Currently I have two different style of adjustable railings. The 'Morphing Railing Add On' is simply an additional prop that would have been part of the Railings01 set if I'd thought of it in time.

...and now a diversion from my recent S.E.Asian theme... A set of four simple railing props for Poser and DAZ Studio that can be connected together to form a variety of larger railings by simply parenting, Y rotating, and X/Z translating. Three colour schemes (quayside, park, and urban) with three 'ages' (new, old, and repaint) for each. The 'old' variants use a very simple shader to combine the rust and paint in accordance with a simple mask image. In DS there are a two extra parameters on the 'Surfaces' tab under 'Diffuse' for this (see the second promo image for screenshots) The ZIP contains THREE main folders: 'Runtime', 'Runtime (Extra DS Files)', and 'DS Content'. Poser users only need the first, DS users need all three. See the readme for more details. Happy rendering!

Okay, here's a bit more flexibility for those Railings, an additional 'Morphing Railing'. Lets you bend the rails up, down and sideways and stretch or shorten them. It's just a new OBJ (a few extra rings of vertices at each end of each rail), a new PP2, (and a new DSA for DAZ Studio users to auto-apply DS materials). The files will be in the same place as the original Railing01 props. On loading it looks exactly the same as the 'Pillar And Rails' prop, i.e. one pillar with three rails sticking out but there are now 11 morph dials: Bidirectional morphs: - Shorten-Extend - same as the 'Extend Railings' morph on the original. - Horizontal Correction / Vertical Correction - extra adjustment mainly when Shorten-Extend is used with other morphs (can be used alone as a sharper Slope/Offset). Unidirectional morphs: - Slope Up / Slope Down - the start and end of each rail stays horizontal, the middle slopes up or down. - Offset Left / Offset Right - the start and end of each rail are parallel to the unmorphed rail, the middle is at an angle - Bend Left 90 / Bend Right 90 - 90 degree angle between start and end of each rail. - Bend Left 45 / Bend Right 45 - 45 degree angle between start and end of each rail. Extra morph since the 90 degree one deforms too much at halfway values) I haven't set any limits on the morphs, but suggest -1 to +1 for bidirectional ones, and 0 to +1 for unidirectional ones. Rules of thumb for using several morphs together - see the last two promo images. (The original railings are here http://www.sharecg.com/v/66987/view/11/Poser/Railing01 - they're not essential though for using this morphing rail)

Another set of *adjustable railings. Five props that can be combined to form longer more complex railings: 'Pillar Only', 'Rails Only', 'Pillar And Rails', 'Railing Section', and 'Single Rail' The 'Railing Section' prop has four simple morphs to adjust the slope and curve of the rails, and is intended for adding railings quickly to a scene. The 'Rail Only' prop is intended for joining multiple 'Railing Section' props together. To fit railings more precisely to a scene use multiple 'Pillar And Rails' props. The prop has Rail Adjustment morphs to allow the endpoints of the rails to be moved around in X/Y/Z as a group or individually, and connected to another pillar. More info in the readme). The 'Pillar Only' prop is intended to terminate a series of 'Pillar And Rails' props. The Single Rail prop is specifically for people who find the Rail Adjustment morphs too awkward. It's intended to be used with, and parented to, a 'Pillar Only' prop. More info in the readme. There are no texture images in this package (although everything is UV mapped and there's a texture template included). The default texture uses two procedural shaders (both Poser and DAZ Studio versions) - repainted green for the pillar and steel cable for the rails. Please note: the effect of the steel cable shader is very dependant on lighting and distance and WILL require fiddling around to get it to look good. See readme for ideas. I'll be adding more information and images to this page over the weekend. If you download before them please check out the readme as there's some useful information in there. *I'm using the word 'adjustable' instead of 'morphing' since there are NO morphs to alter the shape of the pillars. The morphs are simply for adjusting the slope and forwards/backwards angles of the rails.
