I think it goes like this:
V4 Elite Texture: Marie - Elite Human Surface Shader - exe - pc Shader
V4 Elite Texture: Marie - V4 Elite Texture Marie - DS - exe - pc DS materials files
V4 Elite Texture: Marie - V4 Elite Texture Marie Tutorial - exe - pc PDF tutorial
V4 Elite Texture: Marie - V4 Elite Texture Marie Ca Pt2 - exe - pc Carrara incl textures
V4 Elite Texture: Marie - V4 Elite Texture Marie Ca Pt1 - exe - pc Carrara incl textures
V4 Elite Texture: Marie - V4 Elite Texture Marie - Poser Files - Part 2 - exe - pc Poser files incl textures
V4 Elite Texture: Marie - V4 Elite Texture Marie - Poser Files - Part 1 - exe - pc Poser files incl textures
so for DS you’d need the DS installer and the two Poser installers for the textures.

HSS is the same as the Elite HSS and is included in DS4 - you should get the intended results as long as you use the DS files to apply the textures.

I’ve had weird textures if I’ve been applying a lot of different textures, trying out new characters or clothing sets for example, though not for a while - and a restart cured it. However, at least one other person did have exactly the same issue (eye texture applied to head) so it does sound as if there is or was a rare bug condition that could cause that.

I’ve successfully used Elite Texture Marie in DS4.0.
I found 7 PC exe files in my downloads (I think), of which one was EHSS (which isn’t needed if you have DS4+), two were Carrara-only (I didn’t even download those) and one turned out to be a Carrara Shader Tutorial. The filenames you actually need to install are:

7674_4_dpc_V4EliteTextureMarie.exe (contains the Poser files for morph injections plus some of the texture jpegs)
7674_5_dpc_V4EliteTextureMarie.exe (contains the rest of the texture jpegs)
7674_14_ds_V4EliteTextureMarie_14.exe (contains the .ds files for the 11 options in the DAZ Studio content library shown below)

(At least these were the filenames on August 15th, when I downloaded Marie)

The full face morph injection requires V4 Morphs++ but and Utopian head shape from Elite Morphs, but there is also a “NOELITE” option which only requires Morphs++ which presumably looks a little different, but as I don’t have Elite Morphs I can’t tell how much different)

I hope this helps?
ETA: Sorry, I didn’t notice Richard had already replied when I wrote this (I’d only read as far as the end of page14!)

Thank you both very much, Richard and MelanieL.

I hadn’t noticed the noelite option you mention, MelanieL, but the clarification on which file for what is very helpful. It’s a bit like the new DSON changes in my Downloadable Products pages; there are files for various things, but my experience base is too small yet to know what they are all for.

For example, now we have triax installers, Legacy installers (what’s that?), and the Poser installers, but in one case I also have a new, I think, installer for V4, whereas the rest of the products only show the first three.

The Legacy files in particular are confusing, because I had thought that that was dpc, for V4 vintage products, for Poser.

Thanks for helping!

The Legacy installers are for versions of DS before DS4.5

Thanks, fixmypcmike,


I ended up buying the Elite shapes, on sale, and they work well and simply. The face is a pretty refined morph.

Incidentally, the P3Designs character, Carmen, mentioned on the initial post list, is also excellent. great texture, form and features.

I’m working now on the image I want to create, and look forward to posting it.

I appreciate everyone’s assistance.

Here’s a rather unusual use I made of the body paint options of the stunning Tyrese texture set. I didn’t use the morphs, as excellent as they areā€”this is a feline-human morph I did using a variety of resources including my own custom morphs (Genesis).

New first post update with some stuff for the often neglected K4.

Out of curiosity, what is the cutoff point for thread length?

Oh, don’t worry, you have a way to go yet. It’s 100 pages.

Is it still 100 pages?  I thought that was one of the things switching to the new forum software was supposed to fix!

‘Nother render — same little girl that I used in GiS:  History Field Trip, but this time she’s using the S41_FullSkin.dsa texture from Children of the WorldDS4.5Pro render, prework and postwork in GIMPLarger version in my deviantART gallery here.

Been slowly adding more stuff to the first page.  Currently waiting on a render that was inspired by something in this thread but while I wait I’ll link to some other completed art: http://www.renderosity.com/mod/gallery/index.php?image_id=2386212&user_id=733323&np;&np;

KickAir 8P, this is all your fault. 

Why you gotta make those renders with the little girl growing up to be an astronaut all inspiring and stuff?  Now I gotta go out and randomly render “what if” images and such.  It didn’t even crash that many times like the picture simply had to be made.  Hope you feel good about yourself (both sarcastically and genuinely).

I’m having remarkably little trouble taking the blame for this — snazzy!

However, at least one other person did have exactly the same issue (eye texture applied to head) so it does sound as if there is or was a rare bug condition that could cause that.

Month late, but I’ve seen that too, I’ve never had it on my desktop machine that I recall, but I was getting it fairly frequently on my laptop (which I only use for Studio if I’m away from home), I presumed it was a memory issue, or perhaps more specifically a memory-leak. As you say, a restart cured it (until it appeared again).
