[Tutorial] Morphs from Genesis 3 to 8 accurate way
I've decided to try Genesis 8 for my gamedev project (more about it in subsequent entries) so I had to transfer my characters (original figures, but based on Genesis 3 mesh) to it. After some googling I've found two tutorials on the matter and even one half-baked vaporware script. The approach used in tutorials was more or less the same so I've followed the excelent explanations of SickleYield and got my Olga as Genesis 8 in minutes. But... it wasn't her - this new girl surely had rickets in her childhood, her arms were curved and didn't bend correctly. There were another inaccuracies too. So it became apparent to me that easy way is not an option here :)
Actually the idea of process is simple - first make G8 look as much as G3 as possible, then use transfer utility (essentially it makes the skin-titght cloth item of the whole G8 mesh :), and finally quite opposite - make G3 into G8 stance. The problem that each of these steps brings new errors and those do accumulate. Thus w

I should be able to answer questions faster now that I'm home.  The PA Summit is always a learning experience, and I hope some of the things I learned in particular from DimensionTheory's talk on lighting and render settings will produce results you'll all see right away.

As usual, busy times are ahead!  I submitted two products for April (my goal is always two products a month, 24 to 30 a year) and Daz released them both in the first half of the month.  That's perfectly all right; I will always stand behind Daz Marketing's decisions.  But I also would like more money in the second half of April, so I've just submitted something else that I hope will be accepted tomorrow at the latest (I'll put up the sneak preview if it is).

I'm wrapping up a collaboration with fuseling today and tomorrow as well, but I'll wait on talking more about that until it's into testing.  I think it'll do well for us.

After some difficult events in 2016, 2017 was a record year for profits for me, and it looks like 2018 may be as well, Lord willing and the river don't rise.  One of the things that came out of the Summit was that I ordered an Oculus Rift, and I'm now also waiting on a new laptop to use with it.

I can confirm this is the case, but I haven't found a fix.  I checked the text of an uncompressed Wearables, and the preset does SAVE the number that is out of limit, it just can't apply it. 

If it's just a pose, not a Wearables, it will apply the pose and turn the limit off.  I don't know why it works with the pose but not the Wearables.  Maybe submit a ticket at Daz3d and there's a chance they'll fix it?
