Converting conforming clothes to dynamic clothes

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 7565

Conforming skirts and dresses can be a real pain to pose, especially when the character pose is more extreme or the character is heavily morphed. Dynamic skirts and dresses have the advantage that Poser 5 can do the cloth fitting for you.This tutorial will show how to convert an existing conforming clothing item to a dynamic one. For this tutorial I will use PhilCs miniskirt for Judy, available as a freebie on his site, www.philc.net, and of course I will use Judy.Poser 5 is required; dynamic cloth is not available in Poser 4, Poser Pro Pack, Poser Artist or DAZ|Studio. SR4 is highly recommended, but this tutorial will work for all versions of Poser 5 even the original unpatched version.

From Blender to Poser the Easy Way

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 2542 / System Requirements: Windows or Mac for Poser; Linux, Mac or Windows for Blender, Poser 6+, Obj2Cr2 Python Script (PhilC)

Importing 3D clothing meshes into Poser to make conforming cloth just got a whole lot easier with PhilC's Obj2Cr2 Python script utility. If you do your prep work right - and there's not really all *that* much that needs doing - you will find yourself freed from the frustration of that bane of Poser content developers: the "Setup Room".A caveat: this is how *I* import clothing made in Blender3D. I may have left a tickbox unticked or left some key point unsaid. Please let me know if you find yourself at a loss as to how to continue. Be happy to help. Another caveat: this tutorial was written a long time ago Blender 2.45?? - WOW!)... I only recently discovered that during a website reshuffle some images were moved, which I've restored. The tutorial still works even in the newer versions of Blender and Poser. I've almost completely gone to dynamic cloth, however, so do not avail myself much of mechanisms that facilitate modelling conforming cloth anymore.

This tutorial is derived from my latest book "3D Game Textures: Create Professional Game Art Using Photoshop, Second ed."
