LOL!!! Another side note… If I’m doing a male item, I use base Genesis. If I’m doing a female item, I use the base Genesis female which I always set to 100% so I don’t have to remember the percentage.
When I have done high heels, I have created a high heel pose and saved it. Then set for instance Genesis base female with this pose. So, I have my pose which would need to be shipped with a high heel item before I start. I then export this out as an obj to model around.
Then, I open Daz with Genesis base, set it to basic female, set the pose and then import my item. When doing the transfer I choose Genesis and here’s what I missed forever…. there is a pull down under that, “Item shape” which can be set to ‘Current’. Then select the transfer item. My stuff comes in fit to Genesis female in this pose. After the transfer, I can set the shape to anything (pretty much) and the item still fits. Male, V5, M5, pear shape, huge breasts, troll, hag, a combo of these or whatever else. On most items I don’t have poke through unless I do a number of very extreme shapes combined and even then, normally it does good until I do an extreme pose.
Note that I thought I could do this over the V5 mesh, but so far the item only fits to V5. Doing it over basic female is the only place I have been successful. Don’t ask me about the V5 ‘suit’ I created using up lots of hours to find it would not work for other shapes. (Note: I am still on Daz 4 on my workstation at the moment. I have not tried this V5 suit in 4.5 so don’t know if this is still the case?)
But, again, I’m new at this as well so might not be giving the best advice.
