Bring out the savage side of Genesis!
This conforming set of vicious retractable hooked claws give Genesis that savage touch! Hide the Genesis fingernails and add sharp fangs, a feral muzzle, and pointed ears to make the monster you've always wanted!
The latest version of the installer files available as of August 02, 2011, is 1.2; this is an update to fix a problem with the MetaData installer. The set works without the MetaData, but will not show up in your “My Stuff” area. If you don't use “My Stuff”, you don't need to reset for the 1.2 update.
Install Monster Details for Genesis into the same location DAZ Studio 4 installed the bundled Content. By default this should be “your personal Documents folder”/DAZ 3D/Studio4/Library/
In your Content Library, under People → Genesis → Props you will find the Monster Details folder, with claws, materials presets, and UV-Nail presets for Genesis.
In your Content Library, under People → Genesis → Poses you will find the Monster Details folder, with your figure poses for Genesis.
On the claws are on the root node of the claws (double click on the claws) under Parameters Tab :
On Genesis, root node (double click on Genesis) under Parameters tab :
The claws are designed at a resolution level useful for a “full body” action scene. For close up renders, like the ones for the product promotional pictures, use SubD to make a high resolution version. The claws have been specifically designed to work with SubD for lightweight scene impact but maximum versitility.
To add subD to your claws:
Studio will pop up an ARE YOU SURE message. You're sure ;)
SubD will automatically load in with one level of sub-division - this is a good level for mid range renders - upper body portraits with the claws prominent in your scene but not right in the camera. You can turn SubD up to two levels of sub-division - this is a good level for extreme close ups. I used two levels of subdivision for the main product image and all the material thumbnails :)
