This method is no longer the best way to correctly match current Slink feet. Please watch this video tutorial.
**Notice** If you do use the below method, please be aware that Slink feet have a texture on them that shows the anatomical detail, as well as different starting colours for different skintones, and the RGB pipette method is no longer reliable. Your feet will always come out too dark.
If you follow these instructions carefully, you will have great looking feet in no time!
Resizing your feet!
The Jolie Pied HUD has a built in resize bar and reset button. The feet come out of the box at the default middle position. Simply click above or below the indicator pip to increase or decrease the size of your feet. When you have the right size, the ankle should have a seamless silhouette between avatar leg and prim foot, and no part of your avatar feet should be sticking out anywhere.
Tinting your feet
1 – Go to Edit – Preferences – Graphics and ensure there is a tick in the custom box of the graphics tab. Once the custom option is open, you should see down the bottom of the graphics tab the options to see Sun and Moon only, or Nearby Local Lights.
Check the Sun and Moon Only Option. This will stop local lighting from having any effect on the tinting process.
2 – Go to world – Environment Settings, Environment Editor to open the advanced Lighting settings. Open Advanced Sky and go to the “lighting” tab.
Set your lighting up using the following image as a guideline
- Sun moon position at 0
-East Angle at 0 or 1.
-Scene Gamma between 1 and 2.
3 – Press Ctrl/Shift/D to make your advanced menu available. If you already have Advanced in your menus, skip this step.
4 – Go to Advanced – UI – Show colour under cursor.
This will make the RGB value of whatever you are pointing at appear on your screen in the following location.
5 – Hop on a pose stand while wearing your feet and the OmniHUD. Make sure it has initialised, or the command won’t work.
6- Hover your pointer over your ankle in an area of the skin texture that is neutral – not painted light or dark. If you use the shadowed area of the ankle for example, your foot will turn out too dark.
7- Make a note of the RGB value. It will be something like 230 175 137 0. Ignore the 4th number, it is not relevant.
8- Type into local chat /13 skin 230,175,137 or whatever you wrote down in the previous step.
Your feet will change colour. Keep trying this until you get a good colour match. The absence of local lights means they will not be making your skin look lighter than it is.
- The Jolie Pied feet have a skin texture that will make the foot appear darker than it would normally with this command. You will need to finetune your colour and brightness settings
- Once you have typed in your colour command, the indicator pips on the HUD will move to that exact location on the colour and brightness palettes.
- Simply finetune your colour and brightness settings from where the pops land. It’s easy and with this system you should always have perfectly matching feet!
9- Once you have a perfect match, press one of the little colour pipettes (NOT the white or coloured bar next to it) to save your colour. If you accidentally press the bar, your feet will change to whatever colour is saved there and you will have to retint your feet.
10- Repeat the above steps for all your favourite skins. You can save them all so you can transfer the tint to all your feet.
There is a good tutorial at WhattheFUGSL which explains the above as well
