Genesis 3, Genesis 8, Genesis 8.1, Genesis 9… There are so many iterations now that it's hard to keep track of them all. Never fear, we're here to help you understand the differences and subtleties between Genesis 9 and earlier iterations.

The first question that everyone wants to know… “is it better,” and the short answer is yes, definitely!“ As John succinctly states in the course. This version is a case where updating the figure actually makes posing the character easier, and more logical, and gives a more realistic render in the final product.

If you are an artist that is after realism, then Genesis 9 is definitely a product you should look into.

In this tutorial, we'll walk you through the differences in the skeletal structure. Both naming and simplification. John demonstrates what bones do and how they can be used to help create a more realistic render.

We talk about the uses of the new bone “hand anchor” in depth. This simplistic name is a very powerful tool in your posing toolbox and one that shouldn't be overlooked.

Expressions have also been updated, so much so, that the name of the expression now actually represents the look that you'd expect. But we don't stop there. Mixing and matching expressions, and creating your own expressions are all covered.

Finally, we'll go through posing a Genesis 9 character using the parameters dials.

We do not cover all the methods of posing a character in Daz Studio. For that, we have the previous tutorials that still stand the test of time… Creating Poses that Stand Out.

Anyone that's either bought a Genesis 9 character or is sitting on the fence will find useful content in this tutorial.
