Taiga was a figure that came out for Genesis a while back but she had an odd deformation to her eyelashes whenever she was rendered. I bought her originally but then returned her when I discovered this.

I actually liked the morph. Has this eyelash issue ever been rectified?

    I never encountered any eyelash deformation and I've got her when she was released. Here's a render Taiga out of the box - eyelashes look ok to me.

    I think it was only in combination with other morphs.

    There is a thread about it on the old forum. Let me see if I can dig it up.

    Here's the link to the old forum. It had to do with her hair and the way it deformed around her eyes, I believe.

    I was just wondering becasue otherwise, I would love to have her back.

    The important hair fit stuff from the old forum for her is also on the new forum in this thread.

    http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/3238/

    Thorne has a link to zip that has a hair fit pose in both the old forum thread and the new forum thread.

    A link to the new forum thread dealing with her hair and to the zip is also in the current genesis product version thread, in the first post of that thread.

    So is the problem circumvented by changing the hair and not the model? I am sorry, I don't quite understand. My humblest apologies.

    Is the problem that existed before something that has been updated and changed by the vendor so that it works perfectly with the current update of the figure? If so, I will repurchase. if not I will hold off for now.

    The problem is that any hair model that is conformed to Genesis tries to follow all of Genesis' morphs, including facial ones. So sometimes hair (and it's not just with Taiga, I've had it happen with my own dial spins) will deform weirdly because of the facial morphs.

    In Taiga's case, the second layer of eyelashes is hidden, which draws the hair in.

    My solution has been to go to the properties tab, Show Hidden Properties, and then to zero out any facial morphs on the hair figure. This fixes about 75%-100% (depending on the hair model and the morphs involved) of the issues with the hair.

    I follow the same process as DaWaterRat mentioned and it works all the time. This is the same fix for when you have elf ears on a character and the hair tries to follow it.

    Taiga is a DazOriginal: taiga-for-genesis so you "only" have to wait until the DO's are on sale again :P
    And if you're a PC member, you can even use your PC-coupon on it...

    As was pointed out it is the way that hair fits to custom morphs in Genesis.

    Thorne in the thread I gave a link to made a post that goes into extensive detail on the problem and made a free Hair Fit Pose for Taiga so you don't have to do all the adjusting yourself, and gave a link to the fit pose after the detailed explanation of the problem and how to deal with it with Taiga and other Genesis morphs. The post is the 01 July 2012 05:19 PM one in the thread from my previous post. It is worth reading it as you'll run into this problem with other Genesis custom morphs.

    The hair fit pose is not included with Taiga, so be sure to download it if you plan to buy her.

    The link that Thorne gave for the hair fit pose is.

    The fit pose works great and I use it when I've done renders with Taiga.
