I downloaded and installed DAZ3D yesterday… When I open it there is no “Genesis” figure, nor can I find the other models in the program. I found them in the Mac library, but it won’t let me open them. Looks like a great tool to work with, running OSX 10.6.8. ANy help would be greatly appreciated.

You need to install the Genesis Starter Essentials pack to get Genesis and all its morphs

When I dl’d DAZ3D 4.6, it said it came with Genesis and a few others… I CAN see Genesis, Aiko, Guerilla, and others if I dig into the program files on my Mac, they simply won’t open up in the DAZ app… Are you saying I need to buy the starter kit to use what I already (supposedly) have…?

Starter Essentials comes with DS. Its a separate download that needs installed

No, the Genesis Starter Essentials is a separate downloaded included with DS4.6—did you “buy” DS4.6 in the store and download from your Product Library?

Where do you have Genesis installed?  Is it a content folder DS knows to look in?

Okay, those are the Mimic configuration files.  You need to download and install Genesis Starter Essentials.
