    Why a waste?

    For me wanting to use it in Carrara, I'd start by opening Daz Studio and load in Genesis 3 and Genesis 1 and deselect and hide them both.

    Load in the clothing and run the Transfer Utility to first convert from G8F to G3F, then save to the Genesis 3 Female > Clothing library under the name of the product, then delete the newly converted one and load in the one I just saved and convert it to Genesis 1, and save it to my Genesis 1 library, again under the name of the product.


    EDIT: When running the Transfer Utility, I always expand the view "Show Options", put a check in the "Reverse Source Shape From Target", and deselect (at the bottom) "Parent to..."

    see Content Generation Conversion for more details


    Carrara doesn't have dForce, but it does have availlable the even more impressive and amazing VWD Cloth and Hair! So I'd use that.

    Genus Unknown converted to blended weight works fine

    but I forgot to do the parented chains

    it has morphs including skirt movements so doesnt need Dforce

    With the Daz to Blender plugin (or is it the Diffeomorphic one?) we can convert dForce strand hair to fiber mesh. Not sure how well it would export to something useable in Carrara, however.
