    You can use V4 textures on Genesis by switching UV's within DS. I'm not sure about V3

    At this time V4, M4 and K4 textures will work on Genesis, any Genesis shape, (Mostly) even the V5 shape. V5 uses a new UV map so textures for V5 are V5 or morphs of V5 only.

    I hope this helps some.

    That's completely wrong. You can put V5 UVs on M5 if you wanted. Just like normal, switch the UV to V5. You just need to OWN the V5 model itself to get the UV.

    Here's M5 wearing Gabi. lol

    They're built on Genesis, not separate figures. All of the Genesis UVs are compatible with one another, just as Gen4 UVs are compatible with Genesis. You just change it in the surfaces tab.

    The male gens from Daz are only available with the M5 pro pack. There are 3rd party ones available at other sites though. Since I'm not sure about the forum guidelines for linking to those sites I'll leave it for you to Google. :)

    Unfortunately no. However I've heard of people using Texture Convertor 2 to make V3 textures work on Genesis (by converting them to V4 UVs). I think you would need the whole TC2 bundle in order to do it.

    The built in texture converter in DAZ Studio might do V3 to V4 then you could use the V4 version on Genesis. Never tried that myself but it is built in now.

    It doesn't work that way. Gen3 textures can't be loaded onto Gen4 or 5 characters, and you'd need a character with access to both Gen3 and Gen4 UVs to use the map transfer util that way.

    To convert Gen3 textures, you will need Texture Converter 2... or lots of patience to do it manually onto a V4 UV layout, which I don't think anybody has that kind of patience.
