Art thoughts…and morph channels….and life in general

Lot of cleaning house tonight…
Lot of redesigning…

(The first part of this post is Google Food…if you have no interest in the fine points of digital modeling….feel free to skip this post)
As a test run of things, I just got done rebuilding the three currently active female characters in the comic right now.  Most people won’t even see the difference, until they see the expressions.

What I did was combine the morphs from the V3 Newgen model with a standard V3 with expressions loaded in.  While I know that there are plenty of injection morphs out there for V3…the ones that are in the Newgen model are totally unique…and Newgen doesn’t take standard morph channels at all.

I used a program that is available at the Morphography site (Kozaburos place) to combine the morphs from two different cr2 files into one final version.  The program is called Morph Manager and does work on the millennium series…and pretty much everything else I have tried out as well.  I also know that it is possible to transfer V3 morphs over to Aiko with this as well.

The reason why it works is that all of the morphs that are buried in a character that control things like whether the eyes are slanted or not…or expressions for that matter are actually scripts.  Morph Manager copies the scripts over to the .cr2 file that you wish it to.

I’ll be trying this soon with the expressions out of V3 Newgen and moving them over to M3.

At any rate…figuring all of this stuff out was how I spent my 33rd birthday.  At least it was relatively interesting.

Sitting here in a dark house right now.  My cat has just gotten done with playing chase the tail on top of her scratching post, and has laid down to sleep.  The first snow is falling from what has been promised to be a real “winter storm”.

Things to do tomorrow…lot of stuff to think about as well.  Need to get the dialog done for tomorrows comic….also need to update the news ticker for Requiem as well.

Shoulder feels like somebody took a cheese grater to my rotator cup right now, other than that I’m okay.  Other than that, what else is there to say?  The Christmas season is approaching….and thanksgrieving is thankfully over.  Hopefully, everybody I give a damn about makes it through the holidays okay.
