Playing around with MakeHuman and C4D for posing models.

I made a few models and put them in a studio in C4D and tweaked the poses a little, it's getting easier but sometimes envisioning the correct bone/joint movement is a trip...


...I'll probably get round to integrating people into more Terragen scenes eventually.

The girl on her knees has done it for too long, I suppose  :P Otherwise, good idea to use some people in renders.

Yea, somewhat "sharp" points on the front of the knees. I did notice, I just couldn't be bothered trying to smooth the mesh on this occasion. I selected it in point edit mode and on seeing the number of adjustable points (there were many) I decided to leave it this time.

If MakeHuman gets more content I think it could be very useful, it's a bit lacking in the clothes/hair dept at the minute.


So, in conclusion, if you are interested in human models for use in Terragen and you haven't tried it out then give it a look...

...and if you're a modeller get making clothes for that library!

Regarding the missing clothes do take a look at Marvellous Designer. 30 Day full unrestricted demo. Export fully enabled. Pretty self explanatory interface and great results.

I had it a LONG time ago back in the days of Poser 5 but trying to use it on my 15" CRT was endurance trial. I'll have to have a look at how it behaves now I have a monitor you can actually see.

$720 USD per year seems a bit high unless you are in the business of creating content.

If I was gonna use it for an extended period but didn't think it was worth the cash, then it would be simple (and legal?) to install it in a VM and reset the image after 29 days. I don't think it would be too much trouble to do it not being a major part of the workflow.

You can actually get a perpetual licence for $550 according to the pricing models on the website, which I don't suppose is too bad. So if it ended up being used a lot it might be worth buying to not work in a VM.

Well I'm seeing a $550 perpetual license. Still pricey I agree. But as part of an evolving toolset I am considering it

As a sideline; if you reset the image, won't the app still read the actual date on the machine? I'm pretty sure it would.

Hadn't thought about it that far, but for that there's a program called RunAsDate, which considering my previous shady behaviour would deal with that or there's a trick with the disabling of the timesync service. Although now this is getting dangerously close to something that it's not.

I would buy it if it became a real part of my workflow proper, but for a few one off's now and again...

Yes, it's gotta be worth the investment, or you have to be wealthy enough.
