How does valueOpDeltaAdd & valueOpTimes work?

I noticed that many JCMs and MCMs have valueOpDeltaAdd or valueOpTimes settings, e.g.

valueOpDeltaAdd
 Figure
 rForeArm:1
 yrot
deltaAddDelta 0.007692
valueOpTimes
 Figure
 BODY:1
 FBMAiko6

If yrot is set to 20 for example, what's the output of this morph? I don't see the meaning of adding a very small value to a large one.

And if I deleted all FBMAiko6 in the file including the valueOpTimes stuff, will this morph work or not? (I'm considering using a A6 obj directly instead of transforming from G2 every time)

    deltaAddDelta is multiplier, as I recall, not an addend - for example to convert degrees of roation to a 0 to 1 range for adding to a JCM's value. ValueOpTimes, as you might expect, multiplies the current value of the parameter by the other parameter (for example, to ensure that a corrective morph is triggered only when the shape it is correcting for is non-zero).

    Your .cr2 question is beyond my limited hacking knowledge,  but JoePublic put together a tutorial on Poserizing Victoria 5.  This also works on Genesis 2 figures, and I  think it will accomplish your goal of loading an Aiko 6 Poser figure with the correct UVs out of the box....

    Note the the "Speed" section can be neglected if  that isn't an issue for you, and that the figure is initially loaded via the DSON Importer, but is a native Poser figure when finished...

    Oh, that explains everything. Thanks!

    I had a look at the instruction but had no idea what he was talking about. DSON importer used to work for me but now it only reports errors. So I am using DS4.6 to create cr2 files for poser to load directly.

    I used to rewrite the cr2 file for A4 to load an A4-obj instead of a V4 plus A4 morph for speed. Then I found out that the magnets for pose control don't works well with changed verticles. Fortunately genesis uses weightmaps so I believe I can load any morphed obj without losing control.
