And periodically, the little beasties like to mess with me.
Today, DS4 can read the Century Nightgown material files and the dynamic cloth plugin works as it should (mostly; still having sporadic trouble with the cuffs on some poses.)
The only thing I did differently this time was not use a sub-d V4 or the old armpit fixes by Corvas. When the dress behaved itself and draped properly, I tried it a second time with a sub-d V4 and the armpit fixes — and again everything draped properly.
I’m pretty sure subdivision has no bearing whatsoever on the dynamic clothing plugin, but it apparently appeased the gremlins…
I should use (and buy) more dynamic clothing. I almost picked up this set today while it was on sale — I like that it’s for both the G2M and G2F — but bought this outfit instead. It’s coat weather in Wisconsin now, not shorts weather. (Even if this isn’t in the least relevant for 3D people.)
Speaking of beasties, I had a couple of does peeking in my office window this morning, to check me out. Startled me, because deer don’t usually come so close to the house. One was quite curious, and stayed by the window for a minute or so before wandering off to chew on the neighbor’s bushes. Pretty animals, in spite of some unauthorized feasting on our butternut squash, cherry tomatoes, and beans.
