Okay folks… I’m using Genesis in the newest version of Daz Studio and for some reason… it is VERY stiff - extreme delayed response to movement of any kind. I can’t believe how unresponsive it is.

No problems with Genesis2 - nor with M4 / V4 - but Genesis is making me crazy. Any clue as to why the model is so delayed in posing - very stiff - help? And it’s further being delayed by the applying mesh smoother with every single movement made.

Uggggh!

Why Genesis along is the issue I have no idea, but having a lot of items with collision/smoothing enabled will tend to cause delays and ‘stutters’ in the viewport.

Okay - this is ALL that is in the scene with Genesis - and yet - posing it, moving him, is maddening! PLEASE has anyone had this problem, know if this has happening to you?

My graphics card is up to date! Below is my system info…
======================================
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
ASUS AMD FX 6100 Six-Core Processor
nVidia GeForce GTX760 2gb ram graphics card
16gb ram - 1trb drive

Daz Studio 4.6.3.50 Pro

Accuratus mouse

======================================

Help please! I will be using Genesis Michael 5 a lot and I can’t work with it like this!

Mercedesk,

Select all to the clothes on Genesis and shut off the collision then pose the figue.  After you are dont posing, turn the collision back on.

OKay I’ll try it now. I sure hope that’s the problem, because I counted how many seconds before the figure moved to pose it, and it’s like 30 to 35 seconds between EACH movement - oh I’m about the cry with it. This is a job I’m doing for someone so I can’t just switch to another model - because she’s approved and wants this character I came up with for her.

I’m off and praying that works.

Ugggh - when I selected the shirt on Genesis and clicked on Select All - it highlighted everything in the entire scene. How do I select only the clothes on the Genesis model? Where is it that I find to turn off Collision?

Thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!! That was the problem - WOW! I was on my way to a serious headache, thank you so much - now I have to get busy, I’ve wasted two days messing with that and walking away - restarting computer all kinds of stuff trying to figure it out. Please post that somewhere where others who MIGHT have that problem can see it.

That Sweater is a PITA, I just used it myself and it really puts a hit on a PC. So turning collision off until we render really is a time saver when it is used in a scene.

HEY! Come to think of it, THAT shirt/sweater caused me problems before, and I took it off the model and the problem went away - so it’s definitely something about THAT top that is not right.

UGGGGH! It’s doing it again! I’ve even gotten rid of that shirt, but it’s returned to being stiff and slow response once more. Oh my goodness, this is NOT the time for this - and I would just pick Genesis to make this male character instead of M4 or M6… I’m gonna cry! I’ve only gotten two poses for her package and I need 3 more and doing it is agonizing!

Naw, there is nothing wrong with it, it is just very detailed for close up renders. The Mesh detail and the collision settings both add up and that is what we see in the Viewport. Nothing more than that.

Okay, when you start seeing STIFF hard to move figures have you been doing lots of graphic things with your PC? Are you running more than just DAZ Studio when you see this happen? It sounds to me like your Graphic Ram may be full, that alone will slow things down as the card tries to adjust what it is displaying and needs to swap things in the Ram to do so.

EDIT: Are you using any HD settings on the M6?

Uhhhh - hmmm - I’m using Genesis 1 - the first with a texture from Mec4D - this texture…
http://www.mec4d.com/store/index.php?_a=product&product_id=67 - the Asian male for Genesis…

AND - I have my virtual memory on my computer set really high. Lowest 25,000 and highest 35,000 -

So how do I clean my memory or cash? Or is there a way? *sigh* long face

Well it does not say anything about using HD in the info. I do know that when I use HD on my Power PC I see a very noticeable lag. It was my only guess. DAZ Studio does have the Clear Memory Utility Script, it will clean all unused files from Ram for you if that is the issue. I’m now out of idea’s as to why you may be seeing this. Wish I was more help.
