¡Estamos de cumpleaños! 🎂 (HILO)

Cumplimos un añito de vida, un añito lleno de alegrías y de pequeñas derrotas que afortunadamente hemos superado.
Empezamos haciendo todo esto para nosotros, por coleccionismo y porque nos encanta #FFXIV y nos atrevimos a empezar esta aventura que conocemos como MagitekWorks, para haceros sentir igual que nos sentíamos nosotros cuando terminábamos una de nuestras creaciones.
No hay nada, que nos haga mas feliz que veros reaccionar a los pedidos cuando os llegan.

No podríamos haber llegado hasta aquí sin vosotros, vosotros que compráis, que comentáis, que dais likes y retweets...

GPose Guide: Lighting 103 - Instances

Previously, we talked about gpose controls and how to use them in a controlled setting. But instances offer amazing places for scenario composition: so grab your backpack, we're hitting the Duty Finder!

#ffxiv #gposeguide #gposetutorial Image
One thing that may escape our attention when planning for solo shots is that it's very easy to use dungeons as backdrop: Newer dungeons benefit from Explorer Mode, while older dungeons can be entered solo by selecting Unrestricted Party. Both options can be found under Settings. ImageImageImage
Raids, on the other hand, can be finicky. There's no Explorer Mode, but regular 8-people raids can be accessed with Unrestricted Party.

Some (I'm looking at you, NiER raids) have access points that you can use to jump into an empty copy of the raid instances. ImageImage

Quick GPose tip:
You can use profile-relative positioned point lights to give volume and definition to faces and expressions. It's super quick to set up, and it cleans up jagged light projections too!

#NenekoColorS #GPOSERS #FFXIVScreenshots #ffxiv #GShade #gposeguide #gposetip
Just position the camera in parallel to the character's face, making sure you get the full profile, and set up the point light.
Now that you know the trick, here are some examples of this lighting setup - notice how defined the profiles look:

Did you ever lose your keybindings or HUD layout configuration?
Or maybe preset changes, or wish you could revert a preset you modified a bit too much?

Good news - we can use GitHub for backup!

[Difficulty: Savage, but worth it]

#ffxiv #gpose #gposeguide
🧵/ ∞
For this recipe, you'll need:

- 1(one) GitHub account
- 1(one) installed Github Desktop client
- 1(one) Game installation
- LOTS of patience

Ready? Let's do this!
Step 1 - Dude, where's my preset?

Let's start by finding where your FFXIV installation lives.
(I'm using the standalone client on Windows 10, so your mileage may vary.)

@FF_XIV_EN I logged onto XIV this morning and got wrongfully suspended for just playing PvP. My account, previously having no warnings or bans, got hit with a 10 day suspension for “manipulating matchmaking in crystalline conflict”. I have no clue what I did to receive this. 1/10
I worked really hard this season and all of the characters I climbed to Top 30/Top 100 have been removed from the board. The time spent climbing this season has been for absolutely nothing. I’ve been playing PvP since Feast season 14, and have never seen this happen before. 2/10
Heres an imgur album showing all the characters that have been removed off the board. I’m still shocked at all of this, I never thought I’d be banned for just playing PvP like I normally do. Just a horrible situation and nothing I can do about it. 3/10

GPose Quick Tips: Portraits

It's time to put your Warrior of Light in the spotlight, so let's borrow some IRL photograph techniques and tips and adapt them to gpose!

#ffxiv #gpose #gposeguide #gposers
From Wikipedia: "Portrait photography, or portraiture, is a type of photography aimed toward capturing the personality of a person or group of people by using effective lighting, backdrops, and poses."…
Given the nature of this theme, we'll be relying heavily on facial expressions. If you want to learn more about how to use the gpose tools for that, check out this thread:

GPose Guide: Group Posing

Have some friends visiting? Maybe a themed event? Or maybe your static got World First?
That moment deserves to be remembered, so let's learn how to give everybody an opportunity to shine - together!

#ffxiv #gpose #gposeguide #gposers
Group shots have their own complications. It can be hard to coordinate a large group, glams can clash with each other, or be unbalanced in the way they draw attention, and lighting can be tricky to set up.

So what can we do?
1- Scene Composition

If you can talk with the group about positions, there are several that work well with minimal effort:

- Taller characters behind, shorter characters in front

A short GPose Guide: Action & Narrative

Eorzea is a living, breathing world, and our WoLs' stories are part of it. Here are some tips - some, borrowed from real-life photography - that'll help convey their actions and stories!

#ffxiv #gpose #gposeguide
1 - Narrative Shots

Susan Sontag, in her book On Photography, said: "There is the surface. Now think - or rather feel, intuit - what is beyond it, what the reality must be like if it looks this way."

