“Don’t Mess With The Blonde!”
DAZ Studio now has dynamic clothing! Yeah!
Yes, I am excited.
I like dynamic clothing because dynamic clothing is so much easier for me to handle. And always, in my case, the dynamic clothing actually looks great without expending so much time!
DAZ Studio now comes with a built in basic dynamic clothing control that allows you to drape DAZ’s dynamic clothing to figures. If you require more than the built-in control offers then you can purchase, separately, a dynamic clothing control plug-in with many more features, like wind simulation, that is not offered in the basic built-in controls.
DAZ 3D’s dynamic clothing is different from Poser’s dynamic clothing, so don’t think you can use your Poser dynamic clothing in DAZ Studio. OptiTex is the company behind the technology DAZ 3D decided to use for their dynamic clothing offering. So it’s totally a different technology.
I added a Michael 3 figure, as the bad guy, with some conforming clothes. You will noticed how smooth and natural the dynamic clothing is draped around the Victoria V4.2 figure. On the other hand, the conforming cloth I selected for the Michael V3 figure is one that is always a bit difficult to work with. The areas you should look at are the shirt around the waste, I had to expand it a little to avoid the pants poking through, and it doesn’t look good at all. The other area is the bottom of the pants, trying to get long conforming pants to work on foots that bend a certain way is always a problem. I can probably fix these, to a certain extent, but the time to get it right is considerable, which is why the idea of dynamic clothing always appeals to me.
Dynamic clothing too can be a bit difficult depending on the pose, but it has never taken me as long to get right as it has with certain morphing clothes (I take this back, it can be tedious as well depending on what you are trying to accomplish).
