Step 2 – Shoulders

icon The position of the shoulders can be changed by directly dragging the parts of the image

Step 3 – Hands & Feet

Once you finish making adjustments to the torso and shoulders, there are 2 hand and 2 foot controllers to adjust.

The foot and hand controllers on Design Doll are a little different than those found on typical 3D software

Typical “Bone” Thinking

icon First, determine the primary angle “A”.

Next, determine the secondary angle “B”.

The data is determined by the angle, which changes 360°.


Design Doll Thinking

icon First, determine point “A”.

Next, determine direction “B”.

The data is controlled by the point and direction.

By understanding this difference, the speed of posing can be remarkably increased.

First, drag the hand or foot controller, moving the part that contacts “A”.

However, because the screen is 2D, depth can not be controlled.

This is where the “mini-view” at the bottom right is used.
icon

The “mini-view” always displays what would be seen (at “ground” level) from 90 degrees to the right of the main display.

As a result, you can easily adjust depth, without moving the camera.

Finally, by dragging the pale-colored ring around the controller, you can adjust the direction of “B”.

By moving the cursor around the circle, you can adjust the angle however you like.

Step 4 – Fine Tuning

Directly drag the head, neck, feet, hands, etc to fine tune the angles.
icon Depending on the area, after clicking on a body part, a controller may appear.
These parts can be rotated along the chosen axis by dragging the controllers.

By directly dragging the parts you want to move, you can adjust the various details.

Tips

By unchecking the “shoulder link” or “wrist link” boxes, you can stop the automatic movement of the shoulders and wrists.
