one tip that may help in Bryce, Poser or DS. In the materials or surfaces tab, If you turn the diffusion setting down to zero (black), the specular to mid and use the ambient adjuster and go up very high with it, you get a toon like look to colors. May work for some.


grin

In DS I don’t think that will work - Ambient is multiplied with Diffuse (as it should be, if it’s faking ambient light) so setting Diffuse the black will make the Ambient black too.


And Ambience in Bryce is used to make thing glow, when applied at 100%, well in B5 anyway, which is what LG and I use.  If I had applied some trans to V4 when I did that I would have hdad a lovely glowing ghost.  lol

Dollygirl, don’t worry, my friends over in the Bryce forum came up with some nice hints and tips, if I get time to play.

Well I did have a play in Bryce, using the foramt Music suggested.  I don’t think it will be a lot of good.


That’s funny!  I needed a laugh.  Or a chuckle at least.  Store things have not been kind to me the past couple of days!  I’m not in the best of moods.

Dana, It has been updated for DAZ4.0 but I don’t know about 4.5.


Thanks…I don’t have 4.5, I am not about to be a beta tester right now!

Oh goody! Now that the PC coupon is out things may quite down some and what with tomorrow being a holiday in the USA maybe tomorrow you will have some time to play.

I did this one with Aiko 3 in DS 3. Here are the surfaces settings:


Color/diffuse - 255,191,158
Highlight/Specular - 0, 0, 0
Shadow/Ambient - 255, 255, 255


The diffuse/ambient did turn black like Richard said, well…more of a rich gray. So, I just set the diffuse to a close pale flesh color.


I then removed any textures on the skin, lips and eyes. I colored the irises blue and removed the cornias,colored the lips red.


Here is what I got rendering in the toon setting.

Dollygirl, are you still looking for judges? I should have some time this month and the beginning of August, and it looks like I won’t be entering this month…

(Not only are my PWToon shaders not working, my other shaders are starting to malfunction, too. I’ve got a software glitch somewhere. Time to re-install Daz Studio…)

So are you thinking of entering? Hay should be done until August. Only berries are coming off this month (at least in Oregon that is true) so you got plenty of “time”.

Sign me up! I’m having an awful time getting stuff to work and getting something I want to show in public, Bryce or not. Studio seems to be confused as to what I’m trying to achieve and Bryce just down right refuses to play nice. So, since I can’t sing I might as well criticize…or something like that.

Thanks LG, you are on. If your muse comes back and she will you know you can still enter and we won’t let you forget to not vote for your own!
