Digital content & Poser Freebies
Hello and welcome to LadyfyreGraphics digital doodles. I create my digital artwork mainly with Smith Micro's Poser, Daz3d's Daz Studio, Carrara 8, Daz Hexagon (for 3d modelling), E-on Software's Vue and of course Adobe Photoshop software.
I love making Poser morphs, characters and textures, especially for the poser horse models. I have a small herd of real horses as my muse and use photographs of them and friends horses to build my textures and poses from. I also have some clothing textures and free hair models that I have made over the years available in my free Poser downloads.
I have posted several tutorials and articles here, how to make Poser hair models in Cinema 4d is one example.

Well I figured out how to fix my previous mistake with my custom mane model for the Daz Horse 2 3d figure and then I decided to make a morph to temporarily fix the bending problem until I work out how to use Daz Studio’s rigging.
Fixing the broken geometry
At first I thought I’d lost around 8 hours worth of work with the mesh breaking on my object but luckily I had saved the base figure under a different name a couple of days previously so opened up the broken figure in NotePad++ (please note I always save my work uncompressed so that I can edit it if needed in a text editor) and searched for the .dsf file in it so that I could find it’s location. I then opened the dsf file folder up in windows explorer and changed the file extension to .dsfbak.

I’ve hit a problem with my mane figure for the Daz Horse 2 model in that when loaded in a scene you can only select it from the scene panel in Daz Studio, I had thought that I had hit a bug in Daz Studio but it doesn’t look as though anything else is effected 🙁
Sometimes I wonder why I just can’t accept things as they are and move on to the next project. Instead I’m a tinkerer who is never happy if there is the possibility of improving one of my creations…
Over the years I’ve created quite a few personal figures with Poser’s built in tools and am quite happy with editing the figure rigging and adding things like ghost bones although I’m no way near being a guru i manage to muddle along.
Well since last night I’ve been working on my mane for the Daz Horse 2 model, making some more morphs and editing the groups to help it to conform better when the horses neck bends, learning as I go. This morning I had the idea of making ghost bones for movement and so opened up the property editor and found out how to create a bone quite easily but could not figure out how to make it effect the forelock area that I was trying to make it bend.
