Hello,

I really like the SG pantyhose. Very fun to work with. Fit much better than others I’ve tried. One little problem, I get some panty hose poking through the Turtleneck sweater dress. See the image. I could turn off visibility for the hip and pelvis, but would prefer a different method as that leaves the crotch uncovered. Do you have any thoughts? I have tried a number of the morphs without success.

DS 4.5. Genesis. Turtlenck dress.

Thanks,
Jim

For that render, dial opacity down of the material zones of the waist and upper part of the leg on the pantyhose instead of making the hip\ pelvis group invisible.. Since its not an upskirt shot, you can hide certain parts of the pantyhose that are causing the pokethrough by dialing opacity down on the desired material group on it.

Zev0, Thanks for the reply. I was able to solve using collisions and iterations, but dialing down the opacity is a good idea too. Will use that in future.

Cool:) You can also use the polygon selection tool and hide selected polygons on the pantyhose instead of dropping the opacity of an entire material group. So you can just hide small areas where poke-through occurs, alternatively just apply the deformer tool on the turtle neck and pull that area out slightly till the poke-through disappears. So yes, there are multiple ways to solve the issue:) Me I just use the clonestamp and postwork in Photoshop lol.

Sheer greatness is just that.

Tried a bunch of shaders, but can’t get a look that I want. Really glossy tights have a linear highlight that is narrow, but runs nearly the length of the leg. See the image. Playing with glossiness and specular were unsatisfactory. Tried some chrome shaders, but the legs looked like finely polished metal. Do you have any suggestions? I am happy to buy shaders to get this effect.

Thanks,
Jim

We struggled to get that thin shine with the shader in DS. Only way to get that look is if you assign a custom reflection map. The Sheer Leggings addon has one as you can see below. I am still going to release a mapped pantyhose set addon and that will have proper reflection. I was also like “bleh, we can’t get that result”, so when time frees up I will hop onto it. If we find out how to do that with the shader that will be even better.

Thanks for a lightning fast reply. Will play with some lights tomorrow. I had some success with Poser 2010 using anisotropy. Don’t know DS well enough yet to cook my own shaders from scratch. But, learning fast. Will let you know if I can make anything work.

BB released the perfect pantyhose shader for Poser and gives that result you want. It was just hard to find those similar funtions in DS. I’m sure they are there somewhere lol.
