How to turn a 3D object into conforming clothing in DAZ Studio

Wednesday, 25th April 2018

Had the same problem and think I found a solution. Before you do the transfer, export the object first as a .obj file to "DAZ Studio (1 unit = 1cm)". Then import it again, now it worked for me...

Grouping and Parenting in Blender

Tuesday, 13th March 2018

"If you’ve made a mistake in the selection order, hit A to de-select everything and start again." You don't have to deselect everything; you can just hold shift to deselect anything that shouldn't be a child. To select a new active object to be the parent, just hold shift and right click on it.

"Note that if you miss this opportunity, there doesn’t seem a way to do this later: I haven’t managed to find a way to even display groups in the current scene." To view and rename your group after creation, go to Outliner and choose Groups from the drop down filter that by default says All Scenes. Your groups will show up there and you can rename by double clicking on them.

How to render the current viewport in Blender

Monday, 5th March 2018

I hear you, Jeff! I'm using many of the "hobbyist" 3D apps and none of them work like Blender - especially when it comes to setting up the camera. Great to hear this little post has helped you!

12 Procreate Brushes: Stitches and Sequins

Saturday, 17th February 2018

Thanks, Crispo - that's great to hear. Hey I'm curious, are you on Procreate 4? And do the downloads work on this site? I can't afford a new iPad right now and I'm stuck with Procreate 3. Downloads are working fine there, but I keep getting the odd report from users who seem to have a problem on the latest version of iPads and Procreate. All the best!

How to use Bump Maps in Blender (Cycles)

Saturday, 17th February 2018

Hi Michael, that's not easy to diagnose indeed without seeing the particulars of your shader. I'd probably put a plain colour into the diffuse channel for now and see how the bump effect looks. If it's absolutely smooth, check that the bump strength is set to something adequately high. Play with the height and distance values and see what happens. Good luck!

For me, the bumpmap doesn't render... It's on the material but once I render I only see the material's color on my object, not the Bumpmap texture :( What could be wrong?

12 Procreate Brushes: Stitches and Sequins

Tuesday, 13th February 2018

It works great with Procreate 3 as described, but since I don't have an iPad that can cope with iOS 11 or higher, I have no way of testing it with the latest version of Procreate. You can always scour the Procreate forums and see how you can transfer Procreate 3 brushes to the latest version, or how to load brushes from the web into the latest version of Procreate. If anything needs to be done at my end, please let me know and I'll do it. Good luck!

Thanks for writing this. I'm on Windows, but this was close enough to save me a lot of time. I'm new to DAZ Studio, and it would have taken me forever to figure all that out on my own, so I really appreciate it.

What does “Delivery Status not updated” mean with USPS tracking

Tuesday, 16th January 2018

Thank you! My package was suppose to come today but I noticed that it was shipped to the county over. After checking two hours later for an update, USPS tracking said “status not available”. I’m pretty upset since I’ve been waiting for this package for about 2 weeks.

Hi Brian, great to hear my post was useful to you, and thank you for subscribing! I believe that parenting vs grouping is a purely personal choice, although of course it depends on your needs as much as your individual workflow. For me, I like working with the Outliner, so parenting works well for me - if I want to retain the objects. However, during the modelling stage, I find myself joining objects together so that various primitives are turned into object sub-parts before making it into a larger object. For example, a table leg may be constructed of several cylinders perhaps, or a cube and a cylinder. I'd join those together. But then, the resulting object may become a parented table leg of the table. Thank you for your well wishes in regards to my health! I have great news indeed: immunotherapy has helped me become cancer free! We found this out in October 2017, and I'm overjoyed by the news! I'm officially a Super Survivor, because two chemotherapies have failed in my case and only immunotherapy (Keytruda) has provided the cure I needed. I'm currently writing a book about my story, of which I've not shared much while it was happening. I'm hoping it will help others in my situation not lose hope and keep going, even if the outlook is dire. And I totally agree: I wish we had more tools and tutorials for real world simulations! All the best, JAY
