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

Thursday, 15th November 2018

I SHIPPED MINE A COUPLE DAYS AGO AND THIS IS WHAT I SEE!!! I have never seen this before. I can tell you that the USPS employee was RUDE and frigging obnoxious to the core. It makes be wonder if he just THREW IT AWAY IN THE GARBAGE...IS THAT POSSIBLE??? Information Available Soon USPS doesn't yet have a status update on this item shipped from the Post Office. Information is usually updated within the hour of your visit. Please check back soon.

Did you receive your package? I am getting the same message from USPS. This mail is super duper important to me.

Thank you for posting this. Ran across this problem this morning. You saved me quite a bit of aggravation.

Hi - I have the same situation - did you receive your parcel at all and when ?

Much appreciated, Allan! And, to say it with a large British supermarket chain's advertising slogan, "Every Little Helps" ;-)

That's fantastic news - thank you so much 😍 Sadly Patreon can only accept monthly donations at the moment... but how about this: if you give men $1 per month, that's $12 a year. And contrary to what it says, I'll even give you a credit in forthcoming YouTube videos. How exciting would that be? There are other exciting things hiding in there too, like a free copy of my latest book. And of course you can cancel anytime you like. Let me know if this works for you.

How to create DAZ Character Morphs with Blender

After all the extensive help I've received from your video posts I'd be happy to drop 10 dollars in your jar...without anything ever even happening on the B3D software...it's not that important to me after much time and making the mistake of buying it from Renderosity...I had merely thought you might have tried it, too... Where is that elusive "tip jar" on your Patreon site..? I see only a recurring plan option...in retirement I wouldn't be able to make a recurring payment, unfortunately... I'll gladly send 10 dollars in...Your videos and postings have been invaluable to me...Is the Tip Jar obvious and I'm just missing it..?

Hi Allan, yes that's a possibility for sure! There's a new version of ZBrush out that I haven't had a chance to look at yet, so it'll be nice to dig into it. I remember that DAZ had a video on their channel that showed this, but I've just had a look and it appears they've taken it down... I'll put it on my to-do list :-)

Hi Allan, I had a look at their website, and quite honestly I'm not getting a good vibe... they do have a monthly subscription option though. What I can offer you is this: if you head over to my Patreon page and drop $10 into my tip jar, I could sign up and explore The Blacksmith for a month. If I figure out how to bring morphs into DAZ Studio, I'll let you know via screencast. I can't make any promises if I'll be able to figure it out (I may need more than one month). This may work for both of us.

Jay, another request, if you would entertain the idea... Could you clear some of the mists surrounding the Daz3d-Zbrush GoZ process with a possible tutorial..? I find it confusing and know that you likely have it down pat... Thanks, Jay...

How to create DAZ Character Morphs with Blender

Thursday, 20th September 2018

Thanks, Jay... I, along with many others (reportedly), took advantage of a sale offer on Renderosity to buy Blacksmith 3d as a way to modify and morph figures from Daz or Poser...it's also a full painting program...across seams, too... I bought it for both reasons...to paint on a figure...and also to morph it... But I have never really been able to come to terms with it...despite B3D's tutorial assertions of how easy and versatile it is... Importing obj's and exporting back into Daz or Poser results in various error messages...usually vertex order...despite exporting at base resolutions and trying all sorts of things to resolve the problems... It really is a bit of a mind-burner...and it wasn't cheap, either...even at the sale price... Online tutorials don't help much and I've watched a few...many are very dated... You have a "way" of simplifying things without a "rush approach" and an annoying "meteor-like" cursor in the tute... I thought you might have the program...so, I guess I'm still in the same boat... Thanks anyway, Jay... And thanks for being a super survivor...

Hi Allan! I'd love to - but sadly I currently don't have a copy of Blacksmith3D. I've looked at it once or twice, but I'm still confused as to what it does and where it might fit into my pipeline. Can you sum it up for me? If I like it, I may look into it.

How to use the View Selected shortcut in Blender on a Mac

Wednesday, 19th September 2018

Good call, mapping this shortcut to the Wacom tablet. That'll make sculpting a breeze - I'll have to try this :-)

Is there any possibility that you could simplify, in your own inimitable way, the process of exporting a character from DAZ3d into Blacksmith 3d and then, after changes, to reimport to Daz..?

Thanks for the advice! I have a keyboard like that, but I also have a Wacom tablet. Really annoying having to reach over to the numpad. I want all hotkeys to be close to my left, then keep my right hand for the Wacom tablet.

Nice tut but there is an easier way. Once you have the Load Selection box open you will see below are 4 options. Just click add to selection and you can repeat this to add as many selections as you want :)

Hi Paul, sadly I don't know - I haven't got hardware that can run the latest version of Procreate. These brushes worked fine until and including Procreate 3, as well as Procreate Pocket.

Thank you so much! I’ve downloaded the brushes, but they don’t seem to work when I choose them in Procreate. Any thoughts on why they won’t draw?

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

Friday, 13th July 2018

Hi Bob, that is a long time to wait for your package indeed. I'm no expert, but in all likelihood, packages are never really lost during transport. They may be delayed and spend a bit of time in a van or a warehouse, but ultimately they're either delivered to you, or returned back to the sender. All I can suggest is that you wait and keep an eye on the tracking information. I remember back in the UK there was a procedure to escalate things with the post office, if you have reason to believe that your package has been lost. Perhaps there's a similar procedure with the US Post Office too? Good luck, and I hope your package will reach you soon!

My new HP Z600 Workstation

Wednesday, 11th July 2018

Hi xor, I’m still kind of confused as to what you did to bridge the 8 pin and 6 pin on your gpu. I’m planning on getting a EVGA GTX 970 SCC which has a 8 pin and a 6 pin connector so how could I make them work so I don’t have to replace the stock PSU which only has one 6 pin. Any help would be appreciated.
