Problem with Bits
At the risk of offending Mrs Grundy, I have been trying to provide one of my characters (M4 Alex) with a reasonable set of "bits". He just doesn't look right without any, concealed or not, but apparently provision has not been made for them to be included with a GenX conversion to Genesis.
After much experimentation, I have finally managed to produce a set; linking them to the appropriate position on Alex's whereabouts has been somewhat akin to trying to dock my space shuttle to the Space Station ... with one hand!
There is a problem, however, that I just can't solve. It may be regarded as "art contempory" but I just cannot get the colour (Diffuse) of the bits to match the rest of him or vice versa!
There should be a way to "pick" a colour from an existing display but DAZ doesn't seem to have this facility. If it did, the colour could be stored within Surfaces and then selected for use on a different figure. Perhaps it is not as simple as that as some parts are picked up from a .jpg file under Diffuse ... I am a confused Diffuser!
Or am I missing something?
My apologies to Mrs Grundy.
BTW How's the 4.5 Manual coming on? ;-P
