I have tried saving something as a character and it saves materials and shape.

How do I save something as an actor, though?

The reason I ask is because I see several items saved as a Character which apparently saves Materials and Shape but not geo-grafted items. Does Actor?

No idea about geo-grafting as I haven’t tried it yet, but I’d assume it’s the same as every other TriAx “actor”, file > save as > support asset > figure/prop assets

I’ll try that. I was saving it as a Character but that does not seem to save the geo-grafted items. Thanks, Bejaymac.

The geografted parts have to be saved as separate figures on their own.
They are really conforming figures that match up to the base and hide the polys below them. So they are not actually part of the base figure, they are just stuck on and interact with it.

So… saving as a Figure/Prop would be pointless…

Could I save them as a Scene Subset?

You should save as a figure/prop…....but it is only the graft part that you save. It is the conformer, you dont save genesis along with it.

my routine is:
+ extract the graft area from genesis (at base resolution)
+ model my new shape onto the graft area
+ Import my new graft into ds4
+ Convert prop to figure
+ Transfer rigging to figure and adjusting
+ Assign the polygons for grafting and hiding
+ save as conformer (File/Saveas/Support assets/FigureProp assets

I am sorry if I am being unclear. All I want to do is save Catgirl with all of her geo-grafted stuff on all at once so I don’t have to add it each time I open her.

If I ever do venture into making geo-grafted items, is that the method?
