>Daz youtuber's for the newbs:>ParmyI like that guy, but I don't understand why he quit his job to make comics with Daz. He should atleast make visual novels if he wants to make a living from this.
I'm glad to see that Daz3D has been stepping up both their Asian and Tranny offerings as of late, It feels like the dawning of a new and better era. A glorius future of Asian waifu futas awaits us all, fellow Daz Chads.
>>838192The reason you see so much more asians on the store is because some jp people have became offical pa's for daz studio.

Can I just use metahumans when making my game instead of using pre-made models? Is there any reason not to?Sorry if it's a silly question.
>>838397What kind of game are you trying to make? Metahumans currently have very little clothing available for them. If you already have Daz assets one thing you can do is put a Metahuman head on a Daz body and this gives you access to all of the Daz clothing.https://youtu.be/nxJfZNOUmbE
>>838399An small XCom clone. Metahumans look very good, that's why I want those, but I was not aware of the problems with clothing. Thank you for the suggestion!Any other options? Daz has a bad reputation, but I don't know enough about it to know the reason. Does that reason apply to the clothing too?
>>838400Daz's bad reputation is mostly because of their lackluster software and marketing practices. The benefits are their fairly high quality and completely rigged 3D human models, the ability to easily apply morphs to them to create custom characters and a huge library of clothing and other assets for them. The bodies and clothing are especially useful as you can always swap a different head onto it such as a Metahuman (which has superior facial rigging for animation). The annoying things about Daz are that you have to plan your buying around their sales and you have to pay for interactive licenses (which go on sale for $5-10 at the cheapest) per product to legally use them in a commercial 3D video game and that their storefront is very unintuitive to search through. The alternative to Daz would be Reallusion's Character Creator 3 which I personally don't have experience with.
>>838403Thank you! Very informative and to the point!I would like to hear other anons' experience with Reallusion's Character Creator 3.
>>838400Basically you are going to want to acquire clothed bodies from somewhere so you can paste a Metahuman head onto them if you want to go the Metahuman route.Another Metahuman head paste example:https://youtu.be/7iCMspltj24
>>838405Thanks! Seem to be a common technique. That gives me confidence. Any experience with Reallusion's Character Creator?
>>838404>Reallusion's Character Creator 3HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
>>838400>XcomThe dumbass zoomer-tier 3D remakes from a few years back or actually good, tactically rich old 2D Xcom?
>>838408Anon, my dream game (that I'm not attempting at the moment, since I'm a greenhorn) would be [spoiler]JA2 1.13 with modern graphics[/spoiler]. So the old XCom. But I'm keeping the scope small, at the beginning at the very least. >>838407Can you tell me about it, anon, please?
>>838409I've only tried it a few times. I don't even recall if they had their own assets. They existed as an alternate way to use daz assets and are pretty much a "why bother" software. Though prior threads this would be shilled pretty often by one die hard fan.
>>838414Ok. I trust the software with its dedicated general and you guys. >>838403Are the sales seasonal or on a per-item basis?https://www.daz3d.com/free-3d-models#blackAh, shit. Weekly freebies? I'm starting my hoarding today.
>>838418>Are the sales seasonal or on a per-item basis?Their mostly seasonal with random American holidays thrown in and occasional flash sales on groups of items. If you do decide to use Daz you will want to use Genesis 3 & Genesis 8/8.1 as your base and buy clothing assets for those. Genesis 3 clothing assets should autofit onto Genesis 8/8.1 besides the footwear. >Ah, shit. Weekly freebies? I'm starting my hoarding today.Their freebies are always garbage and textures for really old figures.
>>838422Thank you, anon! Very informative!I just saw the freebies and yeah, they're trash. But at least it will help me to learn the workflow before I commit actual money.
>>838422>>838423Seems that the interactive licenses are per product, but "bundles" also count, so getting a bundle means saving on those extra interactive licenses.Thank you so much, /DAZ/! You've shown me a very interesting path.
>>838418>trusting anons>sales questioninstall the daz-deals addon for your browser. You can see price history. Change settings to show a long price history.
>>838428Thank you! I will. >not trusting anons with a dedicated generalI trust you. Of course I will double-check before committing any dosh, but I believe the metadaz will be a good combo.

