As from the blog:

“More work on the Mammuth
I had to make new movies for the “Making the Mammuth” tutorial movies, and so I decided to do some renders.
Here is a new render done in Studio 4.5 and a “ice age” composition.
I think tomorrow I’ll be able to upload the movies, in my opinion are really worth a look.”

This will be most likely the last render I’ll post for some days. I’m satisfied with the actual alpha version and I want to setup and start beta testing this coming week.

amazing movie!

I’m sure that part of the reason you can go so fast is that you’ve been working on the system for a while but I’m still amazed at how easy you make it look to model the hair!


And i think that the great thing about this is that it truly will be easy since none of the actions you did looked very advanced (though I’m sure creating them were) but rather it was all, shorten hair here, move it there, taper down the legs, and done. Its an advanced system that so far looks like you dont need too much advanced knowledge to make it work.

Which is great because now that the tools aren’t something crazy complex, getting realistic (or fantastic unrealistic) looks is not limited by how complicated the system is but only our own imagination smile


soooo cant wait for release! :D

Thanks Faewolf. It’s true that by now I’ve lot of practice with it so I can use it at warp speed grin
But it’s indeed very, extremely easy to use. As you wrote, the whole matter is just combing, cutting, scaling hair and take advantage of the deformers to style hair “globally”.
Tapering those is very useful in order to quickly scale hair along one axis, not to mention the curl and tilt deformers as well.
When styling is done, one click on the export and it’s done. I’ve put lot of care and efforts to make the interface and workflow very much user-friendly.
In a few days we should enter beta-testing: I’ll be very curious to hear the comments and user experience from them.

Glad I found this thread (AGAIN!). Being lost in cyberspace after every DAZquake is taxing.

Great job so far Ale. The Caiman is just awesome. The other furry animals look great, also, but the Caiman just is out of this world.

Take care Ale.

Best regards,

JF

You’re so welcome!!  Looks like you’ve put a huge amount of effort into this, especially in the user interface and functionality - can’t wait to make all my virtual animals furry…...cool smile

*looks at her current work-in-progress*

Man, I just want to do eyebrows and beards right now…

Possibly hair in other places too. (What, hairy armpits and chests are totally manly.)
