Difficulty with Daz is no instructions !
Daz is a fantastic 3D software, but no instructions on anything. Other software I purchased came with a book or instructions in the help menu, such as I can type in various filters for definition, what they do etc..... Some have illustrations. At the moment, I am learning surface, I have no idea what any of the functions do, other then experiment by changing levels. No descriptions on any functions.
Ok, for example wanted to purchase Lucrezia from the Daz store, to create a vampire character. This is what comes with Lucrezia, these parts confuse me, so far I have evolution body & head morph.
1 Character Preset (.DSA)
1 Full Mat
6 Texture and Bump Maps (1000x1000)
1 Transparency Map (1500x1500)
2 Texture and Bump Maps (2000x2000)
18 Texture, Bump and Specular Maps (4000x4000)
DAZ Studio Material Presets (.DSA)
What are character preset? What are full mat? Texture? bump maps? Specular maps ? No definition of these terms.
Lucrezia is a beautiful vampire morph Okay cool, I know what morph does. Lucrezia is available for V5 and Genesis evolution morphs. I have evolution morph, but not V5,.
Compatible 3D Figures: Genesis Cool, I have Genesis, now can I create Lucrezia ? Can I change color of face, to white like in illustration ?
Would love to purchase products from store, but half the time don't know what is compatible, or what products do, etc..... For example, Lucrezia states vampire morph. Does not say anything about skin surface, can I change appearance of her skin, Do I need Victoria 5 to do this, etc..... In the illustration she has fangs, which comes with evolution head morph, but doesn't state that. So many people probably purchase products assuming, they will get exactly what is in the illustration. Make a purchase, then find out, Oh I need this, oh I need that.
Tamesis Bundle: Required Victoria 4.2 Morphs++ have no idea what this is, V4 Elite Body Shapes, Stephanie 4 Elite Base,.
So basically, nothing in the store is compatible with Genesis, without purchasing a ton of other products. Without V4 or V5 base, one is basically stuck, am I correct ??
So, what exactly do I need to create Lucrezia in the illustration? Youtube does not have any in depth instructions on content or software use. Thanx.
