These videos are “first draft” quality from an early version of the suit. I am currently redoing them to bring them up to date.
It struck me, however, that you might benefit more from seeing them than not so here you go.  Keep in mind that the basic principles are solid, but some of the details are off.

To help you figure out the suit here are 9 videos that will get you started.

7.  http://vimeo.com/36569643
8.  http://vimeo.com/36569857
9.  http://vimeo.com/36569858

Thanks for these.

Is there a tutorial anywhere on the forum to show how to use items purchased for the supersuit? I purchased the Super Suit Fantasy pack and can’t get any aspect of it to show up. Will these tutorials teach that?

Thanks

 

The videos were very helpful. I did get that Fantasy Supersuit preset to show on the character. I see now that I can’t just drag it in. I have to right or left mouse click on the preset in the content library and select load. These are very helpful.

It had been hard for me to use a lot of things until now.

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

I am hoping they work hand in hand with one another. I ALSO hope they have the “Underwear on the outside”  option so prevalen in in the silver and golden age of comics. I would love to seesome identical suits jusr with different edge looped area to make a separate cowl with an edge, devil horns, bat ears and the like.

Thank you for all your efforts, sir.

You are greatly appreciated!

Relating to Future expansions…. Would you guys rather buy individual supersuit characters like say “CAPTAIN CHAMPION” that came with all the shaders used on him for say $5 or a bundle similar to the current offering?

Option for both?

Hey Randall,

Welcome back and thank you so much for the super suit videos on youtube!  I’ve watched them twice now.  Before that I was kind of well let’s say intimidated by the suit so didn’t bother with it much.  But after your videos I’m actually using it.

I did have a small issue come up and was wondering about advice. 

If I create Young Teen 5 Julie, add the Supersuit, and then add the Hazard Medic Trooper preset from the Sci-Fi pack, I get a fair amount of poke through on the lower abdomen and the buttocks in the back.  I found another thread where it said the first fix for poke through was to change the displacement value from the default -.10 to 0.  I did that and it indeed takes care of most of the poke through.  However, there are a few spots.  I can of course thicken the suit but and that takes care of it all but I like to show the faces instead of having a helmet.  I can use the “Push in Head Region” option and that will show the head and face but it only works on the default layer.  So if I thicken the suit, it fixes the poke through but leaves “War Paint” on the face after using the “Push in Head Region” option. I guess I could also hide the body part.  On other items, I would use collision or smoothing.  I’m not seeing those though.

Any advice?  Sorry, I lean toward the idiocy side of learning all of this stuff still.

Thanks,

Tom

I tried to duplicate your issue and it didnt happen for me. the Hazard Medic trooper fits Young Julie quite nicely.  But I have updated files. this sounds like the little known supersuit bug.

for some reason, when the supersuit was released, there was a flaw in a great many of the presets.  there is no overall hip control in many of the dsa files so when you apply a preset, whatever the master hip setting was at the time is carried over to the new shape.

to fix this, adjust the master (top) hip slider until it looks right.

here is how it should look and what the settings should read.

I know the files will be updated soon, but maybe I should make a video anyway

If this isnt your problem, post me some screenies and I will try to figure it out. the only other thing I can think of is an improper installation leading to missing morph files
