Ok, I have a bunch of eye texture with bad sclera textering

What I wanted to do was take an eye texture that has a a sclera to my liking.

Anyway, I'm looking at the V4/M4 seam guides. What the heck are the "Tear" things I see labeled on the guide?

I don't even see this guide being used with daz's offical textures...and I don't see it be used in the free ones I'm looking at.

    Underneath the eyeballs, between them and the face.

    There a reason why I don't see if often it in most, if not all, textures?

    Is it something not needed?

    I think most people leave it simply 'coloured' and possibly somewhat glossy/transparent, like a tear.

    There is mesh there so yes one can apply a texture to it ... and some do for special effects such as in crying.
    Or possibly painting it black as in eyeliner trying to make the lashes look thicker/longer.
    I've met a few women who will do that in RL. It's not a recommended practice though.[in RL]

    oohhh, your talking about that thin skin on top of the eyelid

    ok, so I guess unless it's not needed to worry about, unless for makeup

    The bottom eyelid, yes.

    If you're making a full character or face set, I'd suggest doing 'something'. I just downloaded a free one in which it was totally forgotten about and even thought the skin is pale, somehow grey stands out!

    If you're just fixing a set of eyes on an otherwise fine set, then yes you can leave it be.

    Full character set?

    No, just doing eyes so I can exchange them out

    the "tear" section is normally transparent. (like water (tear's )
    if you look closely at a V4 / M4 figure,. the model has a little line of mesh at the bottom eye lid,. to simulate eye fluid build up,.. like a tear.

    It doesn't need to have a texture,. unless it's a vampire with bleeding eyes etc,... :)

    You can also change the Texture for the Sclera, or any other part of a figure,. using the"Surfaces" panel to select and change the texture maps in any part of the figure.

    Hope it helps :)