>>838591Morphs are deformations of the base 3D mesh.
>>838591don't listen to these guys about morphs and all that shit. Just start by getting Victoria 8.1 it's the base model that most of the characters are based on https://www.daz3d.com/victoria-8-1>Fiddle around with it and follow a Youtube tutorial on how to get clothing and items into Daz. >Once you got some clothing on her do a posing tutorial and try to find a tutorial on morphs this is how you can create what her face looks like or. what size her tits are>Once you get comfortable with morphs and posing the girl>find some HDRI environment.

Victoria 8.1 is a morph of the Genesis 8.1 Female mesh that is included with the Genesis 8 Starter Essentials. All Genesis characters sold are morphs of the Genesis base figures included in the Starter Essentials.
>>838458I want to release the game and not get sued, anon
>>838631Do games/apps that use daz even licensed
>>838635You only need an interactive license when using the 3d meshes in an app/game. 2d rendered images do not require it.
>>838636I know that, I was talking more about peole who don't have the licence like these apps. https://play.google.com/store/apps/collection/cluster?clp=igM4ChkKEzg0MDEwMzE0MDI1NzQ0MDgyNzAQCBgDEhkKEzg0MDEwMzE0MDI1NzQ0MDgyNzAQCBgDGAA%3D:S:ANO1ljK2oVU&gsr=CjuKAzgKGQoTODQwMTAzMTQwMjU3NDQwODI3MBAIGAMSGQoTODQwMTAzMTQwMjU3NDQwODI3MBAIGAMYAA%3D%3D:S:ANO1ljJ70aw
>>838637If the Daz model moves or bends or whatever according to user input, you need an interactive license
>>838637It's possible to get away with not getting the licenses but Daz could sue you at any point if they wanted to. It makes more sense just to buy them on sale for $5 dollars each (especially if you only need a few) than risk having to endure litigation.

>>8387533DCG police>>838760It's pretty much confirmed that most Daz users are legit boomers.
>>838753If you're posting under a name, they can check in their database whether that name bought something. They might ask you for a receipt of purchase, and threaten to sue you if you don't buy the assets or take the renders down.Would they bother, though?
>>838751DAZdevs can't even keep the software working well enough on Windows, and they add a new platform? Yeah, good luck with the extra work. Must have been a management decision.
>>838764>They might ask you for a receipt of purchase, and threaten to sue you if you don't buy the assets or take the renders down.Lmao never going to happen
>>838766Their management seems fairly incompetent to me. They have an enormous library of 3D assets that would be perfect for indie devs going the pre-made asset route and Daz is utterly failing at their intended goal of integration into the video game industry.Their advertising is also laughably bad:https://youtu.be/mDc1ZcoucsY
TOP QUALITY PRODUCTS RELEASED DAILY
>>838771you cant really use their assets for games as 99% of them are NOT optimized for real time 3D. So unless you mean 2D games then I dont see it
>>838777That's still true but becoming less so with things like Nanite easing the poly limitation. Once Nanite is implemented for characters I can see Daz being completely viable, but also likely to be out-competed by much higher quality, higher poly models.
>>838778>Nanite easing the poly limitationthat is for inanimate objects and have some clear limitations. Also polycount is the LEAST of your worries when trying to use DAZ content in games. All the shaders, textures, rigging, UV maps and such have to be completely redone or your game will run and look like utter garbage. Nanite is not the be all end all that many people who havent even used it or looked up how it functions actually think it is. I love nanite but I see why too many people dreaming of a day where they can just sculpt and make 3D easy mode and not optimize and think in advance.
>>838780>All the shaders, textures, rigging, UV maps and such have to be completely redone or your game will run and look like utter garbage.All true, but I still think it is entirely doable for a small scale indie game without a lot of characters on the screen at once.>Nanite is not the be all end all that many people who havent even used it or looked up how it functions actually think it is. I love nanite but I see why too many people dreaming of a day where they can just sculpt and make 3D easy mode and not optimize and think in advance.I'm just a hobbyist talking out of my ass, isn't it likely that Nanite will ultimately be usable on skeletal meshes?
>>838787>I still think it is entirely doable for a small scale indie game without a lot of characters on the screen at oncesure I meant more that you need to actually do some work. Cant just drag and drop. >Nanite will ultimately be usable on skeletal meshes?Nanite is tired to the deffered render pipeline of the new UE5 and in essence "decimate" your meshes down to fit a set total vertex count based on pixels or manual. Its a way to automate level of details so you dont have to do it for all the static props in the environment. Problem with skeletal meshes is that they use weight maps that applies directly to the vertexes that make up the mesh. So converting something to nanite will break your rigging. So for things you want to animate you will still need to create a basemesh and then add levels of detail manually. Nanite is here to help with all the none character stuff.Could nanite work with weight maps and such? I mean I dont know maybe? But you would need to consider nanite in your work pipeline then or convert and rework a model to work with it.
>>838787modern GPUs cant handle an absurd polycount so if you made something small scale you could properly get away with using DAZ stuff if you simply fixed the UVs, textures and redid the shaders.

