Additional Details

  • A complete .pdf documentation can be loaded directly in the product, but here is the summary :
  • Select your Genesis 2 figure and apply the file “WT Apply Wet Tanned Genesis 2”.
  • If necessary, you can then adjust bump effects and gloss effects in parallel if required using the files located in folders :
    • 01 Gloss Effect Management
    • 02 Bump Effect Management
  • Increasing bump reduces the wet look but is important to make it less uniform. Increasing gloss effects and top coat effects increases the wet look. All the bump and gloss increase and decrease files can be applied several times successively since they will increase and decrease the effect with a percentage of the current values of the parameters on your figure.
  • It is always better to set up the skins tanned and wet look with the light set you plan to render it with.
  • In case of trouble, at any step :
    • either select your figure and load the patch file named : !WT Flatten Gloss If Necessary located in the “05 Flatten Gloss Patch” folder
    • or apply the Genesis 2 wet settings of DAZ original figures corresponding to your present UV set, located in “ 06 Transfer DAZ Original Characters Wet Settings”.
    • Once done, if necessary, re-adjust bump effects and gloss effects in parallel to reach the type of skin you have in your mind.
  • Changing Tan :
    • Finally, you can change tan independently from the wet look using files located in “03 Tan Options” folder. You can even remove tan. The tans appearing too greenish on your figure are generally dedicated to figures with very pale initial skins.
  • Removing Wetness :
    • If you want to remove the wet look and keep the tan, you can decrease first “top coat effect” several times, then decrease “all glossiness by large steps” several times too, using the files located in “01 Gloss Effect Management”.
  • I would finally like to thank all the people who helped me on this project, without them this could never have been finished.
    • Richard and Rob have been, as usually, very helpful for general scripting issues. Thank you also Esha and Anton for all your work and support on this project. Last but not least, a huge thank you to DraagonStorm who helped me a lot when I was totally lost!

Resolved Issues

  • 2016-07-08 - Due to the render engine update in Daz Studio 4.9, the skins tones (tans) were not working properly for version above 4.9. This is fixed now, the main conversion script will automatically adjust the skins to your Daz Studio version (4.8 or 4.9 and above).
