One of the many reasons I never upgraded to genesis is because I do numerous anmated shows and comics using old gen 4 textures, so when I saw the Victoria 4 for Genesis 2 Female product I was ecstatic and bought it immediately—downside—there are no tuts and I have no earthly idea where to find the things I need to apply to the genesis 2 character and no idea what to do even if I DID locate the materials.  Also, when I tried to turn an old texture V4 preset from a PZ2 into a DUF as per request of the product maker, it just made the file unusable ( it read an error when I tried to apply it to genesis 2).  Is there any info out there on how to use this product? I am pulling my hair out.

Here’s the steps i took to apply the Misu V4 texture to Gns2F

* Load both V4 and Gns2F
* Apply the texture to V4
* With V4 selected, File -> Save as -> Material(s) preset
* Select Gns2F and apply the new material preset you just created
* In the Surfaces tab, select ‘Genesis 2 Female’ and change the ‘UV Set’ setting to ‘Victoria 4’

All done…

worked like a charm, thank you so very much—may I ask another quick question—how do you apply a character preset as well?  Thanks again so much…

Afaik Genesis2 won’t accept shaping presets from previous generations, although there is a way to convert morphs to Genesis2, see this thread.

Genesis use V4 UV mapping by default.  You can use all V4 textures on it.

But Genesis2 doesn’t.
