    The fitting room result is not commercial quality, but end users quality.

    It depends on what kind of end user you are talking about. Poser users encompass far more than those who use it for a hobby.

    If you are talking people who just want to create pretty pictures as a hobby, yeah. The Fitting Room will meet their needs.
    But if you are talking people that use content in a more professional area, like cover art, or comics, or motion picture, or television, they will have higher standards.



  • @Deecey No, it won't even fit their needs. THIS is what he suggests is user quality.

    Find me a user who will bother rendering this dress as it came out of the fitting room.

  • @Glitterati3D

    The only thing the fitting room lacks, really, is a bone tool. If you add the bone tool, and the ability to add additional bones in the fitting room, I don't think you'd need the setup room at all.


  • Poser Ambassadors

    @Glitterati3D
    Yes, one gets that result with obj files that are not fitting room compatible.(or if one selects not enough bones to get a proper end point)
    @Deecey
    I am going the other way round.
    Less vertex groups, and careful selection of bones up to and including a proper end point. Works each and every time.

    But again; One NEEDS a fitting room compatible obj file. (and select the proper bones including proper end points) (or you get the result shown above) Don't know what Tracy did, but my figures/clothings don't have these mishaps.

    One of the upcoming video's will be about creating clothes and the proper use of the fitting room.
    And my test showed that one needs remarkably few vertex groups, and I don't have a need for extra bones either..

    @karina No, I stopped looking at the original promos which belied your indigence.

    Allrighty mate - you win!
    Now let's ->both of us!<- please stop derailing this thread!
    Just put me on your ignore list.

  • @Deecey I rig without the Setup room all the time, but I also rig my dresses to the floor with weight maps. It's all in the grouping, which I do not allow the Fitting Room to do because that, most of all, is it's worst routine.

    My rigged dresses follow the pose, including long gowns, and can still be use as hybrid clothing in the cloth room.

    I group manually as well. That way I have a clean and welded OBJ to refer to in the CR2.

    PS - lovely dress



  • @Deecey Thanks! Send me a note if you want to know how to weight map to the feet. It's easy, actually.


  • Poser Ambassadors

    Just did a small test : Unrendered preview screengrab. => Preview quality !
    And , LOL, Yes that street- dome is my default textured Poser11dome.

    0_1530055547203_Unrendered.jpg

    Each arm is a single Vertex Group but has the 3 bones including the hand as end bone.
    (Why create all the vertex groups (and let Poser unweld them) if you don't need them.)

    The hip/thigh are a single vertex group "hip".

    With proper weight/bulge map painting using the Joint editor.
    Something you always have to do when coming out of the fitting room.

    Why?

    The fitting room "transfers - projects" the weight into the clothing but there is no interpolation going on.
    Translation :
    Only works properly if the donor figure and the clothing have more or less the same polygon density.

    Chase a high poly clothing over a lower poly figure and you have to repaint weight/bulge map.
    Chase a low poly clothing over a high poly figure and you have to repaint weight/bulge map.



  • @vilters Hands that don't pose, boots replacing feet. Why, it's a blow up doll! In a dress with horrid texture stretching at the shoulders!

    A street walking blow up doll, on a ridiculously low poly textured background.

    Everything that's ever been wrong with Poser in one simple image.


  • Poser Ambassadors

    Grrrr that editing time. LOL

    For the sleeves there was no weight/bulge map repainting required.
    Even being single vertex groups, they follow the figure shoulder and forearms bends automatically if you have included the hands as end bones.


  • Poser Ambassadors

    @Glitterati3D

    Again, unrendered because it is way beyond bed time here.

    Euh what where you saying about the unposable hands?



  • @vilters

    Is that a working texture or a final one?

    Ya'd need some mighty big yarn and knitting needles for that sweater dress :-P


  • Poser Ambassadors

    @Deecey
    Just some quick demo I simply swapped together in 5 minutes including the fitting room pass and leg repaint.
    I did not even spend a minute rendering to respond to these attacks. => Just preview quality will have to do.
    The texture was to simply have "something" on the dress.



  • @vilters

    That's what I figured. LOL


  • Poser Ambassadors

    @Glitterati3D
    oh, and Trace?

    You did not even read everything.
    What you see is a "unrendered preview screengrab" . => The ground texture is 8.192x8.192 .



  • @vilters LOL, even worse.....awful. Just awful.


  • Poser Ambassadors

    @Glitterati3D I never use the fitting room for rigging. I rig old fashion in the set up room . Also never auto group.
    Can not stand worst rigged outfits from which I have a few .And payed hard earned money for them even :(

    I'm not criticizing this gown, just using it as a topic example because it was a quick screen grab.

    But something that I think Poser vendors could and should start doing is to make cloth LOOK more realistic. By that I mean Poser cloth tends to look flat and one dimensional, or extra thick. I think bump and displacement maps help, but real Cloth is weaved, and as a result actually has holes in it that light can pass through. You could put a spot light right next to that gown and no light will get through.

    But look at cloth with the sun behind it.

    It's more translucent, like skin.

    @eclark1849 This dress what she show is heavy Brocade and not a summer dress.
