I’ve got a problem with the eyelids of Michael 4.
It seems that their pose can’t be exported. For the first time I need a point a view where you look in the eyes from beneath.
That’s why i haven’t noticed this error before. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a solution for closing the eyelids after exporting the model.
Here’s what I mean:

Has anyone had the same problem and knows how to fix this?

I don’t understand the question, though it may help you to know that the eyelids are not separately posable bones but are part of the head, controlled with morphs (the expression morphs will open and close them).

the question is: how can I achieve the same look of the eyelids like in DAZ after having exported them?

I think you’ve already found the problem: the eyelids don’t have any bones. That’s probably the reason why they are always wide opened after the export.
Do you have any idea how to export the right expression morph?

I’d like to use the model in Cinema 4D. Therefore I’m using the FBX format with these settings

I believe you need to click the Edit Morph Export Rules button to add the eyelid morphs - unfortunately I have almost no experience using the FBX esporter so I can’t be very precise.

I know, you can’t be very precise… but could tell me a bit more? wink
Unfortunately I don’t know how to add the eyelids. I clicked twice on ‘add’ and changed the name to ‘rEye’ and ‘lEye’.
But it didn’t work.

which format do you usually use instead of that when you export a character?
