Here it is on a Genesis (customised V5 Supermodel shape) - i can’t show from the front, the low scoop turned out to be a bit too low pass forum rules…

If you have the paid-for Dynamic Control plugin with the extra features, select the slippery cloth panels and turn their friction way up. I’ve found some clothes (not all old ones) have all their parts at a friction of 0.01 which is a bit like a silk scarf draped off-centre on a freshly waxed leg held at an angle. A value of 0.5 or 1.0 gives a bit better stickiness, and a more realistic (or at least less TOS-breaking) drape.

Some examples of Aiko 3 wearing V4 dynamic cloth:

And one V4:

I played around with the new V6 set on Aiko3 and it looks really good on her.

For those who want to know, to fit to Aiko3, I normally increase A3’s scale up to 110% - 125% depending on the items and desired fit.

I’m having variable but mostly good (sometimes with a bit of fiddling) results as well with most Optitex dynamics on A3- and H3-based figures. I do it the other way round, though, I use the Dynamics tab’s ShrinkX% and ShrinkY% settings to fit the clothes to smaller figures. I’ve even managed to get fits, eventually, with the catsuit and bodysuit, although the belly dancer outfit is still very, very difficult to use because its separate trousers, top, sleeves and veil parts are all built in one piece. This means it’s a lot of fiddly work even getting a suitable starting fit on the t-pose that’ll actually drape properly.

No… just doing a standard static drape static fit as has always worked.  Simplest of all. 

The rig comes out spaghetti.  Moreover, when altering it, the shoulder moves the hip and so forth.  I suspect I should un-install completely and re-install.  It may be finding some of the older files .  That’s my first choice at the moment.

Even when the figure is in the default position, is spaghetti.  Also wondering if the added morph kit and morphs are giving it trouble. 

Never tried it on an *unmodified* genesis V5

Working through the expressions issues on genesis, and THAT is a pain.  I expect Genesis 2 and V6 are going to be “the” answer but damned if I can afford to change the kit I have already.  V6, characters and morphs….

And here’s the example scene I tried to work up last night, but I was having a brain hiccup with the lighting. All characters are using the A3-based Melody figure, and all the clothes are “for V4”. The girl on the left is short, but can wear the Little (non) Black Dress at actual 100% size. The one on the right needs the Neoclassical Robe shrunk by 10% for a snug* fit. The girl in the middle is taller, but still needs the Dynamic Evening Gown shrunk by 10% with a 20% vertical shrink on the skirt so the hem clears her toes comfortably.

* but I think she’d better not sneeze…

I will have to try that and maybe mixed the two methods to see what I can get. 

Thank you!

Has anyone heard from Martin?  I hope he’s OK.  It’s been a long time since I’ve seen him in here.

Not sure.  His last post over at the freebies forum he setup was back in March

She’s not bad, she’s just rendered that way.  <eeeeeeevil grin>

Actually, I was surprised how many of the dynamic goodies I have will fit well enough for an initial drape with a little bit (or sometimes a lot) of work. The only thing I can’t do easily is fit to a bigger figure, since the shrink% causes the drape to crash if I try negative values. Shrinking the figure and freezing the drape is the only solution to that.

Oh, he’s been working since he posted here last, but at the moment he’s on vacation. I do envy him his time off, though. I only get two weeks!

I’m having a problem with the maid dress. If I only collide the dress with v4, it drapes well, both animated or static. But if I want the dress, specifically the apron, to collide with the ground plane, it drapes right through her and falls to the ground.

Ideas?
