I’m going to mull all this over. I’m not jumping in right now.

meh i’ll pass what i reallyed liked about genisis was that i could morph anyone into anything and that’s a MAJOR selling point to me. Going back to a gender split model destroys my want to buy it.

I think exactly the same.
Not sure when I’ll get her, she’s pretty, but right now I can’t spend on a figure that is more limited than the original Genesis and that is missing my favorite feature. :/

For the use of V4 skins and clothes you have to buy this: http://www.daz3d.com/new-releases/victoria-4-for-genesis-2-female
No possibility to fit M4 clothes on her ...

Not impressed by the Buy V6 Pro Bundle and receive a free item each day ... todays is Dimension Lights 1 - which I have anyway.
Another promo for those daily freebies showed the barn ...

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

So we have to re-purchase the Gen4 and Gen3 shapes for a new version of Genesis that’s now gender split?... :S

Whata scam so is genesis 2 going to be included in future releases of DS? and are going to have to re purchase all the base figures again…

Maybe once the M4 equivalent comes out, it will work? lol. Otherwise, Daz is forcing gender roles on us… there’s nothing wrong with cross-dressing. tongue wink

actually my feeling about the G2V6 release is “so far, not so good”
seems i’ll really pass on it and keep focused on generation 5 characters

That’s what you were expecting to see right Daz?

And purchase separate morph packs for each base.
Not sure I’m understanding the logic either. :S

And about Victoria 4 textures:
“Due to a limitation in how DAZ Studio handles presets, only material presets which are in DUF format can be directly applied. Any existing material presets must be re-saved in DUF format from the original Victoria 4.”

Yeah- Hellboy, can you explain that to me?  Does that mean almost everything has to be converted? I don’t know much about files, but anything like this sounds like an extra step or more that I shouldn’t have to be taking!

Going to bed now…I hope we can please try and keep an open mind until we actually get the Genesis 2 base and know more about how everything works. I’ll admit, I’m not thrilled with the figure split either, but DAZ says that Genesis 2 is a good upgrade so let’s wait and see.

Heheheh… first view of V6… after an error message “could not find file /data/DAZ 3D/Genesis 2/Female/Genesis2Female.dsf”...

... I like the advance in technology - look at how smoothly those cubes bend wink.

(that’s after downloading the “Victoria 6” product and installing with DIM btw…).

Well. I admit that I like the base figure. But I am not convinced that I *need* the base figure.

I sure don’t need any of her outfits. I swear, there isn’t anything *whatsoever* in the pro pack that I like, at all, other than the pose sets. Well, okay, I don’t hate the hair. But I’ve already got plenty of hair models.

Sorry DAZ. Not this time. Or not now, anyway.

I have no idea either.
I don’t want to be negative, but I only see steps backwards at a bigger cost.

I wish DAZ the best and really hope I’m missing the point, but for now, I’m staying with the original Genesis myself since it seems to be much more powerful so far.

Yea I agree… V6 body might be worth getting for nude renders… esp. if some of those extra thousands of polygons are in the right places. But I am not interested in another investment in clothes or tools to convert old clothes… been down that road too often.
