When loading a skin on my genesis figures with the new Subsurface Toon Shaders in daz 4.6 I get this message:

missing file
/data/Age of Armour/Subsurface Shaders/AoA_Subsurface/AoA_Subsurface.dsf

Searched my entire windows pc, but AoA_Subsurface.dsf is no where to be found.

I downloaded and installed 16297_SubsurfaceToonShaders_1.0_trx.exe.

Tried reinstalling, installing in a seperate folder to see if the installer was maybe drunk, but still no AoA_Subsurface.dsf.


I’ve installed 100’s of content .exe’s and this has never happend before, who knows what the problem is?

Thanks in advance

I have downloaded every file to the same location , my Daz content file,  but all that I have found is whats in the attached pic. This is the same file that I save all downloads to and usually works fine, I have checked and rechecked, even downloaded again. The base thumbnail and guide thumbnail are the only parts that show. Is there somewhere else these should go?

Thanks,
Mj

Look in the Surfaces tab under Material Types. You will see a list of shaders there.

No, wilmap means in the tab with the label ‘Surfaces’, not in content.

You have exactly what everyone else has, there are no seperate icons.  Apply the shader, then move to the Surfaces pane, and you will find loads of extrra parameters added, as shown below:

You have to install the Shader Base first which will be in your account as it comes free with Daz Studio but not installed with Daz Studio

The shader comes in the LIGHTS and Shaders package now. Be sure you have installed it.
