The hat is just a simple shape, but making it transfer from Hex or wings or both into Poser has been..challenging. I made the cutest one this morning with a curved brim and edges (with trim!) and successfully smoothed it-- and when I put it in Poser the middle part of the hat was just..missing. Not there.
It's a mystery.
So I made yet *another* one and this one, though boring, has no holes. The internal names are a hot mess and the UV map is a mess too, but it's a start.
I did discover "inherit bends of parent" is not always good for smart props, too.
I hope you are all wearing your masks because even a very mild case of Covid is no fun and makes you dumber. But I am getting better every day, though I still can't smell anything! I'm on Day 10. I got my case as a gift from the DMV because they make you take off your mask for your photo, and the clerks were germy (they closed the office soon after). The worst part? MY PHOTO WAS TERRIBLE.
This would be a good year to skip the fall/winter holidays and just do a big Easter instead.

Get well soon! I am glad yours is a mild case, one of my friends is asthmatic and when she caught the dreaded Covid-19 of course she went into the ICU. For two weeks. Even once she was out she was ill for another five months, but the good news is she is well again.
Learning the peculiarities of modelling for Poser is a tricky task. For the hat that came in with bits missing, check the groups in the modelling program, if it has groups. If it doesn't use groups internally check the export options and see if it is exporting some parts in separate groups. For a Poser prop everything should be in just one group. Also check that the export options aren't exporting some parts as separate objects, that will confuse Poser no end.

I am so glad to hear you are on the mend. The hat is so cute and i know you will get it all straightened out. It is a really fun hat and I bet you would like someone to find you a real one. I'll look around and call some people I know. Maybe I can get you one that fell off a truck.

Yup, Daz is much friendlier to 3D models, which is probably part of the reason so many have switched to it. Nice hat though!
Good to hear you're recovering, and I'm all for writing off 2020 entirely, and starting over. Not only has it been hideous in terms of the virus, it's also quite succinctly highlighted the general stupidity of the human race, what with unfounded conspiracy theories, Trump, and, in our case, Brexit (the worst thing to happen to the UK since... well, probably ever, other than COVID). Not really sure why so many Brits still think we're an empire....

OMG, Lynn! Glad you're on the mend, my friend! Hope it leaves you in good health and goes away permanently!
Great job on this, my friend! Hope to someday get into doing some serious prop creation.

Me and Cathy had it four months ago, so I know where you're coming from, well, partially anyway! Love your work here! Stay safe!

Once you do work out settings that work for you between hex and poser guard them with your life!! I have mine written in a book so I can look them up if I lose them as it can take forever to work them out again. So sorry to hear that you caught the virus but I'm glad to hear you are on the mend!!
I have some written down but I accidentally deleted the obj that worked for La Femme morphs so I have to create a new one--I don't know why Poser is so fussy! Some things like posing are so wonderful, and other things are so hard! I wish it was easier to make clothes for it.... I would make shoes all day :D
