Post [Tutorial] Head Morphs in Blender

#1  rayera 29 Apr 2007 18:19

Hello People, here I try to tell you how to get head morphs in Blender, you know my english is not that good    so I include a lot of screen captures.
Please give it a try, Blender is a very powerfull free aplication and this new sculpting tool is a real gift for all Poser users, if you are used to other aplications the user interface may be a little problematic, but just open your mind         and you'll see it's not that hard.
I've read this tutorial several times, but if I go on searching for mispels I will never post it    so please english speaking staff members if you find something that you think must be corrected please do it  :::razz: .

The main intention here is encourage the creation of custom morph, it's the best way to add true artistic sence to a character, no mater how simple it's the character will have your own craft, and using a FREE aplication, by now if you wanted to do this you needed to buy in some cases espensive tools, and velieve me as a Zbrush user, you can get the same results in Blender, with even some adventages, like do your morph with the textures on (it may be in Zbrush but by now I didn't find it) or besides the sculp tool you can use the standard modeling tools. (There is a lot, we Poser users can use in Blender, we can even do textures like in Deep Paint 3D or Painter 3D)

Blender Can be downloaded HERE

Once I solve some problems with some scrips I'll post the full body morph tutorial.

Here I use Poser 5 but the proces is the same for version 4, 6 or 7 (Poser 7 have some diferences in the order of the importing an exporting process)

Now you have two 3D windows a big one an a small one, let's tourn the small one into an outliner (scene tree in other aps or hierarchy editor in Poser), LMB in the small icon at the lower left corner of the view and then LMB on outliner

This is what you should have, if you think your outliner is too much small or big just put the pointer over the edge of the two views, press LMB and drag left or right

LMB on View & Contros, here we'll set the view manipulation in a way we, Poser and bryce and Daz Studio users, are used to, the options to select are under View rotation: select Turntable and Around Active. Now put the Configuration panel in its place in the same way you reveled it

The pink square you see in the midle of the 3D view is a cube seen from the up view, let's delete it: be shure the pinter is inside the 3D view and press the DEL key or pres the x key then confirm the delete

Go to file menu and click on click on Save Defoult Seting, OK, now we have Blender Configured for a confortable morphing, let's close it and the next time we open Blender will remember our setings. Now let's go to Poser...

Be careful about this, Posette load with some translations in the body and the hip, and with some scaling in the forearms, please tourn them to Zero, this aply for any figure you want to morph, just take te time to be sure its morph, translations and scale of all body parts are Zero.
