Love these cats!  Also wanted to use the new DJ Remix, so threw it all together.  (V6 HD as well as the End of Summer hair)

Also used Age of Armor’s Ambient and Spot lights.  The original render was 2000 x 2000 and rendered in about 20 min.

Very neat render.

Thanks.  smile  Read the thread, got all the right components together and am having good luck with everything working.  (Player only - the Full App still crashes for me, but I have Octane as well….so that may be the issue.)

Yes, we are still working with the Otoy guy to bring a solution to it.

Awesome!  What I do right now, is just drag whichever plugin I am not using to my desktop, then swap as needed.  smile  That works for a temporary solution….  smile

Yes, that’s the way to do it right now smile

However, LAMH Player 1.07.7P should appear in store anytime now and in a few days the LAMH full version 1.07 as well. Both versions will finally converge so that no more swapping files and other annoyances of such kind will be there.

Yea!  Tho I am using the beta version of full…. If I continue to have issues after the release I will email you the issue, and the logs.  smile  It was working great the other day - til I tried saving the file…  LOL

I need to hide the big cat’s lower jaw. Is there a way to do this? If so, how? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

With a lot of morphing, scaling and tweaking I was able to somewhat hide the jaw to do what I had in mind for this image. Here is my first trial render. Suggestions appreciated. Thanks!

Very nice render: I’d probably switch the cat to high resolution so that the mesh surface will be smoother. For the rest, very well done.

Greetings,
<ot>I knew these guys who raised a lion cub in their apartment in Silicon Valley.  Once he got to a certain size, they worked with a exotic animal range in northern California to have him live there, and they went and volunteered every weekend to be able to visit him.  A real sweetheart, but it was still disconcerting to go visit them and have this…lion cub, curled up on the floor in front of the TV with them.

They also briefly (a few weeks) watched after a young female leopard, again in their apartment, but she was MUCH more fierce than their lion.  A real firecracker, and very willing to do harm if she got upset, which was often.</ot>

This set looks gorgeous, and I can’t wait to see what folks do with it!

— Morgan

A lady who my dad did some welding work on her truck for invited us out to play with a lion cub she was caring for. It had been an unexpected delivery from a nearby zoo. Anyways, it was about 6-8 weeks old and the coolest thing. Definitely different in tempermant than a household feline. She did NOT like to be picked up. They told us it already ate it’s weight in beef daily. My daughter was just a bit over 1 year old and would have no part of it. I of course got down on my hands and knees and played with it, cause, well you know it’s not the kind of opportunity you get everyday. A day to remember. As I recall they called it, “Nala.”

Looks VERY nice.  However, the ears don’t seem to go back and that is a big thing for me.  A real cat’s ears will go back when it is snarling, attacking, etc.

Cool, Thanx for the compliment and the imput. I’m working on a modified version with just the two cats and removing the pavillion and vikki. I will keep this in mind.

Yeah, the ears do pose, you just have to do them manually…

Nice render, is this done with the Real Fur (I assume) in 3Delight?

Hi @thiostan,

I was able to get the big cat’s ears to lay back. I had to manually adjust but that wasn’t difficult. You might not be able to see that though in the picture I posted.

Edit: Never mind I just reread the postings and saw that @Jabba101 had told you the same thing wink

Hi Guys, I’m a proper newbie to Daz. I have just bought Daz Big cats 2. They are very cool, but I must be doing something wrong as I can’t find the options to make the cats roar or even just open their mouths.

Could somebody point me in the right direction. I’m sure I’m just being thick. Any pointers appreciated.
