TDMT Utilities 1: Using Restore Detail (Coming Soon) This tutorial shows the basic uses and settings of the Restore Detail script.
TDMT Utilities 2: Using Morph Trimmer (Coming Soon) This tutorial shows the basic uses and settings of the Morph Trimmer script.
Tips & Tricks 1: Using Restore Detail and Morph Trimmer to refine a shape transfer. (Coming Soon) This tutorial shows ways in which Restore Detail and Morph Trimmer can be used together to refine or correct select areas of a morph.
Tips & Tricks 2: Using geometry-insertion poses to make working with Poser's magnets easier. (Coming Soon) This tutorial shows how to use geometry-insertion poses to simplify the process of morphing with magnets within Poser.
Tutorial requires replace_geomCustom2b.py
Tips & Tricks 3: Uphill and downhill comparisons (Coming Soon) This tutorial explains ways of adapting Comparison script settings for situations involving Source and Target actors of varying mesh densities, as well as problems which may crop up and possible solutions.
Tips & Tricks 4: Ray-casting versus closest vertex comparison methods (Coming Soon) This tutorial delves into the new Comparison script option to use the ray-casting (or "closest surface") method to generate a .vmf file.  Ray-casting and closest vertex approaches are compared and contrasted, with suggestions for the best application of both approaches.
