Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Beautiful Bends now comes to the Genesis 2 platform, giving your Genesis 2 Female characters that extra touch. The provided JCMs (joint controlled morphs) for various joints gives your Genesis 2 Female(s) more pleasing joint bends when she's posed.

There's no need to fiddle with dials to get the shape you want. The morphs automatically load with the Genesis 2 Base Female figure and work in the background. Apply clothing, pose her and then render. Thanks to DAZ Studio 4's advancements, the corrective shapes are transferred automatically to each piece of clothing.

New: Support for Teen Josie 6, Olympia 6, Stephanie 6, Giselle 6 and Aiko 6.

Additional Details

  • Changelog:
    • Reworked some of the limbs JCMs to allow much greater movement and smoother transitions.
    • Support for additional character shapes: Teen Josie, Olympia 6, Stephanie 6 and Giselle 6
    • Updated the ERC code for JCM specific shapes. This mean the additional dials needed (V4 Support/Gia Support) are not needed anymore and have been removed.
    • Helper dials and the actual JCMs are now hidden by default. This is done to avoid saving their values when you save a morph/character presets. Previously, the values were saved so they were causing problems when you apply morph/character presets made with posed figures.
  • Usage Tips and Tricks:
    • Material Presets:
      • The V4 presets will load the Elite Texture Lana Reduced Resolution NoGens textures. The Genesis 2 Female presets will load the Genesis 2 Female Bree textures. These textures are included with DAZ Studio/Genesis Starter Essentials.
      • The Victoria 6 presets will load their respective textures, which is Victoria 6 Belle or Victoria 6 Anna. Victoria 6 Belle comes as the default textures for Victoria 6 and Victoria 6 Anna is included in the Victoria 6 HD Addon.
      • There are two presets for each texture/character set. One with SSS enabled and one without SSS. For the SSS presets, you will need to change the skin surface Subsurface Group ID if you want to use the presets on more than one character.
    • The light presets will load four lights - three diffuse/specular lights simulating a three point lighting and a specular only light. The three diffuse/specular lights comprised of a main light and offset (fill/rim) lights.
    • The difference between each light presets is only intensity. Here are values for each preset:
      • Lighter Ambient
        • Ambient: 195%
        • Main/Offset: 112.5%/61.875
      • Neutral
        • Ambient: 105%
        • Main/Offset: 187.5%/103.125%
      • Darker ambient
        • Ambient: 30%
        • Main/Offset: 225%/123.75%
    • The default color for UE2 light is light grey (192,192,192). You can change this to warm or cool with the included Cool and Warm Ambient presets.
    • The materials and lights presets are meant to be used gamma correction enabled and with a Gain of 1.33 and Gamma of 1.8.
    • For debugging purposes, you will find the morph dials and other controls in the Parameters tab, under 'BBGenesis 2 Female'. A 'master' Disable All dial have been placed in the main section. If you need to fine tune joints, you can do so (per joint, left and right side) through the dials in the JCMControls sub section.
    • The corrective JCMs are inside the JCM sub section. Some additional JCMs were needed for Gia, Teen Josie, Olympia, Stephanie, Giselle, Aiko and V4 shapes. They will be enabled automatically if you have either shape dialed in and influencing limbs posed.
    • Dials in the Helper section are just ERC codes needed to make BBGenesis 2 Female work. They don't have any deltas associated.
    • PalmLeft, PalmRight and SpineBase are additional corrective morphs but they are not JCMs. You can disable them individually if you wish (they are enabled by default).
  • Known Issues:
    • When used with older scenes containing Genesis 2 Female and previous version of Beautiful Bends for Genesis 2 Female(s), the Gia Feet morphs will be enabled even if you don't have Gia dialled in. They simply need to be reset to their default values.

  • 2014-10-09 - Set to load off by default.
  • 2014-06-13 - Corrected issue with JCMs always applying. Added Aiko 6 support.
