Will the “David BB” in Muscleman’s PA sale work with Genesis if I have the “David 3 for Genesis” product?

Will it look OK in Daz 4.0 / 4.5?

You cannot bring character morphs over without the GenX plugin afaik.  Genesis is not UV Mapped for D3 skins either, only for M4, K4 and V4.

Thanks, I do plan on buying the GenX, but Genesis will probably never be mapped for Dave?

I wouldn’t have thought so, sadly, but you never know.

Texture Converter 2 might be able to do that for you, it’s in the store here, but it is yet more expense.

The problem with using D3 (ot other third generation) textures on Geensis is that the way the areas of the body were split between different images was not the same. As a result it’s likely that some of the different Gen 3 maps (head/body) would end up on the same area of a single Genesis map, which isn’t possible.

Texture Converter does a decent job with Gen 3 to Gen 4 conversions. This is the Cade Skin on M5.
