I am still holding out for Carrara 8.5 Pro and using Genesis. But I also dread the huge heap of work that most likely will pounce me… when I move over to Camp Genesis.
The potential of Genesis is really interesting - now that I have seen various Character Morphs from example Mass Effect Game (Turian Morph and so on)—-> yep I love doing Fan Art. Simply no time and brain right now to follow up my OC projects. Maybe one day when I retire… (gets her dust-bin ready)
I have tons of M4 and V4 stuff - a lot customized either mesh or texture/shader wise. Tons of time invested, tons of money over the years and tons of “love” and “detail” which I do not want to lose when I start working with Genesis.
Can I use my custom skin shaders I created in Carrara 8 Pro, also in Carrara 8.5 Pro on Genesis?
(They are a mix between my own skin textures and the Carrara Delphinia Shaders customized for my needs)
I heard there is an extra channel/slot for Gen 4 Textures being used on Genesis…
All I found about it only concerned using DazStudio. But most who have read my posts know I hate that piece of software due it’s extreme limitations in comparison to Carrara.
Is there a way I can save the “morph” setup inside of Carrara and use it on new Gen 4 characters - should my old figure ever turn out corrupted? (I had that happening twice, lucky me had a back up)
Can I use that saved morph setup on Genesis - so that they facial features look more or less like my old Gen 4 Facial Features?
I have created various carefully morphed V4 and M4 Characters which I even have manipulated in Zbrush to give them some more distinctive features.
Do Gen4 (V4 and M4) Clothes now work with Genesis and Auto-Fit? (I am confused here - because it was said, they work on Genesis, but then again, the artists release old V4 clothes for example again for Genesis… so what’s the catch there?)
I got myself Cross-Dresser to convert some V4 clothes into M4 clothes and some M3 clothes into M4 clothes (there aren’t simply enough high quality male fantasy clothes/full-clad dangerous looking armor alá Lord of the Rings or Skyrim)
Would those transformed clothes work on Genesis as well, has anyone experience with that? M3 turned into M4 and then using AutoFit Tool in Carrara on Genesis?
Does anyone also know if Genesis male clothes can be made useable for M4? Is there any decent well working converter for this?
Because, should Genesis not be able to handle my old Gen 4 stuff I think I’ll pass on that whole Carrara 8.5 stuff and just get the clothes for conversion… and wait for Carrara 9.
