    @RiverSoftArt  Maybe this is a dumb question but will this also work on clothes that have been converted from Genesis2 to Genesis8 already? will it convert those to Genesis3 or should I hope for a Genesis2 to Genesis3 converter?

     

    Interested in knowing this as well (something I have been meaning to ask).

    You've created a very handy tool when it comes to converting clothing items from Genesis 8 Females to Genesis 3 Females. Would a male counterpart be in the works sometime soon?

    Yes, a male counterpart is in the works.  I think my list is longer than Santa's at this point cheeky

    Not a dumb question at all.  It should work on already converted clothes.  *But* (you knew there was a *but* smiley) I don't believe the quality will not be as good as if you went from G2 to G3 directly.  Every conversion adds some slight errors and these will build up.  Similar to how making a photocopy of a photocopy is not as good.  I have discussed a G2 to G3 converter with Sickleyield.  We will probably try one to see if there is a market.  However, other conversions will come out before that one.  

    Well then I will be standing in line waiting for the G2-G3 converter cause I 've got a bunch of clothes for G2 ,and I've learned I bought a bunch of clothes for Generation 4 ,and Genesis ,but tapered of with Gen2 .........(hint hint) got all you and SickleYield have made so far  I like being able to use my older stuff

    I am with you.  I *love* having all these clothes available directly for the latest generations.

    I see a product by RiverSoft, into the cart it goes.

    Seriously though, I still prefer Genesis 3 (if I have to be really honest), so this is a huge, awesome thing for me. You are amazing!!! Thank you!!

    LOL laugh  You are very welcome.  I was slightly nervous about this one as it is for a legacy generation, but it is doing well.

    For what it's worth, I don't consider the G3 figures to be "Legacy" yet by a long shot, given that there are still far more G3F products in the store than G8F and new ones are still being added fairly regularly... in fact, it's worth noting that there are now more G3F products out there than for any other figure that's been made since Victoria 4.  Add in the facts that G3F still has a much wider range of available morphs and base shapes, works with a number of add-ons and external programs that still don't work with G8F yet, and that the technical differences and cross compatiblity issues between G3F and G8F are much less than between any previous generations(especially  now that DAZ has more or less given up on the unique UV map nonsense,) and I think G8F is only just now starting to approach the point of being as usable and user friendly as her G3 counterpart.

    Would really like to see that.  I would also suggest you look at the possibillity of some converters to take G3 and G8 back to G2, as I imagine there are a lot of Poser users who've basically been stuck on the G2s who'd go crazy over being able to use the newer clothes more easily.

    True.  And I have a soft spot for Genesis 3 as it was the generation I started using and selling DS with.  I miswrote. smiley

    Poser is stuck on G2!  I had no idea.  We will have to try it at least once then.

    Poser doesn't support dual quaternion rigging so G3 and G8 don't work with it, even the DSON importer doesn't help.

    There's a method to get at least G3 sorta working in P11, but from memory it requires converting G3 back to TriAx rigging so it's not really G3 anymore.

    I got plenty of that...lol.  That new tank top t-shirt dress would like nice on my Ophelia 7 based character!

    Hi, 

    I purchased this RiverSoftArt clothing converter https://www.daz3d.com/clothing-converter-from-genesis-8-female-to-genesis-3-female and tired it once. It worked, but I got other stuff to do and a couple of weeks later I've tried it again and this time I can't make it work. 

    I've followed the PDF manual, and set the Output directory as it's suggested, but the clothings don't convert successful. It says that failed converterd clothes remain checked on the script and that's what happens. They don't go to the Output directory converted. 

    I've printscreened the script and the log. Maybe someone could help me.

    Thanks

    So did you remember to put the correct figure in the scene ? from your screen shot there is nothing in the scene ...

  • MortzeMortze Posts: 183

    Yes. G3 Female is in the scene (you can see in the Scene tab). I just tilted the viewpoint because of nudity censorship.

  • carrie58carrie58 Posts: 2,933

    ahhhh but was she selected?

     

  • MortzeMortze Posts: 183

    Definitely. I selected G3 before running the script. The script somehow deselects her when it's running.

    During normal conversion, the script ensures the content type of the item is a clothing (Follower/Wardrobe) or accessory (Follower/Accessory).  This ensures the script does not try to convert items that might not be clothes/accessories.  Your items are misreporting themselves as type "Follower".  You need to SELECT the CHECKED items and press the "Force Convert" button, which will tell the script that you know what you are doing and do the conversion anyway.

    It worked like a charm. Thank you RiverSoftArt for this wonderfull product!

    Hi.

    Simple question. The PDF says to put G3F into an A-pose. As far as I'm aware, G3F loads into Daz Studio in the T-pose. Where do I get the A-pose for G3F from?

    I did convert an outfit, but the legs of the suit wouldn't cover the legs of G3F.

    I'm not good at explaining things, so if you want more detail, I'll try to add more.

    Thanks.

    That is an error when copying from the G3 to G8 manual.  Just put the G3F in the default pose (T-pose).

  • Hi, I have a newbie question. In the manual it says that it is best to use the DAZ 3D/Studio/My Library path not the My DAZ 3D Library path. However, I can't find the former. I installed everything using the default settings and on my creaky Win7 machine I have C:\Program Files\Daz3D\DazStudio4 but there is no My Library path (or anything close) under that. Well, there is a libs folder full of dlls but I'm pretty sure you don't mean that. So I created My Library\People\... folders but it doesn't work. I forced the conversion since I saw the follower problem that was mentioned above but it can't write the new file. I suspect it needs admin access to write to the Program Files directory, which it doesn't have and I don't know how to grant. Where should I write the files? Below is the log. Thanks.

    I found it. In case anyone else gets stuck my purchased assets are stored in C:\Users\Public\Documents\My DAZ 3D Library\People\Genesis 8 Female\Clothing\ but the directory to write to was C:\Users\MyUserName\Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library...   I created the path \people\Genesis 3\female\clothing\  in My Library and Daz loaded the files.
