TIP: Where Morphs Appear / How They Work
Okay newbies, time to rock ‘n roll! I want you to enter Scott-L’s competition for morphing with Genesis!! Don’t be shy, don’t say you don’t know how- let me baby step what all this means.
This is in my videos, but let’s just quickly zip through some of it.
1. Genesis is a base. It is not a “model” / “character” / “figure” like Victoria, Michael, Stephanie, Sophia, Riley, Josh- it is what you load morphs onto to form these other people. (DAZ refers to Victoria as a figure, I’m just ensuring you get the gist. I think of a character as something that evolves- aka, I take Victoria and make changes and create a unique individual. She becomes my character.)
(Oh, I can’t resist this) I want to buy a Star Trek figure, I’m in love with Mr. Spock. Sadly, there aren’t any Vulcans. But look! A personable pointy eared Szark figure is for sale. (I know I’m going to PAY for this…) Wonderful face, and a body that just won’t quit. (Am I earning points here?) When you install Szark, all you have to do is go to Parameters / Actor/ and the morphs will available for you.
But you want something with a big Pepsodent smile, that will literally glow blue in the dark- YES! It is the Jaderail figure. You know that when you have a combination of Szark and Jaderail, it will be the best character ever. So you purchase, download, and install Jaderail and voila! You have his morphs in the Parameters/Actor section too! (TIP: It’s best to have your studio closed when installing content.) By moving the sliders, you can decide how much of Szark’s mouth is changed by adding Jaderail’s mouth, and you can use Jaderail’s ear shape to lower the pointiness of Szark’s ears, etc.
So now you have a pointy ear, blue, largely grinning character. Something’s missing. Ahhhhh…. You want it to have that perfectly bald head, radiating with wisdom. Let’s see…oh, the Totte figure…
You get the idea. More tips:
TIP: Mix Cartoon Characters With Real Figures
You might be surprised at what those cartoon figures can do when added to regular figures. I’ll post some for you (it’s in my second video on Fun With Morphs but we’ll have some fun. I may try some on Josh for you!

‘Nuff said. I’ve repeated this often! Strong jaws- use Benjamin! Josh really does great for noses!
TIP: Even Monsters Add Pizazz!
I’m fairly sure gorgeous Riley (two posts up) has Behemoh. Not much, but some!
