Product Information

Have an outfit that needs a little extra?

dForce Stretch Belts is a collection of 10 unique buckles with a dForce-enabled belt (plus three bonus buckles that have a poseable ring).

The belt includes joint control morphs to minimize distortion and has a rigid follow node for each buckle so that they have no distortion.

The product has been designed with flexibility in mind - whilst several presets are included, use your own base/transmission colors for infinite combinations!

Additional Details

  • How to use:
  • Tight fitting dForce or conforming garment (eg. one-piece bathing suit, bodysuit, dress cinched at waist)
    • 1. Check that you are on frame '0' of the timeline.
    • 2. Add your desired garment and simulate (if applicable).
    • 3. Freeze simulation of your garment.
    • 4. Add your desired belt wearable to Genesis 9.
    • 5. Simulate.
    • 'Current Frame' simulation should be fine for most cases but you may need to perform an animated simulation for best results.
  • Semi-loose dForce garment (eg. t-shirt, dress that fits close to waist)
    • 1. Check that you are on frame '0' of the timeline.
    • 2. Add your desired garment and simulate.
    • 3. Freeze simulation of your garment.
    • 4. Add your desired belt wearable to Genesis 9.
    • 5. Use the included 'Loosen Waist' dial on the belt to expand the circumference of the belt.
    • 6. Simulate.
    • 'Current Frame' simulation should be fine for most cases but you may need to perform an animated simulation for best results.
  • Loose dForce garment (eg. baggy t-shirt, dress that does not fit close to waist)
    • 1. Check that you are on frame '0' of the timeline.
    • 2. Add your desired garment.
    • 3. Add your desired belt wearable to Genesis 9.
    • 4. Use the included 'Loosen Waist' dial on the belt to expand the circumference of the belt to be just outside the garment . You may need to edit the dial parameter settings and turn 'Use Limits' off to ensure that the belt is outside of the garment.
    • 5. Enable 'Freeze Simulation' in 'Parameters' tab for the belt.
    • 6. Move the timeline to the last frame (default is '30') and make sure that the 'Loosen Waist' dial is set back to '0.0%'. Apply desired figure pose on last frame of timeline as well.
    • 7. Scrub through timeline to check that the belt is resizing and figure pose changing.
    • 8. Perform animated timeline simulation - this will only apply to garment currently.
    • 9. Enable 'Freeze Simulation' in 'Parameters' tab for the garment, and disable it for the belt.
    • 10. Final simulation - this will now only apply to the belt.
  • Top Tips
    • During some simulations the buckle may rotate. Select the parent RFN (rigid follow node) and reset the 'Z Rotate' value back to '0'.
    • Simulating the belt with the 'Loosen Waist' dial applied can cause the belt to simulate very loose. You may need to decrease the 'Contraction/Expansion Ratio' dial in surface settings to counteract this. You may also need to tweak the height of the buckle if the shrinkage is too significant.
    • You can reposition the belt by switching the 'Fit to Mode' to 'Redirect Transforms' which will unlock the transform and rotation dials. Useful if you need the belt to sit higher on the waist or more on the hip.
    • Not all dForce clothing is created equal - some may have more aggressive settings that are more liable to cause explosions.
    • Make sure when doing animated simulations that the arms/hands do not collide with either the belt or garment, as this will cause explosions.
