The first pass at an idea I had that wouldn’t leave me alone. This is just the preliminary setup; even with the forum able to cope with larger images, the final one is too long for here.

From left to right:
- Smacky by Snow Sultan, GenX’d, a combination of both her A4 and V4 morphs (pure A4 eyes in a mostly realistic texture look really strange to me) and also the +15 head from the V4 Maturing Morph Pack (also GenX’d) by Tempest to make Smacky look like the oldest; wearing leather jacket by Smay, GeniTanktop by Silverelf, BO Outrage jeans, WM Cowboy boots, and Romana Hair by SWAM; gun from the Stalker Girl set by Smay;
- Tyrese M5 Hero, Marcelo head (... mostly) by JS Graphics/Male-M3dia/ForbiddenWhispers, wearing DZheng everything (except the glasses, which are the ancient DAZ morphing glasses);
- Shanti V5 by Adam Thwaites, wearing the Doctor Professional shirt and skirt from DAZ, Sickleyield Classics suit jacket, PB Ballerina flats, and purse from the Summer Dress set by DAZ; gun from the Stalker Girl set by Smay

Oh, and Fabricator used with wild abandon on everything the women are wearing except the leather jacket, I think. (I’m not entirely sure Shanti’s clothes quite “go”, if you see what I mean, but nobody ever said I had an eye for women’s clothes.)

The final version of this is on my deviantArt page (and is actually an entirely worksafe image! imagine!)

EDIT: Also, it occurred to me that a touch of context might be needed for some who, alas, may not remember all the sheer fabulosity (or who may not have been around for it)
- Context the first (and also this—I’m kind of shocked that’s online, actually)
- Context the second

Thank you! It’s 64 bit. But otherwise, it’s pretty crappy: single core, 3GB RAM, 1.6 GHz.

That does it then for me, because I know that since upgrading too the 4.5 pro version on my 32 bit PC, I seem to be having more fatal error crashes without even using a quarter of the figures that you used to make your render. And my 32bit Pc is suppose to be a QUAD core pc.. Mind you when I purchased my PC I had no idea about the 3D world…...........

Hey.

Thanks for this post. I followed some of the links to great characters, and purchased a couple.

I have a question, for anyone with experience with Daz3D’s Elite Texture Marie. I’ve tried installing it several times, but am confused by the number of installer files.

3 of them are, I now think, only for Carrara, and shouldn’t be installed for Studio 4.5.

2 others are label 1 & 2, and they install fine, but there is at least one additional installer, that also calls itself the “install program” for Marie.

I had some very bizarre texture things happening when, being new and not knowing any better, I installed all the above, and texture-chaos ensued!

I’ve since reinstalled, just the non-Carrara files, and ignored the EHSS, because Studio 4 already has the HSS, but it’s still not right.

Now, I get an error msg about Elite shapes/Utopian not being found, although the product-page says only Morphs++ is required.

Any thoughts?

Sounds as if the requirements may be wrong - that’s not unknown. You should be able to use the materials without the morph, and create your own shape with the morphs you do have, or you can ask for a refund or buy the Elite shapes.

Thanks, Richard,

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?
