Amy AiMei for DAZ Genesis

Hi all,

Finally, I've finished my first DAZ Genesis morph.

I used my name as the name of the morph because it is my 3D self portrait. "Ai" in my name means "mist", not "love" as many think; "Mei" means "beauty" as usual. The written form is "靄美" (very difficult to write). My Japanese friend call me "アイミ " instead of "エイミー".

Feel free to download it from http://www.sharecg.com/v/64434/browse/21/DAZ-Studio/Amy-AiMei-for-DAZ-Genesis

Sorry, there is no texture comes with the package. With Victoria 4 UV Set selected, the morph can take any Victoria 4's textures. In the sample, I'm using the textures from my "Amy for Victoria 4".

Start to learn how weight map works in DAZ Studio 4.5. At this moment, I'm converting the outfit that I've done for Antonia to fit my morph. Now, I can wear something that I made for Antonia virtually. :-)

Here are the samples.

The scene uses DAZ Studio 3's quick start beach scene. The clothing is converted from my "Beach Volleyball set for Antonia 1.2". The hair is converted from "Sassy Hair". The images are rendered in DAZ Studio 4.5.

    Looks very nice, but I loaded the 'Amy Aimei' morph folder in the gen/base/morphs/ folder and nothing shows up under params. Any idea what I am missing?

    Haven't tried it yet, but if you loaded it while DAZ Studio was running, try closing the program then re-starting.

    Actually, did with it not running, tried refreshing the cm db also just as a precaution.. nada.

    ok.
    As I said, I don't have it. But you might try looking in the shapes tab with Genesis loaded (if it's a preset), or in My Library, people. Just trying some suggestions here.

    Thanks, but tried both of those.

    Takeo, how did you get it to work, and what hair/dress is that?

    Ty Takeo, are they both from ShareCG and do you remember artist?

    As for the morph, it's still not showing up. I'm guessing it's because I'm running 4.0x still and it might only work in 4.5

    Takeo.Kensei, thank you for the nice rendered image.

    Gedd, it is designed to work with DAZ Studio 4.5. I'm using 4.5.0.114.

    Sorry! I forgot to modify the scale of the hands and feet. They are bigger than they should be. Please download the file again. Thank you for testing.

    Thank you for replying amy. I haven't gotten around to updating yet as I plan on doing a clean install at the same time. At least now I know to try again after I update. It will be nice to have this to work with as there aren't a lot of Genesis asians yet, and this is a very attractive one. Thank you for your generosity :)

    It should work also with DS4 you must have misplaced the morph

    It was my pleasure :) it's the first time I try to render an Asian type character. There's still some work to do to get a better skin but it's a good start for a quick render

    Thank you Takeo, but I didn't misplace the morph. At least not according to either the readme or the other Genesis morphs I have.

    Tyvm for the links btw :)

    I have the same problem as Gedd, and I know I didn't misplace anything.

    Are you using 4.x or 4.5 DS TG?

    4.03

    Yes that seems to be the problem then. Not backward compatible.

  • Takeo.KenseiTakeo.Kensei Posts: 935

    It should be compatible but I've found out that it effectively doesn't work. I've sent a corrected file to Amy so that she can publish a compatible 4.0 and 4.5 version

    Thank you Takeo.

    I have added an updated version at http://www.sharecg.com/v/64489/browse/21/DAZ-Studio/Amy-AiMei-for-DAZ-Genesis-(DAZ-Studio-4.0.x)

    I would like to know how can you converted the file for using with DAZ Studio 4.0.x?

    You're welcome all.

    @Amy : I have DS4.0x and DS4.5 on the same PC. That's fairly easy to convert with that

    Btw here's a little render in blender. Got to work on the skin though

    How'd you pull that off? all of the admins in the previous discussions about 4.5 have said you can't run both on the same machine.

    I know what they said but that's possible even if not for everyone. I'm sorry but I don't want people to mess their install so I won't give a clue on how I really did that. There are already loads of posts of users having installation or content directory problems But if you want both you could try a virtual machine like VMWare or Virtualbox and share your content directories to feed them.

    Installing both 4.0.x and 4.5 on the same PC is tricky. I messed up my installation already. I've to re-install again. I think using virtual machine may be safer.

    I wondered if I just changed the line 2 in the file from
    "file_version" : "0.6.0.0",
    to
    "file_version" : "0.5.0.0",
    will solve the problem of compatibility. Could someone try?

    Patience55 and Takeo, thank you for the nice renders! Is it hard to fit clothes on my morph?
