Are you saying I can use Genesis dynamics in DS3 as long as I animate the drape?

You’ve probably explained already - but why can’t you update to DS4?


I have DS4 ... but it is so very different from DS3, and I am always on such tight deadlines, that I just am not comfortable enough with it to get my work done in a timely manor. I can never find everything I know I have, etc. Plus, I don’t like genesis.

all your reasons seem to be personal, what is the rational for making genesis users limit new items because other users don’t have the time.  should everyone wait untill you like genesis?

don’ get me wrong there are plenty of times that i have been in your place with technology, but where we differ is i make choices not to move along with the newest tech but i don’t expect stuff to stop moving forward.

martin,

it seems that the conversion for older items are working is there any news on converting v4/m4 items in the daz and optitex stores to genesis? there are quite a few items that i would like to purchase but would feel better if i knew there was a genesis update in the works?

thanks in advance.

It will take you maybe 1 to 2 hours to get use to the new layout and it will save you a lot of pain and time in the future, when you do not have that time you have a serious problem tongue laugh
I also do not see a big advantage at Genesis but certainly not a disadvantage and to use genesis is not difficult at all, takes maybe 30 minutes to learn all the options.

Right, this has my first priority.
I will make upgrades for all dynamic clothes, freebies and Daz store items and that will take me 1 or maybe 2 month to realize.

I didn’t say genesis was difficult. I said I didn’t like it… lol. It’s a personal aesthetic thing. And I have spent hours trying to figure out DS4 ... I can never find my stuff. It took me two years to learn what I know about DS3 ... lol. And I am still learning ...


And yes, time is a serious issue with all of the work I have to complete in such a short amount of time.


And I’m sure to those who are all about the ‘advancement’ think I’m just being silly and I’m the only one still using DS3/V4 and dynamics, but I’m not. They are just moving to Renderosity and Poser for V4 dynamics, is all.


Well ... before I create more discontent, I’ll drop it ... lol. Whether I have access to new Dynamics or not, I’m going to use what I have on all of my book covers. I absolutely love Martin’s work. I’ll just mix-n-match like I do now and get creative with shaders and textures :D No more complaints.

I would like to see you make them for Genesis - not so much for G5 or M5 as I don’t have them

If it’s not a huge inconvenience, I like them for DS3 V4 or M4, too. Mostly M4, since I can use an M4 shirt on V4 much easier. But if it’s hard or overly time consuming. :D These are really cool.

In many ways it boils down more to can we all agree that the 100 percent for the base will be alright for the clothing. That means v5 gets scaled up a little bit for example. But doing that also means that the clothing can be used on most versions of a male or female shape.

Right, thanks to dragon’s help last year, I finally learned how to animate a drape. So I can make an M4 piece of clothing work for V4 much easier than the other way around.
