PHRASE-MAKER, 3D Writing and Design Scripts for Daz Studio with Bonus 3D Font
Authors:

Phrase-Maker is a collection of 31 Daz Scripts for placing and arranging 3D alpha-numeric and symbol props in Daz Studio. When used with Phrase-Maker compatible props, these scripts will enhance your artwork and animation projects. To get you started, we have incuded a 3D Font set which consists of Ninety-Four (94) Props including lower/upper case english alphabet (52), numbers (10), and symbols (32). The 3D font was designed so that you can colorize the complete character; use your favorite Shaders and Textures on the face and rear of characters; or combine the use of colors, shaders and textures to get the look and feel you need for your project. The ways in which these props can be used in your projects is only limited by your own imagination. Here are but a few of the ways in which you can improve your workflow and renders:

- Integrate text into scene eliminating post-work with 2D paint programs
- Add text elements to props and eliminate need to create additional texture files
- Add titles and captions to your artwork or promo image renders
- Mix characters to develop your own artist or company logo in 3D
- Create your own greeting and holiday card covers using only DAZ Studio

The BASIC control scripts enhance general creation of words and phrases. You will find the Group Chars most useful for grouping your words or phrases. The Reset Chars feature is hadny for when you accidentally use the wrong configuration script and need to start over. The POSITIONAL control scripts allow you to create some unusual designs and layouts for your words. The ADVANCED control scripts include a user dialog with real-time adjustments to the spacing or rotation of characters by use of a slider bar. The SURFACE control scripts allow you add some visual effects to characters by coloring or hiding desired surfaces. What you might find most exciting is the surface script which allows you to colorize more than one prop simultaneously. Choose from one or all of the compatible surfaces and choose one or all channels (Diffuse, Ambient or Specular). Includes individual buttons for Black and White with a Color button to use the Color Dialog to get the exact colortone you desire. Lastly, have a little fun and relax while toying around with the EVERYDAY FUN scripts.
