Autofit… I’m in love

I was fooling around with clothing to get a hold of DS and I put the v4 basic wear on genesis using the autofit thing and… it fit SO much better than it ever did on V4.

I’ll admit I haven’t seen much about what the fuss is about genesis and DS over poser is, but this functionality really floored me. I hope to run into more pleasant surprises.

Is there a way to use the autofit feature on older clothing? For the M/V/A/H3 generation? What about nearme?

If you buy the Gen3 iconic shapes you’ll get the autofit clones for Gen3 figures.

Here’s the link to the Gen3 iconic shapes bundle: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/gen-3-iconic-shapes-for-genesis

Nearme doesn’t have an autofit clone AFAIK, so you’d need to convert her clothes to one of the supported figures first with another conversion application.

Ah well, there aren’t many clothes that I would put on nearme, anyway. Different styles. Thanks for the gen3 tip. Price tag is a bit rough for me for just the fits, unfortunately. I guess I’ll have to make do.

Oh, it is so much more than fits.  You also get the actual shapes as well.  You can mix the Gen3 shapes with Gen4 and Genesis.  Really cool.

I got them on sale.  If you can wait, they may be on sale again, but I do not know when.  Or if you are a pc member, you could use the monthly coupon on them to save six dollars.  They do add shapes to the gene pool so you can customize your figure more.

If you get the new RC1 candidate of DAZ Studio 4.5, it has “Push” modifier you can apply on stuff. Basically, it “pushes” the item—hair, clothes, etc—away from the body… or vice versa. Just, FYI—4.0 plugins don’t work with it yet. But when that one becomes a stable release, it’ll be glorious. I’ve already enjoyed RC1, since I lack plugins that I would miss a lot.

However, let me recommend Gen3 shapes—you can mix and match them freely between each other and later Genesis generations—so you can have, say, head that is a blend of the Freak 3 and Hiro 3. I also find Aiko 3 less freaky than Aiko 4 (dunno why, exactly—maybe she looks more like a symbolic human than thing-that-tries-to-pretend-being-a-human).

Once you have the shapes, you can use GenX, and its Gen3 expansion to import your old Gen3 & Gen4 characters & morphs into Genesis shapes. Something to consider saving up for, if you have a lot of them.

(Ignore the upgrade one, that’s only for people who bought the discontinued early version at Renderosity)


I’ll dig up the archived thread, and (I think there’s a tutorial floating around), if you’re interested.


Also, do you know about D|S4’s built-in smoothing and collision thing, yet? (I don’t have a link handy, but someone will).

I don’t MIND Auto-Fit, but if you have DS4 Pro, which is free for the time being if you don’t have it already,  then you may want to use the Transfer Utility instead. Transfer Utility words just like Auto-Fit, however it does takes a little extra manual configuration to apply each item you want to apply to Genesis. But with Transfer Utility, you keep the clothing morphs that you otherwise loose with Auto-Fit.


Like I said, I don’t mind them, it would just be nice if they didn’t warp draped clothing…

In 4.5 Auto-Fit retains morphs.  4.5 also has MANY new features.

Oh yes! Autofit keeping the morphs in 4.5 is heaven-sent!

Well the first question is, have you installed DAZ Studio 4.5RC1?

If you have, pick an item in Scene tab, then there’s that button menu at the upper corner… you know what, I’ll just show it.

Once you’ve set it to an item, you can tweak it in Parameters -> General -> Mesh Offset. This will either push or suck the item away or towards the object it has been conformed/parented to. Essentially, it controls the airspace between clothes/hair, for example.

You’re welcome! It has made fitting some older items less pain in a derriere!

I missed the push feature in the update notes, but that sounds like a very handy feature. I might just install 4.5 now….
