From the OptiTex Dynamic Clothes site, as written also in some previous posts (you can read them here and here), can be downloaded several Dynamic Clothing for free, available for character like Victoria 4, Victoria 5, Michael 4 and Genesis and used with the OptiTex Dynamic Clothing Control plugin.
In this post we will see how to install the zipped files in DAZ Studio and where to find the content after the installation process.
Installation of the OptiTex Dynamic Clothing zipped files
After having downloaded your favorite files from the OptiTex site, locate your download folder and extract the zip files on a temporay folder.
In this example, the Flared Dress contains another zipped files named content that must be extracted.
Now open the content folder to see three more folders: data, People and Runtime.
The important thing is that for each dress you find the data, People and Runtime folders.
Wishing you can directly copy these folders in your default My DAZ 3D Library folder, but I prefer to create a new library in which to install exclusively the OptiTex Dynamic Clothing contents.
C:\Users\Public\Documents\My DAZ 3D Library.
So if you want to add a new library, create a new folder in your Public Documents folder, or in any preferred path, name it for example OptiTex Library and now copy the extracted files in this folder.
Finding the OptiTex installed content
Now open DAZ Studio and if you’ve created a new library press F2 to open the Preferences, move on Content Library tab and click on Content Directory Manager….
Highlight DAZ Studio Formats and click on Add, locate your new library and click on Select Folder, then click on Accept and another time on Accept to exit from the Preferences.
Now go on the Content Library tab and under DAZ Studio Formats search your new folder (or in the My DAZ 3D Library, if you’ve copied the files in the default library) to see the installed Dynamic Clothing.
This was so simple once I read your tutorial. Thanks so much. Now I need to learn how to use all of the cool new dynamic clothing I just downloaded. Thanks again.
