Because the Collar & Arms are subsequent links of the Chest, and the Chest is a child of the Abdomen, using these partial-poses will influence the orientation of the entire upper body. </li> </ul> </li> <li>08 Abdomen-Head Partial-Poses <ul> <li>The 'Abdomen-Head' partial-poses alter the span from the abdomen through the head of the figure without affecting the Collar and Arms. These partial-poses control the ‘twists’ and ‘turns’ of the spine, which is very important when creating Martial Arts poses and scenes. The ability to alter the ‘UpperBody’ partial-poses with the ‘Abdomen-Head’ partial-poses greatly enhances all of the possibilities of the set.</li> </ul>   </li> <li>08 Abdomen-Shoulder Partial-Poses <ul> <li>The 'Abdomen-Shoulders' partial-poses alter the span from the abdomen through the left and right shoulders of the figure. This includes the Abdomen, Chest, lCollar, rCollar, lShoulder and rShoulder. These partial-poses do not affect the rotation of the Forearms and Neck, but they do affect their orientation since they are the next link down (from the Shoulders and Chest respectively) within the hierarchy.</li> </ul> </li> <li>10 Collar-Arms Partial-Poses <ul> <li>The 'Collar-Arms' partial-poses allow you to alter the collar and arms without disrupting the overall action line of the figure by affecting the orientation of the chest.</li> </ul> </li> <li>12 Collar-Arm-Left Partial-Poses</li> <li>12 Collar-Arm-Right Partial-Poses <ul>   <li>The 'Collar-Arm-Left' and 'Collar-Arm-Right' partial poses give you the opportunity to alter only the collar and arm of a given side of a figure. This one addition to this Pose Construction Set greatly increases the number of truly unique poses that it is possible to create.</li> </ul> </li> <li>08 Forearms-Hands Partial-Poses <ul> <li>The 'Forearms-Hands' partial poses alter the lower part of the arms (including hands) without disturbing the position of the upper arms(shoulders).</li> </ul> </li> <li>09 Hand Left Partial-Poses</li> <li>09 Hand Right Partial-Poses <ul> <li>How many times have you had the perfect pose with the exception of the hands? The 'Hands Left & Hands Right' partial-poses alter the individual hands without altering any other part of the figure. <br>   </li> </ul> </li> <li>15 Head-Neck Partial-Poses <ul> <li>The 'Head-Neck' partial-poses control where your character is looking and therefore directly affects the focus of their attention.<br> </li> </ul> </li> <li>05 Hips Partial-Poses <ul> <li>The power of the ‘Hips’ partial-poses is found in their ability to completely change the orientation of the entire figure. Since every other body part is a child of the hips, where the hips go the rest of the body goes. The ‘Hips’ partial-poses offer the ability to lift Michael up into the air and give him the advantage in one battle, and to bring him down to a disadvantage in another.<br> </li> </ul> </li>   <li>05 Leg-Left Partial-Poses</li> <li>05 Leg-Right Partial-Poses <ul> <li>The 'Leg-Left' and 'Leg-Right' partial-poses give you the opportunity to alter the thigh, shin, foot and toe on a given side of a figure. This addition to the set greatly increases the number of ways you can alter the ‘LowerBody’ partial-poses. When used in conjunction with the ‘Hips’ partial-poses you can in essence, create additional lower body poses.<br> </li> </ul> </li> <li>51 Lower Body Partial-Poses <ul> <li>The 'Lower Body' partial poses make giving your character a good leg to stand on as easy as can be. This is done without affecting any portion of the upper body. Each lower body pose is anchored to the ground in a realistic way, with balance and distribution of weight taken into account.<br> </li> </ul> </li> <li>47 Upper Body Partial-Poses   <ul> <li>The 'Upper Body' partial poses allow for one of the quickest ways to a final pose, altering everything above the hips without affecting the hips or anything below. <br> </li> </ul> </li> <li>13 Default Partial-Poses <ul> <li>Default partial-poses for each category of partial-poses are included to make life a bit easier on you. These will allow you to return the entire figure or just the portion of it you wish to it's default state. </li> </ul> </li> </ul> </li> <li><b>65 Compatibility Partial-Poses </b> <ul>   <li>The ‘Compatibility Partial-Poses’ adjust the M4 partial-poses to accommodate the differences in the size and shape of the figures. These ‘Compatibility Partial-Poses’ make the set compatible with Hiro4, Victoria4, and Aiko4.</li> </ul> </li> <li><b>130 Sample Poses </b> <ul> <li>Created with the set to showcase the potential of the set. <ul> <li>100 Sample poses for Michael4/Hiro4.</li> <li>30 Sample poses for Victoria4/Aiko4.</li> </ul> </li> </ul> </li>   <li><b>12 Facial Expressions </b> <ul> <li>Included as a tool to add a bit more life to the spectacular scenes you create with the set. <ul> <li>12 Facial Expressions for Michael4/Hiro4.</li> <li>12 Facial Expressions adapted for Victoria4/Aiko4.</li> </ul> </li> </ul> </li> <li><b>118 Pg.

Let's do the math. . . <ul> <li>The 47 'Upper body' and 51 'Lower Body' partial-poses when combined yield 2,397 poses.</li> <li>Throw in the 10 'Collar-Arms' partial-poses and the number of possible poses jumps to 23,970.</li> <li>Vary the poses with the 15 'Head-Neck' partial-poses and you have 359,550 possible poses. </li>   <li>Alter the poses with the 14 'Abdomen-Chest' partial-poses and you have 5,033,700 possible poses.</li> <li>Adding the 7 'Forearms-Hands' partial poses to the mix yields 35,235,900 possible combinations.</li> <li>Each of these 35,235,900 poses can be altered with the 8 'Abdomen-Shoulders' partial poses included giving you the means to create 281,887,200 poses from the partial-poses we've mentioned so far.</li> <li>Factor in the 12 'Collar-Arm-Left' partial-poses and you have 3,382,646,400 possible combinations. </li> <li>Even without factoring in the Collar-Arm-Right, hips, Hand Left or Hand Right partial-poses, the number of possible combinations is already so large it would seem to fall outside the realm of possibility. In addition, when used as a multi-figure scene creation tool, the set provides exponentially more potential scene combinations. <br> </li> </ul> </li> <li>When creating individual poses, the partial-poses can be used alone or in conjunction with poses you already have. <ul> <li>Re-ignite the life force of your older poses for Michael 4 by enhancing them with the partial-poses contained in this set to create new possibilities.</li>   <li>Be comforted by the knowledge that any poses you acquire in the future can also be enhanced by the partial-poses in this set.</li></ul><br /> </td></tr> <tr> </tr> <tr><td>&nbsp;</td></tr> <tr> </table> <hr width="85%" align="left" /> <br />   Visit our site for further technical support questions or concerns: <a href="">DAZ Support</a> <p>Thank you and enjoy your new products!</p> <p>   <b>DAZ Productions Technical Support</b><br /> 12637 South 265 West #300<br /> Draper, UT 84020<br />   Phone:(801) 495-1777<br /> FAX:(801) 495-1787<br /> TOLL-FREE 1-800-267-5170 </p> </font> </body>
