That’s quite a group, how long did it take to put it together?
Several hours over this past weekend. I changed my mind about several things while I was putting it together. That doesn’t include the clothing conversions - I had done them a while back - I LOVE WARDROBE WIZARD!!.
I put it together in sections. Support, then Tactical, then Cmd/Nav, then Engineering. I pulled up the Bridge base & positioned each section, deleted the bridge base & then saved as a pz3. In the end, I loaded the bridge base again, added the ceiling & lights & then brought in each personnel section and finally added the lights.
It took 3 tries on the rendering due to a problem I was having with the pants texture on Lt Griffin (Apollo Maximus)
The scene goes about 3.7 Gb in real memory, & another 4G in Virtual memory.
It is a pain because PoserPro 2012’s gui gets erratic once you go over 3Gb in real memory. SM is aware of the issue & they are trying to track the problem down. Memory isn’t the problem - I have 22Gb in my MacPro, I shouldn’t even be using virtual memory, my swap file is 4.7 megabytes - I am finding problems that people with 8Gb or less don’t see. As an example, no matter what I set my bucket size to, I can’t get Poser to use over 6Gb of real memory. Same amount of time & memory whether I have bucketsize of 64 or 1024.
The next part is to get everyone in positions. I will do a port side, a starboard side & a front/turbolift view side. That way, I don’t have to have more than 5 people in each scene and with the canned scenes I just have to change poses, expressions & camera views.
And more characters & meshes coming:
Von der Tann’s Legal officer <LtCdr Lorraine Bertrand> - Kez character mesh
Starfleet CNO Adm. Yamazaki - Rikishi character mesh
Vasco De Gama Commander - Kayleigh McFarland - Alyson 2 (Anastasia) Mesh
