the update which allows the user to use 2 overlays in one camera smile ?

I’m not Fully happy with it Yet. I do have a Working Version on my PC but I’m still setting up the New Controls for both layers. Getting them to Move at once is the Issue right now. I’m trying Different things. But not happy with the Only solution so far.

I just happened to be checking the threads when you posted. I seem to have many users I never hear from. It’s broken the 600 downloads mark and is still slowly growing in use. I’m only happy so many find it useful.

It’s more than useful; it’s dead indispensible when it comes to group shots wink

Finally figured out multiple overlays can be added to the same camera red face

Thank you. I was not expecting this to be linked to in the New Users contest. I just hope some find it useful.

I’m still fighting a new more user friendly version at this time. But I need to learn more about DAZ Studio scripting before I can finish it.
