And talking about decisions.  I am trying to make my mind up about an outfit to texture, as I promised Rob something for November challenge.

Would this one suit, does anyone reckon.

I think that would suit just fine, Cho. Again, thank you.

Oh, and since jeeperz has already mentioned needing something…  I’m still looking for another contribution for November - or two, if people don’t want to get my first attempt at a texture for an entry prize. (Cho has promised me a texture or two, and Music’s mentioned providing something, and I have a very-small gift from somebody not a regular here for anyone who’ll volunteer to judge…) Might I impose upon someone for help here?

I apologize rob, don’t want to infringe on you getting donations for Nov. I actually have been pming some of the PA’s for help on donations. I had a great conversation with one of them that suggested I use DS is why I’m asking.

No worries - I get the feeling that we both started our prize hunts months ago.

Jeeperz:  If you download the 4.5 the you are getting the Pro version.  Everything is there except for the registered Decimator, and the advanced Optitex Dynamics.  The Basic Dynamics are there.  All you’ll need is the SN that DAZ will send you.

Auto-Fit is built in to DS4+ and will allow you to fit clothing to Genesis with pretty much no effort.  Some clothing will still show a bit of pokethrough, but if you turn on the “Smoothing and Collision” modifiers, pokethru will be a thing of the past.

You can still use the Gen1-Gen4 characters within DS4, but they do not benefit from the Advanced Genesis features.  One exception is the “Smoothing and Collision” which works even with V4.  This will help you fit clothes that “don’t quite have the right morphs.”

DS4 also uses a “newer”, yet still very old, version of OpenGL than DS3, but if your machine ran Poser 8-PP2012 then your machine is more than capable of running DS4.

One of the nicer features of DS4+ is the ability to use a Light as a camera so that you can aim the light EXACTLY where you want it.  You are looking through the light’s lens.  Also, DS4+ adds a new “Linear Point Light” that keeps the light linear (instead of inverse square) throughout its area of effect.  This makes area lighting easier.

“Your Mummy Don’t Dance & Your Dragon Don’t Rock-n-Roll”

Set up & rendered in DS4.5Pro. No postwork except for signature. I actually had a really good time creating this scene. When I decided to go more of a cartoon route with this, I had to search for almost all of the items I used (didn’t have many toon items in my runtime before). Overall, I’m pretty satisfied with how it turned out (after fiddling with the depth of field for an obscene amount of time)

you’re right, I started several months ago but stepped it up recently. I have had great response from our PA’s here at DAZ, I have one that is even going to make me something for the winner, now is that cool or what. and of course music always does something or has something cool for us as well.

Title: After The Music Of The Night
Rendered in: DS3A

General notes: I’m not that high on the available face morphs and face sculpts for Hiro 3, so I often end up loading one of Dyald’s H3 headmorphs, which load as a dial, and then one of Dyald’s stronger-featured Aiko 3 heads, and start fiddling with the two sets of Dyald character dials until I find a balance that I like.  This is what happened on Hiro 3 here.

Neutral Items: Aiko 3 and Hiro 3.  A3 was posed manually, H3 uses a modified version of one of the poses that come with him. Concubine texture resource by Teresa Tyllo, used to retexture the dynamic burqa, can’t find link right now.

I have Sha’s Shaders, there is not one for rusted metal. I have a lot of shaders…but no rust in any of them. Someone needs to make one and give it here in the freepository. Many would appreciate that. Lots of rust out there in the world…lol.
