Back again for more! smile  After a fruitful night of purchases (which I really couldn’t afford, but that’s my own darn fault), I now have the Nano Suit for Genesis. What I don’t have, though, is nay way to hide the helmet.  The readme says the nano suit comes with morphs to hide the helmet and the visor, but I have no idea how to get morphs to work.

Also, how does one parent a prop to a character?  I’d like to have a character holding a weapon, but have no idea how to make the weapon stay in place in relation to the hand.  Any advice would be most welcome. smile

Thanks again for all your help!

Hi jerriecan smile

Morphs normally work by adjusting a slider control in the “parameters” section.

select the clothing and go to parameters. look down the list of morph controls.

To parent an object to a figure’s hand,. you would open the “Scene” tab, and then drag the prop in the list,. and drop it onto the figure’s hand in the list.
this makes the prop a “Child” of the hand,. so when the hand moves, the prop also moves.

Hope it helps smile
