Okay so here goes with a load of questions.
I know how to make morphs on characters in DS4 on Genesis and props. Shoot even on Gen 4 characters in DS4 using Hexagon or other programs. I know how to get them back into DS4 to use and render for my own personal use. Same goes for items I work with in DS3. I have both on my pc as well as Hexagon and Silo.
Here is where I’m getting confused because of the few tutorials I bought or found for free they describe the how to’s for making morphs but they seem to pretty slim on how to share them legally or to sell them.
What I want to know is.
If I load Genesis, dial up the basic female shape and then export out to hexagon, tweak the shape a bit in the face or whole body and then bridge back to Daz where and how do I save it for others? I would love to see the step by step instructions including the proper file folder structure that others should receive if I give or sell it.
Now to my understanding, if I dial up any part of a daz morph package for Genesis such as V4 shape and then export to Hexagon, create a custom morph & etc and bring it back to Daz - the users purchasing/downloading would have to have the Daz morph products as well. I would love to know how to properly save my morph & package it so I’m not accidentally giving away the actual Daz morphs I purchased.
I’m also curious about how and if it’s the same for Gen 4 characters or non Daz characters.
Now if I do make custom morphs for Gen 4 characters I would love for it to be useable in either DS3 or DS4.
Now to props. I"ve been making my own props. I know the proper folder structure so that if someone downloads it they can unzip it into their DS3 or DS4 runtime. However concerning morphs for props I have made or purchased I’m clueless on that. As with the ‘characters’ I don’t want to accidentally save something that would allow someone to actually obtain a prop/product with out buying it. Example only - I buy a land prop from here or Renderosity. I obtain the seller’s permission to make a morph for it to redistribute by selling my ‘add-on’. I don’t want something saved in my files that would let person x who hasn’t bought that land prop to be able to load it up on their system.
OKay now here is another thing. I don’t have any version of Poser so whatever I make would strictly be for DS. Even though I don’t have poser, I use poser runtime structure. Do people buy just for DAZ with things stacked in Poser runtime structure. Or buy just for Daz with items that have both Daz Mats and Pz2s or just PZ2s? (don’t worry I don’t need instructions on how to save textures.) I’m just curious what people would expect with morphs. I figure people wouldn’t just buy morphs but would want a new texture with it.
ps. I’m not a newbie I promise. In the old forums I have around 200 forum posts. I’ve just been away for a while due to a death in the family and health issues.
