Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Soft Skin Transitions for Genesis 8 and 8.1 Females consists of a set of opacity masks applied to a geoshell that will allow you to quickly and easily create transitions between 2 skins applied to a single character from within the comfort of Daz Studio.

This pack was intended as a companion product for our Reptilian Skins for Genesis 8.1 pack, but it's designed to allow you to combine almost any skin* in your arsenal to create a brand-new look.

This is perfect to show a character that may have been experimented on. Or perhaps she's the product of 2 races coming together and producing an entire new way of life. It's up to you what type of meaning you'll give the resulting skin!

This utility pack consists of 3 Wearable Presets, 49 LIE Mask Presets and 18 Visibility Presets. The product should work with both Genesis 8 and 8.1. And since Genesis 3 uses the same UVs as Genesis 8, the presets should be compatible to work with the previous generation so long as the skin applied to the transitional geoshell wearable uses the base female UVs.

While this was created to blend 2 skins together via different transitions, you could push the product further by blending in other types of materials. To that end, we included 5 bonus metallic material presets to blend into the underlying skin.

Of course, keep in mind that there are limitations when using shaders, which are explained in detail in the included PDF Readme. In short, you'll need to set the tiling to 1 and use the base female UVs for the masks to look as intended. This will most certainly result in getting seams across the surfaces if the materials in question were not made specifically for the base UVs. In the case of our bonus materials, they should yield no seams.

*Important: Only skins using the Daz Iray Uber Base Shader can be applied to the geoshell, as the cutout opacity channel is required to build the blending transitions. That said, your character CAN use the PBR skin shader (as the underlying skin). It's just the geoshell that's not compatible with the PBR skin shader.

A PDF readme guide has been included to guide you through the process of using this product, from its installation to its limitations and workarounds. You can find a copy of it linked below!
