genesis, unimesh, etc

edited December 1969 in The Commons

I'm So behind the times, I've been limping along with V3 and Poser 5 forever. I have Poser 7 now and a shiny new plat club membership but I am confused as to what to buy. I have the V4 and M4 bases. But just what is Genesis (also unimesh), Is there a link somewhere to explain all this? I saw the genesis morph bundle on sale but all it says for required products is 'compatible figures' . Not so enlightening in my case, lol. My budget it pretty limited so I need to get as much bang for my buck as possible...

thanks -

    Genesis is the current DAZ figure. It’s the base for all characters now. Male, female, humans, monsters... From Generation 5 to creatures like The Troll.
    It’s awesome. The only figure I use now. Here is a nice video about it.

    And the “What is Genesis?” pages:

    But note that Genesis (meaning M5, V5 and all new characters) is for DAZ Studio 4 only.
    Hope this helps! ;-)

    Yes, Genesis is DS4 only, but it comes free in DS4, which is currently free itself...

    You can't use Genesis in Poser7.

    If you have no plans to work in DS4 you should buy no genesis stuff as genesis is the DS4 product only. For Poser 7 better grab at least those generation 4 products like v4 and m4 morphs++ and muscle morphs and the $1 .99 items if you are PC member.
    Unimesh is just a base for all generation 4 figures. Kind of genesis base shape and the rest of genesis shapes relations.

    The Unimesh name is also used to refer to the way that figures like Aiko 3 and the Freak are morphs of the base Victoria/Michael in the fourth generation figures, with a Unimesh Fits add on adding morphs to support those characters to the base clothing (which has just the base shape, plus whatever shaping morphs are supported).
