I’m not opposed to getting the Elite shapes, and have used the texture separately; it looks natural enough. I do wonder what the Elite morph shape/head look like, since I paid for that character, but I can sculpt one myself with the other morph packages. I’ve not yet tried Marie texture on Genesis with V4 shapes, where I have the most morph options, but getting just that Marie face may take a bit of doing…
The other side of my question is on the installers and which ones to use.
I purchased another Elite Texture, Natasha, that comes with only one installer. Marie comes with six; both come with EHSS, which I’m told I don’t need. Am I losing something of the Elite Texture quality by not using EHSS? Should I apply HSS, instead? Never done that.
Overall, I have found the textures learning curve to be the steepest. Some of the learning is just not intuitive; no way to make an educated guess, and I’ve spent a lot of time trying this/trying that.
When I mentioned texture chaos, I wasn’t kidding. At one point, and I have the screenshot, I got the entire Marie eye texture file wrapped around my figure, including promotional logos, just pasted on there like that was a skin map! It showed up on a previously saved scene that was perfect when I saved it.
That had nothing to do with any action I’d taken, but it was after installing all six Marie installers. Beyond weird. I may have learned a little since then, but not enough to KNOW I’m installing the product correctly. Like a brief readme document is too much to expect for a thirty dollar product.
Three attempts to run this basic Elite Textures Marie installer question past Daz technical support have generated no response at all, which makes no sense,, and I believe my thirty day refund option has meanwhile expired. At this point, for some reason of their own, tech support has taken a no-response stance, verey unprofessional. So, I turn to the folks on the forum as the real experts.
Does anyone who has used Elite Textures Marie successfully, know which installers are for Daz Studio?
