Product Notes:

  • How to add your Runtime folder to Carrara 6:
  • Go to the “Content” tab in your Carrara setup room
  • Click on the tiny triangle at the top-right of the tab
  • Choose “Add Runtime” Select your Runtime folder
  • All of your Poser library files will now be visible in the content tab
  • For more help with importing Poser content, please read the C6 manual, or visit the tutorials section and the forums at www.daz3d.com
  • How to use the hairstyle for Carrara 6:
  • In order to load the hair:
    • Click on the “Golden Age Hair V4” file in the “Objects\Hair\Other\Hairstyles - Balaenanun” folder (in the Presets panel).
    • Drag it and drop it on your figure's head (to access to the figure's body parts, click on the small triangle next to its name in the scene Instance window, on the right of the program's interface). The hair object loads simultaneously with an invisible skullcap.
    • If you want to use the Alice fitting morph, click on the skullcap, then click on the “Morph area list” in the General tab. The available morphs will appear in the “Current area” window. Set the morph value (“Alice fit”) to 1.0
    • Note that the V4 base also fits V4 male by defaut because he has the same skull shape.
    • If you have my other hair packages that include other hair bases, you can try using Golden Age Hair on them, but it will require tweaking to fix pokethrough problems.
  • If you want to change the hair color :
    • Select the hair object.
    • In your Shaders tab, go to “Shaders\misc\Hairstyles - Balaenanun”. Enter the folder that corresponds to the name of the hair style (“Golden Age Hair”).
    • Click on the color of your choice.
    • Drag and drop it on the hair object.
  • Additional notes :
    • If you don't see the product in your presets, because you have installed the product when Carrara was opened, select the “Objects\Hair\Other” folder and then click on “Update folder” in the options on the top-right of the Presets panel. Do the same for the “Shaders\misc” folder.
    • You can also simply close and restart Carrara 6.
    • You will only see the real appearance of the hair and the real look of the colors after you render.
    • You can also alter the colors simply by going to the texturing room. Most shaders are very simple, some others use mixers to combine several colors and create streaks. The hair base is UV-mapped, so you can make texture maps for it using the template. For more information on the Texture room and Carrara 6 hair, please see your C6 manual and www.daz3d.com for tutorials and forums.
    • Depending on the pose of your figure you may need to brush the hair or drape it.
