CRY!! CRY!! CRY!!
Why does Arki and friends make me want to cry so BAD!!!!
First it was the SylphDress. Now I know there is a conforming one, but the dynamic looks 10 times better!
I accepted the fact that it won’t work in DAZ, so I walked away from it.
But now Arki broke ME!!! The dress of my angelic dream has arrived, Angeloi. BUT THE OVER DRESS AND SLEEVES ARE POSER DYNAMIC!!!!
Help me Martin, YOU ARE MY ONLY HOPE! Could you talk to Arki about making some DAZ Dynamic add-ons?
Ditto this. Beautiful set. I’m even considering buying it just for the parts that are conforming… but I would really love to have those sleeves and the overskirt. To me, this kind of clothing is what dynamic cloth is for.
I’m pretty sure DAZ went with this technology because in general, it’s easier to use, since items can be fitted and posed before draping, rather than requiring an animated drape. But the limitation requiring everything to be developed in very expensive proprietary software is a killer. Martin has been great about working with people, but he’s one guy.
That said, I’d be willing to remap the OptiTex versions of the overskirt and sleeves to use existing textures, if Arki is willing to work with Martin to create OptiTex dynamic versions of the same. That won’t help if someone wants to freeze the drape, but it will cover everything up to that point. (And there might be a way to use a DS function to convert existing textures to the OptiTex maps with a script, if a remapped UV map exists…)
