Does anyone have any clue how tall they are?

Talking about all the Gen4 models, Genesis (the basic end) and Gen 5

Guess I have to figure the heights on my own and post them up for people.

Any ways of figure a character height inside daz?

the unites are in centimeters.

Here’s how you measure a figure.  Create: New Primitive: Cylinder.  Options, select Centimeters and 1 CM.

You upscale the Y value till it matches the height of the figure.  Whatever that height is, is the height of the figure in centimeters. 1 inch = 2.54 cm

It was all done years ago, but you can use this from ShareCG : http://www.sharecg.com/v/41322/

There is a list of most DAZ characters here : http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/viewtopic.php?t=75673&view=next

Look for the post by Marcus Didius Falco near the top.

JimmyC, here’s the problem with that.  If you’re doing a character portrait and you have a specific height you want that character to be, you are, in fact, better off just using a primitive to set that figure’s height.  It’s precise and fast and does not require you have any extra pariphinalia….

I’ll go with the primavtive model way.

At least when I get the basic height, I can take away 2.54 cm to get a height guide going

Thanks wancow, the height of characters is a thing I have never needed to know really, and I am a little baffled that people want to know. 

LS Lowry nust have had a hell of a time chasing all the people in his paintings to find out what size they were grin

It’s a simple thing, really.  If I’m making a portrait of Michael Crichton, who stood six foot nine, standing next to Liz Taylor, who stood 5’2”... it would be a little strange to have them both standing 5’10.

I was told the squares on the floor grid in Daz are 1mx1m. So if you lie your figure flat on the ground (x rotate -90) you can get an estimate..just make sure the feet are touching the line:)

I made a height chart for myself, looks kind of like a police line-up chart.  I only put a mark every 6 inches, which for me was good enough.  I could modify this with more inch marks and share it on ShareCG, if anyone is interested????  Maybe even do a cm version for UK folks.

I just load it up as a prop and my figure loads perfectly in place.  Then, choose the Front camera and you get a really good guide.  Also helpful for viewing multiple characters, as you can see in my pic.
