I made a fast n easy ruff mesh of skimpy nickers and bra like out fit.
just to learn how to make cloths and see how morphs bend the bra.
The bra’s something like a plus sign.

I have watched a lot of you tube
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7abESLvn0yg
Followed this tutor
The bra pushes out away.
The nickers sink in to V5.

Help ,Thanks.

—————————————————————————————————————————————-

If I show V5 painted gray with skimpy cloths can I post a .jpgs ?

Yes, for the puposes of illustrating a technical issue like this a plain grey figure would be OK.

And it distorts the shape of the bra.

When you use the transfer tool to rig it, are you using the “reverse” option? If you model against V5, you have to reverse the clothing back to the default genesis shape. Then you could use original as the fit for V5. Also I think you may have to set the scale of the figure to 100% if you’re not modelling against genesis.

You need to load the original shape as a morph target to replace the one that DS generates. This is the drawback to modelling around a morphed figure, though with something like this it’s probably hard to avoid.

If I use Current in Transfer Utilities

As you can see in the .Jpg above once I make the bra cloths the name disappears in the scene tab.

and

In the parameters tab you get the what do I do white screen.as if the bra is not even there.

and

Edit / Figure /Morph Loader Pro
Reads
“This action requires a selection with in the scene containing geometry to continue.”

Transfer Utilities / Current is the only way I can check Reverse Source Shape From Target.
If I do not click Current I can not check Reverse Source Shape From Target.

I don’t know why it’s doing that - I just tested, in 4.5, and the name was retained. Your settings look right in the Transfer Utility.

Make sure you are using the same preset for the morph as for the original clothing OBJ.

I use the same bra.obj for the morph that I used for the cloth bra obj.
I guess that is what you mean buy preset.

As far as I can tell if your going to be a vendor you alt to use D/S Pro 4.0.3.,Right ?

Don’t know if i should use
trasphere utilaties
traspher active morph
morph loader advance

some directions or even a hit would be most helpful

I’m using D/S Pro 4.0.3

Thanks a lot

By preset I meant the option in the OBJ importer or Morph Loader that sets the scale and so on - it will be the name of an application.

Transfer utility is mainly for rigging, though it will project morphs as Transfer Active Morphs will (but for triAx figures you shouldn’t need to trigger that by hand anyway). Morph Loader (Advanced and Pro) is for loading a new shape created elsewhere as a morph target - generally a hand made moprh will be better than the auto-generated morphs.

1. pick your bra in the scene
2. save it as a DSF figure file (have to do this to get it to create the original, busted morph in the right folder)
3. open morph loader pro
4. open the original obj of your bra
5. before proceeding change the name of your morph in the little dropdown to FBMVictoria5
6. change the “make unique” setting to say “replace ERC and Morph” or something like that (sorry don’t have it in front of me right now)
7. then ok to load the morph
8. then pick genesis
9. turn off the v5 shape on genesis
10. turn on the v5 shape on genesis again - now it should read in your new version of the bra morph and look right
11. save the bra as the same DSF figure file again (maybe this step isn’t necessary but I do it just in case)

Thanks a lot.
You Tube ,Doc helps with the basics but not a lot on making content.ya get a hint here or there.I know this will be easy after I learn it.
Just hope I still have my sanity then ohh

How did you all learn this ,Is there a making content manual hidden some where beyond the waste lands ,beneath the dragons layer hidden in the center of the endless labyrinth or some thing like that ?

There is a manual-in-progress here:  http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/software/dazstudio/4/userguide/creating_content/start

Also, search youtube for bobbie25.  She’s a leading content creator and she kindly made a couple of very straightforward videos that explain how to rig stuff and put your morphs in properly.
