go into the parameter tabs and see if changing the subD resolution helps.

I'm not sure what you mean by blurring but the edges look terrific. Sorry home sick so my brain is still in neutral...
Are you using a map for the displacement? And if so can you post an image of it?

It wouldn't let me change the SubD, said it was already done. I'll have to shrink it, because it's 12MB. I made my own Displacement map.

As for the blur, I selected a tiny edge of the displacement map for the sleeves and collar, and then applied Gaussian blur, I'm playing with darkening it, rather than just blur, so that it still has a bit of texture, without getting crazy. lol

This is what I did. If there is a better way? Let me know. Get well, soon. Rest, Fluids.

Will do...

I would put a plain mid grey there as that is the equivalent of zero in DS. I would also suggest if you want finer displacement you might want a slightly finer noise type effect but I'm not an expert on creating the displacement maps.

I couldn't get the noise any finer than this, will have to experiment to figure that out. I didn't really like the look of plain gray (I did try it), it looked too different from the rest of the material. This way it still has some thickness. Thank you so much for helping me to figure it out to here!

Aw, Pen, thank you! You helped tons! I took your suggestions to the DAZ Addicts grp on Facebook, and asked them how to do it. Got someone to go over the stuff and make suggestions. I went through and did them, checking back here to compare with what you said, and viola! They are looking really good. With the right lighting and posing, they are very cute. And they are adjustable from Microfiber, to fleece, to shag! So, don't feel bad, just because you are feeling sick! Just keep being awesome, helpful, you!

How do I go about finding someone who can convert these to Poser? I have the 4 sets completed and almost packaged for Beta testing, which I need someone for, as well. Do I advertise in the Testers wanted area?

Good question I'm not sure...still working that process out myself. If it's just textures you could use Poser File Exporter (script) to set up basic poses or you could set up the materials in the material room yourself.

Lol, I only have Poser 5, And I don't have a clue how to do more that start the program! lol. So, I'll have to find someone else or a program that converts from DAZ to Poser automatically! Wouldn't that be awesome!

Thanks for the answer!

Dax, I have holidays in two weeks and I have poser so I can check the basics for you if you don't get someone with more experience before that...

Thank you! That would be awesome. I hate just having it sit there. And I was even thinking about sending it on to Quality Control as is, but I really still want to support the Poser people when I can.