When I try to export my daz model to zbrush I get multiple file not found error messages in zbrush, online tutorials don't help. Anyone encountered this problem before?
I'm using Daz To Blender Bridge, everything works fine except the scalp. It renders fine in Eevee engine, but in Cycles it's glitching like this. Anyone knows how to fix this?
>>838875I know the answer but I'd prefer if you made something worth posting to /3/.
>>838875the scalp is Z fighting with the head. Just scale it a little more and set it so it does not throw any shadows.
>>838771That video is really awful. They should just be honest and rebrand as a porn game. "Near-photoreal pornography of any fetish with minimal effort" is a strategy that could resonate with millions of potential customers.

Anything new from Emmanon? I haven't seen their posts in aco or here for a while.
>>838777HouseParty uses Genesis 3 and Virt-a-Mate uses Genesis 2
>>838946I mean, the real Emmanon
>>838958He probably quit Daz to pursue a more fulfilling hobby.
>>838960Not surprising. That seems to happen once a user here starts churning out really impressive stuff and using more non-daz software than Daz. Good launchpad for them. If only I could get that to work for me.
>>838926>>838958yeah busy at work really so havent had much time. Still here though. Working on my Belle bookworm outfit. >>838960haha I wouldnt call this a hobby. More like a side project. >>838961I really got back into Maya now which is nice.

>>839031Judgemental dog fears the march of technological progress.
>>839019Not bad, face is a little uncanny, rest is fine.
>>839019Looks decent, its pretty rare to see not bad looking anime char in daz, but maybe make eyes a little bit smaller
>>838372well, at least the regards are kind
>>839019something about the eyes is off
>>839019she looks retarded (i'd fuck her)
>>839020That's what happens when you actually take the time to tweak a character from a shitty preset into something good. The others are just the base character or close enough to it that they look just as bad.
>>838395She looks retarded, I like that.
Better? I think I managed to dial out a bit of the weirdness with the eyes. It still needs more refinement, though.
>>839105Where's the penis?
>>839105can you darken her pupils so they arent as flat and grey? I mean that is really all I would change. Maybe add some blemishes to her skin so its less plastic looking (unless that is the look you are going for!)

The only thing good about Daz3D are futanari renders.
I really want to know what's new in DAZ 5 except 'it runs on faggy Macs now'
Why do fags still use genesis 3 models? Any advantage to using them over Genesis 8?
>>839170Gen3 girls don't look like trannies.
>>839132Yes, futas and lolisAnd even futa lolis
>>839170well gen 3 models much higher poly count before subdivision which makes them easier to do custom sculpting on. That is about it.
>>839107Futa renders are available for download exclusively on my Patreon at very competitive pricing. >>839107I disabled the glossiness on her cornea and increased her bump map intensity to make her look a little less plastic. I don't really want her to look too blemished as she is supposed to be a youthful character.

