Thanks for the quick response, guys.
My first guess would be that there are mat (falloff) spheres on the arms and they are just failing to include the mesh at the end of the arm. The other possibility, if the mesh gets regrouped, is that a few polygons at the end were not assigned to the arm groups, but that sounds unlikely.
Your first guess was my thought as well. I just didn’t know what to do about it. But I’ve been given a few ideas here to tackle.
The problem on the chest could be the same, or if Simon uses magnets the way V4 does (I know some Poser figures do have joint controlled magnets) it could be that the magnets aren’t applying to the clothes, or it could even be an issue with the bulge setting or a JCMorph - it might be simplest to use the morph brush to fix that rather than fighting the rigging anyway.
The chest isn’t really a problem. Of the many simulations I ran on that shirt, that was the only time I got that poke through. And I’ve been using Poser long enough to know how to work my around that. Thanks, Richard.
Select your clothing figure, then click the figure tab at the top and click copy joint zones from figure and then select your human figure
Another thing you can try is in the morph tool select the tighten fit tool and set the goal to what ever human figure your clothing is on, then paint the bad areas with the morph tool
I will give these a shot. Thanks.
Here are a couple videos that might help in using the fitting room
What do you mean there is no version of Mimic that works with Poser? I’ve used Mimic Pro with Poser for years. Granted working with the Gen 4 figures in Mimic takes quite a bit of adjusting the animation, but it does work. Then you simply export the Pz2 file to Poser and load it like any pose file, it will add the mimic animation to what ever animation you have set up in Poser already.
DAZ no longer sells a version of Mimic Pro for a software that isn’t theirs. They have versions for Carrara and Studio, but no longer one for Poser. Now I have previous versions of Mimic I just can’t find them for some reason, so I am familiar with using Mimic and I know it has worked in my animations in the past. I’d hoped Mimic Lite would suit my purposes but all I get is an error message saying it can’t import my WAV file. And unfortunately the software only supports WAV. So essentially Mimic Pro is useless in Poser Pro 2014.
maybe import the object file and try making a dynamic simulation with the clothing??? there’s some nice dynamic T’s about the place. would look much better for a commercial project than that skin tight top.
Thanks for the tip. Sadly, I have as much experience with Dynamic Clothing as I do with the Fitting Room. While I’ve played with DC for still images, I can’t say I have the time to learn how to make it function across an animation.
Have you checked Poserworld to see what they have as well?
I did. They unfortunately don’t have anything that I can use for this project.
If the fitting room isn’t giving you the results you need quickly enough, have you tried using Wardrobe Wizard? Granted, if you don’t already have it, you will need to pick up the M4 add on at PhilC.net but it’s less than $10 and once you have it you’ll have a means to convert any M4 clothing to Poser included figures as needed.
Actually forgot about WW. It’s included with PP 2014 so it’s definitely something I should try. Thanks.
HOr has been already posted, convert the clothing to dynamic and go that route.
Like I said, my experience with DC and animations is null. And I can’t say I have the time to learn it when I have about 10 days to render a 90 second commercial.
