    Finally, the grass loaded lol!

    I need to stop visiting your thread it always adds to my wish list. Is this the forest grass? I got to make sure I'm putting the right thing in my list... lol

    Another conversion v4 to Genesis.  I will move it up to G2F and G3f as well.  Warrioress by EXnem'

    Edited to add that I used @KindredArts Ghost Lights 2 on this one, the inverted dome to highlight the top edges of her body and suit.

    It would be a waste to let perfectly usable items gatehr dust when youcan convert them for later generations :) Nice job on the armor there!

    Thanks!  It would most certainly be a shame lol.  Lots of very inexpensive, beautiful clothing for the older generations that look pretty good out of the box converted, and of course, one can always use shaders or re texture.

    Love seeing all of the conversions.  I'm just now getting caught up on your thread.  You've been busy.  I like the render with the warhound in it.  I completely forgot I even had that until I went looking it up.  He looks pretty good in your render.  I'm starting to convert a lot of my older stuff, too.  I still have a lot of RDNA stuff that I need to move up so I can use it on G2 and G3.

    Thanks everyone!  I'm enjoying the process and a lot of times a render will just come to mind as I am going through items.

    Thanks everyone!  I'm enjoying the process and a lot of times a render will just come to mind as I am going through items. 

    That's how I come up with 85% of my renders.  Usually I just browse my environments until something jumps out at me, and then build from there.  A few, like my new "The Forgotten" series I'll have an end point in mind when I get started, but I think most of my best work has come from "hey, this looks neat"

    Mine too lol!  Its always an adventure for sure!  Even when I have a certain idea in mind, there is no guaranteeing that that's where I am going to end up lol.

    I know, right?  I've lost count of how many times I've started something only to have it wind up completely different by the time I'm done.  Including changing genres completely

    Yes!  I've had medieval scenes turn into sci fi with no warning lol.

    And thanks TJ!  I'm having a blast redoing them all!

    This is the Elfin outfit for v4.  Having an issue with the handles showing in the render.  The opacity is set to 0 on the handles and they do not show in the preview scene, however, they do show in the render.  I can't find anyway to turn them off.   Any ideas?  Makes this outfit totally useless if I can't get rid of the handles.  I don't mind post work but this is something I should not have to post work and I'm not going to do it. ----  I tracked it down, you have to go into the scene list and drill down to the list under each skirt and turn the eye off as well.  Interesting, I've never had to do that before.

    That was one of the reasons why I used to participate in RRRR (random runtime...).  May have to get back to that.  For me, it helped include some humor as I was trying to learn the basics of C8.5.  Might be a good way to come up with projects now that I am trying to learn the interface for Studio.

     

    Thanks for the tip on the handles.  I'm sure it will come up.

    That is one fierce looking character there!

    Thanks!  She is from the other place.  I believe its Rainsong for the base and the elf add on for the skin etc.  Both base and add on are currently $3.50 so $7 to for the dark elf.  Lots of make up etc for both versions.  For V4 though.

    I've considered it but I have no idea how to get a truly random list.  People have spelled it out for me but I can't seem to wrap my head around the logistics of it given the amount of stuff I have lol.  Right now, I'm contemplating tomatoes.  Am going to try and make a tomato in carrara tomorrow hopefully lol...

    I have enough trouble finding my Daz content at the mo so I'm not adding from other sites.  Once I categorize my quickly growing Daz content and learn how to do that (I've kept links to your prior advice on that), maybe then I'll be ready to brave bringing in other content too.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask as well, organizing content is one of my favorite things lol.

    A quick render of Serum3d's female droid.  LOVING this although not terribly happy with the pose (not the bots fault lol,)

    My first attempt with the new Skinbuilder for G3F.  I used Sim Teneros Randomizer for the character and the skin builder for the skin.  I can't say enough good things about this product (actually, both products).  It exceeded my expectations and they were already high given my experience with the version for Genesis and Gen2F.  Sadly, I did not read the manual before making this skin so didn't save it.  I did save the character so hopefully the skin is intact.

    this is an awesome peice, great light, great surfaces and great to see realistic expression. 

    if you still have her in your saved files you should add her to the female centaur base which I'm sure you got think that'll look really cool with either blue/black horse or the white pale one

    I thought that bot was kinda corny with the bolts at the seams. You made it look cool. I did fantasize of making the chest orb Ironman sized though.

    Well, after all, it is a bot. How comfortable can that be?  devil    Love the blue overtones, nicely done!

    She would look very cool as a centaur I agree!

    Thank you!  I think he did a great job with these.  The blue overtones are coming from @KindredArts Ghost Lights.  The originals this time.  One above and one slightly to the right.