>>839346what’s the most created celeb on daz? lydia carter?
>>839416Daz basically exists to create Hermione porn.
>>839346This guys stuff seems kind of hit or miss on its own but his face sculpts would probably be useful in mixing morphs together.
>>839430...also futa, loli and beastiality
>>83944590% of the time featuring Emma Watson.
>>839469besides me creating tons of smut with Emma I actually cant seem to find that much. Its the reason I started making it as I wanted to find some Emma smut and got disappointed
>>839178genesis 3 and genesis 8 have the absolute same topologygenesis 2 is the one with higher base topology (but not by much)
>>839477ahh so it was gen 2 that was very different. But I guess you can also still make HD morphs for Gen 3 and not gen 8.

how come all the daz coom games have the same lightning/skin? Like if I played 10 coom games back to back, I can pretend they take place in the same house. What lightning setup is it?
>>839475There hasn't been any CG celeb porn because almost zero talent is needed to Photoshop vanilla celeb fap. And anyone with the hard earned skills needed to create good celeb likeness CG model most definitely work in industries to bother with porn/Daz.
>>839590Have you actually tried pose and render any of those Daz celeb models? They either looked nothing like the promo without the exact angle or lighting or just plain sucked as a character model.
>>839590I only have Sangriart's Emmeline, which is decently close, and a model called Lyzia, which is supposed to be based off Olsen. That one's a fucking goblin, ugliest model in my library

