Looks good.  Will she come with an Autofit clone?

She is a genesis figure, so she will wear any genesis clothing.

But will she have an autofit clone so she can wear Sadie’s old clothes?

[edit]

We have been able to create an autofit feature for this figure, so it’s pretty easy to convert her older clothing to work on her or any other Genesis figure.

...it’s not that I don’t like Genesis, I just do not think it is necessary for a character like Sadie who has her own character identity and works perfectly fine in her original form.


She’s a toon child character, why would there be need to mix her with say, an adult Vicky or even the Jasmin character (which is one of the main “selling points’ for Genesis)?


It would be like trying to make a “realistic” Mavka or Gosha which defeats the whole purpose of the original character concept.

Actually I believe smay is planning to do aMavka shape for genesis. I for one cant wait…I would also love to get a Sadie shape.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for your interest in a Sadie figure for Genesis.

I popped in to tell you that we are busy creating a Sadie figure for Genesis at the moment and to share an early work-in-progress render. This render is using Jazlyn’s texture and Jasmin’s top, but it will give you an idea of how close the figure will be to the original Sadie.

cheers,
Steve

She is beautiful…

Excellent!

What the Genesis (Gn) detractors don’t seem to get is that one of the main problems with “distinct” characters is that there are no clothes except for those made for the character.  This is why the “new Poser” characters are as doomed as those that came before.  When a character is made into a Gn shape, they automatically get ALL of the clothing available to Gn—which now includes most of the G3 collection as well as G4 and Gn.  Now GnSadie can wear anything from Victoria’s closet, not just the small subset originally created for Sadie.  The same for the new GnMavka, and any Gn shape.

I am really looking forward to the GnSadie (and hopefully GnSam to follow) with the newly available wardrobe.

The promo picture looks very good. I donĀ“t have Sadie, as I started 3D this year and I am just building my content database. Sadie is on my wishlist and if she will be released for Genesis, I am going to buy her.

Here’s an update to the Sadie for Genesis project.

We’ve been able to create an autofit convertor for Sadie’s existing clothing. This means that you will be able to use any Sadie clothing items on Sadie for Genesis (or any other Genesis figure for that matter).

Here’s Sadie for Genesis with her original hair and swimsuit…

And just because I’m in a silly mood - here’s our Genesis Troll wearing another of Sadie’s outfits…

Personally I’m happy to see that 3DU make a Genesis Version of Sadie (I wish Lady Littlefox would do the same with Cookie and Redspark with Chip). The reason why I would like to see my favourite Characters and some more (I’ve requested a Plushy Bear here somewhere in the forum) is the versability of the Genesis Character and the clothes for Genesis.

When have you seen the last time NEW clothes for Sadie in the official stores? With a little luck you’ve found somethin’ new in the Freebie section. But as a Toon Fan I like to dress my toon-characters like the ones from Disney as Princesses or whatever. And that is what I can do with Genesis and the Genesis Clothes. in the past it was a little tricky to convert the Morphing Fantasy Dress for example to Sadie, because Sadie’s Mesh wasn’t compatible with V4. Now I load Genesis, dressed her with the MFD for Genesis and dial her to Jasmine or Sadie or Amy or maybe to a mix of them all.

I think, that users should more play with Genesis and the different shapes to find out, how versatible this character is. With a few dials you can Genesis in nearly everything you want. And with tools like , Autofit, Generation X etc. the possiblities are endless.

I love to play with Genesis. Here#s a character that I’ve made in a few minutes. 100% Basic Child, 100% Jasmine (Breast is dialed back to 0) and 25% Chilbi. Just a test, nothing special ... but cute.

Cool. I thought only Daz created this feature. So you’re telling me that a vendor can create an autofit plugin as well to support their character? If so That is awesome.

That is spectacularly awesome. It also opens up possibilities for a tiny cottage industry of producing autofit plugins from all kinds of stand-alone figures.

There are a *lot* of them out there. Particularly in the anime camp. Or the Nursoda figures. Or, hell, for that matter, porting wardrobes (such as they were) from the Gen3 kid figures, or even gen2.

Hi Steve -
this is awesome news and I’m looking forward to the release!

But first a question about the WIP’s mouth area - in both your posts so far she doesn’t look like she has that Sadie Smile - she looks like she did something bad and is afraid she’s about to get in trouble.
Was that intentional? Or is that still an area under development?

Cheers -

When morphing the Genesis face as much as this, the default morphs need to be recreated to work on the new shape. At this stage, none of the morphs have been redone, so her expressions don’t really work yet.
