SereneNight, there is an heroic version of M6 out today.
Thought you might like it :D


Where? Been all over the new M6 stuff but no sign of him.

I believe she is referring to the swole: http://www.daz3d.com/new-releases/michael-6-swole

I use it quite a bit. I was sorry the heroic shape was dropped.

I SECOND THIS!

I really want V5, V5 Supermodel, and M5, M5 Heroic for GF2. I think they are by far the best morphs DAZ has done for a base figure. I’d prefer a commercial product as well for quality control and updates. If they add A5 as well, then there will be no need to make an Aiko 6 and go straight to making a male figure that compliments her.

Nice to find some M5 love here smile
As I said, I really liked his face and would like to see that one transferred over to M6.
I will try Slosh’s method when I have time and see how that will turn out.

EDIT
Duh, Slosh mentioned a video and hasn’t discribed the process in this thread XD
I am thickheaded sometimes ><

I really want to be able to make the video(s) available to you guys, but DAZ is having their time at home for the weekend, so I can’t get permission yet.  As soon as I am able, and if DAZ says yes, I will re-record the videos for the latest software version (there have been changes that are different than the method I originally recorded) and post them in my video thread, which you can see linked in my signature.  I don’t see DAZ saying no, since there is already a huge thread describing the process, but I have to cover myself and wait for permission.

This is just a little teaser mainly for SereneNight.  In the pics below, Genesis is in Red Shorts and Genesis 2 is in Blue Shorts.

1.  This is Genesis in full-on M5 shape, not Hero (sorry, I would have to do some extra work to demonstrate that Hero shape) standing beside Genesis 2 with M6 Body and M5 Head.

2.  This is still Genesis with M5 body and head, but Genesis 2 with M6 Body and the head is 25% M5, 100% Genesis, and 75% M6.

So you see you will be able to blend Genesis shapes, including the base head shape, with Genesis 2 and M6 to get a fuller face, which is something you said you wanted.  Or the M5 head altogether, with no M6 head.  Applying the Hero Shape from M5 would require aligning the joints to the figure, then resizing to 108.6 (Hero Scale) and dialing out a bit of Genesis body so it doesn’t fight the M6 body shape.  If DAZ gives me the go ahead, I will provide more examples.

Edit:  The pose is an M6 Pose, so I had to use Handy Dandy on Genesis (M5) to convert the hands to a Genesis 2 Pose, but you can see it worked quite perfectly.

Wow!! Looks awesome! I hope you sell it Slosh. I can’t wait for the return of a less ridged brow.

Nice work. =-)

With a lot of tweaking I managed to get an M5 head shape, but certain areas are just not possible because the base shape is different.
Also hoping this will be out at some point ^^

Me too. my exploration with M6’s head so far have not gone as well as I like. I realize it is early days, but was hoping to be able to get going on some gen6 male art products, but not being able to get the look I want that I was able to easily with gen 5 is a big hassle for me.

I hope I didn’t mislead anyone here… I have no plans to release M5 or any other Genesis shape for Genesis 2.  I was merely showing that it can be done with a bit of work.  For estroyer, the Genesis 1 head shape has to be mixed in with the M5 shape to get a perfect match.  Right now, there is no separate Genesis head shape to mix with it, you have to use the entire Genesis body, which messes up the M6 only body that SereneNight wanted.  I have made a Genesis shape for each of Gen2F and Gen2M, with separate head and body, but I am not in any position to distribute them.  So, for now, it is my personal use only.  What I may be doing, however, is remapping Genesis 2 to use other Genesis UV sets, such as Aiko 5, Freak 5, etc.  That is dependent on interest from the community, though.

Not at all. =-)  I know you already said it isn’t something in your queue to produce. One of the reasons though I posted here in product suggestions was that I would like to see a professional product created.

Since DAZ did make the gen gen 3 and 4 shapes for gen 1, I hope they will make the gen 5 shapes.

Hey guys I just recentley purchased M3DHero HD shapes for genesis 2 male and they don’t seem to be working. I used the Daz installer to add them but it says that it cant find the dsf file…but i looked and its there.

Can you post these 2 screenshots:
1) In DS, Edit > Preferences > Content Library > Content Directory Manager, expand the “DAZ Studio Formats” and “Poser Formats”
2) In DIM, on Ready to Install tab check the “Show Details” box in the lower right
