I tried using the capability of picking up the morphs from an existing figure as per the instructions.

I was trying to transfer across the Clown Clan jester head with an extreme expression on it and the result was a bit of a mess.

Is this a too extreme case to be able to convert?

It’s a Plug in, so in the Application’s folder.

I’ve got a question too. Rather an off the wall one.

Over on Rendo Ironman13 has a couple of morph packs for V4 that are Poser only (one of them uses Poser magnets, I don’t know about the other). Is there any way to get those morphs into Studio and translated to Genesis? I do have a copy of Poser, no idea of how to use it, but it ought to be possible to load a clean copy of V4 and whatever morphs are required (probably Morphs++), inject the morph pack and do the magnets and save it. But would the modified figure even translate? Is there some way to save it that would cross over into Studio so GenX can get at it?

ETA: The 2nd pack uses PMDs. Evidently Studio doesn’t recognize those the way Poser does.

luxgabu: I would need a side by side image of the original morph and the transferred morph to get an idea what might have gone wrong. Please note that the new feature only gets the morph values from the figure in the scene. You still have to inject morphs (like the custom head morph from Clown Clan) into GenX directly by using the INJ pose.

BurstAngel: GenX is a plugin for DAZ Studio. The GenX installer should propose the correct installation path (where DS is installed).

JOdel: GenX transfers morphs only, no magnets. I have not much experience with Poser magnets in DS, but it’s possible to load them directly in DS. To transfer magnets for V4 to Genesis, it would be possible to convert the magnets to morphs in Poser (e.g. with my free Spawn FBM script), then transfer them with GenX. But this might be some work, in particular if the magnets are controlled by the pose.

JOdel: GenX doesn’t support PMD morph injections. You may inject the morphs in Poser, then save the figure with the injected morphs as a new CR2 that can be loaded by GenX.

BurstAngel: The Gen3 add-ons would still work with the new version of GenX, but they have been updated as well to support the improved morph transfer.

I have no official confirmation yet, but the readme page for DSF Toolbox is live and claims that the product has been updated for DS 4.5, so I guess the new version will be available for download as well.

New features in DSF Toolbox 1.1 are:
1. Option to create files in DS 4.0 or DS 4.5 file format.
2. Support of compressed DSF / DUF files (when reading and writing files).
3. New tab to (de)compress DSF and DUF files. This allows to change compression quickly for single files (e.g. to edit them in a text editor) or whole folders (e.g. to save disk space).

Just reset before bed here, I can confirm it’s updated!  YAY!!!

Ah, I see… DAZ is finally getting around to using zips for Win & Mac together.  Even better!  Download the 4.5 file zip.  It’s all in there.
