I mostly work with Michael 4 as my preferred figure, but there is a lot of hair out there only for V4 I like and want to use on him, and also lovely fantasy clothing for Genesis, too, that I want for M4. However no magnets or conversion tools (or however it’s done) seem to exist for this. Any one know if I am just missing them?

Also, Genesis is a free figure with Studio 4, correct? I can’t seem to find Genesis, by itself, in the store to buy, but I feel like I might be missing that, too.

Can’t give you an answer with the female to male hair conversion.
But I checked what I downloaded and I have “Genesis Starter Essentials 1.3”, it’s free and it should give you all the basics for genesis to work with.
The genesis figure is located at: the “smart content"tab then go to “people” and then select male or female.
I get there an overview called “genesis"and there I can select the base genesis model.
The genesis base comes for free with Daz Pro 4.5 and can be found in your “downloadable products”.

EDIT
I just tried to put some female hair on a genesis male and it fits perfectly, same goes for the clothing.
I’d say, just try it out and if it doesn’t fit properly you can always try the “autofit” tool or the smoothing modifier.

Hi what program are you using? DS or Poser?

If poser you may be able to export from DS the clothing as cr2’s if your using the latest versions.

I’m not sure if the standard clothing converters can do hair…

Actually, I only use DS 3.5 Advanced.

Is there any way I can get Genesis to work in DS3.5?

No the only way you can get any of the genesis items is Ds4…if only to export the cr2

So all this stuff for Genesis, no way to convert it to M4 or V4, huh? :(

The conversion is almost always the other way, from M4 TO Genesis, that is what the Autofit plugin in DS4 is for.  It allows users who have a large library of Gen 4 items to use them on Genesis. 

The only way to do what you want I believe, is to use Crossdresser or Wardrobe Wizard to convert the clothing.  Genesis uses the new triax wieght mapped rigging, which is completely different to Gen 4 figures, and it only works in DS4.0 or higher, that is why Genesis comes free with those programs.

Most hair is actually fairly easy to use on different figures.  Parent the hair to the head of the figure and make adjustments to the Scale and position then use whatever morphs you have to adjust according to taste.  Its worked for me many times…

Also, look at ShareCG or Renderosity, many of the hair items have refits available…it’s just finding them.

Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

It just means it’s expensive.
