Cynthis Starmaker uses The Tailor 1.1 by CODETWISTER to modify clothing based on Victoria 2 to conform to Victoria 3.

Step 1 - Organizing Your Resources; The Mannikin Base figure

Put this in a folder in your Poser 4 character folder. Name that folder V3Mannikin. The file The Tailor will need is called ManikkinV3b.CR2

Victoria 3 Joint Parameters

Put this in a folder in your Poser 4 Pose folder. Name that folder V3Joints .

Make a folder in your Poser 4 character folder

Name that folder “GoTailor folder.” This is where you save the .CR2 files that need to go TO The Tailor.

Make a folder in your Poser 4 character folder

Name that folder “V3Tailor folder.” This is where you save the .CR2 files that come FROM The Tailor. These are your Correct V3 Morph Clothes.

Step 2 - Overview of the actual process of taking V32 clothes into Codetwister

Download and unzip the Resource files in Poser 4. Set up the proper folders. Then prepare your clothes for The Tailor1.1. Once in the Tailor 1.1 create the morphs in your Victoria 2 clothes to fit Victoria 3. Then in Poser 4 apply and conform your new Victoria 3 clothes. You might need to tweak your Victoria 3 morph dials to get the clothes to fit right. Then pose to make art with your new Victoria 3 clothes. But don't forget that on your hard drive you will want to clean out the files from your 'GoTailor' folder.

Step 3 - Applying the V3 Joint Parameters to the dress

Open the CR2 you want to take to the tailor. I have used the V2 Morphing dress but this works on most V2 clothes.

Apply the joint parameter pose.

Step 4 - Loading the Base Figure into Tailor

Then you will load the base figure into Tailor. Load the base figure that will be in your character library in folder “V3 Mannikin” named “ManikkinV3b.CR2”

Step 5 - The Dress in Tailor

Here's what it will look like once the file “Dress.CR2” is loaded. Make sure you select the Victoria 3 morphs in your “ManikkinV3b within Tailor.

Now, in the menu bar choose “Morphs selected are like one body morph”

Step 6 - Creating the Morph

Then select Create Morphs in the dress.

Wait for Tailor to Calculate.

Select the “Save with new morph dials as they are.”

Step 7 - Conforming the Dress to Victoria 3

The next step is going back into Poser and conforming the dress to Victoria 3. Begin by loading Victoria 3 into Poser 4 by loading the dress.CR2 from your V3Tailor folder.Then conform the dress to Victoria 3.

Step 8 - Fine Tuning

Step 9 - Continue Tuning

Tweak the V3Morph Thigh dials to get most of her covered. Tweak the V3Morph Thigh dials to get most of her covered.

Test the outfit by placing Victoria 3 into a few different poses to test your image.

Step 10 - 10 Clean Up

Next, we have the cleanup. Clean out the files from your 'GoTailor' folder. You don't need them anymore. Then continue to make lovely art with your New Victoria 3 Clothes!! (Editor's Note: This is my favorite part!).
