Creating complex outfits in Daz Studio requires extra levels of knowledge and experience. It isn't easy to find a “How to” guide on creating good quality long dresses, full length skirts, long sleeved or multi-layered outfits.

This five part tutorial series creates these types of outfits in detail. It shows you in step by step fashion. In addition there's tuition on creating matching jewellery to boot!

In this second part we walk you through the entire UV mapping processes.

Used in this tutorial: Daz Studio 4.9 Pro, Hexagon for modelling, UV Mapper Pro and UV Layout.

Presented by Arki (Kim Schneider) who has been a long term vendor of complex garments at the Daz 3D store and previously at Runtime DNA.

Duration: Tutorial video runs 2 hours and 4 minutes
