Hi All,

Back with Daz for the first time in a few years, and was looking for some ideas on best items to purchase considering have now got Daz4.5 pro and a lot of old, old items including Vic 4.2.

Would be looking to create pin-up / portrait renders, although funding not at an all time high. Would probably prefer to go down Genesis route as this the new technology out.

Thanks in advance.

Derek

Genesis is UV Mapped for V4, M4 and K4, so any V4 skin maps that you have can be used on Genesis.  Most V4 clothing will fit to Genesis using the Autofit plugin (M4 and K4 as well), and several others if you buy the ‘iconic shapes’ packages which supply a clone for Autofit.  In other words, if you buy the Gen3 Iconic Shapes bundle, Gen3 clothing can be made to fit Genesis as well.

There are no Morphs++ packages for Genesis, but there is the Evolution Head and Body Morphs which do much the same thing, and I would say these are essential if you want to create your own characters.  There are loads of free items for both V4 and Genesis at ShareCG, and many other places too.

There is no need to buy anything immediately, you have DS4.5 Pro, and Genesis is free with that, along with some clothing.  You could try Autofitting some V4 clothes to Genesis and see how you get on.

If your doing pinup images you want a couple of pair of shoes. Shoes do not convert well and heels worse than flats.
