That is a good question.
I can not point to any evidence that supports any facts one way or another how/why Werts pulled his work. As stated, I was going from memory from threads on the subject in the “General Freepozitory” in the old forums.
Yes, it was all probably speculation due to the absence of Werts verifying any reasons for pulling his work.
As to “he got sick of people always wanting something from him”, I find that odd for a creator who asked for input as to what to create for future projects. I’m not saying that isn’t the reason, but I personally participated in one of his threads for that very endeavor. I requested (requested, mind you, from his solicitation) a young Joan Chen to go along with his Rutger Hauer morph. I had a “The Blood Of Heroes” render that formed in my head when he created Rutger. Alas, it never came to pass, but someday (way, way, way down on list of importance) I will create the render I envisioned. His contributions just would have made it come to pass a lot sooner.
Your example shown is indeed a point-cloud MT. Point-cloud is just a reference to vector only meshes used in some 3D circles. For the Poserverse that is what is a legally distributed morph target. The OBJ is stripped of every data except vertex deltas.
Thank you for verifying this in Werts work. I haven’t checked any of his morphs, so I do not know, and someone previously stated they found full head data in his MT’s. This leads me to a question for you, and all; Has anyone verified that every one of Werts distributed morph freebies only contained point-cloud deltas? Is it possible one, or even a couple had full head data?
Like I said, I do not know, and I could not verify this even if I wanted to. I did not download all of his head morphs, but I do have a couple of them archived on one of my backup drives for future use.
