I have retried convert with default genesis with toe group SRM and no toe group SRM. After I ran the transfer utility for the no toe group SRM, I realized the toe bone disappeared from the sandal. But when I ran the transfer utility the second time with default genesis and project template set to SRMbootbase. the toe bone came back to the sandal. The result showed exactly the same as when I redid the toe group SRM with default genesis on the left image. However, if I set the project template to SRM no toe group, the bone would not come back and the result was shown on the right image. The sandal would fit better but still leave a gap between the toe of the sandal and the toe of the genesis. I have redone all the above with default genesis from starter essential so maybe this sandal won’t work?

You could try messing with the smoothing—more or less smoothing might help, and I’ve also had good results swapping the smoothing type from Base Matching to Generic in some cases.

But yeah, not all conversions work, and some work with reservations. I would put your rightmost conversion firmly in the “reservations” category—unless you’re getting pretty up-close and personal on the feet with your camera, and at a side angle, the imperfections of the shoe are unlikely to show. But it’s your call. smile

What set of sandals is this again?


Messing with smoothing/collision settings is good advice, I think.

The sandal is from Midnight Lace - the Negligee for V4 & SSV. I will try to mess around with the smoothing and collision. Worst case is I probably need to find another sandal to work on, but at least I have learned a little bit more about how to use the Rigging and Morphing System. Thanks for the help and suggestion from SickleYield and katfeete.

One more quick question. I saw on youtube the other day that one uses a parenting trick to move the sandal to match the feet and parent them. The video is set to private so I can’t view it anymore but I remember he uses one sandal at a time. My sandal come in pair so will I still be able to use the parenting trick? Or is there a way that I can separate the pair and turn them to one sandal at a time?

No, that pretty much only works with shoes that are rigged separately rather than in a pair.  You can separate them if you have a modeler you’re familiar with and parent the raw .obj.

<—That.  I use it all the time myself, so I’d definitely have to update it if it didn’t. wink

You need the Genesis 2 Female version.  That works OK.

I have the genesis 2 female but when I go to do the transfer unit, it doesn’t show up like it did with the regular genesis.

You need to select Basic Dress. That is the Sickleyield one.

Wilmap is basically right, but for clarification:


SRMS is for Genesis 1 only.


There IS a product that helps with Genesis to G2F conversion.  It is the Sickle Dress Rig G2F, which is here: http://www.daz3d.com/sickle-dress-rig-genesis-2-female


I wouldn’t call it a true SRMS G2F because it adds no FBMs.  I have a full bodysuit/dress setup for SRMS G2F that is unreleased because of a problem that DAZ has not yet fixed with Studio (you can’t conform G2F clothing to other G2F clothing without triggering an Autofit prompt, a problem that does not exist with Genesis).


If you want breast help with G2F, your best bet is the Breast Fixes morph pack: http://www.daz3d.com/clothing-breast-fixes-for-genesis-2-female
