    Thanks for the swift reply.

    Also yeah I did noticed that flat planes seem to give nonsensical chalk lines on fitted clothes.

    Spheres work fine though.

    Hi @mCasual, I was trying this today to make a skirt a little shorter, so I had just a skirt, and a plane.  Selected both, standard options, but the result was just a white jpg.  (no lines)

    Have you tried this recently with G8F, or DS 4.10.0.123?

    EDIT/UPDATE - Never Mind!  I did not notice you had posted an update late last year, works fine!  yes

    Hey - it looks like files have got mixed up on your site, and the page for mcjTailorschalk now has a link to mcjSugarPotAndCreamer.zip instead of the chalk tool.

    (Not something I personally need - I've got the file, but I saw somewhere else that someone who wanted it couldn't find it).

    Did you find the file? I went to look for it but, as Matt said, it is linked to a different script.

    Thanks !

    in January google was phasing out the "classic" google sites, so i had to spend hours and hours rebuilding my hundreds of web pages 

    anyway ... the tailor's chalk zip file is now back at the bottom of the tailor's chalk web page

    testing a direct link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BdGjc_QALzY_Fpu1PJdZfU1yy864jQsB/view?usp=drive_web

    or

    the actual web page  https://sites.google.com/site/mcasualsdazscripts4/mcjtailorschalk

    for the record, that's a 2014 script updated in 2017 but it still works in 2021, magine that

    Thanks for a quick response. I'll go and get the file now.

    And hopefully will continue doing so for a long time to come. It's a really useful tool to do some tricks that would be really quite hard otherwise. (A dedicated boolean tool would be great, but I'm not aware of one, unless that's something else in your massive library of scripts).

    I mean at some point to try doing a Terminator-themed render, where the time-travel carves a sphere out of the arrival zone. Functionally the same principle as above, I suppose, but it just occurred to me that it'd be another idea to play with.

    That is very impressive. I'd appreciate a little walkthrough of how you did it (the red edging, for example). I tried to use the TailorsChalk to create a see-through area of a G8 body in order to show DAZ anatomy and skeleton (I only have the V4 versions unfortunately) but I couldn't get it to do what I wanted. The opacity map I created with this script was practically useless but you seem to have go the hang of it.
