Genesis vs M3, V4, etc
Hello. I am a returning Poser user, I haven't used Poser for somewhere between 5-8yrs. So I am familiar with the main different figures (Michael, Victoria, & Aiko being my main experience) and that some objects like clothing (conforming, no experience with dynamic) only work for say V4 but others like hair can fit V4 & A3. I worked with Poser 5 and was only a novice, medium skill at best.
I am confused by "Genesis" and the "DSON Importer"... I no longer have my old files so am starting from scratch and am confused. I don't know what would be buying two of essentially the same thing. For instance would I only need one of the Victoria figures below to fit both female Genesis clothes and traditional Victoria items?
Victoria 5 Base
I also don't understand what clothing etc listed as "for Genesis" if that means any figure can wear it-- for instance a dress "for Genesis" and I have something like the link below and for both Victoria and Aiko for Genesis (like the first like above) would it fit both figures?
Are there cases I would need to purchase the Victoria for Genesis and the plain Victoria? Why would I need the DSON Importer? Does any of this make it easier for clothing the fit on different forms than it was intended -- like a dress either listed as "for genesis" or "for V4" can be made to fit A4, H5, M4, The Girl, and Koshini.
Actually if Poser is not listed for an item (see Female Genesis Dress link above as example) but DAZ Studio is does that mean it would still work for Poser?
I have a new top-of-the-line laptop with win 8 dedicated just for Poser , purchased Poser 9 and am itching to set everything up and use it! :)
I hope I made my questions clear, I had difficulty even knowing what to ask :-/ If I've missed something important about Genesis please feel free to include it. If not can someone point me in the direction of "for dummies"—like tutorial or something on the Genesis-Poser apparent overlapping of figures please? Not a forum please, I don't have the attention span :) :P
Thanks for your time
