Figure Setup DS4 is an add-on plug-in developed by DAZ 3D. It is not a stand-alone add-on but its main function is to come as a bundled complement to DAZ Studio 3. The bundle may also come with the Advanced Figure Setup Tools. The Figure Setup Tool allows users to use geometry in completing designing tasks. The tool allows the drop and drag system when designing projects. It is usually used to create real-life human characters.
Its main features include Skeleton Setup, Joint editor, CR2 Exporter, Property Editor and Morph Loader. Skeleton setup helps define bone structure and hierarchy. Joint editor may be helpful in editing or removing bones. CR2 Exporter goes by the same name as .cr2 format or Poser character. Morph Loaders tackles morphs in figures by group. Once familiar with main features, users will see the objects on the central window of the screen interface.
In creating realistic skeleton figures, there are a few things to consider when using Figure Setup DS4. First, it is important to set up a figure using the tool. Users can come up with such a figure by using any other tools like Carra or Hexagon. Joint editing comes next to rig a human figure to make it appear three dimensional and realistic. Users of the software will deal with many 3d-related objects such as polygon, texture, and weight map.
