Uh, if it you get error, don't worry about it. Um, I don't really use it. And then once everything's downloaded, uh, you will go to ready to install of topping, and that will show you all the stuff that's going to be installed. Ah, you'll probably have more than morning that, um after everything's downloaded it, it will be in the ready to install. So once you have everything installed, everything will be showed in the stall tab. I have a lot of stuff installed. So after everything is download installed, it will be installed. So after this, I'm just going to go ahead and skip forward and go into desk three D. So once everything installed, go ahead and open up. Dash three D and let's get started. Very next. Uh, go in low Dad's studio mind. Just 4.11 But if you're from the future, you might have a later version also. Ah, it'll be good to ah, log in as well, but you'll be taken to, uh, this layout. Okay, so when the in the layouts again, it's good to log in to let me log in here. I'll get into my profile. And what that does is anything that you purchase. Ah, you'll be able you can use. But anyways, let's go in. So in this section right here, this is where you will add Ah, your models and it and everything. And also they will show up here is well, so let's go ahead. So, being it started, uh, I'm gonna go ahead and add a Genesis eight, uh, female model. Ah, you will probably have. Ah, minds is ever because I have, like, a lot of other stuff that I purchase, but, um, but the more off the date will be a Genesis eight female model. Um, you had a Genesis eight male, but I'm gonna go ahead ad chilled to add. This is two ways you can add it. You can double click it, and then that will add the D model here and Of course, they will be in their birthday suit. And another way will be too. I made lead this. I'm going to just go ahead and drag the Genesis eight model on and you just dread it on there, just like that. Now, add the Genesis eight model to the scene. Okay? When you are like the Genesis eight model, let's go ahead. Had close to it to her. So basically, you will. Once you and we've highlighted you'll give these options in your files. OK? So if you're here, make sure you click on fouls. You get all these options. All right, you click out of it, you get more, but go back and select the model so you can click it once or you go up here and click here . So let's go ahead and add Ah, and close to it. Once you selected will give you clothes that's already there that you get add very pre pre selected of yours might be different. So I'm just gonna go ahead and select this so we'll go ahead and also select this as well. It will be the bar dot outfit once the bar that outfit selected it will be add added to the model. So let's go ahead. Have here to the model so she won't bald. Uh, So what I like to do is I would like to go to to to loose here. So if you double click to lose here Now, add add, uh, here to the model. Okay, moving forward. Next. What we're gonna do is, um I'm gonna show you how to move around, so of you. If you hold down the, uh, have you go appear view orbit and hold down the left mouse button that will allow you to move around, uh, and over. All right. And then hold down the left mouse button and go up to this one right here that allows you go up and down and left the right while you moving the mouse. This will allow you to ah, zoom and do him out. You know, also do that by, uh, using the middle mouse button. And this allows you to, um, select a Pacific area. So let's see here. If I go to the here, right, and I double click this or it's quick once, it will move up to the here. Did your if I go like the Bardot skirt. It will disco to the skirt, all right. And I was selected female, and then it will go to the female. All right, so next, what we're gonna do is very going to add a a an environment. So when I click out of that to to de select and then you see over here and you false you goto environments, not environment that we're gonna be Look using before this crap cross tutorial will be the shaded haven double click, shady Haven. And then that will add the shaded haven to the scene. All right, so I'm gonna go ahead once that's added. No, select the model, and I'm gonna and just rotated because of you. Have you see this? You have this open space just rotated. Uh, so we just have it so we won't have to see this open space. We're gonna have it. Have it just CC right here. So we see Tito found and and her and everything like that. So let's go ahead and rotate the model. So you go down here. Ah, you see where you if you hover over here, that allows you to rotate around the why access. So you can rotator. Like so. All right. Ah, another way, which you could do is to rotate it. You see where Sit for parameters. This will allow you to rotate here as well rotate. Why, as I'm rotating, allowed me to do it. Do it over here. Also. As you can see, you don't see it. You see, her feet is going through the through the floor. So let's go ahead. Select the Genesis eight female once, then move up on the wide. So you see, where's where you highlight hover over this, allow you to move, move it up. The why and also this will allow you to move it left and right. And this allows you move it from back and forth. All right, so once we have that, uh, have to have that set. Let's go ahead and add a post to it to her. So go through poses and you'll be given different poses. You can select whatever post pose you like. Like said, I have more stuff, but but you should get some some Ah, already you supposes that you can can use. So what I'm gonna do is, uh, so uh, I believe these are the start opposes down here.

And then let's move this up is about a little bit more. I'm just using my mouse wheel to zoom in and out and moving up and down to two here. Oh, and just just go and try. Try different poses out that that you like. She got the deuces sign or Nissan. So, um so once that's selected. And what you can also do is if you want to see it. Ah, and a what they call envy. Ah, I I read or see how? Well, look with render you select this and go to envy irate and you select and very irate. And that will give you a, um, on on a pretty good idea on how it will look and then a dependent on on your GPU or CPU. But it's best to use your your ah, your ah, your RG gpu. All right. And, um and that's coming out nicely. So for the not a thing is a beast. Select the here, let's go add and selector here you see how you get your animations materials, discarded materials and give you different materials that you can can select So you can do do ah do different ones? Um, let's see here, you know an update. So go through the materials and try. Tried entails now. Yeah.

So the once once we have that up, you can go ahead and render it so to go ahead and render Ah, you go over here and you go to render settings. Now, let's get this set up because you you might not have it set up. So of you go to engine amusing and and video irate. Ah, you can use three d light, but I'll use envy irate because right now, um, also, if you go to let's see here, go to, um select, select render moan make sure Brenda Mode is set up to voter Real. All right, and then, yeah, that's all we did worry about just our random moment for a real and let's go to advanced. Make sure photo real devices set to your your GPU your graphics card, not CPU. Ah, and also make sure that this is checked and also your interactive devices is set to your GP you, not you CPU, because your GP is the one that would do all the work. So So we will go ahead and click on render, and once you are months is done and should take, it will take a couple minutes or to ah, a couple minutes. There are 30 minutes or an hour, depending on the, uh, the GPU and then Ah, right now what is doing it is rendering it everything out right now. So if you click on that, it is start start to render process. And right now it's it is rendering. Okay, so So once. Okay, so so have that. You are done.
