Product Information

  • Required Products: None

The Fairytale Furniture collection includes basic furniture sets in the style of 18th Century Central Europe, from the heart of the Black Forest, Brothers Grimm country. The latest in this collection is the Once Upon a Time set, a variety of clocks to use in your fairytale settings or in any render where time is of the essence.

Many traditional fairy stories have a time element where the heroes and heroines are often involved in a race against time. From Cinderella to Hickory Dickory Dock, there is often a need to know what the time is. The timepieces in the Once Upon a Time pack are modeled in the Central European style of the mid-18th century which makes them ideal for use in pictures based on the Grimms' Fairytales. This set consists of a Longcase clock (grandfather clock), a wall-mounted Hood alarm clock, a Mantle clock, an Hourglass, a Tavern clock and a morphing Sundial. The numerous textures provided ensure that the furniture will fit into your Fairytale setting whether it be Castle or Cottage.

Additional Details

  • Many traditional fairy stories have a time element from Cinderella to Hickory Dickory so there is often a need for an appropriate timepiece.
  • The items in this pack are modelled in the Central European style of the mid 18th century which makes them ideal for use in pictures based on Grimms Tales.
  • This package consists of :
    • A longcase clock (a Grandfather Clock)
      • Fully poseable hour and minute hands (with unused dials removed)
      • Poseable pendulum (with limits set and unused dials removed)
      • Fully poseable doors (with unused dials removed)
    • A wall-mounted 'Hood' alarm clock
      • Fully poseable hour and alarm hands (with unused dials removed)
      • Fully poseable door (with unused dials removed)
    • A Mantle clock
      • Fully poseable hour and minute hands (with unused dials removed)
      • Poseable pendulum (with limits set and unused dials removed)
      • Fully poseable door (with unused dials removed)
    • A Tavern clock (a Parliament Clock)
      • Fully poseable hour and minute hands (with unused dials removed)
      • Poseable pendulum (with limits set and unused dials removed)
      • Fully poseable doors (with unused dials removed)
    • An Hourglass
      • Poseable Sand (Upper and Lower) for easy animation.
    • A Morphing Sundial
      • 9 channel FBM to have fun with or use one of the 7 Preset MOR pose files (plus a Reset)
      • This comes with 4 stone textures together with associated bump maps and MAT pose files - the MAT files do not effect the shape of the sundial, just the materials. (The sundial has multiple parts, some completely encased in other parts, so some of the morphs may not appear to do anything unless used in conjunction with another morph, such as Roman_Gone.)
  • Animation Pose File for the Hourglass from Fairytale Furniture - Tempus Fugit by Spencer
    • In order to make the hourglass easier to animate I've made a new cr2 with 2 morphs for the upper and lower sand. (My original animation used scale and therefore couldn't be saved as an animation pose) Also included is a 30 frame animation pose which can be applied and run and the output saved as images. These images can be used within Animation Shop (from PaintShopPro) or any other video editor of your choice.
    • When running the animation make sure that 'Skip Frames' is not selected.
    • Alternatively you can examine the animation by using 'Graph'or 'Animation Palette' and modify it to suit your needs. The animation file has been tested in P4, P5, P6, P7 and Daz Studio.
  • Together with associated textures (Old, New (mahogany), Oak/Pine) and MAT Pose files for easy application.
  • DAZ Studio users - if the items render too bright/glossy, select the item, go to the Surfaces window, select the desired material(s) then go to the Advanced tab and set the Glossiness setting to a high value - 90 - 95% is recommended.
