Ok, I have been working on a project for the last couple of days, that uses LAMH. My goal was to make a nice long beard for 3D Universe’s Rex. I got something that I can work with. I still need to play with the painting option. Not as happy with my edges. You can see the render here:
I have attached a portion of the render (beard part) for your looky loo.
But the most important part is the following things I find that could be considered, improvements, issues and bugs.
I would really like to see values for all of the functions, spheirize, curl, length, tilt roots, swirl, taper, random roots, intensity etc etc. I mean all of them. The reason I want these is when I am creating several shave groups, I would like to have a start from or just the ability to set up the same conditions. Currently that can’t happen.
On this project I had to close Studio midway through the project, so I saved my scene and I saved my preset but there is no way that I could see to safely get back to work. What I found I had to do was create a new hair, which opened up the plug-in and then I loaded up the pre-set and then sent it back to Studio. (Any other way caused crashes.) This method is all well and good execpt that I had removed the underlining texture from my hair but when I reopened up the pre-set LAMH had replaced it. I had to go back in and remove that reference. No biggie but I think that the pre-set should contain all of the changed options and not just some.
No undo after the follicles step. Some undo buttons on all those wonderful options (spherize, curl, length, etc) would be most helpful. What I finally did was to have two files. My I want to save this for sure and maybe I want to save this. This way if I got heavy handed I could go back to just before then and use that file. This worked ok but sometimes I forgot and then there was blue smoke around my desk.
The scene I was working on had two genesis-figures. Every time I tried to change the position of either one my session of DAZ crashed. I will send my log file to Kendall if he wants it.
When I was finished with making changes to the group materials of the shave group I clicked on the “load to” (Button 4 at the top of the window) the window closes and the pop-up window comes up asking if I want to save and exit. I say yes and LAMH does something and then the materials window comes up again. On your videos this does not occur so is this a bug? And what do you need to see if you want to reproduce the event?
Well that’s all for now.
