Your GF watches movies in the nude???

 

Doesn't everyones? ;-)

Sure, but no one would want to see a render of me doing it ;)

Thanks for sharing the chairs and stuff :)

@#*%!! What's the secret to getting an image to show up in a post?

 

Aha! Looks like the ol' copy+paste works too!

That turned out well!

Thanks! There wasn't much to it. It came in as an OBJ, so no posing options. Only two material zones, so normal maps were made. I felt I had to do something to spruce it up a bit! (sweet! a cigar smoking emoticon!!!)

Reg, you've convinced me. From now on, all my characters bearing skin will also receive joint pads to cover up mesh creases!

Question for the glass experts. I'm trying something a little different and want to get a window pane for detective's office to read his title and name. I've tried a few approaches to get the texture nice and readable, but now it's reflecting within the glass pane and reads like it is both forward and backward. I'll put up a pic when it gets a little farther on this attempt.

Would an alpha map on the window help separate things?

Going to see if I can get the image posted. Some great stuff so far. You guys know me as Kenneth Rowe at the Daz Forum. Friends call me Mac, but I'll answer to just about anything.

But they are there for safety reasons not aesthetic. It may also interest people to know that the girls were exported from DS4 (needed collsion detection on the Nun outfit) while everything else was exported from DS3 as the spray tool doesn't work for me in DS4.

The cool thing about REALITY is it works like the real world. A sign on a Detective's door in the real world would be painted-on letters one side and/or stickied-on one side. Your letters should be on a separate plane (1 pixel distance) from the "glass" and ALpha mapped and that should solve your problem. And try "architectural glass" if you haven't already.

You should place the texture in the transmission channel of the glass, set the reflection channel to almost oure white, and set the glass to archi. Using an alpha channel with glass is not a good idea, it will make part of the glass disappear. There is no need to use the alpha channel unless you want to create irregular shape glass objects.

You are most generous and kind, sir!  Thank you.

Thanks for the replies on the glass issue. I do have the texture in the transmission slot with a reflection of 246 across the board and architectual as the glass setting.

I hadn't thought about doing the plane for it! Good idea! I ended up frosting it for the time being as I tried a few other things in the mean time with the same results. I do plan on doing a fog prop version, so I'll add the plane for the next round

I'm not sure if I'm going to put this right but this is what occurs to me...

Is it possible that your glass object is using the same surface for the front and back of the pane? Thus you are in fact puting the letters on both sides as byproduct of how the object is made? If so the plane in front is going to be the safest way to do it, or finding a window made differently.

To Chalrey I will explain a bit here since ppl who are following my stories on D/A wont have the plot given away its going to get into gory detail (such is the power of Reality:) the v4 guts works quite well with genesis..... Its basically a nightmare sequence to open my current episode..

Hi guys! Nice to see the Rendo thread is a busy one there are some really nice renders already.

Does anyone have a recipe for Jade? I remember seeing a dragon somewhere that had the precise color I'm looking for.  I think the Stanford Happy Buddha would look a lot better in jade or maybe even bronze than the green glass I tried him in.

This was just a test to see how Lux would handle the 1 million triangles the model contains, I started the render at 1 pm Friday and let it bake over the weekend for 96 hours straight. it was still rendering happily when I came in to work this morning.

The DAZ site is all fraked up

I feel anger for the 'tards that be over there.

 

The store has some namby pamby comment section... Like I need a longer page to scroll through all so I can comment on something I haven't bought yet.  They lost my first order completely.  I have no idea why yet, but they've been paid so what gives?

Its like they hired a newb to run the show. "You need this wowwie wizywig crappola!" "Cool Dude."

Couldn't they test it before going live?  In software that is all we do.  If you find a programmer coding more than 20% of the time, he's incompetant.  Documentation, and testing... is the other 80%.  It seems pretty obvious to me that they had a very poor set of test cases.  (It worked once... SHIP IT!  Oh... doesn't work under those conditions?)

And timing... Here's our latest test release let us know if you have any issues.  POOF! Site down.  Have they heard of this thing called MANAGEMENT?  Its not something you step in.

PFFFT!

 

They say Genius is step away from madness.   Lets just say they are one step beyond....

NOTE to Renderosity... copy Daz's old webpage and put them out of business.**

Its more like Daz Genius--Tsssssst (injesting puff of weed) I got it man! Lets put out a buggy version of studio and make sure no one can get support for it!!

Its like 2K video hockey if they flush theselves down the drain it will be their own doing. I certainly am not purchasing another item until this is resolved. They are promising a make up for it sale on FB.

Am I understanding this right? They will be charging again for the official studio 4.5??

Not only that if you install 4.5  and decide to go back for some reason it will apperantly mess up your previous saved stuff. I have 2 words to fix that System Restore...

For my needs I can stay with Stuido 3-4 Reality-lUX just fine...

 

Providing it stays free I may change but not before Reality is compatible and they have an official version..

Judging from their Christmas dinnner pic, the strongest thing they ingest is tonic water.

But I agree that they're making a hash of it all again.