Does anyone know a good Daz artist who created looks in commission?
can 8.1 poses work on genesis 8 models?
>>839620Yes the only thing G8 can't use are face poses made with the new face rig.
Is it even worth to do animation in Daz or should i just port my shit to Blender? I know blender animation tools are like 100 times better compered to daz, but i'm not trying to do some complex shit just simple coom animations
>>839604For me its the unnatural legs length
>>839611are you asking for someone who uses DAZ who can be commissioned to customize a character for you? because if not then i have no idea what you're saying
>>839624Yeah exactly. Sorry my mobile phone wordbook messed everything up. Yes, look commissions
>>839623Yeah I may have overdone it there too. I wanted to make her look sort of gangly and creepy yet cute at the same time.
>>839630Deviantart has artists taking on Daz commissions. However, for likeness of real people I think those you can afford will likely do a disappointing job 99% of the time and those who can do a good job like those from Artstation you probably cannot afford.
>>839630getting a completely custom texture and morph done for likeness of a person is very time consuming. So its a lot more expensive than commissioning some outfit or a bunch of images.
>>839637Hopefully with more industry tools like Unreal's Digital Humans we pervs can get good quality customized likeness models in 3-5 years at reasonable prices.
>>839630How much would you pay for headsculpt?
>>839644For a good result? Between 80 or 100 EUR.
>>839650Assuming you want to use it on a Genesis character and no texture work, give me your details and we'll get something going. I scultpted faces in the triple digits starting from a genesis head. Also no baking, HD morphs only. Also celebs only which meqns you wont be able to market it.
>>839658So is there some of your work accessible?
>>839658show work please or give a link
>>839661>AkeytsuIs this actually good?
>>839659>>839662This is years old, one of my first attempts at finding a sustainable pipeline using the Genesis 2 figure. The face belongs to YouTuber Sarah Close: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-hWfFDZDDA&ab_channel=SarahCloseBodysculpt is mine also. Hair is some tough-chick hair from the Daz Store, the texture is your basic Genesis 2 Female texture. I was trying to use Daz to make comics at the time but one thing let to another and now I'm just interested in 3D.This render was my first time ever trying out Marmoset. Notice how I couldn't even figure out transparency maps for the cornea. It was never my intention at the time to achieve a super-realistic style because I was going to trace over the renders anyway so why bother.
>>839678looks pretty cool anon
>>839678did they make the musculature on gen 3 worse in every way on purpose to sell hd morphs?
>>839683No.Genesis 2 is a far more advance figure from a technical standpoint that Genesis 3/8. Even more advance than any 3D character from any AAA studio. Unfortunately for Daz3D they couldn't afford for the industry to adopt their proprietary TriAx technology. so they eventually compromised and walked a few steps back and came out with Genesis 3/8.A few years back people were gushing all over Pose Space Deformation (Houdini even made a video showcasing the feature). Daz Studio has had Pose Space Deformation for decades except they call them Joint Controlled Morphs (JCM's).Getting really into the business side of 3D production I now understand it's less about the technology and more about people trying to make money. For instance the sheer amount of AI tech out there is mindboggling but nobody is adopting it because it's all proprietary software created by some guys as part of a school thesis and they want to get paid first (which is natural). Big companies aren't smart enough to reverse engineer their ideas (this is likely due to incompetence seeing how the thesis itself is literally an instruction manual), so their strategy is to let the little guys to do all the work and create an easy-to-use pipeline at which point they buy them out. For example Take Two recently bought Dynamixyz: a facial mocap software and service. Dynamixyz had a staff of like 6 guys total, accountant included.
>>839683>>839686"far more advanced"this looks like fucking shityou dazlets have really bad taste
>>839696>this looks like fucking shit>you dazlets have really bad tastefurther elaborate?
>>839698>replying to meme spouter
>>839686>their strategy is to let the little guys to do all the work and create an easy-to-use pipeline at which point they buy them outI've seen this happen with the Daz to Unreal Bridge. The vast majority of the development was done by a single guy named David Vodhanel then Daz bought him out and pretend that they developed it themselves.
This looks like literal shit, I’m sorry
there are too many split ends in all of my hair.>>839711what does
>>839683me on the left
>>839696>this looks like fucking shitYou have no understanding of the technology if you think looks gud = advanced. These figures are as aesthetic as the artist is willing to make them. Your statement is like saying that "I tried Maya once but couldn't make a Pixar movie so I'm sorry but Maya is shit".
any good lightning tutorials?
>>839728These are good basic tutorials lighting in Daz.https://youtu.be/GG9iKhslT3chttps://youtu.be/Nq719C6NRvkhttps://youtu.be/A0VRj2rcwJchttps://youtu.be/6tHkkhjOYuI
>>839728https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhlbmDRu-Zs&ab_channel=RaukoThis guy is unmatched.
>>838175Is there a place where people share non-original characters like from video games recreated in or ported to Daz?
>>839773There's a guy on deviantart who ported like 1000 models to daz, his name is Shinteo or something and all of his shit is free
>>8397733d-load has some if you filter by the franchise the character is from.
>>839678Would fuck vigorously/10
What are some good lewd environments? None of the bdsm torture shit please.
>>839728What do you mean exactly? If you want to learn how to properly light a scene you should look at photography tutorials.
Credit card in on hand, dick in the other.
>>839823Historical lewds are very underrated. Viking, Rome, Ancient Greece, Egypt etc.
>>839934why would you make something like that?
>>839941Hmm, there are some nice Egyptian pools.
Please send help. I can't stand rendering even preview renders under 4k. I have a 2080 so most scenes aren't a problem but hell, some take forever even without falling back to CPU.
>>839536I used a 750Ti up until 2020. It could be WAY worse. Get 2 more gigs of ram and stop whining.
>>839934No bulge, no sale. Women without penises are for blenderturds, DAZchads only render chicks with dicks.
>>839773Is Elianeck a pedo?
>>839990Like the pampers company.
>>839686JCM's have been done in maya since the introduction of set driven key's (maya's initial release). Pose space deformers expanded from that using radial basis functions for blending which allowed for an exponential increase in complexity. Triax weights are cool, but they are labor intensive to author as they they have a weighting for each axis which makes them a pretty difficult thing to visualize for your average Daz user. Hell even most character TD's would have a hard time with that. Triax needed better authoring tools for it to take off. Given the advancements that have been made in skinning decomposition perhaps someone will revisit triax weighting with an emphasis on workflow.When it comes to turning research into production tools you actually have things backwards, It's actually the academics that don't have the relevant skill sets to turn their Phd-ware into viable production tools. Their theories are too often incredibly niche and lack the ability to support broader application and workflows without years of additional work and tons of funding. The standards for getting a paper published in an academic journal are entirely different than the standards for getting adoption by a multi-million dollar project. There is nothing wrong with that by the way.
>>839994>Their theories are too often incredibly niche and lack the ability to support broader application and workflows without years of additional work and tons of fundingI agree but this doesn't go against my point. I genuinely do not understand why devs don't just take the ideas from academic papers and run with it. It's not even a legality thing. I looked it up, patents aren't international. One company can create an independent research center in bumfuck nowhere and just reverse engineer the ideas then "sell" them back to the original company. China's been doing this for decades.But like you said there is a mental threshold. Academics (or coders) have no imagination, they cannot conceive of practical applications for their tools and therefore they just leave their work unfinished and go on to work at Google or something.
>>839982There are no guys with tits johnny, only chicks with dicks.
>>839999Developers (in house and commercial) do develop ideas from papers into tools, however the number of papers that contain work that is viable for becoming a production tool in existing pipelines is like finding a needle in a haystack. Even more so for commercial packages where the idea has to be generalized to a degree that allows it to be adopted by diverse pipelines. Sometimes it takes years for production pipelines and hardware to develop to a point where a previously published paper is suddenly relevant. These high concept ideas also often entail developing multiple tools to support a workflow that allows a production artist to be effective.This is expensive work that carries a high risk that few people are willing to undertake in a corporate environment where you are continuously having to prove your worth.
>>839993don't tell me you don't see a difference
>>840020Whatever. Maya went to shit after AW went belly up and Autocuck took over. There is no more R&D done on Maya just slapping on some 3rd party plugins.
>check Daz sales as part of morning routine>WE WUZ MERMAIDS N SHYET
>>839641https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3onQNWCGQkThis fag seems to have come up with a good method to transfer different character geo to the metahuman rig and have everything work. If they ever reply to questions or release the script it should make it easier to merge MetaHumans and Daz models.
>>840207Damn that's cool. I bet he won't share his info or script and will continue making videos on his small channel to dab on people.
I'm trying to set up a basic loop here so I can build off of it further down the timeline,I'm using a few cubes as targets for "persistently point x at y" but when I copy all the keyframes some of the cubes fuck off to inf on the Z axis.Can anyone tell me why this is happening?
>>840216Creative use of targeting objects but just export it to your proper 3D app of choice via the various bridges.
>>840216Stop animating in daz dipshit.
>>840218fuck off, I fixed it anyway
>>840203I considered myself a "liberal" two years ago but now I automatically give anything with too much melanin the lowest possible rating, in all platforms.
>>840225t. Gen Y Boomer here, diversity wasn't a problem in media while I grew up. Now it's obviously forced. But in the interest of staying on topic..What are some good food props!?

