The hair in my image with the M4 shirt is Pyrit Hair with the bangs hidden. Sadly, the morphs in it are all buggy and move parts of the hair that shouldn’t be moving. DAZ has pulled it from the store and have said they will not fix it (per Mantis bug report comments).
Wow I am glad I got it before it was pulled, I never have issues using the hair but I have never tried anything beyond basics with it either. I think pulling it from the store might be a little extreme, just admit that it has a bug and sell it for a reduced price or even free. I think it is a nice looking hair style straight out of the box which is why I bought it in t he first place. Is it still in our downloads if we bought it before or is it gone from there too. Hehe I just haven’t checked myself.
The files for the hair are still there in your library which is good..
I’m totally ticked that the Pyrit Hair was pulled and no announcement was made. That’s the hair I promoted to folks on my Art Studio thread. Hmmph. Well, fine. I’m going to do it’s own separate post so other people who aren’t into V6 (and won’t be reading this thread) will know it’s been pulled.
Nothing dramatic here. This is G2, with Bree skin and SSS 50 shader, using IG Photo Studio lights. I spun the dials a little to create “Wendy”. I added the expression with G2 Sweet Emotion, and used the head and body morph packages.
She is wearing My Vest 2 for V4, and Jeanz V4. (Please note they are NOT for Genesis1
I must say I am impressed with the realistic shapes shown during posing, which adjust better than G1 does. The curve of the back of the thigh is more realistic, as well as the neck, elbow, knee and ankles.
I am doing various poses to see how the G2 shape adapts to gravity and bends, and I like what I see.
Here’s a side by side comparison of GF2 on the left, V5 Supermodel dialed up on the right. Both are wearing Genesis1’s bikini, and both are using one of GF2’s default poses. Vicky 5 is wearing Pure Hair Catwalk, while GF2 (who looks strangely like Milla Jovovich to me!) is sporting the lovely V4 Glamour Hair. The Glamour Hair fit GF2 with no problem whatsoever. I don’t own the V4 to GF2 thingy, so I lied and told Autofit that the hair was designed for Genesis. Autofit was rather obliging, and gladly went about fitting the hair in place perfectly on the first try.
Lighting is Dimension Light, default shader on both, with a render shading rate of 1. I adjusted GF2’s height ever so slightly so as to match V5 Supermodel. I wanted to get as close to an “apples to apples” comparison as possible. My initial conclusion is that both look very nice. The one area I noticed was Vicky 5’s elbow, which looks a little too sharp to me. I purposely dialed up some fitness on both models to show off the abdominals, to see if I could notice any signifigant difference. My untrained eye spots none. I now wonder if Vicky 5 could benefit from the elbow / knee product which was recently released. But “out of the box” GF2 does appear to have better bends.
I did a comparison render also, V5 vs. V6. Used Nordic Hair and one of the V6 poses on each (which might not be fair to V5). Each is wearing her own standard bikini. Set is from the Barn Yard, lighting is one of the DAZ Dimension Lights presets.
No tweaks (except changing head pose and expression to suit camera angle…same pose controls values used on each figure)...this is straight “out of the box.”
Image 1: V5 Supermodel
Image 2: V6 with Bree Elite skin (same as V5…not the version that comes with Genesis 2 Female)
Image 3: V6 with her default skin
I’m liking V6 a lot so far. That SSS on her default skin looks a bit strong/weird, though…
Here is Genesis 2 Female…. the free model only that comes in your product library… you get these basic clothes ... the skin material….and a few poses… the hair I had already PH Sweet. Its worth downloading and playing with even if your not ready to spend money on her.
I posted this in my art studio thread but will put it here too. This is Bree (Starter Essentials?) with Udane Hair, and the Darkwood Heroine outfit. It is all out of the box, no tweaking, to see how it did. Other than one button going into her arm which is easy to tweak (and I would but this render took hours and it achieved its purpose to show the outfit and skin textures) the outfit is just a plop on, move on type thing. Love the textures of the skin and Darkwood Heroine.
EDIT: When you click to enlarge, be sure to click again and it will enlarge even more. Love that feature!
EDIT: I put scale at 100.9% and that green sleeve expanded and the “button” was fine. See spot render (only sleeve is done)
