Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Convert your favorite Genesis 3 Male characters to new Genesis 8 Male characters! The Character Converter from Genesis 3 Male to Genesis 8 Male transfer the morphs from beloved Genesis 3 characters to the latest generation, Genesis 8. The Character Converter scripts provide easy batch execution for automatically converting your Genesis 3 Male Character to a Genesis 8 Male Character in your library. Even better, icons, categories, and the default materials are copied from your original Genesis 3 Male to the new Genesis 8 Male.

The Character Converter scripts outputs are also a merchant resource! If you own the original Genesis 3 morphs, you retain the rights to the converted Genesis 8 morphs to do as you wish.

The new Character Converter script is extremely simple to use. Just select the characters to convert and click execute! There is also a Convert Scene Character script which will copy a Genesis 3 Male character in the scene, with all currently used morphs, to a Genesis 8 Male character (no character preset is created and no materials are copied).

The Character Converter script cannot properly convert all Genesis 3 characters. Characters with extreme morphs may have problems, especially around the eyes. The Character converter script does not copy joint corrective morphs (JCMs) or morph corrective morphs (MCMs) properly, which can cause problems with some poses for your converted characters. Default materials copied to your new Genesis 8 characters may have ugly seams and/or misaligned features due to the different UV layout. Please see the product ReadMe for full details.

Additional Details

  • The Character Converter script cannot properly convert all Genesis 3 Male characters. Characters with extreme morphs may have problems, especially around the eyes. Multi-part characters (e.g., a character that loads a figure and separate horns) cannot be converted. Material presets are also not converted. Default materials copied to your new Genesis 8 characters may have ugly seams and/or misaligned features due to the different UV layout. Items without metadata can be converted but will not show up in Smart Content. They may also need to be converted using a Force Convert Item(s) button.
  • Since this product uses encrypted scripts, it cannot be used in versions of Daz Studio below 4.9.3.166.
  • PDF included in the product will show Genesis 8 Female, not Male. Because the scripts run the same for each Figure the PDF included will pertain to both
