Moved by request of OP.

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. raspberry 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.

Andy, old buddy, you still out there?

Only the cap should show up in the hair modeler.

V4 would show up if you dropped the hair directly on V4

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.

GKDantas Janet hair on sharecg goes well on the Daz haircap
I use that one a lot!
even though I bought lots of PhilW’s and other hairs.
Janet hair animates better too!

Um, Wendy, can you link me to it? Can’t seem to find it.

What animation did you do with it?

So, I grew hair directly on V4, but I have no idea how the other tools work. Actually, they don’t seem to do anything. Like the hair cut tool. How do I cut the hair from her face?

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.

Oh Anne, you’ll looooe Carrara. Once you open it, you can neer close it. raspberry

My problem with the hair cut tool was that I wasn’t clicking the bloody little dots. That’s why it didn’t seem to work. Stupid moi.

Problem solved.

Next problem: Push tool.

Would it be better to wait until the new Carrara is released?

Well, if you’re more a Genesis fan, maybe. But if you get Carrara, they say there will be a “small” upgrade fee for C8.5.

This isn’t the kinda fire I want, but it’s the only tut I could find. I want a flaming sphere.

I am moving towards being a total Genesis fan

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.

Oh, help meh…
