V3,4 and M3,4 Shapes Work!
I finally broke down and used my meager 3d budget to get the "V3 and M3 Shapes for Genesis" and I was very pleased to see my old gals again.
For the sake of getting on with testing, I used the loaded Lana on DAZ4.0, but also found 2 V4 textures from another store imported very well. The morphing is very easy under the shaping tab with a slider, I zip it up to 100% and there "she" is.
I was able to sucessfully conmingle V3 hair with V4 clothes and some Genesis hair/clothes. Very gratifying indeed! Sometimes, after posing, some tweaking is needed, but overall, looks pretty good so far. When using the "fit to" which calls up a small dropdown menu, the selection is not large, so I chose "shirt" for V3 Fantasy Necklace, and "boots" for shoes. It gets them very close and often fits well.
Of course, the "send to Bryce" won't work with Genesis, at least in my experience, but Export from Daz as obj is very well imported into Bryce--using Rashad's guidelines for scale.
Then some of the transparencies and bumps have to be tweaked with Bryce using the right export -- for writing to surface so you can tell the parts by their name. It goes pretty fast, and the renders have been very satisfying in Bryce 7 Pro. Now I am having fun. I did not like the Genesis type models I prefer the "bone structure" in my faces, and with the V3&M3; Shapes the pudginess is overcome.
Encouraged by my good results, I purchased the V4 and M4 Shapes for Geneis and am playing with that to see what can be done in DAZ4.0 and exported for rendering in Bryce. Will let you know. Have no idea if this will work or be updated for DAZ 4.5. For now, I'm just happy to mix and match and get some creativity going.
