  • rayme, forgive me for asking: have you dropped the"data" folder in your library? Also, is the root of the character selected?

    Sorry unfortunately I do not always get notified when there is a post in one of my bookmarked threads. I did not see your post. Please PM me with your exact issue as it is hard to pinpoint the issue unless I have more info. As far as I know there is no issue with the product, so maybe you can explain how you installed it? Thanks.

    You should probably send a message directly to Zev0. Sometimes the notifications of forum updates fail, so he may not know that you had an issue.

    If you click on the name next to one of his posts, it will bring up a profile page. On that page in the top left there's a blue "Message" button that will allow you to send something directly to him.

    how were they installed?  Have you tried reinstalling it?

  • Hey Zev0, just purchased and trying to use the Growing Up product but for some reason when I click, double click, and right click --> merge to scene, nothing happens to the figure. I'm assuming it is me. Please help.

    I have the Growing Up for Genesis 8 G8F/G8M and would like to using the Growing Up to make a girl's and boy's between 5 - 10 years old without effecting the faces and heads. The faces and heads I will do myself using DAZ Originals Head Morphs. I don't want to do all the adjustments to the DAZ Originals Body morphs to made 5 - 10 year old bodies though.

    Can that be done.

  • After buying and installing this product,

    DAZ3D pops up a prompt saying missing Genesis Starter Essential 3 whenever I load Genese 8 female figure?

    This prompt will only appear if Genesis Starter Essential 3 Female is not installed.

    Why does this product need Genesis Starter Essential 3 when it's for G8F?

    No baking. You use it like Daz head and body morphs, where it is required in conjunction with your morph. The term merchant resource will be removed because it confuses some people. Instead I will just have rules of how product can be used on description, if people wish to sell characters using it.

    Hey Zev0, sorry to open an old thread but I think that's the only way I cqn contact you. I purchased GU for Gen8 when it was "MR" i wasn't paying much attention to it until recently I noticed name change (haven't used it that much). But now I want to create young teen character but got confused with your explanation. So, if I want to release the character I made with GU, what is the procedure? I guess I load up base male character, APPLY GU morphs first and then export into Zbrush? And there I I create separate head and body morphs etc. After importing, I need to turn on reverse deformation so the morph only affects "base" figure but not your GU morphs? If I do it that way, there is no bakong which is fine and the person buying my character would still have to own GU morphs? Thanks and sorry for weird question/explanation but it's the only way I could think of getting this right. Thanks, Nejc

    That is correct yes.

  • Thanks, just wanted to make sure I don't do something wrong
  • I am trying to use your Growing up for Genesis 8 Females product on this model: SKU:72337

    When I age her back to 9-10 years old she still has small breasts. Is there a way to eliminate that? A 9-10 year old girl would not have breasts.

    Thanks

    If that figure has seperate head and body shapers, sliding the body shaper back towards 0 will reduce that. Of course this will make the body shape closer to that of Genesis 8 scalled-down.

    I see an update has been disseminated via DIM. Any info on what has been changed/fixed/added? The documentation hasn't been updated (http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/read_me/index/46393/start).

    Thanks.

    Nothing major..Was some loose ctrl linking morphs to genesis 3 instead of 8. Doesn't impact function of the product. Just under the hood cleaning up.

    There may also be a Breast Gone or Breasts Small morph that should work.  I"m not positive if these are default morphs or something I bought, but it's worth looking.  They do a much better job that just reducing body shape.

    I am noticing that some hair models seem to get distorted a bit the younger I make the character, especially as their height shrinks. Do you know why this is happening and is there a fix?

    It is up to hair developers to add Growing Up support. What you can do is dial out the projected youth morph  or other growing up morphs on the hair once fitted, which will set it more to the default shape.

    Does this product need to be updated for the new Genesis 8.1 characters?

  • Zev0Zev0 Posts: 6,462

    No.

    What do you mean by 'dial out the projected youth morph'? I am assuming this refers to how Daz Studio fits hair to characters, but I have not seen anything like this in the hair shaping parameters. Is this something that's hidden by default, and if so, how do I view and change them?

    Hair distorts a lot for me too, often to the point a lot of hair is unusable. Which is annoying since I mostly render child characters. First there's finding a hairstyle which I feel is appropriate for my character, then there's hoping it does not distort too much with the growing up morph. If I can minimize the distortions that would be great.

    I wish hair content creators would add growing up support for their hair models too.

    I would also like to thank you for creating the growing up products for Genesis 3 and Genesis 8. They are an invaluable asset for me. I use them all the time in my character creations.

    If you enable show hidden dials, click on hair item, you will see all used morphs on the figure copied/projected onto it, You can dial those down to lower distortion. It's a bit of trial and error but can be done.
