These pages are where I share my tips, tricks
with Poser 2014 & Photoshop!
BELOW~! Texture transformer and render settings.
This first page grew into more and more "wip" tips and tricks pages~
Sorry for the fact that both Poser and Photoshop tips are mixed together...
I just add tips/tricks as I learn to create them in my own work flow using these programs.

HOW TO CREATE A POSTAGE STAMP EDGES IN PHOTOSHOP
A new way to "paint" hair on a 3D figure, using Eye Candy 4K filter: "swirl"!
The Reason for Post Work
Just like special effects in film...you should not notice it...
Post work/painting should just make your art look better! :)
Creating a "light bulb" in Poser! Turn on area lighting, light from a lamp, etc. with
Ambient Light from a simple ball prop!
Using EZSkin2 to get even
more shine and SSS without causing the skin to become too light!
My own EZSkin2 settings for Dawn skins.
UPDATE and IMPORTANT NOTE! With careful tests, I lowered the Pixel Samples to 11-14, which is still
a very high rez setting, but turns out 20 is overkill. I also feel that this set of Render Settings is ONLY
necessary for close up people faces/portraits! This and "ticking" the IDL (Indirect Light) can slow render
times down a LOT. A "high end" (ie: plenty of ram!) machine is required!
Interesting Note! I went back and
re-rendered AM Daetix (below) with the new settings, and aside
from IDL being a nice added detail, this texture is so FINE, there was no difference in brows, etc!
A Nice way to transfer SSS to a Texture
Takes more work, but I love the results!
This texture by Mona (Amaranthine) can be found here at YURdigital!
I will be using TT to transfer all the make up colors and settings to Dawn! :)
Manual map transfer Experiment
Just to see if I could! I made copies of the eyes/brows, and the lower nose/mouth...pasted
Then I used the warp tool to forced those layers to the shape of Dusk's features,
blended nose holes, cloned and erased edges of area layered parts...
Dusk's ears are ATTACHED to the face map, so I had to bring the M4 Jack ears over.
As I said, there are NO morphs dialed in, on Dusk's face...this was just a test to see if it's
worth continuing with. Until there is a real TT version for M4-Dusk, I think I can do this for
my own personal use. :)
