Auto-fit Clones - Genesis through to G8 - Reup

These are the very same zips from 2017. Had to update links and stuff like that. Took a little longer than expected but the good news is they are back!

The main purpose these autofit clones is to provide a work flow between the "T" clothing and the "A" clothing made for the Genesis clans, G1 through G8. Should also work for G8.1 since the bodies are the same shape.

Part 1

Part 2

And for my nemesis, yes I have permission and no the matter is not open for discussion in the forums.

    Hello, and thanks for a generous freebie. Just to be clear, because I'm not great with the technical stuff, if I install this it allows the different Genesis models to wear each others clothes?

    That's the idea. Autofit converts clothing from one figure to another: it uses a clone to adjust the clothes shape from the source figure to the target one, then rigs them automatically as you would do with transfer utility.

    As with all automatic systems results may vary. Some items like shoes are notoriously problematic, for example. But overall it works rather well.

    Gloves can also be problematic. For shoes and gloves I find it better to work with .obj files in the proper placement. [n.b. remember to hide all other figures before exporting out shoes or gloves to get the .obj files].

    I see, I wasn't sure if the autofit and clones were all part of the same process. Thanks for the info.

    Glad you are back, and with one of the most helpful files created. I use these almost every day I play around in Daz Studio

    You are all welcome, I'm glad they're available again too :-)

    I find them to be a great time saver for making clothing fit between the generations.

    @  SteveM17 Yes there is a similar process between making clones and auto-fit clones. The major difference is how they are finished off for use. Auto-fit clones are not meant to be used for anything besides making clothing fit to a figure. Whereas the regular shaping clones need to have the rig adjusted to shape and, esp. for extreme shapes, may require additional control and/or joint control morphs, in order for the character to be posable.

    TIP: for those trying to make clothing from Genesis through to G8, make and save the clothing for one figure at a time. Clear the scene and repeat the process to make the item fit to the next figure. If one takes the very same garment and goes through all the figures [saving to new names of course] one will find the end result not so great. There are rigging differences between the figures and "all" the changes cannot be accommodated without taking proper breaks. The best {ergo easiest} way I find to clear the cache of any possible residue information is to simply close D/S, then open a fresh instance. So: Genesis 1 to G2 : clear scene : G2 to G3 : clear scene : G3 to G8. Because one is in essence working from the same .obj file for the clothing, it is important to rename the clothing item with each save - and also a good idea to be sure that each save is going into its own set of data folders. IF one doesn't then one may find that the newest save has overwritten the previous save and hair hurts the head when you pull it out ;-)

    Wow. Those disclaimers sure tell a story. Sorry about any drama you had to deal with to bring us these.

    Everytime I try to make the switch to G8, I run back to G2. There are some things, especially among the regular base morph dials, that never got a G8 equivalent. But there are some good post-G2 clothing and hairs out there. Already made a G3 clone that works well, but G8 was a bit more of a challenge. This is solid work.

    Yes the jump to G8 was certainly more a challenge lol ... I tease that the next figure could be arriving in the fetal pose lol ... but seriously no. The "A" pose is to facilitate the dForce draping plugin.

    Holy crap!  These are awesome.  Thank you very much.  They seem to fit G8 clothing to G1 a lot better than the supplied clones fit G2 and G3 clothes to G1.

    Thank you. It works flawlessly with one of the most annoying (if not the most annyoing) outfits to convert from G2 to G8.
