Title: Christmas Gift Page (reminder)
Post by: DarkAngel on November 01, 2017, 05:59:19 PM
Halloween was a big hit with all that visited, extremely successful and where it was posted many were waiting to hear about it this year...YAY

What to do:

Any item does not need to be themed but having some themed would be great.

1. All items must be zipped with a read me letting folks know their limits on usage.

2. A promotional image (or how many you need to show what they will get)
 800 x 800 px jpg.

What can you give?? I am so happy you asked ... anything you create:
    Models (characters, props, etc.)
    Backgrounds
    Textures (animals, buildings, people,clothes, etc.)
    Merchant Resources
    Painted hair
    Morphs/Poses
    The list is endless -- questions? Then contact me. (http://thefantasiesattic.net/attic/index.php?action=contact)
   
I would like to have them by December by the 15th ---
however I will take them all the way to the end of each of those months.

You can let me know when I can grab them and from where.
If you need to upload them just contact me and I will give you the info.

Thank you in advance for your support in this gift giving time.

For once I am going to do something a little bit out of my comfort zone and create something for this. I've never done anything for freebies or sales items yet. So, If you are willing to make sure my work is up to par then I will make something(s) for the Christmas gifts. To be honest, it's a bit scary in a way lol

Post by: CalieVee on November 20, 2017, 02:07:56 PM
I have 2 models finished with textures but still having trouble getting them saved to work in both Daz and Poser. I might have to ask for help on these.  Can't do anything new after this as my hands have decided to give me grief (own fault for cleaning two houses and moving into the second one and over did it) so after I give my hands a bit of break from any work I should be back in full swing.  The models are finished as I said, and have textures, even set up properly in folders, just can't seemed to get them saved properly.
Title: Re: Christmas Gift Page (reminder)
Post by: sidherose on November 20, 2017, 04:32:24 PM
What about the Poser files can you not get to save 'right', CalieVee? What extension did you save them to - like .mc5, .mc6 or .pz2? And which folder did you save them to?

I can't help you with DAZ at all.
Title: Re: Christmas Gift Page (reminder)
Post by: Aelin on November 21, 2017, 10:10:12 AM
What kind of stuff are you trying to do? Clothing, prop?
If it's clothing I never tried.

You put your pp2 or cr2 in DS4, and you make File => Save as => Support Asset => Figure/Prop Assets...
Give a name to what you want and you have a board. Give path of your Library, the vendor name (because it looks like it's that which allows to create the "data folder" name; it's very important to check the name each time), the product name (which will inside the vendor name folder), and usual name of item.

Don't forget that datas are a little like Geometries in Poser and must be added.

Post by: CalieVee on November 28, 2017, 06:27:30 PM
In response to questions asked...I have props made in hexagon, and made textures for them.  I got the folder set up Deni gave a long time ago and put the files in the folders.  When I placed them in the runtime, through Daz and tried to save them, they won't save properly. I know I am doing something wrong.  I have the Poser plugins someone made a long time ago for textures and I think props, but when I use them now they don't work right..oh and I have Daz 8, never upgraded after 8.

What I have is the obj's for the props and the jpegs for textures.
Title: Re: Christmas Gift Page (reminder)
Post by: CathyY on November 28, 2017, 09:22:25 PM
Hi Calie,

I don't have poser, so I can't help there.  But I have DAZ 4.10.  I didn't start making models until I was using 4.9, so I don't know if there's any difference in saving between them and 4.8.  If you want, I can give you instructions on how to do it and, hopefully, it hasn't changed.

Post by: Aelin on November 29, 2017, 07:16:52 AM
Hexagon, I don't use anymore (because like a 32bit i crash too much on a 64bit computer). But by the past I had an issue, and I don't remember if I found the base of problem: Hexagon or something else.
My props could work in Daz (DS3 and more), and be saved inside. But when I have tried them for the first time in Poser, I had only a little part on the render (but I was able to see props on the screen during preparation of the scene).
The reason was an "invert normal" concerning faces. When? Where?  :shrug:
I was forced to resave objects by UVMap, and to check "invert normal".

I gave up on Hexagon A few years ago. There are reviews for it claiming it is the most user friendly modeling app available. REALLY?


From my own experience, I can say that just is NOT the case by a very long shot! Blender and Wings3D are far more user friendly. Even Bryce is easier to use, even though it does modeling in a totally different way.


So Hexagon now collects dust in my DAZ Product Library. Not going to download it ever again.
Title: Re: Christmas Gift Page (reminder)
Post by: Aelin on November 29, 2017, 09:30:13 AM
Concerning Hexagon, maybe things will change Agent. Daz offers it free from few days.

But to like or not to like Hexagon is not the point here.
Calivee needs help to see if finally her stuff will work or not with Poser and Daz.

For DS4 I made too few props inside to know the answer to the issue alas. I don't know more than what I said ealier in topic :thud:

In Poser, when you save normally if you want a pp2, it's done easily by program.
Plugin... that remember me some plugin don't work in Poser 11 now.

Post by: Agent0013 on November 29, 2017, 04:58:29 PM
My apologies for the rant. I do know about the new offer, however I think it is the same one that has been up for several years now, not an upgraded version.


As for the help Calie is needing, if I had my own computer working, I'd surely be willing to see what i could do for her. She has been a great friend for at least 7 years now. She has always been able to find things I could not find rather quickly. And there's a lot more I love about her.

I Finally figured out what i could do for this holly day freebie sure took me a while
to figure out something that might fit ! but now that I started the gift allot of other
Ideas came in mind . after all I guess I got stuck a little on the Halloween stuff
and thought that something in that direction sure would not be very creative ...


So if all turns out the way I plan I should be able to get this surprise finished in short time,
and with some luck I might be able to do some more , Ok not a big one like I'm working at
right now but some little ones just for fun
