If you rig your character up as a standard SineSpace avatar and getting it working properly, then any clothing purchased (or that you make) in SineSpace should just work properly (if not, file a bug report). If you're rigging up your Daz3D content as a costume replacement (also known as a bypass avatar, since it bypasses the entire avatar, clothing, and attachment system), then you're on your own.

Nice article. I would love to know if there is any cloth rigging tutorial or tool/plugin that could solve the typical mesh bleeding issue. For reference, I have issues with getting custom or bought clothes on a custom animated Daz3D Character in Unity. So far, the character looks good and work. The clothes fit in T-Position but once the animation starts, the vertices from the character bleeds through certain parts again and again. I've looked into the bones skin-weights but was not able to see anything to improve there. the problem grows once certain body-morphs alter the character (giving him more weight or muscles)

Ring of Elysium Xtreme Survival 2D & 3D Challenge
1 February, 2019

Welcome to Europa Island, where it’s kill or be killed in a battle royale. And it’s not just people trying to kill you – the volcanic island is also a deathtrap. But there is one escape helicopter left – with only 4 seats. Can you outrun the volcano, outshoot the competition, and escape the island before it’s too late??

Xtreme Survival is your only chance! And you’re going to need to use your special BMX, grapple hook, or hang glider skills to get out of this mess. So show us your best final 2D & 3D designs (and 4 WIPs) for a chance to win a new gaming laptop, graphics card, other top gaming accessories, and CGMA online classes! And, of course, to escape the island alive.

The Challenge – Choose either Option A or Option B:

+OPTION A – 2D or 3D:
Using the characters & skills from Ring of Elysium, show a character using a skill to escape the volcanic eruption & survive.

Fully design and model/render one Ring of Elysium character using a skill to escape the volcanic eruption of Europa Island. (Showing the volcano is not required.) Whether hang gliding off of the clock tower, grappling through the forest, or BMX-biking off a cliff jump – you decide!
