Product Information

HD Body Burns Add-On for Genesis 8 and 8.1 Males is an expansion of textures that will provide the base products body burn morphs with 3 different looks: Raw, Carbonized, and Charred.

And because we know characters come in all colors, we have included material settings to be applied to the Geoshell to ensure the textures will blend with light, mid-tone, and dark-skinned characters. Since the texture is applied to a Geoshell wearable with even UVs, we have also included a ton of utility presets to tweak the results to achieve your vision. We have likewise added presets for use with 8.1 characters.

Since the textures are 8K in resolution, we built the product in a way to reduce system resources by having a single map per channel containing all the textures, and then using LIE to build the opacity mask (a LIE preset per mask that corresponds to one of the morphs). For your convenience, we have also included pre-combined masks so you can quickly apply all the burns or burn the entire arm(s) of your character without having gaps between the individual masks.

Additionally, we have included 2 sets of masks. The regular masks (hard) are intended to be used with the Carbonized and Charred presets, and the soft masks are best used with the Raw preset. Having said that, as shown in the promos, you can always mix, match, stack, and experiment for greater variation!

In total, you get 2 Wearable Geoshell presets, 8 Iray Material presets (Raw has a variation for darker-skinned characters), 128 LIE Mask presets, 8 Opacity presets, 4 LIE Bonus Mixing presets (which will stack the base product’s textures for various effects), and 10 Normal and Displacement presets. With the ability to mix, match, and even stack Geoshells, the possibilities for variation and intensity are endless!

And since these are built on a Geoshell in a non-destructive way, you can tweak and refine using the Surface Pane to your heart's content knowing that your character's skin settings will not be affected!

Like with our other packs, these can be combined to help add valuable subtext to your images, allowing you to build characters marked by hardships and pain. They must wear the badges life has bestowed upon them, and whether they wear them with pride, shame, or pain is up to you!

Note: It is important to select the right preset for your character. Using the presets for Genesis 8 on an 8.1 character will result in seams. We have also included a PDF File that explains each preset.

In addition, while this product is intended to work with the base product, it is not necessary. We have included the UV set in this product as well in case someone wishes to only buy this one. Only 4 LIE presets (Bonus Combine, 2 for Genesis 8, and 2 for Genesis 8.1) require the base product.

Additional Details

  • You can also find this information in a handy PDF Read-Me File (HDBodyBurnsM_AO_ReadMe) located:
  • “Runtime/Textures/FenixPhoenix/Body Burns G8M AddOn/
  • This is NOT a merchant resource. This product should be used in accordance to DAZ Studio’s EULA. Which means, you cannot resell these textures or use them on a character you will give away for free or sell. The textures should not be used to create photoshop wound brushes either.
  • The following information details the folder structure for “HD BODY BURNS ADDON for Genesis 8 & 8.1 Male(s)” and should serve as an overview of the product:
  • IRAY & LIE MATERIAL PRESETS:
  • You will find three folders in your “Content Library” under the following path: “People/Genesis 8 Female/Materials/FenixPhoenix/ Body Burns Texture Add On”
  • 01 Prepare |
  • • (01) You will find two wearable presets which will apply a Geoshell around your character. Select the appropriate preset. Every other Iray and LIE preset should be applied to the “MBB Body Burns AddOn” Geoshell from here on out. So, remember to keep the Geoshell Wearable Selected. Also, make sure to change the collision setting of your clothing to the Geoshell in case there is clipping.
  • • The Geoshell applied a custom UV set that will ensue even density. For those who decided to buy the add-on and not the base product, we have included the UV set in this product as well. So, if you are installing manually, do not be surprised if you get the message of whether you want to replace some files.
  • 02 Apply Materials |
  • • (02) These Material Presets should be applied to the Geoshell to set the look of the burn. You have three options to choose from: Charred, Carbonized and Raw.
  • • The Raw preset has an alternate version called Dark Raw which will work better with darker skin characters if you are looking to give the burns a less jarring change of tone.
  • • Again, remember it is important to apply the correct preset. Figures loaded on Genesis 8.1 should have the 8.1 Presets applied to avoid seams.
  • 03 LIE Masks & 03.1 Softer LIE Masks
  • • (03) The following two folders contain the Masks.
  • • (03.1) The Softer Masks are best used with the RAW materials, but –ultimately—you can use them however you want. It is worth noting that these masks can be stacked to accentuate the effect. However, the hard masks are not worth stacking since they are solid already.
  • • You will notice that we have also included some pre-made masks for your convenience which will keep you from having to apply a lot of LIEs. These masks are also different from applying the individual Masks, as they ensure a better transition between the individual masks.
  • • Note that you can apply as many masks as you want to your Geoshell and then go back to the 02 Apply Material Folder to better view and refine the burn textures. You can non-destructively switch to different burn materials without the presets affecting the applied opacity mask.
  • 03 REMOVERS
  • • (04) Here you will find a material preset to wipe your opacity mask.
  • • (04.1) Next, you will find some handy opacity effects to refine the effect of the MBBA Body Burns Geoshell on your character and help to blend the burn textures with your underlying character’s skin.
  • • (04.2) These next presets will turn off or on the normal and displacement maps of the Geoshell. These can help with render times if you are not doing close-ups.
  • 05 BONUS MIXING
  • • (05) Last but not least we have four Iray LIE Presets in this folder. These presets require having the base product, since they will add the base product’s textures atop the materials you have chosen to create a different effect.
  • • Keep in mind that applying these presets is only worth it if you are using the soft masks. Hard Masks will make little difference, but you can always experiment.
