Advanced: Adding Scaling to Character Morphs (WIP)

This page is a WIP. There are likely to be incomplete and or missing steps while the page is being built.

This article is dependent on functionality that is not available until v4.5.x is released. Information relating to the current build status is available on the DAZ Studio v4.x page.

Summary

An optional step is adding scaling to your character. This should be done as a final step. It is easier to add morphs, MCM's, JCM's, and add the head splits, when the character is at Genesis height.
