Product Notes

  • By: 4blueyes

Thank you for purchasing the 2Cute clothing pack for DAZ Aiko 3.0.
In this pack you will find 2 conforming tops, a conforming skirt, a conforming panty, a dynamic skirt and a dynamic dress with several Poser5+ shader MAT poses.

The conforming clothes have all the FBMs and numerous other morphs as well as the custom Aiko19 fit with necessary fitting morphs.

System Requirements:

  • PC ONLY
  • Poser 5 +, some items and shaders work in Poser4+ or DAZ|Studio.

Needed Files:

  • DAZ Aiko 3.0 or
  • DAZ Aiko Morphs - to use the morphs in the clothes
  • Maps and Aiko 19 at PoserPros - to use the custom A19 fit

Installation Instructions:

All files can be self extracted, just extract to your Poser folder and the Runtime will find it's way to your Poser directory and place everything in necessary library.

Usage Tips or Limitations:

The clothing set (with the exception of the dynamic dress and skirt and to some degree Poser5+ shaders) will work perfectly in Poser4 and DAZ|Studio. The Heart Skirt has posing handles for aiding you in fitting it to the poses. Please use the visibility poses for the handles in DAZ|Studio for easier adjusting.

The dynamic skirt and dress will not work in Poser4 or DAZ|Studio.

Due to the nature of the dress the extreme poses are not recommended as the fabric will fold dramatically (just as in real life, you do not sit with your knees up or stand with your legs way apart in a dress like this because it might slide up or aside and be unpretty =^^= )

Sometimes Poser 6 makes items with transparency applied disappear in the preview. The clothing will render perfectly ok nevertheless. To make the clothing visible in the preview again you can do the following: select the offending item and go into the Material Room. Click on the “Remove detached nodes” wacro. You can leave the MatRoom now :)

Poser 5 or Poser 6: please turn on the raytracing setting and make sure there is at least one ray bounce set in order to get the reflective effect shown on the thumbnails.

D|S: although the shaders are marked P5, most will work fine with little or no adjustment if the 3Delight render engine is used.

The Aiko19 morph must be manually set on the clothing. This was done to prevent crosstalk if a different morph is injected in the same slot that Aiko19 would use.

Here is a short tutorial on how to use the skirt or the dress in Poser 5/6 cloth room:

  1. Load Aiko and the clothing into the scene and parent the clothing to Aiko's hip.
  2. Set the length of the animation (about 10-15 frames, can be 30 for the dress) in the timeline on the bottom of the page.
  3. Go to the last frame and pose Aiko the way you want. For best folds you can use the final pose on Aiko in a frame in the middle of the animation, so that after fitting to the pose the clothing item drapes more naturally.
  4. Choose the clothing in the scene and go to the Cloth Room
  5. Start New Simulation and change the End Frame number to the amount of frames you have chosen for the animation (10-15). Do not choose any other option. Click Ok. For the dress you can choose “Cloth Self Collision” because it has a collar that might get into the cloth in a weird manner.
  6. Click “Clotify” and choose the object to clotify. If you have chosen the skirt/dress before that it will show you the following: “Object to Clotify: skirt/dress”. If not, click the little black triangle and choose the clothing item from the props. Click OK.
  7. Click “Collide Against”. Add Aiko by choosing her in the Add/Remove section. Let the whole of her be chosen. Make sure that no hair or any props are choosen too, it will slow the simulation down and in most cases break it completely. Set Collision offset and Collision depth to 0.5 and check Ignore Head, Hands and Feet if you do not want the skirt to interact with these parts. You can also uncheck the Neck, Chest, Collars, Forearms and Shoulders (all the upper part) from the collision for the skirt calculation.
  8. The Constrained Group already has the Belt part in itself so that the skirt will not slide off Aiko's hip and the Dress has the buttons in the Rigid Decoration groups.
  9. [optional] Choose Outline in the Document Display Style if you have slower PC, it will probably make the calculation faster.
  10. Calculate the simulation.

If you do not like the way the clothing folds, play with the Dynamic Controls. I usually use Fold Resistance at 20 (instead of 5) to simulate thicker fabrics, like leather, and lower the Static Friction to about 0.1 so that the fabric slides easier against the model and creates less rough folds. You can also choose Cloth Self Collision in the Simulation settings to prevent the cloth from going into itself. In most cases it is not necessary.

If you decide to change something in the settings after the simulation was run once, don't forget to Clear Simulation, it will force Poser to accept the new settings.

For a closer fit of a dynamic clothing item on a figure you can:

  1. resize the figure to 85-90% on ZScale and Xscale in the first frame of the calculation (NOT the YScale which determines the height of the figure)
  2. resize the figure back to normal parameters in the end frame of the calculation
  3. resize the clothing item down to 86-90% on ZScale and XScale in the end frame of the calculation so the figure fills in the clothing item shape when the calculation runs.

You can easily change the pose and recalculate simulation if you go to the last frame and change the pose to something different. Always leave the first frame untouched and make sure the clothing does not intersect with the figure in it or in any other frame of the animation!
