    I have just released "Office Lady" for Dawn, and to those who haven't followed it's development at the 3D Content Development thread, it comes with 2 skirt options: short and longer.

    The longer one was a challenge to rig for the usual reasons, so I've added 4 body handles that can help even with the most challenging poses, such as this one from Dawn's "Everyday Poses".

    As seen above, a useful HINT to add an easy PANTYHOSE is by just darkening the legs color! ^___^

    Enjoy, and don't forget to take advantage of the new body handles on the longer skirt to help with posing or adding flow. ^^

    Ken: I supported you as an early clothes maker for Pauline. I used Wardrobe Wizard to convert Office lady to Dawn, but WW choked on a missing vert in the shoes (and usually does badly anyway), and the fitting room does a so-so job. Would you consider releasing just the Dawn and Pauline shoes as freebies for those of us who want to use the outfit on both? Cheers.

    Hi Rob, thank you for the support! Shoes (and gloves) are indeed an issue for conversions. I can't give the shoes away for free because people have already paid for them as part of the product. But there is a way to convert shoes with the Fitting Room that works fairly well, and I have used it many times. Instead of letting it adjust the shape on its own, and mess it up in the way, just use the shoes' translation, rotation and scale dials to move them into position and size to fit the figure, and then use the Fitting Room to just "Create Figure", with "Auto Group" disabled. You may still have to adjust the joints, but when it comes to shape, it provides the best conversion possible. ^____^

    You're very welcome! Also remember the Dawn version ships with 2 skirts, where the long one has 4 body handles to help with difficult poses. ^^

    Hi Ken, I purchased Office Lady and didn't realise until afterwards it is only Poser. Are you planning on doing a DS version?

    thanks

    Hi Pen! That's a very good question. I am still divided on keeping DS support because since 2013, its sales have remained rather stale in my whole store. This is what I wanted to know when I got started at HW3D, but had no data on this at the time. Now almost 3 years have passed and DS sales show no signs of picking up, so I am not so motivated to support it. It has been a big challenge for me to delve into DS, but the extra effort doesn't seem to pay off. Maybe most DS users prefer to "stay home", where everything is catered specifically for them? I don't really know, but it does make sense that Poser users have more demand for native contents after DAZ has departed from their market. Maybe this will change over time, considering the outstanding craftsmanship of the HW3D figures. I see more people noticing that nowadays, especially after the RDNA buyout. We can be hopeful for the future. ^^

    Cool...I'll most likely use it with DynCreator now that I've bought it. My bad that I didn't look closer.

    One of my beta-testers has reported she tried it on DS 4.9 and everything worked good enough to pass the testing. She said only the vest materials needed minor editing. I was a bit surprised, since DS was not included in the testing, but I am still using DS 4.8, so I don't know if something has changed. What version do you have?

    That's the same version the tester has used, and she claims it works well. Have you tried importing the runtime into your "Poser Formats" section in the library management?

    I haven't tried it at all yet. I bought the new Flip Mode Environment at the same time and I'm still waiting for that to finish rendering.
