    That set looks good on her :D One of my favourites, but my scrap heap hates loading it.

    Yes, its kind of cpu eating. But there is a dial where you can scale up and down the HD, so for everything before the final render (and on distance shots even then) I scale it as far down as possible. That way its handable for me.

    It helps marginally on my old machine. But there's always to option to place and pose without clothes and then add them afterward. And then pray there is no finger clipping ;)

    That is true, I make a lot of posing with my figures nekkid, (my kids always standing there asking why is she/ he nekkid) just because the results seem more natural to me most of the time.

  • I do the same.  I get a lot of the kids yelling, "Mom's playing with naked people again."  Who knows what the neighbors think.  However, sometimes, It is just easier to pose people naked and then tweak once their clothes are on.

    Looks interesting indeed!  Not sure how to get my entire inventory into a text document though

    If you still have your DIM you can use that: open it go to the tab called Installed select everything right click into the prodcts window and select "export seceted to CSV" the settings you can leave as they are, then it will ask you where to save the CSV. open the file with your standard table program (excel/libre office...) it will ask you how to import the information, usually the given settings are good to go with. Nex will be cleansing the table of all the stuff you don't need in your selection (eg materials for some clothes or another gotten as a freebie where you don't have the actual clothes for, For me I delete all iray shader as I don't go for the Iray, all the basic programm settings) and add the stuff per hand you downloaded via the connect if you use that. There is no need to include all the freebies from sharecg or material from other stores, except if you want to.

    then get a numer in front of each item ( i use the table preset given  ones and get four of the selected via a randomiser. let the fun begin

    Gee, I wish I had asked this question.  I went and copy and pasted each page of my product page into LibreOffice and then converted to a txt document.  I have a LOT of pages and I only managed to get through about half before I gave up.  Going to give this method a try as it sounds so much easier.

    Ok I got the first part done butttt so not sure what to do next can some explain a bit further? got it into word pad now what do I do from there????

  • LinwellyLinwelly Posts: 5,795

    You don't really need to make a word pad out of it, just save the csv extract with a title somewhere you can find it again. Next step is to open the csv file but not with the ususal double click but with a right mouse click and select a table calc program to open it with. That reseults in a text import into the calc program, the pop up has some weird looking things going on asking how to separate, just click ok, there you go. next is just editing your list to remove what you don't need.

    My moste recent work:

    Is he a warlock to wield the ancient stones, or is he called there by ancient magic?
    Something I have been working on for some time now trying to get nice effects with lights in DS4.8 using 3dlight, as that, there is only minor postwork in this one covering an artifact, the light effect is all done in 3dlight.  Let me know what you think.
    Character is mine, custom dialed from g2m, the tattoos are created by me after original celtic designs.
    The carvings on the stones and the light pattern are created by me after original carvings found in Cornwall, UK(Cornwall labyrinth) and a barrow at Newgrange, Ireland.
    Other materials from the DAZ shop

    This is awesome!  I haven't had a chance to try out the link you sent me for that effect.  Been a super busy month at work and at home but its on my list lol.  Did you do the tattoos in postwork or with LIE?

    Thanks a lot, yes there are these month, I'm kind of surprised I found time to do this at all...

    The tattoos are made with LIE, was kind of tricky to place the one on the arm so that the seems fit.

    Don't you have any of the ususal office programs? The MS office would have Excel as table calc program, but there is some free software which is pretty good like "open office " has a calc program coming with it. I am currently using "libre office", which is as well open source freeware, comes as well with a table calc. They basically all work in the same way. just make sure you get it from the source origin, so not to collect some bugs on the way home.

    I don't know what apple has in store if your on a Mac but they where the ones starting these office programs back in the 90's so there is something as well for sure.

    I don't know which software you had but my experience is that the MS office does need a lot of space (tons of gadgets nobody wants or needs) while the freeware usually comes a lot lighter.

    Meh... I'm feeling really exausted, uninspired to work on something and thinking it's gonna be crappy anyways. I know it will go away somewhen  but right now it's just awful...

    lol I know the feeling!  I dip my toes in Bryce about once a week, its such a great program but... different.  Still trying to learn all the navigation.  I have the worst time moving things around lol.  Would love to see what you come up with.

  • LinwellyLinwelly Posts: 5,795

    haha, here is my very first, very exiting bryce render. Yes navigation is kind of differnt. Some day I hope I can do my backgrouns for my DAZ works in Bryce. Also, you may know this one already, just in case you don't http://www.pxleyes.com/tutorial/bryce/1218/Absolute-Beginners-Guide-to-Bryce.html

    It didn't leave me completely confused behind, only mostly. For now I completly lack the sense of when things are in touch...

    Nice!  I have watched all the tutorials I could find and plan on watching them all again lol.  Part of my issue is that switching from program to program, my brain loses track of what you are supposed to be doing in what program. I finally started using small notebooks to try and keep track of the even the simple basics.  I have one for Iray one for 3Delight one for Reality one for Bryce and one for odds and ends lol.  Just the old fashioned $1 composition books.  Otherwise I would just run screaming.  My plan is to use the backgrounds in Daz as well, its the first thing I thought when I saw Bryce.  But I would like to be able to create the scene in Bryce as well, importing figures etc.  I really wish they would update Bryce to 64 bit and solve the memory problem.

    I guess that could happen to me as well, thats why I'm stickung to 3delight (beside the fact that I'm not equepped enough for that). I have thought many times about getting reality and I might just do that someday but there is still so much to learn for 3delight (I can produce black holes nowblush, gaming around with shader mixer) and now Bryce.. and well Gimp for that matter... as someone in the Bryce forum stated I might need a bigger head.

    I liked this, Linwelly.  I especially like the whole sort of double exposure thing you did with this.  I haven't played with this type of technique, but I'm finding that I kind of like how the finished product looks when it is applied well.  You did it well.
