She was once a solider in Satan's army….
A most powerful demon, whom even her own brethren feared.
A century of blood and fire were her legacy, and many an innocent perished by her blades.
Til one fateful day, when she did battle with a different kind of foe;
One who could wield the power of Ancient Gods to do her bidding.
This sorceress cursed her, by giving her a soul and a conscience.
The once wicked Azraella finds herself agonized by her own evil deeds.
Leaving Hell behind, she now ascends to Earth,
to pay penance for all the souls she once tortured…
And she will become man's greatest champion
Conforming Clothing, Armor and Accessories
MATS And Poses For Figures
V4 Poses Included
..:: USING THE CONTENTS ::..
As this set uses V4.2, Morphs ++, Aiko 4 and Elite, you will need to own those morph packs to use this set to its full potential. To load Azraella's respective morphs, you must first load V4 into your scene. Make sure V4 is selected, then browse to your Pose Library, then into “Azraella” and into the “Character & Poses” folder, and there you will see all the character options. Morph options are listed first, and these will load all morphs. There's a human style morph, as well as demonic style morph. Keep in mind, the head morphs contain customized morphs. The deltas are included in the pack - do not delete them, as the morphs cannot work without them. The apply all skin option, loads all default mats (and this you will want to load first, before applying any of the other mats) You will see two full skin options – a human version as well as demonic scarred version. From there, you may choose the eyes you wish to use, as well as makeup options. The makeups are half human, and half are scarred. You must load the correct makeups to match which skin you chose. Also note, the Hellfire eyes will glow in the dark.
There is not only a full outfit and armor included in this set, but also 4 other conformers that turn her into a Demon. To locate these figures, you need to go to your figure library and find the Azraella folder. Here you will see two folders – Fervidus Mortem, which includes the outfit and armor, and Creature Features, which has all the creature type conformers. To conform each one, load the item, go to the top of poser under the drop down menus and click on Figure. A new menu will open which will say conform, click that and then conform to and a new dialog will open with its own dropdown. Select Victoria 4 and hit ok, and the item will load onto V4. You will need to do this for all the figures (or alternatively in DS, right click on the item and click “fit to” then select V4 in the list) You will also notice there are 2 versions of each outfit piece - normal ones that you will have to dial in manually, and Super conforming versions that will automatically match whatever morphs you have dialed into V4. Keep in mind, to avoid pokethru, it is best to use the Magnetize clothing to V4 poses, which are included with V4 when you purchase her. The clothing has a myriad of standard DAZ morphs and adjustment morphs, so you can fit it to your own characters. Each item also has a special Azraella morph, so that it will fit to the character thats included perfectly (keep in mind, it is best to use this morph on the non-superconforming versions of the clothing, as it will not work properly with crosstalk)
Also, Ive tossed in a metric ton of mats to change up the clothing and creature features to fit your scene. You will also notice that the loin cloth includes and OFF mats – these turn the skirt cloths invisible, should you wish to turn any pieces off. There is also an OFF & ON Mat poses for the bodyhandles, to turn them off and on in DS (in Poser, the handles will automatically not show in a render) You will also find in the creature features folder, mats to turn off the membrane on the wings (in case you wish only the bones to show) as well as a utility pose that will turn off V4's feet (this last is for use with the hooves that are included)
To locate the props, go to your props folder and find the Azraella Folder. You will see a myriad of props here (full list is listed above in the contents section) To load each, simply double click the icons. Some of these props contain morphs to change their shape. Of them, are the skull, flaming skull and the Hellfire prop. The horns prop (which also morphs, to help when using with hair) also has 10 mats included to change up the colors – these are located in Pose:Azraella:Creature Features. In order to use these mats, since the horns are a prop, they must be loaded onto V4 first. Then you must select her head, then the horns, then apply the mat.
There are also 15 poses included in this set, some of which were designed for use with the Soul Reaver blades, or flight poses for the wings. You can tell by the thumbnail which ones are intended for the wings or blades. To locate the poses for V4, you will need to go to your pose library, into the Azraella folder, and into “Character and Poses” Aside from V4 Poses, I have also included 10 Poses for the Wings. These are located in the same Azraella folder, but in the Creature Features folder.
The 10 lights included (in your Light Library/Azraella) are designed to set off the shaders in the character mats. There is a mix of colored lights here, which are done in classic comic colors, to emphasize that she is a comic book hero.
For a full instruction guide, Ive written a tutorial that's included with the set when you purchase it. This will explain everything in deep detail, and walk you through getting the best out of this set.
DS Optimized mats and Lights are included
A complete PDF Tutorial is included in the set. This will install to the following folders: Poser/Damage Inc/Azraella Tutorial. It elaborates on instructions, and there are added tidbits you can read at your convenience.
Color coded and labeled templates for all figures and props are available, so you can make your own textures.
Conforming items have blank channels, so you can make your own custom morphs and inject them simplistically.
The thumbnails for the pose and light files are the standard 91×91 resolution, so that they will show properly in DAZ Studio. If you are a poser 5 or higher user and prefer the larger thumbnails (which are 125×125 in size), you can download them here: Azraella Thumbs
Bigger thumbnails will NOT work in DAZ Studio, nor lower versions of Poser, so only download these if your using Poser 5 and higher.
Instructions to install larger thumbnails:
These are set up to the same exact locations as the original sets thumbnails. To install, simply unzip it to your Poser Runtime, and overwrite the old thumbnails.
As covered in the instruction section, when using the conforming clothing in Poser, you may need to use the Magnetize clothing to V4 poses (which come with V4) so that absolutely no poke thru will occur.
The membrane eye mat will not work with the eye reflections. For this reason, shaders have been added to make it glossy, like an eye would be.
