Come learn the art of 3D computer generated art and animation. This blog deals with the lessons learned and the art created by Robert G. Male using DazStudio from Daz3D.
Also covered are the ancillary software, tools, techniques, and processes needed both before and after rending in the 3D software.
Once upon a time I bought a set and I tested it out with a render. That render got lost and remained so for a number of months. It was meant to be about the fourth quick render or earlier. Now finally, here it is...
One of the most exciting elements to the Super Suit is the ability to bulk it up, including by section, each with seams at different depths as well. It's very exciting to go from a spandex suit to more heavily fortified fare, including full on hard body armour. I'm just beginning to look into the fur-like materials now. I know from some of the other materials that applying the maps to the suit opens up a lot of new dials and settings to manipulate. One I find intriguing that I want to work with is a set of controls labelled as Velvet--there is also a Crushed Velvet material. I do know that some of these settings only become apparent when rendered. It appears that some of the effects rely on more than just one dial or even a specific set of them. There are a number of controls involved in this fur including one mysteriously labelled as Image, but it has no listed map or image file associated with it, so I do not know what it draws on, or how to manipulate it to other ends, like say making it feathers instead of fur--for even virtual skins for the character, not just clothes.
There are a lot of options when you buy some of the add-on sets such as in the bundle I bought. It's not all that easy to find some of them though. One thing to remember is to look in the Shader Presets folder and then under Super Suit. If your Daz is like mine then you will have two of these because it thinks some of them are for Poser even though they work in Daz anyway. I still have a lot of exploration and experimentation to go with this suit.
