I’ve seen quite a few requests since DS dynamics was released for dynamic towels. Well, I’m happy to announce they’re done and awaiting release. There are both male and female towels for M4/V4 and M5/V5. The male towels come in two lengths. The Gen 4 versions are compatible with DS3 and DS4, and the Genesis versions will work in DS4 or DS 4.5. There are matching shaders in case you want to pair them with other dynamic items and have them match.

...beautiful. The only downside is use of the “S” word.

I do so hate to use such vulgarity, but it is what it is. And it’s to be “s**n”.

No need to worry, after this nice little item is released we’ll all know where our towels are.  wink

Hello ThespiSis,
I apologize for the OT but I was doing some research on creating readscript based INJ files for characters that utilize a blend of Morphs ++ for V4 and custom morphs created in ZBrush.  Anyway, I came across this old thread where you link to a tutorial or topic on the forum that I would like to read, unfortunately that link no longer works (http://forum.daz3d.com/viewtopic.php?p=1111105#1111105).
Is there any chance that you recall this discussion?, and if so do you know of a working link to it so that I might read it?
Again sorry for the intrusion, and thank you for any help you might lend.

Ooh! That was almost four years ago. I vaguely remember doing it, but I don’t know if it was a tutorial per se. My own custom morphs were done in DS for a couple of characters and Hex for another. I’ve never used Zbrush, so I doubt the tutorial was about that. Maybe how to insert the read script references from the INJ/REM files created by the DS script I was using into the pz2 for the pose?

I’m sorry, but I don’t remember, and I’d probably have to go searching all over again just to do it again myself.

Okay, these look amazing… but is DS Dynamics the Optitex dynamic cloth plugin or is it something else?

Yes, these are Optitex items. Fabric setting presets are included, so you don’t have to have the advanced control to use it. The basic should work fine.

This looks like a nice set. Big thanks for continuing to support Gen4 (and DS3) with dynamic clothing too.

Is there going to be an open or unwrapped version(s) of the towel(s) included? Just a dynamic prop with matching material zones and proportions (and maybe one of those watchamacallem hanging loops) would be a great addition (hair drying poses, wearing it over the shoulder, hanging from a hook or a finger, draped over a chair etc.). I guess an “open” version of a conforming towel would probably just usually be falling off after draping… smile
