Product Notes

This Product is officially for DAZ Studio Only!

There is a 3rd-party addon for Poser 7 and up at http://forum.daz3d.com/viewtopic.php?p=1600641#1600641 to make this product work with Poser 7 and Poser 7 Pro as shown below (Strong level applied).

Note the texture maps do work in Carrara. You can place them in the displacement channel with the following settings

Note that reference shaders do not carry the Displacement information so it has to be copied to each skin shader.

After setting the displacement channel on your shader you should then go to the assembly room and with M4 selected, under Edit→Smooth Object add a couple levels of smoothing. (Render time is fine.)

Note that you must be careful with smoothing as this does significantly add to your poly count and if you add too much you can crash your system. (Each level of smoothing roughly quadruples your poly count from the previous level.)
