The idea of Dyanmic clothing is that you don;t really need morphs, it fits where it touches really.

The Trinity item is made for DAZ Studio, so it will work with the plugin as supplied.  The paid for plugin (Dynamic Clothing Control) allows for more options like wind and heaviness of the material

I don’t have this particular item (I thought I had).

I take it you are using it on V4?  Do you want to have the coat move as if the wind is blowing, or something else?

yes im using on V4. the problem im having right now is that even when it drapes over the figure some areas of the figure still poke through, like the parts of the leg and chest.  and i cant adjust it.

You should definitely be able to stop that, even with the Lite version of the plugin.

You have to use the Collide With button to help with the drape, or you could try an animated drape to see if that helps any.

Have a look here:

Try this, Set collision with all of V4 (I’m sure you have) Scale the item a tad Bigger (it will shrink back during the Drape) and use an Animated Drape frame 0 T pose frame 30 your end pose. That might help.

I’m having problems with this as well. I’m using Studio4.5, latest build, refreshed my download of Dynamic clothing 64bit and serial etc…
That at least gave me the controls I couldn’t see in Basic.

I’ve used this before in Studio3+ but getting nowhere with Trinity Leather Jacket. I also updated my install of the jacket.
The product listing says it fits Genesis. I’m using the genesis character in a basic guarded pose.
The legs work out well after drape but the arms and torso fail.

For Dynamics with Genesis open the Genesis figure in your Collide settings and pick the Root of the figure. That is the only way it works with Genesis.