>>840275Pinup-style poses with emphasis on her long legs and butt. I hope it's not too much to ask on top of your usual stuff.
>>840256>>840275Hey, cant you tell what model and costume that is?
>>840288Per prior threads, iirc. It's a custom character they created with an amalgam of different parts for the clothing. Such a babe!
you ARE keeping fit, right /3/?
>>840297Check out SquarePeg3D's patreon for a ton of GF8 bulge freebies (sub not required for his freebies).There are some true trouser snake morphs.
>>840305>G8i don't like stinky G8.
>>840288custom is a mix of home made stuff and edited / retextured premade assets.

https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/daz-3d-announces-exciting-new-offering--enterprise-licensing-301337877.html Who the fuck is tafi?
>>840203>>840225Y'all crackers will really complain about anything
>>840425>Who the fuck is tafi?From a previous thread:Originally called "Morph3d". They sold official daz characters ported to unity until they rebranded as tafi and now have a really shitty vr character creator.DAZ's CEO came from Cricut and he wanted from day one to turn the company into a video game asset store. He created Morph3D which burned millions in VC as it stumbled to provide Unreal then Unity assets thanks to poor compatibility, API changes, and generally being blindsided by the rest of the industry not needing them.My guess is that the VC team who hired him to replace Dan Farr were substantially displeased with the existing DS/Poser content market and wanted something bigger with fewer low-end competitors and with more proprietary tech in it. This would also explain the extent to which DS development has been gutted.Tafi might suck ass but it's the future of the company now and DAZ exists mostly as a portfolio to make Tafi look more mature than it is. I don't see a long term vision for DAZ3D as an entity other than continuing to poop out new versions of the same basic type of model and original base character packs. Someone at the board will eventually tire of this.https://maketafi.com/
>>840428This isn't related, but do you know what happened to sinespace? It was some type of virtual world that used daz models and was supposed to be the second life killer.
>>840429>do you know what happened to sinespace?No. This is my first time ever hearing of it. Sorry.
>>840428In all fairness it appears that Daz3D (Tafi) has managed to have a sustainable market because they cater to casuals rather than professionals. They're basically to 3D what mobile games are to the gaming market.They're not unique in trying to cater to the gaming industry but they are unique in that they're the only ones that managed to survive this long.
>>840451True, compared to the overpriced bullshit assets at CGTrader or Turbosquid
>>840407anon I really like that background, any tutorial on how to make something like that? I guess you added it in photoshop right?
>>840505i uploaded the render with a transparent background to colormind, and used their ai to generate a pallet from the image. screenshot the pallet, bring it into photoshop, rotate it 45 degrees, then just stretch it to cover the entire image. ezpz.

