“OK since you asked about getting v3 clothing & items to work with genesis you will need to get the http://www.daz3d.com/shop/gen-3-iconic-shapes-for-genesis to allow auto fit to work with gen 3 items. If you want to transfer gen3 morphs you will need http://www.daz3d.com/shop/genesis-generation-x and http://www.daz3d.com/shop/genx-addon-gen3-bundle which will allow you to transfer morphs from gen3 figures over to genesis as well.”
I’m still a bit confused. I have already tried converting some V3 clothes into V5/genesis successfully using the free utility. However I notice that for example the V3 and v4 MFD dress which has “skirt” as one of its parts (and a very useful part because you can instantly adjust the y scaling and even x scaling for skirt length and width) you can’t do that using Studio 4.5 or genesis because the bone structure of the converted clothes is not the same. There is no “skirt”.
Furthermore the wonderful thing about V3 (using poser) was that every body part had scale sliders for each x,y and z axis as well as an overall scale slider. Subtle manipulation of these sliders could be done without distorting the shape, and the same scaling params could be applied to nearly all the V3 clothing I used in Poser 6. However daz studio/genesis/genesis clothing seems to have a lack of scaling params, especially in x,y,z.
I am a bit confused about what the “iconic” shapes do that isn’t already available in Studio/genesis for cloth conversion, since my install of Studio/genesis does have a legacy V3 shape among the V5/Voluptuous/Genesis character sliders. The DAZ publicity blurb on gen X only mentions V4.There’s no mention of V3. Ideally I would like to be able to use all my V3 body/face addon morphs in Studio with genesis. Would this be possible using either iconic shapes or genx, and if so, do I need both and how do I go about importing the V3 extra DAZ body/face morphs for use in Studio?
Thanks SO MUCH for any advice.
Oh…while I’m here, I cannot make the genesis/v5 eyes in Daz Studio 4.5 appear properly. They are either grossly whited out, or the irises appear so bland and washed out they are useless. I’ve tried switching specular colour to black (eyes seem to load with the default white) but it makes no difference. The eyes also lack any reflective qualities and look dead.
