Using The DAZ Studio Shield Shader

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 708 / System Requirements: DAZ Studio 3+

This is intended to fill that "Well, how do I use the damn thing!" void that a few of you must have felt after downloading my DAZ Studio Shader For S.E.Asian Shields ( http://www.renderosity.com/mod/freestuff/details.php?item_id=70322 ) at the start of the year. Yes, I've only just discovered that I'd forgotten to include any advice in the ReadMe about how to actually use the shield shader! Hopefully this 16 page guide (mostly screenshots) should remedy the situation. Note: the advice here is just for using the ShieldTMS(Full) shield shader via the Surfaces tab of the DAZ Studio User Interface. It does not cover the generic DMS(Full)/TMS(Full) shaders, and it does not cover using ShaderMixer. I was thinking about doing separate guides for those but never got round to it.
