Hi,

I have created a Genesis character, and added a jacket, shorts and shoes.

When I go to pose the character, the character, jacket and shoes all pose together. The shorts, however, do not.

I have tried a number of shorts on the character, and they all misbehave in the same way.

How can I fix this ?

thanks,
Andrew

Do you have a screen shot showing how they are misbehaving?

If you right-click on the shorts and choose “Fit to”, does it show them fitted to Genesis or to None?

Both Jacket and Shorts fit to Genesis. They are part of the same set (Magus).

Yes, but it looks like the jacket is automatically being fit to Genesis, while the shorts are not.  If you manually right-click on the shorts, are they fit to Genesis?

ETA:  That is, the shorts are made to conform to the Genesis figure, but it looks like they aren’t being conformed when you load them.

This is what is is being talked about when Fit to is said.

The Magus Shorts should not load White. That looks like the imported object file.

Here is Magus loaded in mine.

Can you give us a screenshot of the Parameters tab with the shorts selected?  It might give us some indication of how your setup is different from what happens when we try to replicate it.

Example below, from a working scene.

Not interested in the giant leap backwards that is “Genesis 2”.

1. what version of DS are you using?

2. can you show a screen capture of the “scene” tab? 

3. are you loading this from the “smart content” tab or by browsing the content library?

There is something wrong with your install of these items.  As has been pointed out, the shorts should load with a texture, yours are grey, amd they should also be conformed to Genesis.

Do you get any error messges of any kind when loading the Magus Shorts?  Have you looked in the Log File, Help > Troubleshooting > View Log File to see if there is any clue in there when the shorts are being loaded?  What is the file extension of the Magus Shorts in the Content Library tab?  is it Shorts.DUF, or something else?

I take it that you did install the Genesis Starter Essentials file, that is the installer that contains the content now, as it does not come with the main installer like it used to?

I think you should re-install the Genesis Starter Essentials, as it looks like something has got corrupted, or did not install properly.  The installer should only re-install the files that it installed in the first place.

That actually makes sense. I recently restored my “My Library” file from backup, as part of a process of reformatting my hard disk and reinstalling everything. Can you point me to the Genesis Starter Essentials file ?
