    I am afraid I am loosing my hearing. It is hard to hear things at work but is that because my hearing is going away or they play that music in the backroom so darn loud.


    I could hear my mum okay on the phone so maybe it was the music is too loud at work and is hard to hear over it. Why is there music being played in the backroom of the store? music is for the customers I thought. There are no customers in the backroom.


    Next year the store I work at is going to be remodeled as in rebuilt and redone. The GM said that I will be working at a different store during that period so I do not have to worry.

    It is probably the backroom music then, not your ears.

    That is what I am thinking also. i do not know why they have that music on so loud.

    I thought i lost a library book but it fell off the night stand and was behind it. The book is Dead Until Dark, a mystery novel with a bite. True Blood is based on that series. I wonder I can see the 2012 season of True Blood. I also want to catch up on Dexter. i did not see the 2011 season of Dexter and there probably is a 2012 season of it I have not seen. Maybe I can catch up on that when I get Netflix, but that will not be for a while.

    Well do a small scale test render with raytracing on. Render a 500x500 image, that shouldn't take too long?

    Yeah Ok, I'll start her up now.

    Was it you who rendered final renders really big? Was it 4000+? Also, when you render big, do the distant characters loose that weird texture seam? I notice it really bad with this test render at 1000x1000

    Hey, WOW, things are certainly different with RayTrace! Even the lighting has changed. It actually didnt take as long as I expected... Probably because I haven't loaded the trees. But there ARE shadows! :cheese:

    That's a nice pastoral scene :)

    I did a render but it is not complete. I seem to be clueless about my art direction at the moment. I have all this content but I feel like I need something extra in order to do an image with it.

    Well it looks good. Tentacles ? :)

    I am not understanding how to find smoothing modifier in DS4.5. I am going to go to bed and try to figure it out in the morning.


    I also gave Genesis a tail. I cannot figure out how to parent the tail to genesis so that it will always be attached to Genesis's butt. I think it is attached but then I change the pose of Genesis and the tail goes into a wrong position.


    It gets so frustrating. my join date says I have been at Daz since 2004. It is 2012 now. That is about eight years. I feel like I should know more than I do about daz studio.

    stuff changes though, is taxing to keep up the pace ;)

    I think I need more hair for Genesis. maybe I should find a way to get Vicky 4's hair to work on Genesis. Once I do that I can have a bit more hair for Genesis. Though I am afraid I will not ever have enough hair for Genesis.


    I am waiting for two things so I can get more stuff for Genesis. I am waiting for my personalized prepaid visa to come in is the main thing. the second thing is to have some paychecks in which takes time and working.

    Miss B W:
    You can use your V4 hair on Genesis with the same flexibility as with V4. I use 4.0 but this should work the same in 4.5.

    If you use "fit to' for the hair, your morphs will be broken and the hair "vacuum-packed to the head and body. and you won't be able to inj the hair morphs. In the example render I've included I'm using Lollipop Hair which comes with fits for most of the gen 4 and gen 3 ladies.and uses morph injections. The key is to not "fit to" the hair, but "parent" it.

    First, make sure the genesis figure is morphed to the actor shape the hair is meant for and un-posed. Then make sure the genesis figure is not selected.
    Load the hair. It should appear in approximately the correct position. now click the Scene tab and right click on the hair name. You'll see a popup with Change Parent in it. Select this and you will see the hierarchy for the genesis figure. Select head to parent the hair.

    Now you will probably see the hair shift in size and position a bit. Use the translation and sizing tools under parameters tab for the hair until it fits to your satisfaction. The inj the morphs. Go into scene tab again and arrow down the hair hierarchy until you find "neck"; select this and go to parameters tab, You should now see Morphs as usable.

    I haven't tried this with other hair but if the morphs aren't in the neck, check the rest of the hierarchy.

    Now you can pose your figure, and the hair will stay with the head. You can use the hair morphs to prevent the hair from intersecting the genesis figure.

    Remember, if you change the figure to another morph, say a male or creature, you'll have to adjust the hair again to sit correctly on the new head shape and size. And you will want to return to zero pose on the genesis figure first to make the adjustments easier.

    I followed this method with the example image and have bent, twisted and tilted the head at the neck; then i used some wind and other morphs on the hair.
    Hope this helps.

    Had a headache all day practically. At first I thought it was from caffeine withdrawal since I'm trying to cut back on it. Been without since Friday or Saturday (not sure if the diet Snapple I had on Saturday had caffeine) so that was a logical conclusion. And the pain did seem to ease up when Fiance picked me up some unsweetened tea for lunch. But it's also hasn't gone away either.

    Because I still feel awful and Fiance is still working (but from home at least) we decided to have our cheat meal a little early this week. Cheat meal is usually on Saturday night but I did not feel able to cook, not with the way my head feels. So we had a hamburger and I got more tea. This means having to be good the rest of the week but that is the way it goes.

    I made another trip to Half-price Books this afternoon and came home with a Eudora Welty and 4 more of the Stephanie Plum series. I love to read.

    No caffeine?!! (Falls to knees and looks straight up) Noooooooooooooooo!!!!

    But did your headache improve? I do hope so. I'm plagued with them myself. And ragweed and goldenrod pollen is at an all-time high here and kickin' my a$$!

    Nope, still got the dratted thing. So I'm thinking it's now some other kind of headache. Probably sinus as the pain has moved to sit right between my eyes. >_<</p>

    4.5 in my experience retains morphs. That was the reason why I jumped to 4.5RC* so fast that my hair was like a flag in brisk breeze.

    ...did my fair share of beta testing with S3A when it was released and paid for the pleasure of doing so.

    GREAT JOB with the sunset Ps1borg, that's amazing!!


    I'm seeking some comments/feed back on the lighting of the below render. I'm going for realistic 'Sunrise' lighting, but at the same time I want to really bring out the foreground two main characters. (I'm also thinking I might give the render a soft blur in their background. But I'll play with that once the lighting is satisfactory)

    Ps1borg.. I think It was you that mentioned something of subtle short ranged pin lights. Looking at this render, what would you suggest? I'm very keen to learn :)

    ATM- there are 1x distant light (The main orange sunlight at 135%), 1x distant light Yellowish at 40%, 1 distant light white (Specular only) and one soft blue distant light at 35%.

    Yellow light + blue light = white light, is the same as red+green+blue lights because yellow is red+green. You will need to decide on a dominant primary colour. A sunrise in the sky, as it is framed now, will backlight the subjects leaving a strong rim of sunrise colour around their edges. Shadow will fall toward the viewer. I would use point lights very close to each subject to highlight detail you want people to see. Everything depends upon how much detail, for example you could lower the camera angle a little to make more sky in the frame and then silhouette the subjects against the sky. It depends what you want to do, your strategy right now seems to be to light everything equally, when a sunrise would leave deep shadows in places. I always gamma correct (2.2), although we had a thing for anti-gamma correct in the thread a while ago. If you gamma correct you get more bang for lighting bucks, if you don't all the bang is in whatever dark you want to play with. I always overcrank lights, turn a distant light up to say 166% and aim it toward the camera, see what happens as you adjust its angle. When you see something you like crank the light up to 266% and see what that does. Once you got one light more or less happening you aim a second at whatever place you want to highlight. I always set falloff, where available. Use linear falloff until you get comfortable with it. How much falloff depends upon what you are lighting. Falloff from point lights makes good textures look better. Always crank up a point light to more than 100% (usually 333% for me - I always step in thirds) ) and use the rolloff to prevent stuff blowing out and turning white. GC is helpful there as well. That's a lot to take in for now.
