OK all you DS users, I’m gonna need some help. In my quest to get some PA’s to donate for the month of December I have been convinced to start using DS instead of Poser. I haven’t a clue how to use it, am downloading it now and I’m very nervous about trying something new. It took me forever to figure out Poser. I did the hunt and peck method to learn the first time. I need help in figuring out how to use all my poser stuff in DS. ANY suggestions are welcome. PLEASE… pretty please. HELP
Having used both DS3 Pro and DS4 Pro, I gotta say that DS4 is the easier of the two to master. There are built in links to video tutorials for each section like posing, rendering, etc. In addition don’t forget to check out youtube for demos and tutorials on the various features of DS. Having said that, I can tell you that since you already know how to use Poser, DS will come to you easily as they are very similar in many ways.
The only thing to be aware of is that the new DS4.5 uses a different scene extension, so if you have older DS scenes they may need to be converted. New scenes should all work flawlessly.
As mentioned above, if you use the free version of DS4.5 you should at the very least buy the Autofit plugin. It allows you to use your V4 and M4 content on the Genesis figure with little or sometimes even no tweaking. If you experience “poke through” with an outfit that has been autofitted onto Genesis, smoothing is your friend.
If you buy the DS4.5 Pro version, it comes with the Autofit plugin, as well a severl others built in.
Good luck with the new tools!
