Anyone got wardrobe wizard to work with Anastacia?

I was trying to get it to convert an Alyson clothing to Anastasia.  It converts fairly well to Alyson 2, but when I turn on the Anastasia morph the outfit transforms into a hideous mess.

Turned off her collars to remove the nipples poking through.

I have had quite a bit of success.  Which Alyson item are you trying to convert?

Sorry, I put my question to the wrong person.

Namrettek, what piece of clothing are you trying to convert?

It was both a general and a specific question -  I wasn’t very clear. 

I tried several different Poser 9 included Alyson items.

The one I did the most work with (and as seen in the horrible picture)  was the Alyson Leotard (the same one used in the webinar about using the wardrobe wizard). 

I couldn’t get any of the poser clothing items (alyson or alyson 2) to look even halfway decent on Anastacia.

Does one have to buy the Anastasia extra figure from Philc.net to get the Anastacia morphs to work?

I wanted to see how well it worked before I shelled out some cash for the V4 figure transfer (which is the main one I would want since I have so much V4 clothing) and I would mostly want to transfer to Anastacia.

Yes you do have to buy the Anastasia plug-in.  For all intents and purposes, Anastasia could be considered a separate figure.  I have swapped out quite a bit of V4 clothing to Anastasia.  Give me a bit (I have a large render going.), & I’ll post some results.

While I am waiting - here are 3 extended Wardrobe Wizard example2 while I was working on some test issues.

The first one is a V4 outfit (V4 Courageous outfit) here at DAZ. 

Going from left to right:

V4 (Agna Morph sold here at DAZ)
V3 (A Seven of Nine morph I got at ‘Rosity with a Andorian skin texture)
Kez (An independent figure - successor to the “K” figure
Sydney G2 (Princess Of The Pyramids Sydney Morph from Content Paradise)
Anastasia - figure in question
Miki 2 (Shizuko Morph - I don’t remember which store I got her in, either Content Paradise or RuntimeDNA)

The second image is Laura 3 (Gen3 YT female)  - The top is a top for Miki 2, and the pants are for V4.

You have shown that it can be done.  Thanks.

Nice group of Star Wars figures (heheheh Just Kidding I recognize Battle star galactica when I see it -  ok that was just mean). Very nice work on your Star Trek figures!


I included a test I did of Alyson to Alyson 2 using the Alsyson Jacket - oh boy is it messed up when I pose it.


Did you have any weird distortions from your V4 to Anastasia figure?

I’m thinking maybe these basic poser clothes are not very good meshes (but perhaps I am wrong).

What I am trying to say -  Will I get better results using Daz clothing (in your experience)?  Because if there is a lot of massaging and reworking for every outfit (more than the usual for poke through etc on nearly every conforming outfit) I am better off just using V4 as I have so many clothes for her.

I already bought the Anastasia figure (which is great) but I don’t need to shell out 20 more dollars just to have clothes that sort of fit.  At leasst not until I get better at using Poser.

The right sleeve looks as if just needs the falloff spheres tweaking - there are a couple of vertices that should be within the inner mat sophere but aren’t and so get left behind. I can’t quite figure out what’s happening on the left, but it may be the same sort of issue. You can fairly easily scale the inner mat sphere up a shade with the Joint editor panel in Poser.

What Richard said.

Go into the joint editor and increase the inner mat sphere - usually 1 or 2 percent is enough.

After 20 minutes of playing around (and looking through the manual - Yes there IS a manual!)  I kind of sort of know what you are talking about.

It’s a little confusing as to which part I am selecting and which capsule I am supposed to scale.

I did however mange to remove the ugly spikes.  I think I caused some other problems…

One of the capsules - for up down was completely over outside of her body.  After I lined that up to her body the spike disapeared but her shoulder looks a little weird.  But that may be because I scaled a bunch of capsules before I really figured out that were capsules for Alyson 2 and capsules for the jacket.

So - which capsules should I scale?  for both (alyson 2 and jacket) or just the jacket?

thanks guys for your help.  I’m actually learning some things despite my efforts not to.

I think I answered my own question.

I tried the left shoulder - and only did the jacket capsules and that seemed to work. 

It seems it was actually the shoulders that were messed up.  The capsule were hanging out in space.  I translated them over the jacket and reshaped them.

Does that make sense?

Yes, that does make sense.  When you have those spikes, you do have to know which mat sphere you have to adjust, it isn’t always the forearm or hand.
