There are so many files in lots of different folders. Please can you tell me, what all I should open, import and choose in the sidebar (and eventually in which order) and which of all the files are loaded automatically when I start with a figure?

Your questions are showing the nature of my problem! I’m starting with different figures and characters. Some are appearing complete with all attributes. Others appear in simple form and I have to add textures or perhaps even more I do not know. There are so many attributes which I can browse, select and diversify in the sidebar. How do I know which character is complete and which not?

When you decide it is complete then it will be complete…the choice is yours and yours alone.

Now if you have something specific that you need help with then we are heppy to help.

Sidebars are called Panes.

Genesis a plain grey figure which is the base figure which you can Dial/Slide in the details like body shape etc via the Parameters or Shaping Pane while the figure is selected. Select the head only and you get more adjustment sliders just for the head.

M5 and V5 are Charcater presets for Genesis which load morphed in to those redefined shapes and with skin textures.