A narrative shot tells a story at a glance.…
In gpose we have several resources that can help us with that. The basics are expressions (a subgroup of emotes), gaze control, and lip movements; they can bring a character to life by turning the default doll-like expression into something truly expressive.

GShade guide: External Textures

External textures open up an amazing world of possibilities: think of different backgrounds, superimposed visual effects, or custom stickers (like logos or decoration)!

So grab a coffee and let’s how to do this!

#ffxiv #gposeguide #gposers
But first, what’s a texture? In short, a texture is simply an image, like a .jpg or.png, that you can load and use within the 3D space for different purposes. In broader 3D terms It often means the ‘skin’ you wrap a 3D model’s wireframe surface around.
You can learn more about the broader meaning of texture mapping with this handy video:

GPose + Post-process guide: Diorama Shots

Let's use some light post-processing to give our shots that lovely toy-like feeling of a diorama!

We'll use GIMP for post-processing, but any image editing tool with support for layers should work.

#ffxiv #gposeguide #gposers
This is an attempt to emulate the result of miniature effect/tilt shift, where a real place is made to look toy-like by clever usage of blur to simulate the loss of focus caused by the forced depth of field. The principle is explained here:

To further help with the feeling, let's use an isometric view. Quoting Gustavo Pezzi, it's "a method for visualizing 3D objects in two dimensions, but [...] we make the angles between the x-axis, y-axis, and z-axis equal 120 degrees."…

GShade Tip: Vertical Shots with VerticalPreviewer.fx

Pixels - the most expensive commodity in the Glamour universe. A considerable amount is discarded when focusing on vertical content. So let's reclaim them with the help of a GShade technique!

#ffxiv #gposeguide #gposers
A typical situation when gposing is to have our subject(s) centered on our screens. If you're preparing images for Twitter or Eorzea Collection, you may need to crop them, keeping only the center intact. That means that everything else is discarded.
One way to make better use of the screen real state is to tilt the gpose camera and get the viewport closer to our subject. That translates into a higher pixel count for the zone that really matters to us.

Preset Showcase: Maya Purple Cocoon

We just talked about posing dark-skinned characters. So let's use the opportunity to talk about Maya's Skintones subset from the Purple Cocoon collection, created with these tones in mind!

#GPOSERS #ffxiv #GShade #GPoseGuide #GPoseTips
@MayaPurrrple Maya Purple Cocoon is part of the default GShade collection: You can find it under gshade-presets.
@MayaPurrrple The presets are implemented in two subgroups. Obsidian is focused on skin tones with some color component to it, while Shungite is geared towards pure grey skin tones. This example shows the Warm preset variants:

GPose Guide: Dark-skinned characters

I got some questions about how to work with dark-skinned characters - and also heard some comments on how hard it is to gpose them. So here's a compilation of use cases, some techniques, and setups!

#ffxiv #gpose #gposeguide #gposers Image
1 - Posing in dark settings

This is where dark-skinned characters shine, pun intended. Point lights give a lot of flexibility, and character/environment lights are great tools to give volume and detach characters from the background. Image
In this example, 3 point sources are used to provide volume to the characters, without relying on character brightness at all. The Neneko Nikuman preset gives great brightness, contrast, and depth of field (DoF) options. Image

Gpose Tidbits: Avoid Twitter Crop

Leon often spends a long time positioning 16:9 compositions.
Leon also posts those on Twitter, forgetting that it crops to roughly 12:9 for visualization, and sighs as it mangles the shot.
Don't be a dumdum like Leon.

#ffxiv #gpose #gposeguide Image
Luckily there's a way to avoid that if you use GShade.
By enabling CompositionFifths and CompositionThirds you can get a grid that roughly matches Twitter's display ratio. Image
Addendum: HOLD YOUR LUNAR WHALES! @adriftingtender provided an even better solution: Enable the AspectRatioComposition shader, and specify 12:9 as the aspect ratio; then, just crop the dark edges out in post-processing. Image

Starter GPose hints: Lighting 102 - Outdoors

Now that we know some basic lighting techniques, it's time to wander into the wild!

There's a lot that's out of your control, like weather and natural light. Let's use those to our advantage!

#ffxiv #gpose #gposeguide #gposers
1 - Use supplemental lighting

You can use the 3-point light sources and the Character lighting setting to bring attention to the subject, making it pop from the background.
In the example below, Noemie is pretty dim against the background; so we position a yellow source to reinforce the sunlight, a blue source for the sky, and a cyan source for the pool reflection.
