It has been added to your product library. If you use the DIM you should see it in there.

It’s already been added to your account—you can download it with DIM or from the Product Library.  It’s called “Genesis 2 Female Starter Essentials”.

It should already be in your Product Library (or in DIM if you use that). Click on “My Account” at the top of the screen, then “Product Library,” then search for “Genesis 2” and you should find it (it’s called “Genesis 2 Female Starter Essentials”).

I have not felt so divided about a product as I have about the Genesis 2 figures.

The greatest strength of the Genesis figure, what set it apart from all the other figures was that it was an all in one figure. I could animate a character morphing from a child to an adult, from a male to a female. It was so versatile. Now it looks like we’re going to be strictly female only, male only and child only (I assume they’re going to eventually come out with a child figure).

This means when I create fantasy morphs I will now have to create twice as many morphs as before since the male and female figures will require their own morphs. I have no idea why they’re even calling this new figure Genesis since they’ve completely abandoned what it was that made Genesis so great.

But on the other hand it seems to so far be doing a pretty good job of backwards compatibility with the Genesis figure’s clothing so that’s nice. It means I can continue to design gender neutral clothing for Genesis 1 and have them used on Genesis 2 and only design clothing for Genesis 2 for those rare instances where for some unfathomable reason I want to prohibit 3D models from cross dressing.

I don’t know why they changed the base pose of the new figure when they could have kept the Genesis 1 pose and thus kept compatibility with Genesis 1 poses and animations.

It’s annoying that it loads with a rather generic material preset instead of the grey clay material preset of the genesis. The grey clay was much more useful for morph creation because it showed imperfections much better. It was an easy enough fix to get around but still an annoying oversight.

I think for the most part I’m only going to create stuff for the Genesis 1 figures. I don’t want to have to create two (possibly three) of everything when Genesis 1 gives me all in one modeling.

Genesis 2 might be useful for extreme closeup work of human only figures but otherwise it appears the Genesis 1 is the superior figure.

That said there are a lot of neat things about the Genesis 2 figure. It’s neat the way it adds morphs to Genesis 1 hairs to help shape them better.

Wow…. looking more at the Genesis 2 figure there are a lot of things missing from it. There’s almost no body shaping morphs included with it.  Can’t change the body mass, the musculature, nothing. You can make the breasts a little bigger but not smaller.

I certainly hope they’re not planning on phasing out the Genesis 1 figure. It’s a much more useful figure for people starting out as it is a far more customizable figure straight out of the box.

Did you install both the Poser companion files and the core files, ideally to the same location but in any event both to folders that appear in the Poser list of content locations?

Can you search for the file “Genesis2Female.dsf” and give the complete path to it?
