...it morphs Genesis’s entire body. Head, body, everything. It has unwanted nipple morphs and a belly button you don’t want. There is absolutely NO option to change just the body and keep the head or vise versa. But let’s say you want to keep the head and return the body back to Genesis default body along with no nipples or belly button. That way, you can use whatever you want instead of it’s morphed body.

I have that problem. Can anyone help me solve this problem, please?

Thank you. smile

If it is an FBM there isn’t much hope…other than using something like the DieTrying pack or Ramwolff’s morphs to ‘offset’ things like nipples/body shape.  Then you can save that out as another FBM.

I wish all body morphs had a separate head dial as well. The rest of the stuff usually isn’t a biggie, but I hate it when you can’t just use a head or body.

The ONLY solution I can offer is one involving the use of ZBrush, unfortunately.

If you have ZBrush, then you load Genesis into ZBrush WITHOUT the morph and save it as a Morph Target.

Then you load the morphed Genesis figure into ZBrush and Press Tool>Morph Target>Switch.

Use the Morph Brush to paint back those areas that you want restored to the original mesh.

Then you can save it out as a morph with all the other places restored to the original Genesis.

If you don’t have ZBrush, I am sorry but I thought this may help others who have the same problem who DO have ZBrush

It’s a celebrity morph that makes Genesis look like Megan Fox. Highly accurate. But, it’s no longer available as the creator removed it from ShareCG (otherwise, I’d give you a link).

I have managed to “almost” change the body back to Genesis default and get my own body on it. But there is still that nipple and belly button problem. I’ve tried everything I could think of. I can reduce their size, make them not as prominant, but not totally get rid of them.

And I had hoped someone here knew some tricks to get rid of them.

Sorry, I don’t have ZBrush. Been thinking of getting it. All I have is Hexigon 2.5. No clue if it can do something similar.

But hey, thanks for the tip. I’ll bookmark this for later just in case I do get Zbrush one of these days. smile

As do I. Thankfully, this is not a problem 98% of the time. But there is, unfortunately, the occasional morph that does these things.

If you look at my sig, I have a number of tutorials about making morphs including some info regarding ZBrush use you may find helpful, then.

Sorry I can’t be more help. :/

you could send the megan morphed genesis to hexagon and create a morph that works with the megan morph to get rid of the nipples and bellie. - that’s what i’d do anyways.

It’s pretty simple once you’ve done it a few times.

1 - In Daz, load op default Genesis. morph genesis with the morph you want to alter.*
*Don’t pose the character or dial up any other morphs. Normally to make your own morph, you would have no morphs dialed up.
2 - In surfaces tab, switch OFF smoothing and In parameters set Resolution to “Base Resolution”
3 - File>Send to Hexagon.**
** Do not close or alter anything in daz.
4 - Edit the mesh to your hearts content. Making what ever morphs you wish.
5 - In hexagon, when your happy with your morph, (Do save it as a hexagon file as you progress, so that nothing is lost in the event of a freeze or crash) Send back to Daz.
6 - In Daz you will have a window pop up, asking you to make it a morph. Enter the appropiate details and the morph is created on the figure.
7 - Dial up the morph you have just created and see that it all works. At this stage depending on how extreme the morph is, you may wish to adjust the rigging and what not.
8 - When happy with the morph, dial to 0.
9 - File>Save As>Morph Asset, Set what type of morph this is for the category, name it something original so nothing is saved over. I generally do something like “SPYNoNipples” for example.
10 - All done. This is generally what you do to make a personal morph. I’m sure there are many more steps to be able to release as a freebie that will work on anothers computer… But for a personal morph library, It works good.

11 - Load up a fresh Genesis. Your morph should be there, in what ever category you saved it to. smile

Of course Zev0 and many others would know more about this than I do, and if they wish to elaborate on anything listed or add any extra steps, I’m all ears myself! cheese

I used Hexagon originally to make the tutorial in my sig about making full body morphs.

You may or may not find some helpful info there but most of what Spyro said sums it all up very nicely.

Ever since I got ZBrush I turned my attention it exclusively. It fills me with awe but also trepidation. The learning curve is steep but what can be accomplished with it is amazing.
