Michael, one of the most prolific male 3D models, has been held in high regard in the 3D community. Michael 6, the most recent iteration of Michael line of figures is no exception.
Handsome, stunning, breathtaking - these are just a few of the words that have been used to describe Michael 6. Not only is he good looking, but he's built on the Genesis 2 Male base which allows better bends, a better mesh, better weight mapping and better clothing fits. He will be able to morph into various ages, shapes, body types and still perform at the level you've come to expect from a DAZ figure. He'll not only look great in content designed for Genesis 2 Male, but clones for Genesis 2 Female, and the original Genesis figure all you to "auto fit" clothing you've already purchased on to him.
Some key advancements with the Genesis 2-based figures include:
Morphing (Read More)
The concept of morphing has been advanced further in the Genesis 2 product line. Genesis enabled a figure to be morphed little by little toward a child, a monster, a supermodel, a muscle-bound warrior or even an alien. Now with Genesis 2 more points of articulation, more polygons in the figures and a male and female specific base allows you to easily sculpt Michael 6, and any Genesis 2 figure, into more detailed, more articulate and more gender specific digital animation forms.
Male and Female bases (Read More)
The male and female specific bases not only allow for more masculine and feminine figures, but allow clothing to be designed more specifically for one or the other, rather than having to fit both. This makes for much sexier, and real-world like attires that drape, hang and hug where they should without causing them to stretch.
Increased details (Read More)
With over 2,000 more polygons than even the Genesis base had, the detail levels on some of the most critical body parts, like faces, feet, hands, as well as knee and elbow joints, produce a much more realistic end product.
Articulation (Read More)
No matter how good a figure looks, it has to move right. It has to react well with its environment in a realistic way. With Genesis 2, changes in level of articulation are one of the most significant updates to the base. Specifically, this includes increases in the individual movement of ears, toes, breasts, body joints and torso, as well as reworked weight mapping to show the effects of theses movements and the gravity they happen in.
Facial expressions (Read More)
In order to produce more realistic facial movements and expressions, Genesis 2 includes a dynamic and movable jaw, as well as significantly increased facial polygons and a new eye reflection mesh.
Compatibility (Read More)
Due to consistency of key body parts and shapes, such as feet, users are able to utilize content and accessories intended not only for Genesis 2 females and Genesis 2 males, but to also leverage their Genesis content through the DAZ Studio "auto fit" process. Additionally, due to the ability to go directly from a male base to another male base, the auto fit process for Michael 4 content has also been improved (this processes requires the use of the Michael 4 for Genesis 2 Male product).
Software support (Read More)
The two industry leading software products for leveraging the DAZ 3D models are DAZ Studio (which can be downloaded for free at http://www.daz3d.com/daz-studio-4-pro/) and POSER. Whichever of these you prefer, Genesis 2 will work just fine. Victoria 6, and any Genesis or Genesis 2 figure, will simply drop right into DAZ Studio seamlessly, or can be easily imported into POSER using the DAZ DSON import utility available at http://www.daz3d.com/dson-importer-for-poser.
