...granted, I was coming from a Gen3/4 perspective because that is what I primarily work with as the Figure Mixer in S3A cannot mix toon and “realistic” meshes.


Jasmin, Amy, Chibi, and Nata were designed exclusively for Genesis and there are no standalone versions that work on older versions of Studio or Poser.

Actually, I do believe Nata was based off an older standalone Poser figure by the same name.

http://smay3d.com/free_01.htm

So as you can see, what was originally a decent standalone figure that didn’t receive much in the way of support, is now a popular Genesis shape that gets regular use and is capable of using any Genesis hair/outfit/texture/whatever for extra versatility.

On the discussion on GnSadie, I am really looking forward to her! However, there’s something about her face that feels odd. Could you perhaps post an image comparing the classic Sadie to the new Sadie? I don’t know if it’s the lighting you used or the realistic texture, but the face looks different to how I remember Sadie. Perhaps she would look better with a more toony texture, like Hitomi’s.

Sam looks perfect though. Can’t wait to get my hands on these! :D

...apparently the only version of Nata I can find exists in 3DS format (at nearly 50$ for the base figure).  Nothing turns up at Rendo or RDNA for the poser compatible version.  So apparently as with the original Sara, the character is no more.

Um, I just linked to the original figure. She’s free from Smay’s official website.
http://smay3d.com/free_01.htm
It’s the one called Nata Basics.

There’s a good chance that 3DS version, unless it was uploaded by Smay himself, is actually being sold without his permission (it’s happened before with other Poser figures, one person even tried to get away with selling V4 on a Turbosquid style website).

The original figures are not going to disappear if enough people are still using them. Just look at the Anime Doll Kit. Despite Daz releasing quite a few of their own Anime figures, figures that on the whole receive a lot more support, the original Anime Doll Kit by MayaX still exists because people still use her.

Worrying that Genesis will somehow cause the classic Poser community to commit mass suicide and remove any trace of it’s existence is a bit on the paranoid side. >.>

To answer the question posed about separate head/body morphs - Sadie for Genesis comes with a extra head morph that can be used alone for just Sadie’s head on the Genesis body, or can be used to zero out the Sadie morph to get Sadie’s body with a Genesis head.

We’ve now added a Sam morph to the mix.

S

Thanks for the answer.
Just love the Sam addition.

Kyoto Kid I think we all get how you feel about DS4 and Genesis but to honest I’m really getting tired of having to trawl through post after post reiteerating those opinions, in threads where they arn’t really relevant.
Perhaps you could start your own thread where you can post your thoughts and opinions without destracting from things others are interested in seeing and hearing about.

@Kyoto Kid. Stand alone figures are a dying bread. They are the past, Morphs are the future. Look at all those poor new stand alone figures being released, crying for content support. Reality is, nobody wants to start from scratch building a library of morphs, waiting for textures and clothing on a new figure. They have all done that dance with M4/V4. Genesis gives you a head start faster than any figure because it supports what you already have. Nothing can beat that. Vendors see it, and soon everybody will, its only a matter of time.

Agreed. This is a thread for sadie and for 3D Universe to show her and all her capabilities. Please take discussions regarding how upset you are about DAZ to another thread like the one going on in the commons right now titled: “It’s just too bad . . .  “. That is the perfect place for the discussion at hand. We would appreciate it. I don’t want to make it sound like I don’t want to hear your opinion ... because i actually do, but I’m sure the original poster probably doesn’t appreciate it and i think many here want to celebrate Sadie and what a great little new figure she is AND all the hard work that went into her.

That being said, since she is Genesis, she can be mixed with the main Genesis Figures to make new figures and wow, I really love the combos…

These are from the 3D Universe thread…

...removed all the “offending” posts.  Mods if you wish please delete all my posts (save this one) to this thread.

I apologise for the derails.

After what I have experienced with Studio4 and Genesis, I am not sold. I love Sadie, next to V4 she occupies the largest segment of my runtime. I guess I am just tired of seeing all this fawning over Genesis and feeling that my investment in this hobby over the years will be useless with all the changes that are occurring. I cannot afford to dump hundreds more out of my limited budget into making Genesis “useful”.

Studio 4.5 is buggy as all heck, I am tired of spending the time fighting bugs and playing beta tester instead of creating the pictures I would like to.

Time to move on, I have PP2012, I have Blender with the Cycles render engine, and I still have Studio 3.1.2.32 with Reality/Lux.

...and I still have my Sadie.

I am so looking forward to Sadie.

Is there any ETA for her and about what price range are you guys thinking?

I know. I have a fairy tale to illustrate with little girls as the main characters and mixing Sadie with Genesis Evolution morphs and Ethnicity morphs will bring a cast of THOUSANDS to my doors if I need it. Not to mention the possibilities with hair and wardrobe.

Great work guys! Hopefully we will see her soon!

We’ve created an ultra outfit for both Sadie and Sam. Similar to the one made for our Toon Generations, this body suit has the ability to morph into multiple styles of clothing.

It also includes a randomizer so you can easily create a unique outfit in a few clicks.

Great image. I wonder, what hair is the wavy one on the girl to the right?
