Usage: Okay for commercial ad personal use.
Info: Eight plushie presets to apply to whatever prop or clothing you’d like to make fuzzy or furry. (I’m planning an add-on of some tiling textures too.)
The presets affect only the diffusion color/strength, specularity color/strength, ambient color/strength, and displacement map/strength. Therefore, you can use the presets on existing diffuse color maps and any associated bump or transparency maps.
If there is a bump map, you may need to lower the settings.
With light colors, the ambient value will probably need to be lowered to 10, or even 5. You might also wish to change both the specularity strength values to 75.
Because displacement alters the mesh, there will be “fur” poke through on parts of the mesh over or close around it, like stuffed animal eyes or belts or buttons. Sometimes, these items can be moved using the Z-Translation dial or otherwise adjusted with XYZ scaling. Other times, the only way to fix the poke through is the cloning brush in your postwork program of choice.
Using displacement will increase render times a bit.
The shortest presets work best at close up; too far away and the effect won’t be noticed.
The presets work pretty well on most clothing, shoes, and various props like pillows, furniture, plushie animals, etc., but no guarantees it’ll work perfectly on every one. The effects aren’t as nice as what you can get with more advanced DS4 plugins or Poser’s material room, but it’s a workable alternative.
You can mix presets. For example, using a medium fur preset on a teddy bear body and a shorter fur preset on its ears or footpads.
Please note: The displacement effect will not show up until you render. Thanks to Laura for the reminder about this.
