GeoGrafting merges the edges of the new mesh with the existing mesh and hides the old mesh that was behind the new, allowing holes and dents without having to move the base mesh out of the way or use a pose to hide it.

Wow, that is really cool! I was always curious about what geocrafting was tongue laugh

Thanks for input. Wonder if that works in Poser if I purchased at the other site? In other words if it is DSON Importer friendly.

Do they list the type of files included in the product?

Does this mean the genitalia has actually been updated and corrected for use in Poser? If so, it would have been nice if someone from Daz would SAY SO. 

Hmmm - have just reset and redownloaded the genitalia - yes, they now seem to work in Poser Pro 2012.  I repeat - it would be nice if we were told what was happening.

And on a similar point, why is there no read-me for the genitalia, just so we know what we’ve got and where to look for it?


Question - has the Philip texture been revamped? There is Hairy for Philip genitals, but not a hairy skin texture for M5. Do I need to redownload M5? I repeat - would Daz please talk to us! 


I am somewhat pissed off again at the M5-V5 Bundle. I ended up buying the V5 Pro Suite and and M5 Pro Bundle because we were told genitalia would only ever be available in them. So I got a load of stuff I suspect I’ll never use. Now the genitalia and basics are available $$$$ cheaper.

Just realised that I’m still within my 30 days - presumably I can scrap the two bundles and just get this new bundle…

I think you should do just that if you don’t need the extras in the two separate bundles. At the worst you can use the difference in price to buy some things you actually do want.

Still no textures for the female gens in Poser? I updated to version 1.5- and they are there-but I cannot find a texture-just flat grey.

Did you check the Materials folder?

It probably wouldn’t be in Poses anyway. Genesis doesn’t work in the same way as the older characters.

DAZ doesn’t like to talk about toast - or what toast can possibly be used for.

Nope! V5 Bree Torso-applies to everything-except the gens. Then Poser2012 Freezes.

I’ve just experimented. The female genitalia loads, but there appears to be no texture anywhere for the female genitalia. With M5’s toast I was able to find the texture maps and start building up a workable texture, but I cannot find any texture maps anywhere of any form for the female genitalia. Nor are there any templates anywhere, as far as I can see.  Textureless genitals are no good for anything. 

And of course, due to Daz’ infamous coyness, you can’t even check on other commercially available skin-textures to see if they are properly put together.  (One of my pet dislikes is the current tendency for male and female figures to have shaven genitalia. There is generally no way of knowing whether textures from Daz are shaved or otherwise, so I rarely buy them.)

There are other issues I still haven’t seen addressed - forced limits and scaling in particular.  Please, Daz, will you actually talk to us about what is happening!  If you want to sell Genesis to Poser users, you have to make it work properly in Poser.

I think your problem with the textures may come down to UV map switching.  I believe the genitals have a different default mapping than Genesis that can be switched in Studio but not Poser yet.

And the answer comes from DavidGB
“quote author=“DavidGB” date=“1351910750”]And the actual texture file, if you are looking for it, is runtime:textures:DAZ:Characters:MilWom:V5:FemaleGenitaliaTexture.jpg - again in the runtime you installed the Genesis, V5 and female genitalia to. Again, it is just for the actual vagina - the rest of the gens figure just takes the torso texture.”

We Poser users did NOT get this texture. I just searched my Computer. Zip NADA! COME on Daz! Please fix this! Poser users Do NOT get
” V5:FemaleGenitaliaTexture.jpg “

Coldrake

The female gens is a separate figure.  Select it first, then apply the Bree texture materials preset which should apply the torso texture, just like Coldrake mentioned.  There is no “separate” gens texture that I can locate that was installed the new gens installer: 13497_GenesisFemaleGenitalia_1.4_trx.exe.  I’ll check the old installer and see if there was one in it as mention earlier.  I’ve been rebuilding my content library from scratch and the 1.4 material preset for DS4 only applies the Bree torso map.

Edit: From my observations, the older 1.1 gens installer from 12/2011 I have installs one texture: FemaleGenitaliaTexture.jpg.  It is missing from the 1.4 installer as the DS Gens material preset does have a call to load FemaleGenitaliaTexture.jpg.  I’m not getting an error message though.  The texture is pink and mottled which I’m sure is used to color the “female bits” that you can see when you open it up with the “Separate” morph.
