Thread: Solution for the Freak4 scaling problem

  1. #1

    Solution for the Freak4 scaling problem

    The following is a fix for the shoulder/collar scale problem in Freak4 when the FreakScaleOn is enabled. This is directly from the Poser development team and in my tests this fix works. Be sure to follow the instructions in the correct order. Once done, you can save the corrected Freak4 to the library and the fix won't be necessary anymore. Thanks to Larry for providing the fix

    --------

    OK, there is a workaround but it has to be done in the correct order.

    1) open up the freak,
    2) bring up the joint editor,
    3) select the chest actor in Poser,
    4) select the lCollar_SmooX zone in the joint editor,
    5) press the button to fix mismatched scale zones, the problem corrects.
    6) select the Right Collar actor in Poser
    7) select the chest_smoothY zone in the joint editor
    Now press the button again to fix mismatched scale zone.

    Due to internals on how the joints correct themselves, which actor that's selected makes a difference in the results.

    I'm trying to follow this procedure but I don't have this button. Only buttons I see are "Align" and "Scale Zones". Using Poser Pro 2012.

    Do you have SR3.1 installed?
    I vaguely recall that it was an addition to one of the service releases

    I have 9.0.3.23027 which is the latest service release.

    Ok, I think I remember what I did.
    One thing is incorrect in the steps: You have to select the lCollar_smooX zone (not scale, which is not there)
    The Fix Mismatched Scale button will only show when there is a mismatch. Button is below Scale Zones button.

    If that does not work - check out which version of the Freak you have: Mine has a modified date of 7/28/2009. You may have an earlier version. I think (If I remember correctly) there has been an update for it by DAZ in the early days after its release.

    Let me know if this helps

    Hi, it fixes it for the left side but I try the procedure on the right side and is stays the same.

    There are 2 different zones you have to repair with the button
    First: In the Chest Actor you have to fix the lCollar_SmooX zone
    SecondL: In the Right Collar actor you have to fix the Chest_SmooY zone

    It has to be in that order. If you make a mistake, start from scratch (reload the freak)
    I just tried it again and the fix works

    Sorry about the mistakes in the zone names - I typed it from memory and got the names incorrect/incomplete. But these 2 are the only ones which make the button appear

    Great!
    I had not gotten any questions after I posted it, so I forgot to correct the mistakes.

    Have fun with the Freak!

    You may want to correct your first post. This is great information for anyone wanting to use the Freak in Poser with the latest service release. Thanks again.
