Product Information

Convert your favorite Genesis 2 Female characters to Genesis 8 Female characters!

The Character Converter from Genesis 2 Female to Genesis 8 Female transfer the morphs from beloved Genesis 2 characters to the latest generation, Genesis 8. Featuring a new conversion process developed specifically for this product, the Character Converter scripts provide easy batch execution for automatically converting your Genesis 2 Female Character to a Genesis 8 Female Character in your library. Even better, icons and categories are copied from your original Genesis 2 Character to the new Genesis 8 Character. You can also automatically apply Genesis 8 materials to your converted character as part of the conversion process.

The new Character Converter script is extremely simple to use. Just select the characters to convert and click execute! There is also a Convert Custom Character script which will copy a Genesis 2 Female character in the scene, with all currently used morphs, to a Genesis 8 Female character (no character preset is created and no materials are copied).

Additional Details

  • The Character Converter script cannot properly convert all Genesis 2 Female characters. Characters with extreme morphs may have problems, especially around the eyes. Bulge maps, the Genesis 2 equivalent to corrective morphs (i.e., JCMs/MCMs), are not converted. 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.
