I’ve begun learning Silo, and intend to use it to create content for Poser/DAZ Studio.
I’ve imported a figure from Poser and noticed that the scale is way too high, so I scaled it down to an “average” height of 1.8 (for meters). I did this in the “Size” section of the Numerical Editor.
However, when I create a Cube and set its Height to 2 in the creation options panel, I notice that it only comes up to the figure’s calves.
Here’s a picture of what I mean.
Obviously, the scale used for the Size dialogue is not the same as that in the Creation dialogue. This seems weird to me, as in other software the unit scale is consistent across all tools/dialogues.
So, my question is, why are they so drastically different? I’ve referenced the Silo manual, which comes back with a lot of broken links, which is a bit disconcerting and makes me wonder about the wisdom of diving into learning it. But that’s besides the point.
Any assistance in understanding the differences is appreciated.
