It depends on whether you want convert generation 3 figures or generation 4, or both.

Genesis Generation X is the main item and you can convert Victoria 4 and Michael 4 to Genesis with them (works for other Gen 4 figures too, because V4 and M4 are base figures and the other figures are sort of morphs for them).

If you want Gen. 3 figures too, then there are add-ons for GenX in the shop, it depends which Gen 3 figures you want to convert.

If you want to convert all Gen 3 and Gen 4 figures, then you need GenX and add-ons for all Gen 3 figures.

... third attempt to get my answer through smile

Ok, but what about the shapes (M4/V4) for Genesis then?
Thank you, again.

Since morphs are deviations from the base shape, you need the base shape (M4 or V4 Shape for Genesis) in order for the morphs to look the same.

Since morphs are deviations from the base shape, you need the base shape (M4 or V4 Shape for Genesis) in order for the morphs to look the same.

If you own V4 and M4, is that sufficient, or do you still still need to get “V4 and M4 Shapes for Genesis” ( http://www.daz3d.com/v4-and-m4-shapes-for-genesis ) too to use GenX with V4/M4?

If you want the end result to look the same as it does on M4/V4, you need the Shapes for Genesis.  Whether a morph will look good if you use Basic Female or Basic Male or another Genesis shape will vary.
