    Is anybody using sculptris? There’s no way I can afford zbrush and was suggested that as an alternative. Thought?

    • Colle O'Grbage 4 days, 21 hours ago

      yes. learn with sculptris, it is indeed a zbrush lite
      transition to zbrush when ready, get a cracked version if you’ll continue working as a hobbyist, or pay for it once you can afford it from commissions that you earn with sculptris

    Just wondering how Daz users are coping with the excessive long render time in Iray, I see around the forums that 4-6 hours is the norm. The reason why I am still with Poser on my ancient machine (it was state of the art then, really it was) I need a few more pass before I satisfied with the result. Just thinking about that, even with coffee and…[Read more]

      Spose if ya wanna do 4k and leave settings on default then yeah…4-6 hours is probably right, however, tinker with render settings and stick with 1k then ya talking 4-6 minutes with GTX 1060

        If you have the opportunity to purchase a GTX 1060, Iray is not needed. Buy module render Octane and enjoy the beautiful work.

          Have you already purchased Octane. Recent research says their early version 1.1 was a freebie for students, but that program is now abandoned as they market ver 3.x. Would like to find and try that early 1.1 version, if anyone knows how to obtain it.

        Thanks for the info guys. Ok that’s looking better as I don’t think I’ll ever be doing 4K. I am considering the GTX 1060 and just hoping the card won’t have any driver issues with the newer AMD Ryzen 1700 chip. I won’t be upgrading soon and happy to wait. Problem with waiting is, something better always appears on the horizon. Didn’t know much…[Read more]

    Have you guys tried it? They have tons of assets. It would be interesting to see if they can be imported and rendered properly in Iray or Reality. I’m going to experiment with a character and an object and see if I can get it to work somehow. I’m confident that if the character/object is properly converted in Blender then it likely can be…[Read more]

    I heard it was possible to make hair in Blender.

    I don’t know if you guys ever visit affect3d. But they have a list of the programs they need help with. I noticed Ornatrix on the list for hair.

    If I made the hair in Maya can I bring it into Daz?

    Also I have Marvelous Designer for clothes. And Fusion 360 for hard surface material objects. Would…[Read more]

    Does anyone know of a good video tutorial on editing morphs in Zbrush?

    I’ve tried a few times but Daz doesn’t like my edits. I think I’m accidentally increasing the polycount with my sculpting. Also it seems to me like even if it worked the UV probably wouldn’t match up.

    Is there a way to edit the mesh and then make new skins for the character?…[Read more]

    Does anyone else using Daz as their primary program find that it gets corrupted every couple months? I’ve been using it for about 6 mos and am doing a fresh install as for some reason I cannot find the geometry of any objs. Its frustrating…is this a necessary evil of 3D art?

    • Stiles Girl 2 weeks, 5 days ago

      DAZ 4.9 is my primary for years now. I’ve never touched Poser in my life. Its never corrupted on me.

      • genericoffset 2 weeks, 5 days ago

        i guess at least i’m reliable in my corrupting abilities. I was adding a bunch of stuff today and probably screwed something up.

      Vicky is looking a little boxy. I’ll have to dig into this a little more later.

    • Golden Lotus 2 weeks, 4 days ago

      I only messed it up really bad once. It was because I was installing assets incorrectly and I accidentally clicked some setting that messed up the way the items are presented. It was hard to fix because it was hard to describe the problem in a way that would be easy to google or look up on youtube. Completely uninstalling the program didn’t work.…[Read more]

      Hello. First you determine the choice of 3D program. It all depends on what you put before itself tasks. Whether you want to create their own characters, modeling techniques, planning and interiors. Or to Express their creativity, others on the finished models.
