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)

VANCOUVER, Canada – February 5, 2019 – Today, Ziva Dynamics launches Ziva VFX Academic, making the world’s most advanced character simulation software more accessible to students and researchers. For $60/year, qualified users can harness the same tools used on Pacific Rim: Uprising for their non-commercial projects, gaining the benefits of real-world physics as they hone their skills.

“Ziva is spreading throughout the industry and studios are telling us they want as many experts as they can get,” said James Jacobs, CEO of Ziva Dynamics. “With Ziva VFX Academic, students will be able to afford the latest advancements, helping them build skills that will increase their marketability after graduation.”

Used on everything from Venom to Mackevision’s VES Award-nominated PETA adZiva VFX fundamentally changes the character creation process by combining the effects of real-world physics with the rapid creation of soft-tissue materials like muscles, fat and skin. Since Ziva mirrors the properties of nature, artists can produce CG characters that automatically move, flex and jiggle just as they would in real life, removing difficult steps from the rigging process.

“Traditional approaches such as shot sculpting and correctives have poor scalability,” said Lasse Rasmussen, VFX pro and educator (One of UsTrueMax Academy). “Tissue simulation is the only way to hit the precision studios expect and Ziva is the only commercially available tool that can do it.”

As Rasmussen advises his own students, the rising demand for 3D characters is only going to make simulation knowledge more valuable as time goes on. “It’s not just about film VFX,” he says. “It’s something game developers also want to see. Displaying any kind of aptitude with simulation software is going to give aspiring VFX artists an edge.”

Ziva VFX Academic licenses are fully featured and will receive the same access and support as other Ziva products, including:

  • Frequent software updates and hotfixes
  • Detailed tutorial videos and content
  • Access to live Ziva demonstrations
  • Direct feedback and support from the Ziva team
  • Free character assets for test simulations
  • Eligibility for reel, case study and artist showcases

Ziva VFX Academic licenses are open to any fully accredited institution, student, professor or researcher and are available now.
