Hi Zev, i have a question for you.
You're going to create "Toe control" for Gen2 or/and Gen3 ? I hope so because i have really appreciate this morph for gen1, and i think then these are necessary for the next generations also.
Thanks a lot...an bye !

Hi Zev0!

I just have a simple question for you and if you have time to answer it I would appreciate it.

I recently bought a lot of your products at DAZ and find them really helpful. I only use DAZ as a base for CA and fine adjusting characters before I export them to my main 3D soft for texturing, light-, camera setup and rendering. 

Even if the "Glute and Breast Movement for Genesis" is a really great timesaver it seems like I have missed something crucial. Maybe the problem is my lack of skills in DAZ but it seems the keyframes set in the "Glute and Breast Movement for Genesis" cannot be seen in any keyframe editor. The big advantage in "Glute and Breast Movement for Genesis" must be to help characters act more natural than animate2 and aniblocks do in general. Therefore my question for you is the following.

I have designed an old female zombie with a real disgusting skin and a breast part. The breasts are planned to follow her movements with great help from your 
"Glute and Breast Movement for Genesis." Here everything works fine but... when I try to find a way to change or fine adjust the keyframes I cannot find a panel for this. Do you possibly know where in DAZ or the "Glute and Breast Movement for Genesis" I can find an editor that makes it possible to correct the keyframes set in your program?

Hi launok. Sorry for the late reply. I hardly visit my Deviant art page lol. You can use any tablet, as long as the pen can make use of pressure I am sure it will be ok. Pressure sensitive pens is a must for precision work.

Hi there, since I can't afford the Wacom tablet you use, do you think the Kanvus Office53 Graphics Tablet I bought 2 years ago, will also do the trick? It's also a drawing tablet with pen. 

It works with any paint editor programs such as Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.  I have used it for instance for painting via ArtRage.  I have noticed this tablet of mine is now off market in South Africa on doing a search.  I bought this to take my pencil drawings a step further - more digitally. But if I can use it for morph making + it will be really great! :) (Smile)  It was about R600 that time and somehow affordable but the Wacom's a bit pricey now since I don't work anymore.  No, I disagree!

Zev0, thank you for your answer and tips. :) (Smile)  I will start playing with ZBrush as I have seen also wonderful results from others who are using the program.  Genesis 1 & 2 related are the characters I want to concentrate on rather than the older generation figures.  I will have to look at the videos. Just a pity that some of them have no voice audio or only music and then it's a bit hectic to learn from that, but many are well explained.

But to be honest, I have never modeled anything except a shop cabinet in Bryce 7 (believe it or not, since this is no modeling program No, I disagree! ) or have tried working with any figures and 'meshes' (a word I have figured out only via forums recently Sweating a little... ) in any way, but the videos can be a great help. If you have learned that way, then any one should!  And you have done a great job! :) (Smile)  Up to now I have only made a few personal renders using free models and 2D scrapbook stuff as freebies for others.  Buildings is my next aim as I can't find the exact free town models I am looking for to use in my renders ... so, I have to learn to make my own!  Have already downloaded some SketchUp videos for this purpose.

Yes, I have noticed that 3DU is also from South Africa when I have visited their web site the first time ... .co.za says it all! :) (Smile)
Best wishes for a Happy New Year! :) (Smile)

Hi Launok. You're welcome and thanks for the kind words:) For me, the ultimate app in morph creation is Zbrush. Combine that with a Wacom tablet for precision, and the sky is the limit:) If it is morphs you want to create, I recommend Zbrush. There are quite a few tutorials and demo's on youtube that explain and show how they are done. That is how I learned. Also on the zbrush site there are quite a few handy tutorials to get you started. My best advice is study the mesh you want to work on, get to know it, where it's strong and weak points are, from there you will know how to approach whatever it is you want to create:) Have fun:) And there are a few South Africans in our market. 3D Universe is one of them:)

Dear Zev0,

Firstly, thank you for the great Xmas Gift this year (2013) of the Belly Control for G2M.  At least I got one of your awesome products for free!  :) (Smile)  I would love to get the rest of them too but as pensioner not quite possible.  With my financial status currently the only way I can get along creating art is by learning from the very basics up.  I do art only as hobby. 

If I want to learn to make morphs which program(s) will be the best to learn such? Any suggestions? I have DS4.6, Bryce, ZBrush (used only by little experimenting time), Blender (never used). SickleYield suggested last mentioned when she described how she has done the Ball Joint Doll for G2F but I believe complicated program. 

I have taught myself 3D from scratch with little experience as I am also doing 2D but want to master 3D as well! I have built a 3D model in Bryce but big mistake, it can't be exported as .obj! I have all the Genesis 1 & 2 essential packages up to latest that's included with DS4.6 but want to learn more. Maybe if I succeed I can give it away as freebies first. But I need advice! Your work is so realistic!! By the way, I see you are also from South Africa ... lovely to see more South Africans in the 3D environment! :) (Smile) Any help will me so much appreciated! 

Happy Christmas! 

Laura
