At long last! A 3D graphic design software tutorial on using the rigidity feature in DAZ Studio 4.5+!!
Over a year in the making (because it took that long to collect enough information about the subject to write a tutorial), this tutorial explains what the rigidity feature can and cannot do, how to tell whether it's even needed and most important, how to use it.
Rigidity can be used to "protect" items such as buttons, buckles and ornaments from being distorted by figure morphs transferred from the base figure to clothing. It can also be used to force add-on items such as scabbards and arm-mounted weapons to hold their shape. And, of course, where the rigidity feature really shines is in its ability to make geo-grafted items retain their shape, proportions and rigging.
All these functions are demonstrated and explained with step-by-step instructions and plenty of illustrations.
The tutorial is in .PDF format, with bookmarks and table of contents.