Is someone using CC3 and iClone here?If yes i wonder can you port animation from iClone to Daz?
*sells the same thing for three days*
>>840599I think DAZ coomers shun IClown because the figures are sexless Barbie dolls.
>you still can't sort characters on the daz website by race
>>840617Daz lacks many quality of life options.
>>840617i literally use pirate sites to search the store, because the actual daz store search is completely useless.

where can people get Overwatch models to make porn?
>>840656Are you trying to pose/render in Daz? Or somewhere else? If somewhere else like blender, smutba.seThere are also various character conversions made for Daz.
>>840657yeah, I'm trying to pose and render them in Daz. I'm trying to find accurate models of them though. Is there a way to convert the blender models to Daz? maybe even change the skin textures like pic related
>>840659Squarepeg3D converted outfits for Tracer, Zarya, Mercy and that one mexican.Forender has a bunch of the game rips straight ported to Daz. Just search for those on the usual sites. Note that daz clothing and stuff wont work on them. If you want nude and stuff the best option is finding some animated-looking base character and using the ripped clothing from SP3D.
>>839604Does anyone have any advice for cracking something like this? Arguably the hardest hurdle Ive found in daz is making a not-nightmare-fuel anime-character out of 'trying to be photoreal' assets
Is there a download or pirate torrent package of houses, neighborhoods, or building assets for free or do you guys buy everything from cgtrader, etc?
looks like our girl (boy) is ready for her (his) first space mission! the standard issue male uniform sure is revealing though...
>>840665I found using the anime character morphs from these to be helpful. (You can find some free on 3d-load).https://www.deviantart.com/shinteo/gallery/66847036/daz3d-downloadshttps://www.deviantart.com/checkertoo/gallery/76108631/downloadshttps://www.deviantart.com/meradedaz/gallery/77835164/daz-studio-downloadsThis has also been really useful for female faces.https://www.daz3d.com/anime-faces-for-genesis-8-femaleI have been struggling a lot more with making decent males. So far most of my attempts have looked like total abominations.
>>840665Another useful piece of advice would be to use less detailed skin textures and turn down or off the normal & bump maps.

I have 43 scenes I have to render over the weekend on a 1060 the previous scenes I had to render were 40 min renders any tips to optimize my time? any tips on how I'll be able to do this?
>>840725>any tips on how I'll be able to do this?pray.
>>840724non-nudie because i like the picture.
>>840725Have you seen this?https://www.daz3d.com/render-queueIf you have 43 scenes averaging 40 minutes it should take roughly 28.7 hours of non-stop rendering. It's at least mathematically possible if you don't fry your GPU. lol
>>840729>>840725this works great, but if you plan to use it, run a few simple renders in a batch to see how it works. one setting, if i recall correctly, renders everything, but saves them on top of each other, overwriting each render until you have 1 picture left, labelled "render 47 of 47" lol.
>>840728I like the backgrounds you've been doing for these.
>>840656Shinteo on devianart have pretty much all ow models
>>840725what kind of scenes? If they're similar, then why not separate the background and characters/props? Then you can just put them together in photoshop.
God, I love Katy Perry so much. I may actually buy this one to support my boy Vicey
Are there any AI that make renders less shitty already?

DAZlet here, how do you get characters to pick up loose clothing like a bra? or have clothes on the ground? is it a specific morph and pose?
>>840823>is it a specific morph and pose?If the author made one, yes. Else, you could try using dforce and then just saving it as a morph.
>>840823i don't know what the "official" method is, but what i do is export clothing to blender, select the main part, and delete all the loose parts in edit mode. i export it, bring it back into daz, and use the transfer utility on the new garment. after that, i use the geometry editor to select a few polygons the character is going to "hold", and assign it a new surface. i add dforce to the garment, then set the strength to max on every surface except the "held" surface i just made. then i just simulate on default settings.
