Additional Details

  • To use the Bryce version of the bikes:
    • Click on the right arrow next to Create.
    • Change the “installed” directory to User.
    • Click on Import and browse to the folder where you saved the Bryce .obp files.
  • There are 30 racer poses for 6 characters, on 3 bikes; 5 for M3, 5 for V3, 5 for V4, 5 for D3, 5 for SP3, and 5 for Aiko. Each of the figures has a partial pose for wielding a light saber and for shooting a pistol. Each weapon pose will work with all three racing bikes, which results in 9 more poses for each character, or 54 poses out-of-the-box.
  • All poses load in place on each racing bike's default loading position. Apply the “Cruising” pose for any character on any bike. Then apply the weapon poses.
  • There are no Child/Parent relations preset in the poses. For best results in scene creations, attach a rider's Body to the Bike then move the bike.
  • For best results turn of Inverse Kinematics (IK) before applying the poses. Turn off Limits. Poses were made within Limits with a few exceptions for extreme poses.
  • There are no body, morph, morphform, hair, prop, or IK references in the PP2 files for consistent posing results. If you use Morpforms to modify these poses, subsequent pose applications will retain those morphs. Morphforms must be cleared or converted to attain the original pose.
  • All riders were posed wearing Treadz boots. Using thinner-soled shoes or boots may require some leg adjustments to to fit the bike pedals. Aiko was posed wearing thinner-soled boots.
  • The pistol featured in the poses is the SHARD sci-fi pistol-1 available at DAZ.
  • The light saber poses are set for a generic saber. Most any will fit, with or without tweaking, depending on the size of the weapon.
