[Tutorial] Blender Fluid Simulation for DS(YouTube version still in progress.)[Tutorial] Blender Fluid Simulation for DS by SickleYield
Blender has one of the few free fluid simulators out there, a rare treasure when such an add-on can cost thousands of dollars. This tutorial explores working with it to add fluids to your DAZ Studio scenes.
This is a challenging area, and it is hard on your hardware. Don't get into this unless you've got some time, you're willing to work in Blender, and you have at least an Intel quad core. I have one of these in my work machine, and and it's still time-consuming running fluid sims. AMD made an octo-core a while back. It performs worse than an Intel quad.
You also need a good amount of system RAM, because the obj files that the fluid sim outputs are high-poly; even a small scene can have millions of polygons.
Using Your Content With G3FSo, it looks like it's time for some reminders and updates on the conversion processes and where we stand.Using Your Content With G3F by SickleYield
Right now you just can't use V4, G1 or G2 skins on G3F. I don't know if this will change. Given the new UV and material setup, probably not.
Expressions will not transfer in either direction. G2F's face is animated with morphs, whereas G3F's is animated using a full bone rig; they're just not compatible setting types. You can see G3F's facial bone rig by using the "show hidden nodes" option in the scene tab, but don't do it unless you really need to; there are many, many small bones there.
A couple of people have told me that when using shoes, this method doesn't work for them with G3F. It still works for me. I think the problem is that I wasn't clear enough that you have to select G3F, hold down CTRL, and then click the shoes at one partic
