Genesis 8 Cross-Figure Resource Kit

I would love if Daz could make a Cross-Figure Resource Kit for the Genesis 8 models like they did with G3:

There's definitely interest.

  • Indeed; this is one of the tools I'm waiting for.

    With Genesis 8 the clothing does cross fit genders now so need for this product. However, remember that the Genesis 8 Male wardrobe will not show up in Genesis 8 Female wardrobe in Smart Content because it is not Genesis 8 Female wardrobe, you must go to the Genesis 8 Male wardrobe & choose from the Content Library tab or add those wardrobe pieces via the Smart Content editing tools. Also same priciple applies for older versions of clothing.

  • Doesn't this basically just set up a morph to change the shape to fit the other gender, and then an ERC link to change the rigging? This was the impression I got from the only product I ever bought that was built with this.

    Would you know a way to replicate that?

    Yep.

    I'm going to assume you're going from G8F to G8M here.

    Morph your base clothing to fit base G8M, and load that as a morph to the G8F clothes. "Standard" name seems like it would be "XID_Genesis8Male" but you should be able to name it anything.

    Now align the skeleton of the clothes to match the G8M skeleton. Create a new parameter named "FID_Genesis8Male" (this name is important) and ERC freeze the skeleton changes.

    Make the "FID_Genesis8Male" parameter a DeltaAdd controller of the "XID_Genesis8Male" parameter.

    This will automatically read the figure ID from G8M when fitted, and dial the skeleton and morph changes to fit.

    You'll still have to save a new item with G8M as a compatibility base if you don't wish to change the base every time, I believe. I don't know of a way to give an item two compatibility bases, but there might be.

     

    Keep in mind I haven't tried doing this manually, I am simply stating the apparent results of the cross figure utility.

    I've had time to test this myself now, and it works 100%.

    I'm more looking for how to adjust the rig with morphs. The rig should change with dialing the morph.

    This is a known procedure.  Like he said, you dial in a morph, use adjust rigging to figure shape from the bone options and then use ERC freeze on that.

    I have a video tutorial on that specific thing (not on the crossfigure mind you):

    This is G2F, but the procedure has not changed.

    This response is a bit confusing in context. What do you think Cross-Figure is? What I outlined is exactly how to duplicate the results of Cross-Figure by hand. Are you looking to make a morph that adjusts a clothing rig to fit a different base, or just a regular morph? Sickleyield's video is excellent if you're just making regular morphs that need rig adjustments.

    This was exactly I was looking for. Thank you very much!
