I decided to start this thread as a continuation of my “LIGHTS” thread, which was lost when the new DAZ3D site took over. I was learning loads of stuff from 3dage and making people want Carrara 8 Pro. But yeah, I still have lots to learn.
Like, right now, I’m stuck because I’m using a hair cap on V4, but V4 will not go in the hair modeler when I drop the hair icon on the cap.
Oh boy, I thought I had this hair growing thing all figured out, but nope. The only thing I figured out was how to make the world’s WORST hairstyle.
I’m just trying to make a simple long, straight hairstyle, so I just kinda selected the whole cap and hit drape. But since V4 isn’t in there for it to fall on, I grabbed the Move tool and started trying to drag points around. Didn’t go too well.
Maybe you really don’t want to see what’s underneath all the hair, LOH. I don’t use Carrara yet. but Wendy keeps recommending it to me. I’ll follow along here and also see if I can pick up your light thread from the archives.
I’m trying to figure out how to make particle fire and ran into THAT! I feel dumb and boring now.
Geez, I’m having trouble with the tuts in there. I’m getting like the effect it shows in Part 2. My particles seem to just roll out on the floor or something, and I DID set the text as the emitter object.
