Genesis 3.1

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 15, 2017, 10:52 PM


Now that's a pretty impressive set of armor. Interesting how many products from DAZ now come in versions for both Genesis 3 and Genesis 8...that leads me to believe that Genesis 8 has not proven to be the complete replacement for the previous generations like all others were for what came before them. That also isn't surprising, considering I have yet to hear any reason why Genesis 8 is really an improvement over Genesis 3. It's the first generation of DAZ figures that I've skipped and I don't have any immediate plans to upgrade when it would require buying so many of the same products all over again.

Now to be clear, I still support DAZ. Hivewire is no competition and Renderosity is now a flea market that will sell anything that anyone cobbles together. However, I'm disappointed that DAZ has pushed Genesis 8 out when even merchants know that Genesis 3 is not obsolete yet.

Another question; why do we need an expression smoother for Genesis 8 all of a sudden? I don't remember ever having that sort of distortion or crinkles when I made extreme expressions for Genesis 3. Is this because of the lower poly count of Genesis 8 or people using Powerpose to shape individual face sections in ways that we didn't with Genesis 3?


I still don't have any plans to return to art soon because as I've previously said, I'm waiting for some bigger new advancements in Studio to make it interesting again. Was hoping that the next Genesis would come alongside DAZ Studio 5 and some new features, but that wasn't to be.

Thanks as always for continuing to visit and take care!

(yes that is my arm above. Despite making a black original character, I am very, very white). ;)

I am a volunteer English tutor for Japanese university students, and I make 3D renders using DAZ's figures and software. I'm mostly known for making seam guides (colored texture templates) for 3D figures, fantasy battle renders with my original character "Smacky", my old tutorials (like Z-Tooning) and freebies, and for my past fights with fanatical, hypocritical, whining DAZ-hating dumbasses on various 3D community forums. You can find my one commercial product at DAZ3D (Animeyes) www.daz3d.com/i/3d-models/-/an…. My Battle Bonanza poses are no longer available at Renderosity (they went into clearance and no one bought them for a month, aww).

You can download my seam guides and ancient outdated Poser freebies on my storage website at www.snowsultan.com.

Thanks for visiting!
