Actually had some time to read and try some of the tutorials I’ve been collecting.

SickleYield’s “Rigging a Skirt for Genesis”
http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/viewtopic.php?t=181707

She shows how to rename the bones so that they do not move with the legs but become handles to move the skirt!

Then I tried following another person’s tutorial and when it got to the part I really needed to know about ... they skipped out! Somebody teaches that in another product and dah dah dah. Right. Well I bought that other product but for some reason the brain blows a gasket when trying to follow it so ....

Crazy idea of maybe just releasing a bunch of mesh and letting other people figure out how to rig it. No, I wouldn’t do that ... just been a long day.

Even scarier is the thought, you know one day all this might make sense. And then we’ll think it’s so easy. May we all ever learn to remember ‘not to skip steps’ because it’s not easy when you are coming from other professionals into the 3d world. Okay. Thank you.

In my sharecg.com gallery [Boudicca36] I have a little mini-tut for saving one’s own morph characters created by mixing up any ol’ morphs on board.

I’m part way through editing the images for half a tutorial on making some clothing for Genesis using Hexagon. I’ve discovered ComicLife2 can save out .pdf files so these are all 100% okay for me to post over at sharecg.com even as they go more commercial than before.

Okay, have corrected a procedural error ... don’t recall now where I picked up the idea that one could model clothing on the basic genders and that they would still fit Genesis, but they don’t. So I have redone the images and if all goes well will be reposting the tutorials over at sharecg.com.

It’s been a fun year. Wishing everybody all the best for whatever it is that transpires over the next few months. If we all survive and like, nothing happens ... April 13, 2036 I think was the next d-day. Cheers.

Thank you for your generosity!  And thanks to others who have posted with tutorials and tips as well.  We’ll always have a place to send the people who complain that DAZ “keeps secrets” about clothing creation, and the more the merrier when it comes to making great products and freebies.


Also, Patience, what were you having trouble with?  If you don’t want to post here you can always drop me a PM.

I’m in the process of working through Blondies fantastic rigging tutorial and now know how to group and use the figure set up tool. I’m still working on weightmapping. One suggestion that I would make is to read it through prior to actually following it. I misread something in the weight mapping part and had to start again from the last saved point. Reading it through prior would have stopped that from occurring…

Big thank you to the venders like Blondie and Sickle who have provided us with tutorials on this subject.

Gearing up for a little project ... everybody is welcome to join in! The more the merrier wink

Do keep in mind that as ‘fanart productions’ must needs be ‘free’ and only for use for free end results ... we’re all also learning “how to’ make clothing. So in other words, we don’t have to make the entire project passable for sale in stores. Hopefully the version of Daz Studio won’t change again in a couple of weeks and we can finish something.

I’m working in 4.0 but do have 4.5 on my laptop so we’ll see how this works too.
Modeling in Hexagon [either this or the previous version].

Genesis is the target.
So all, we get a Genesis clothing dummy ready.
And put some cylinders, boxes, circle lines, whatever together for a starter suit or use one of the available items.
Then decide which one you’d like to start with, and “post in”, okay.

I’ll give this a go, once I’ve finished working through your excellent tutorials.

Okay, getting some pictures lined up ... have to resize them and put numbers on them “just in case” they don’t appear in the correct order.

Have lined up the 6 posts, pictures should be appearing “shortly” ...

For the NX-01, what great timing, more ships!!!!

http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/14850/P120/#219695

Mattymanx has converted one ... great collection of ships going there. Thank you Mattymanx.

Start of “Let’s make uniforms” for Genesis.

n.b. At some point in time I will be putting my images together into .pdf files.

I am repeating some steps which I’ve covered in previous tutorials for the benefit of those who haven’t read them.

If steps are missed, or something is not clear, feel free to ask, that is the point of doing this in the forums grin
