Welcome to Simply Posing for Genesis 8 and 8.1 - Video Tutorial, the tutorial that trains you on every aspect of posing in Daz Studio, from novice to professional level. With over 6 hours of training videos, Neil Clennan covers the basics of rotation and translation, explains the structure of the Genesis 8 and 8.1 figures, and continues through the intermediate and advanced aspects of everything you need to create finished products.

Neil explains every subject in detail, technically and conceptually, in easy to understand language. You’ll learn:

01. all about the rotation properties - how they can become confusing and frustrating and how to resolve those issues by understanding how they work.

02. all about pose controls - how they can combine multiple rotations, translations, and morphs, as well as the challenges they present for mirroring and partial presets.

03. which pose controls are safe to bake, why some are not, how to select the best options when baking them, and why you would want to bake a pose.

04. how to use parameter settings to overcome limitations and get greater control over the Genesis 8 and 8.1 figures.

05. how to overcome some of the limitations of poses you purchase when applying them and how to apply full figure poses as though they were partial poses.

06. how to create the mirror image of poses for individual figures and even how to mirror the poses for groups of interacting figures.

07. the proper way to save pose presets, both full figure and partials, so they behave the way your customers expect.

08. about special considerations when creating and saving pose presets for interacting characters and special considerations for facial expressions.

09. how to organize your poses and create good tooltips, providing good preview images and authorship data.

10. how to bring this all together into a workflow that will produce sets of distributable and marketable pose presets, including full-figure poses, partial poses, mirrored poses, and facial expressions.

Simply Posing includes example pose presets and scenes for use during the lessons. Also, you’ll find PDF reference documents that will be useful during the lessons and will continue to be handy long after you’ve finished the tutorial.

Learning to pose figures can be one of the most intimidating obstacles to creating amazing 3D art with Daz Studio. Let Neil be your personal guide with Simply Posing, paving the way for you to make the art you envision.
