Victoria 4 is 10; Still a Looker...

I just realized that Victoria 4, arguably the most widely used Poser figure ever, was relased ten years ago this past week...

Thanks to weightmapping and Snarlygribley's EZSkin, she still works well. 

For those who don't yet have the weightmapped version, I have the Poser Place open-source weightmapped V4 (a Python script to add a new WM rig to V4) and the Outfitter Clothing utility to transfer the weight maps to clothing on my Google Drive...

Snarly's EzSkin 3 for Poser 11 is here, which will add sub-surface scattering to any texture for either Firefly or Superfly...

    That woman sure has staying power doesn't she.  Her wardrobe puts anyone else's to shame and she has many more characters than all the Genesis models put together.  The processes for making morphs and clothing for her has been well documented, and she has proven to be a mainstay for us professional graphic artist who make real money at this.

    M4 is also very good. I think they are both very special and keep going back to them.

    Now we just need a sale so we can buy more things for them!  *wink* *nod*

  • Need a weight-mapped V4 for DS.  One that works with all of her shoes.  Maybe that should be Genesis 4 Female.

    Yes, she jumped straght in my cart the day she came out,  and I haven't really used any other female model since.

    Good one Chohole.  I guess Daz isn't making any money from folks like us.  I use the free software but now make my own items and use the huge pile of free stuff that's available.

    DS 4 doesn't use Posers parametric rigging, as a result all Poser rigged content is dragged through studio's import converter, and turned into general WM rigging, basically everything is converted into a very poor man's version of Genesis 1.

    I tried loading the Poser Place V4WM into Studio 4.9, and although it griped a lot on loading about vertex indices in the weight map being out of range,  it seems to work rigging-wise, except the ERCs for the ghost actors (buttocks, groin and breast bones) didn't import.  However, it doesn't seem to save properly...

    For a 10 year old Figure, I think she doesn't look that bad..

    I still use V4 70% of the time.

    Yeah but people have ignored and neglected Michael 4 too, in fact the Male Genesis figures have way more clothing than him and that's what pisses me off more than anything because I get to hardly use M4 it's the same thing with the Kids figures too, they are also neglected just as bad. And definately need more morph options. You can do way more to the Teens and Kid figures in Genesis or so it seems like, That means fitting Genesis 3 clothes on them giving them way more in terms of wardrobe ability. I have a converted that lets me put V4 and M4 clothes on my K4 figures but it sucks horribly bad, it's not always accurate, and the morphs for the clothing disappear soon as you convert them to the K4 figure.

    I still think that Smith Micro needs to give us a New Victoria figure. Poser is still lacking behind in features that Genesis 3 figures get, like more ways to make characters look wet and sweaty, more genital options, etc.I can't even find a decent Genital prop for V4 but I have plenty of good ones for M4.

    Victoria,  all the Victorias are from Daz,  not Poser.  We are up to Victoria 7 and Michael 7 now.   The poser figures are no longer made by Daz, that ended with the debacle around Poser 5.  So Posette is the last Daz created female figure to be included with Poser.  Victoria has alsways only been available from Daz, from V1 onwards.   They are up to Victoria 7 and Michael 7 now.
