There are some amazingly gifted artists out there distributing them. Ironman13 and Darkworld at Renderosity and Tempesta3D at both Rendo and Content Paradise, in particular, have done some absolutely amazing work that’s a fantastic base to build upon. It’s also well worth it to pick up extra eye textures like http://www.daz3d.com/shop/l-i-e-makeup-layers-for-v4 as su,btle details like smudged and running makeup and glittering eye reflections can be the key to selling subtler emotions.
FWIW, my personal process tends to be to work things out on a base V4 or M4, then transfer to the final figure and adjust for eye lines and lighting, then do a last final adjustment in photoshop, where just a tiny distortion at the edge of the mouth or tweak of the exposure on the eyes can often convey far more than what’s possible with just a morph.
Thanks for pointing these out. I’ll take a look at what’s available. Just to check - all these 3rd party morphs for V4 can be transferred to Genesis?
And what happened to Victoria 5? Is there any advantage of using Victoria 5 over Victoria 4?
Yes, facial expressions are just morphs, so they can be transferred via GenX. They will look a little different, depending on how far you take the Genesis mesh from the base Gen4, but that’s equally true if you start morphing V4 towards A4 or even S4, etc. As for V5, she’s a souped up Genesis morph, so what applies to base Genesis applies to her as well.
