An Overview of the Genesis™ series
Genesis is an entirely new figure from DAZ 3D that relies on new technology included within DAZ Studio 4. This technology enables a single figure mesh (Genesis), with a single joint system, to encompass a wider range of full-body & head shapes and proportions than any single figure has ever been able to handle before.
The Genesis base figure is extremely versatile. It can be turned into almost any other humanoid form. For example, the Genesis base figure can be morphed into a giant troll, or down to a small child. It can be morphed into a voluptuous woman, or a muscular man. It can be turned into an anubis with digitigrade legs, or a petite faerie. The Genesis base can be morphed into almost anything imagineable. And that’s not all, every one of the different shapes that Genesis can turn into can ALL BE COMBINED.
You will be able to mix the troll shape with the child to create a troll-child. You will be able to mix the Anubis shape with an anime female shape to create a feminine-stylized Anubis character. You’ll be able to create dwarves, hobbits, incredible hulks, amazonian princesses, your own version of the Na’vi, and more.
Here’s one way of envisioning this:
Think of Genesis as a shapeshifting character from your favorite mystical/sci-fi show.
This unassuming genderless creature can change into any shape he/she can imagine and any hybrid in between. It can change into a troll or a kid… or a half-kid/half-troll or a troll/kid/woman.
This being has a series of great adventures. Along the way, it learns new things and discovers the ability to assume more forms. This figure has a mystical forcefield around its body that not only protects it, but also transforms its clothing as well. No shredded hulk pants when it transforms into a massive freak… and the clothes don’t fall off when it shrinks to the form of a small child.
How many forms will Genesis™ learn? Only time will tell. Even now there is a tale told in the far east of a mystical amulet from the 5th Victorian era that contains the magic to transform this creature into an Icon of feminine beauty. Stay tuned!
DAZ 3D is currently working on many new shapes for Genesis both internally, and through the help of the great Published Artists within our community. Any content creator can add to the Genesis “Gene-Pool” of figure shapes and thereby increase the variety of the Genesis figure.
The amazing technology behind Genesis allows for all of these shapes to easily be blended together AND allows for clothing created for one Genesis shape to be automatically fitted to another. For example, suppose a Published Artist created a dress for a new faerie morph created from Genesis. The dress would not only fit the Genesis faerie shape, but also automatically fit any other Genesis shape, from the Genesis child, to the Genesis Freak. While there are some limitations to just how extreme of morphs the clothing can be automatically fitted to, the versatility is quite impressive.
