I have a problem with a skirt/outfit item that I am making for Genesis.  When I pose it with any female figure where the legs bend, the back of the skirt creases like in the picture below.  How can I fix that?  I’ve also included a zero pose pic.

You need to adjust thw eight maps - at the very least, soften the transition between right and left thigh maps by selecting polygons and using the Soften command.

Thank you for your reply.  I will try that.  I’ve never done anything with the weight maps.  Is there a good tut around on how to use the weight map tool?

Don’t have the links handy but probably over on Youtube.com. Daz3d has quite a few videos there.

For sale there is very good information to be found in these tutorials:


http://www.daz3d.com/rigging-original-figures-in-ds4-pro 
Covers a lot of beginner ground including the use of weight maps.

http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/16606/
http://www.daz3d.com/new-releases/advanced-rigging-in-daz-studio-4-pro

HU if people haven’t bought the 1st one; if both items are in the shopping cart it will go to half off grin
Info on the Advanced Rigging product page.

......................................

And for the couple of hopeful wishful thinkers ... you know who you are ... no I’m not buying these to tell you what’s in them for free.
The information I share I have either discovered myself or from the documentation pages or from publicly available sources. The tutorials in the store are by professionals.

Nice tutorial.

In post#121 you import the starter suit. Where do you get this from please?:-)

I bought it from Joequick’s store at Renderosity. From another thread in Daz forums, Joequick has closed his store so sadly this item is no longer available.

http://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/index.php?ViewProduct=87228

 

Heh, I just came across this thread. 

For anyone who wants to follow along with Patience55’s tuts, I’ve zipped up all of my various resource meshes and made them available here: http://www.sharecg.com/v/67360/view/5/3D-Model/Quicks-Quick-Resource-Meshes

There are some new remeshed versions of some of the older suits in there as well that have a more evenly distributed topology than the original versions.  We’re all always learning new things.

Sorry, I am new here. But you did say to ask…

When you say “let’s make clothing..” are you meaning let’s actually create content? (because, AFAIK clothing is a prop you purchase from the DAZ store and then stick on your figures, right?). So why would you make it? Presumably because it’s cheaper?

No, not because of price. If you’ve joined the PC club, you cannot get a better deal for clothing that the $1.99 selections!

Yes we are actually creating “content”. Somebody made the clothing items people buy in the store wink

Not everything can be made to be sold, either because of close copyright issues or because there isn’t enough demand and those selling are doing so to either make a living or augment their income ... so some of us with time on our hands make stuff filling in the gaps.
Some people like designing clothing and seeing their ideas come to life on a model.
