Does Decimator work on genesis? I saw some comments when I was searching to the effect that people have problems. Does anyone use it? I was hoping to use it to speed up my rendering which is so slow, if it does crash.

Genesis can be Decimated as well, any mesh figure can as far as I know, but Genesis already has a Base resolution which makes it about 19k, which is about a quarter of normal figures like V4 and M4, so that should help anyway.  Maybe not so good for close-ups.


Can it be posed after decimation?

V4 and M4 have lores OBJ versions, at 1k, 4k, 8k and 17k, and people use these for crowd scenes, again not close up.  Have you tried these?

Thanks for the info I did not realise that. I’ve not really used V4/M4 but I shall use them in future if I ever do a crowd scene.

Yes it can be posed and even textured.

Decimation can spoil the facial features depending on how much you use.  I would think it woukld be best used for distance shots.

That’s pretty cool, then.

There’s times you want distant background folk. And you could even do animation with them.

Anyone noticed the 1st post’s been altered to say Pro Suite instead of Pro Bundle in the BuyItAll section. Wonder if they’ve changed it or if it’s a mistake.

I see that it has now been put back to the Pro Bundles.

Yep. It was an error.

Yeah, but only because I got some kind of bug up my nose, sinusitis or something like that.

I’d say that the bug in question is quite common for the season…

Excuse me while I go to bed with a mugful of hot glögg. Urrrrgh. So tired. But happy! Man, I just got some sweet, sweet stuff at nice price plus extra 30% discount! I realize that oldtimers aren’t pleased, as this sale hasn’t been like the ones in the past, but me… I got pretty much all I ever wanted needed to have…

Look, if you’re going to run your mouth and not drink yours, I will give it a good home…

*reaches for Totte’s mug*

I just acquired V4 Morph++ and M4 Morph++ packages. I am doing this in preparation of eventually getting GenX bundle, so I can take advantage of morphy foo.

GenX is wonderful. I just picked up a few more Gen4 products I needed. And all the buy it all stuff I hadn’t gotten last week. I’m going to have fun next week; and I’ll be on vacation, so I may actually have some free time to goof off.

I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere, but what is the last day that we can buy products that count towards the buy it all bonus? I’m sure that there will be more things released during the next five days, I want to make sure I get everything I need for the bonus.

Me gran used to teach me to keep an eye on sales. That sometimes, something will appear on sale, and even if you’re not needing it RIGHT NOW, there’s a good chance that in future you might.

Now, granted, she was talking about things like butter, flour, dish and laundry detergents…

...but the way I’ve found to include my impulse purchases to paid renders has been creative. smile

What I do is to put a little money in my PayPal account every week (plus a little more after the bills get paid), so I have a wee bit spare cash to spend on sale items every month or so.

And I’m another of those that look at an item and say, “Oooo. Ranger like! Must get!” No matter which of my many—unfinished red face  —projects I’m working on, I figure that I might be able to use it. Someday…  smile
