Getting Rid of Feet Poke-Through (DAZ Studio)

leave a comment »

I have a decently-sized collection of 3D content for DAZ Studio but I never actually use it. Or I just do little renders on white backgrounds which have no artistic merit to them whatsoever. Anyway, I was trying out the UberSurface shader that comes with Studio 3 Advanced today. Loaded The Girl 4, some clothes, posed, but alas! Foot poke-through!


I used to think that you’d need a Hide Feet pose (like the kind that came with Gen 3 figures) to solve this but it’s actually much simpler.

Select the parts you want to hide (in this case lFoot, lToe, rFoot, rToe) and toggle Visible to Off under the Parameters tab.


Alternatively, click on the eye under the Scene tab.2010-01-27_155226Et voila.
