Well - I am using Foxit Reader ...
But I have to scratch some money together.
Not being able to use my PC coupon for half of the price is making things difficult.
But as I like DS AND Poser I would like to be able to use this doll in both ...
*goes hunting for pennies behind the couch*
And I think your tutorial is worth the full money, I am just not the wealthiest person.
Oh, I hear you both on the pennies situation (don’t forget to look down the sides, and even under the cushions - they’re your best bet in my experience) and on the fact that the PC coupon doesn’t apply to PA items. I have a sneaky suspicion that I’m not the only PA that’s… not entirely happy about that change, shall we say? It’s affected my purchases for certain, so I expect it to affect sales of the tutorial adversely :(
The most interesting part for me is the clothing of Genesis. How are the expirience with the tutorial and clothing in Poser?
Clothing is one of the larger challenges with using Genesis in Poser. Which is why a fairly large chunk of the tutorial is devoted to clothing topics - from page 29 to 48, inclusive.
I can’t promise it will make all clothing and hair work easily - it won’t. But of those I’ve tried, it’s helped more than it hasn’t except on the default Genesis shape (which doesn’t need so much help anyway).
Thanks for your fast answer. But what about shapes like V4 (or is this a default?)?
It’s so bad that this genesis sale ends today, so there is so much pressure on my decision :-(
V4 isn’t default, but is fairly close to it. The tutorial isn’t based around any one shape - it should be as useful for getting clothing to work on the V4 shape as it is on the Mr Hyde character.
Here’s one of the promo scenes redone VERY quickly, with both M5 and V5 changed to V4, a python script included with the tut run on them, and two areas of poke-through quickly fixed before rendering, as documented in the tut.
I can’t speak for all clothing - in fact, I had to buy some clothing specifically to produce these promos (I didn’t own a bikini for Genesis). How well the clothing will work in Poser will be a combination of factors, including the clothing itself.
Here’s another quick one I’ve thrown together from an existing promo - again I’ve changed V5 to V4 and run my script, but I haven’t done any extra poke-through correction before rendering even more quickly (I’m dishing supper at the same time lol)
One more question: does your tutorial deal with Generation4/Generation3 clothes on Genesis too?
Not at such, but once you’ve used the transfer tool to convert clothing from Gen4/Gen3 to Genesis you should be able to treat it just like any other Genesis conformer, and convert it back to Poser for Genesis in the same way as described in the tut.
I’ve also discovered that I’ve been falling into a similar trap as eveyone else and pushing the “extreme” that Genesis is capable of whilst underplaying (or not playing at all!) the human side - especailly kids. This is a “several seconds” render of Genesis as a kid in Poser wearing the “adult” JS pants and top. I haven’t done any poke-through correction or material settings changes that I’d normally want to look at - just loaded up Genesis, hit the “Kid” dial, applied the clothing and run my joint-fixing script.
3rd Prize A DAZ Original Starter Bundle (I think they are all listed HERE but there are some extras that show up, so be sure it says “Starter Bundle” in the product title and is a DO)
Obviously, since you’re interested in Genesis ANYWAY there’s a possibility that you already have V5, M5, or indeed both and a slew of extras… so if you already own the listed prize you will be able to swap in any DAZ Original of the same or lesser value.
