I searched the forums but couldn’t any posts with this problem.
Ever since I upgraded to 4.5, none of my dynamic clothes with long sleeves are loading in the default T-Pose. They’re loading in a pose where the arms are slightly lowered. This is problematic, because Victoria 4 is loading in her T-Pose, and, well, the cloth won’t drape like it’s supposed to.
Here’s a screencap. This is a plain ‘ol vanilla V4, with the Maiden Fair gown.
I don’t got this specific, dynamic gown, but if this dynamic clothing item is rigged for Victoria 4, you should be able to select the gown and then go to the “Parameter” tab and select “Fit to” -> “Victoria 4” via the “General” section.
If, for whatever reason, you don’t want to or can’t use “Fit to”, then you should still be able to e.g. rotate and or adjust the parts of the rig, so for example “bend an arm” of the rig using the “Scene” tab to get the gown into the T-pose - sometimes it can be beneficial actually not to use “Fit to”.
I’ve tried fitting it to V4 and adjusting the rig. It hasn’t worked. Even if I don’t fit the gown to V4, the rig doesn’t move. I’m not sure what else to do. I may try reinstalling DS4 and seeing if that helps at all.
ETA: I tried the reinstall, but it didn’t help. Then I fired up DS3, and it seems to work fine. Guess I’ll just do the draping and such in DS3 and then save the scene and do the final rendering in DS4. Kind of a pain, but I can’t think of anything else to do.
That is just so strange. I know that the genesis products I have worked on recently have had poses to bring the arms down but the version 4 stuff did not. I’ve not updated yet myself. Not due to lack of faith in 4.5 but because only an idiot upgrades half way through a project. The genesis version of century night gown that I am working on has a pose preset to bring the arms down like that. Normally I would offer to put a copy of it up on our web site, but that can’t happen right now.
Mostly the figure just wants the shoulder lowered 32.5.
