Enjoyed those, although I found a few of the time lapse vid's were a tad too fast for little old me. That 'put on' facility, I suddenly realise in my prog' is called 'snap on'. Yay, I shall have to try and see if it's the same thing. Cheers.
Sorry I haven't posted anything lately, I've been kinda busy. Last week I also saw the announcement about DAZ giving away their DAZ Studio 4 Pro, and got it right away. I've been playing around a bit and this new "Genesis" toy is Great ! You don't need to buy anything else. You can make your own Clothes/Hair and do your own Morphs and Mats. Here's how .....
Here I'm using Sculptris to help fix a Celeb morph from Facegen. Facegen is a good place to start, but always gets the eyes and mouth too big, plus many shapes, dimples, lines are just not possible with even the extended Daz Morphs ... but with Sculptris It's all possible. First, in the "Perameters" tab under "General" you'll find "Mesh resolution". Set it to Base and 0 Subdivisions. Then you can export and work on your model in Sculptris. To make a morph to import back to Genesis, Zero all changes in the "Shaping tab", so that all you export is the base Genesis with the head morph.
Here's a quick tutorial on setting up a simple "Jarvis" with Speech and Speech Recognition
It's just a simple VB script you can edit in Notepad.
I forgot to mention in the vid ...
1) To save to a "Programs Folder" open Notepad as Administrator. and
2) To remove ugly Pink outline from Daz render, I used Paint.NET - Armegeddon tools - Alpha Works and just turned the alpha contras way up.
Here's the script ..
CreateObject("SAPI.SpVoice").Speak "Write what you want to hear HERE!"
Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
ObjShell.exec("C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\blender.exe")
This works great with RocketDock and Shortcut Items where you can replace the Icon, or try Tazti with
Speech Recognition, it's not that hard to set up.
