Product Information

  • Required Products: None

The Striga Ensemble introduces eight outfit parts - three of them dForce compliant beautifully draping pieces. The skirt, oversleeves and shoulderdrapes will bring a hint of luxury and classic beauty to your renders. They are easily customizable through a collection of morphs and movement control dials, so you are in full control of their behaviour at every time.

On top of the outfit, RiverSoft Art contributed a stunning set of twenty carefully crafted poses with their mirrored counterparts.

To make working with the Striga Ensemble as painless as possible, we have also provided hierarchical pose presets which will apply the pose of your choice to the Genesis figure AND presimulated draping morphs to the fitted outfit parts at once.

You have the choice if you want to use dForce or not!

To add a final finish, the eight texture sets by Arki and Shox-Design are saved as either indivdual material settings or can be fully loaded onto the fitted Striga Ensemble through Hierarchical Material Presets. Please view our tutorial videos for the Striga Ensemble below to get an overview of the included features:

* They can be found in their own section under Actor - Controls. These controls are even useable after running a dForce simulation to do some minute adjustments or changes.

* How to work with the Striga Ensemble and dForce

* If you want to set up a dForce simulation, please take the following steps:

  • 1 - Load G3F/G8F into your scene
  • 2 - Apply The “ST “Turn Limits Off” utility to your Genesis figure
  • 3 - Apply the “Striga !Full Simulation ready” wearable preset to your Genesis figure
  • 4 - Set up an animation with 41 frames
  • 5 - In frame 1, set a keyframe (click on the little key icon with the plus symbol inside, to the far right end of the bottom icon bar) with Genesis in default pose and your freshly loaded simulation ready wearables preset
  • 6 - Go to frame 10, select one pose for Genesis from your Poses - Striga folder. Add a new keyframe in pose 10
  • 7 - Go to the Simulation tab inside DAZ Studio and change the following default settings: Start Bones from Memorized Pose - OFF, Frames To Simulate: Animated (Use Timeline Play Range), Collision Mesh Resolution: Viewport
  • 8 - Hit the “Simulate” Button!

* How to use the Hierarchical Pose Presets

* These presets will apply a pose to G3F/G8F and at the same time dial in the presimulated morphs for the draping outfit pieces.

* How to use them:

  • 1 - Load G3F/G8F into your scene
  • 2 - Apply The “ST “Turn Limits Off” utility to your Genesis figure
  • 3 - Apply the “Striga !Full Pose Presets ready” wearable preset to your Genesis figure
  • 4 - Go to the “Pose Presets” folder inside the Striga clothing folder
  • 5 - With Genesis selected, click on one of the presets. DS should now load the pose to the Genesis figure AND the outfit parts

* NOTE: Please use a neutral Genesis in zero pose and the Striga Outfit in zero pose before using one of the hierarchical pose presets. Otherwise you could end up with multiple active draping morphs which will cause clipping

* A detailed instruction can be found through the linked tutorial videos below.
