    Don't "fit" it. Edit the scene identification.

    Load the hair, select it (if not already) once its loaded.

    Works best with G3 to G8; can work with earlier versions to G8, but are likely to be more issues, but often worth it get all the bones available.

    Ok, I think there might be something missing in your screenshot...I cant figure out which drop down to pick to get that "Genesis 8/Female" selection to show up. I'm fitting this to Pei if that helps. Thanks so much I think I am getting close!

    Or you can try manually placing it and parenting it. Then the bones should still work...

    I do this on many hairs and they work perfectly. Make sure the figure is zeroed to make it easier. You can literally put any hair on any figure this way. Just scale to fit, use translate if needed (ie super short or tall characters.)

    I can never find the genesis 8 optioin in the dropdown and I know it has something to do with CMS from another thread, but can't seem to figure it out.. Anyone have an idea how to get it to show up

    Try uninstalling and reinstalling G8.

    Ok, i found where g8 is and selected female, but now when i bend the neck, the hair stays in place. Any ideas?

    After you change the scene identification you should be able to fit the hair to G8 and it will work normally instead of going through autofit which breaks things.

    i assume this is possible with DIM as I am not seeing an uninstall anywhere from a manual install. Guess I could try the control panel if all else fails.

    Yes you can uninstall with DIM from the Installed tab.
